So normally I’d only tackle one rumor or piece of information at a time, but this week has been filled with so many I feel the need to comment on two.
There is big news out there about at least 3rd gen dev. kits being circulated around 3rd party developers. Awesome news. But it’s not the 1,000 that everyone and their mother is reporting it to be. Read the quote closely:
“We have shipped over a thousand controller dev kits to developers so that they can begin getting experience with the controller mechanics”
All this means is that developers are finally getting their hands on software to start fully messing with the new controller. The best news? This means I’ll bet at least one dev. will leak something and with reports of more secrets involved in the controller…times are good for nintendo fans.
Secondly, for all those reporting that the stand is also the power supply.
No it isn’t!
That made absolutely no sense to begin with. The purpose of an external power brick is to take that huge heat source and keep it away from the processor, which helps the processor keep cool and the sytem run better. Seriously.
I don’t even feel like linking this one at all, partly because class is over now.
