Latest Wii U dev kits coming some time in July

Nintendo is currently updating their current dev kits, with the new hardware making it to developers sometime in July. With Reggie saying that we have only seen 10% of what the Wii U can do and the recent news that the developers current Wii U units are underclocked this is quite interesting news.

When those kits arrive, there will be “more information” about unknown aspects such as raw machine power and online capabilities, Sega Europe MD of development Gary Dunn explained. “It’s still a little early. There’s another generation of prototype hardware coming out in June or July that’s going to give us more information,” Dunn told Eurogamer.

Dunn wouldn’t say whether this means that the Wii U would be more powerful than the PS3 and 360. He instead said that “It’s too early to call,”and “It’s different.”

Sega’s first reaction to the Wii U was that they were finding it “quite powerful”. The mind can only wonder how powerful they will find these new units.
