Not in the eyes of nintendo. I don't think they care nearly as much about specs getting leaked as they do about competitors knowing design secrets pertaining to the controller, NFC, or unique OS features, etc.

I read your post as carefully as I could, I'm not so flippant.

The main thing I take away from this is that MS and Sony already know WiiU's documented specs and thus how to counter them.

In IdeaMan's defence,

Guys, don't forget, English is not IdeaMan's first language....so you have to understand he may not properly communicate the context correctly or he may end up confusing posters because of the way his sentences are structured.

Don't take it too crazy guys...appreciate whatever he posts and don't read too much into it.

Its subjective whether you want to/don't want to believe it.

I don't see how Ideaman think's it's obvious what things devs don't know about the Wii U that's not specs or controller stuff? There's little more to a normal console anyway. Is he talking about the power supply? The colour of the cables? What rubber was used on the console's feet? Will it be a robot? The only thing I think we've heard lately is this rumoured Nintendo card thingy that people might get. Personally I hope it's not that, it's of little to no use to me other than for logging in.

Other than that, it could be ANYTHING. Maybe the Wii U controller is just a shell for a Nintendo 7"tablet that slots in?

Very good news. Assuming the next XBox and PS4 have an upper bound of 4GB, this puts Wii U as the PS2 to their XBox, which I'm sure is a position Nintendo would be very happy to be in.

Also good news! Even better when I consider that this is probably only on the basis of second/third party titles, given how air-tight Nintendo are.

I'd probably end up triple-dipping with Fallout 3 on Wii U if were bug free and had the Pip-Boy on the Wii U pad screen. For the sake of my wallet, I hope that doesn't happen.

Also, IdeaMan is probably talking about the console's online functionality, although I think he also previously mentioned features like the Wii U pad's camera not yet being usable by devs.

It took more time than i imagined but we got winners :p

It's the second IdeaMan's info of the night, after the previous one about dev kits seals, etc.

Third-parties are left in a rather vague status about the system software layer/OS. They are warned by Nintendo or informed through SDK documentation/warioworld of its expected features, but that's nearly it. A LOT is still unknown to them in regard to this aspect of the Wii U, and for example, the real dashboard isn't implemented yet. They basically are aware of the presence of a future strong software side for the console, a few functions from it, but don't know how it will look like, in terms of UI/interface, don't know all the features, etc.

Man, I thought I was joking when I said the size of the icons and whether we can move them.

So Nintendo has all these protections in place on their dev kits just so people won't know about the sorts of functions available on the dashboard, and while MS and Sony already know all the documented specs, they'd really want to get their hands on this info?

I don't doubt you or anything, it just seems weird.
