I mean...43% SLOWER than what's in PS3 and 360. I mean...I literally cannot think of how they came to that. It couldn't have been that much more expensive, could it?
And the fact is they're losing money on this system, and it's all because of that controller. What were they thinking? Ditch the NFC, make it a pack-in for "Pokemon Snap The Revenge" and shave enough money from the controller to get better ram.
What I have yet to read is if the RAM is dual channel or not. That would take the 12.8 number that is floating about and make it 25.6, a much better number.
I just find it hard to believe that after all the complaints about how extremely underpowered the Wii was and how 3rd party devs and 'core gamers' didn't want it, that Nintendo would just go and do it all over again.
