Take a look at the insides of the Wii U photo



Psst! Hey, you. Yeah, I'm talking to you. You wanna see some pictures of the Wii U without, you know, anything on? Yeeeeah, I know you do I... okay I'm freaking myself out now.

In Nintendo's latest Ask Iwata, the team dive into the Wii U's insides in an interview spanning 4-pages, complete with comparisons to the Wii. Even things such as the heat sink are discussed in detail, with Kitano explaining how: 

"...a major change was having only one heat source. The Wii had two, so we had to cool both. This is for Wii, and this is the one for Wii U, but to dissipate heat, we had to put in a heat sink like this [image below]."

There is a lot discussed in the interview, and I highly suggest that any Wii U enthusiasts out there read the whole thing here.

Xbox One controller adapts, goes wireless on PC this year

At GDC 2015, Microsoft announced plans to release a wireless adapter for Xbox One controllers on Windows later this year. Great news, but we need dates, Phil Spencer. Specific dates! I had terrible luck with my wireless adapter for the Xbox 360 gamepad -- damn thing was spotty at best, non-functional at worst -- so here's hoping these new ones are an improvement.more

Oh hey, this looks like the final Steam Controller

Weird as it might still look, you have to admit that Valve's Steam Controller has come far. Remember this photo? Or this more recent one? It's like leafing through your worst yearbooks. Given that I play PC-centric games with...more
