Yet more unconfirmed gaming news
today, this time on the Wii
front; Maxconsole is claiming a Wii developer hooked them up with a slew of deets on the Wii's hardware, some of which does
and does not jibe
with things we've been hearing over the past year. They're claiming will be comprised of a 729MHz CPU ("Broadway), a 243MHz GPU ("Hollywood," which is supposed no different than the GameCube GPU, just faster), 64MB of GDDR3 RAM, 4.7 or 8.51GB single/double-sided disc drive, and optional Ethernet adapter. Apparently the Wii's I/O options will also be as follows: SD card slot, two USB 2.0, WiFi, four GameCube controller ports, two GameCube memory card slots, and an analog-only AV multi output jack. That's all well and good, but we're kind of beyond the point of obsessing over the specs on this thing, you know? We know it's not doing high def, and Nintendo's not exactly making a big stink about what a performer the Wii's going to be. So for right now you could say we're a little more bent on getting a release date and official price more than anything else.
