Where did you find that!?
I think its FAKE :P, nintendo isnt that cheap with logo's.
pretty cool though.... what is the unit infront (if it is a fake).... any chance of more pictures :D
you must be kidding...Originally Posted by wombat
the dolphin logo... and the ultra 64 must have been knocked up in MS Word...
I think you mean MS paint
Nar, word does that crappy grad text... or 'word art'
im pretty sure that the pic is genuine.
okay you have an point I actually forgot about the devlogo's and was thinking about the consumer logo's (gamecube, n64 etc)... so yeah indeed it can actually be real :)Originally Posted by adam-james
hmm the upper part looks like one the old radios or maybe the combined gamecube with dvd player
and the lower part hmm this blue light anyone remembers these funny new flashlights called "photonpumps" =)
but nevertheless nice image where did you found it ?
It wouldn't have open circuit boards on it for sure.
I liked that Ultas 64 badge!!
I'm assuming that this was regarding the same pic, but the bandwidth is exceeded on this one.
Oh wait, now I see it - same pic, only darker ;)
Neo-geo.com - fuelling Dion's ego for the past 10 years!
i just wasted time of my life..lol
those boards were full of people saying "OmFG!!!11 That pic is teh fAke!!!11"
acording to the original source one of the poster ins the boards from the links above the system has already changed very dramaticly to the state when the pictures where takenOriginally Posted by ASSEMbler
also he stated that they where experiementing with the unit so the thing was open
now my little question since its a prototype and following the history of nintendo most time these are send out very late in development to the us, is it normal that the info in the screen (temperature, voltage and so on) are in english ?
or do normal the normal japanese dev units display such stuff in japanese ?
for example when you switch on one of the gamecube or n64 dev units is the text all japanese or only english or mixed ?
It seems beleivable that this is the Revolution dev HW, but then again, I'm very gullible.

Whats that light in the bottom? Looks like the size of a small LED flashlight...
Temperatures and core voltage check out about right, plus if it's getting that hot that could be another reason why the sides are off. Other than that it's impossible to say, it could be faked but it could be real. I'd side with the latter, though not by a whole lot.
Are the english words that surprising? I thought that the Japanese often used english words for basic stuff.
funny how the pic doesn't show the unit fully, and the lighting is bad. You don't need the light off to get a screen shot, I say dubious.
Call me a skeptic, but this just screams "fake" to me.
this picture suffers from alot of stereotypical fake syndrome:
-the picture is in low resoluton
-the light is saturated (too bright and/or too dark)
-you can't see alot of things
-there's only one picture
-the picture seems pointless, took from a bad angle to see anything really interesting and specific
-the thing looks cheap (well, sometimes dev are like that, but...)
-you don't see any devices and/or boards (well, you don't see anything too complicated in fact)
-it's all around the web, everywhere (odd for a dev of an unreleased console)
-there's some hidden little details that can be revealed to look more like something real. reallity is always unperfect.... but you do try to make everything perfect when you take a picture of something really interesting, doing it so ''real''-like just seems to stereotypical. (plus, the picture is unperfect in alot of ways (see above)
-there's this big Logo in the middle of the picture that's trying to prove and save something...hell, if you wanted to prove it is real (if it's really is) take a picture without all those mistakes listed above!
-everything's too ''opened'' to thoughts, the logo is vague, unprecise as well as many other thing.
-That guy's drinking Pepsi, you heard? PEPSI!
i don't say it is fake, but it really looks like one, in my opinion. ;)
