Internal cooling fan confirmed!
Ripten stuck around at E3 long enough to catch Nintendo employees removing the Wii U from it’s display and managed to get 36 pictures of the console from angles that Nintendo has not officially shown us.
Viewing the console from these angles reveals a few new details, most notably on the back of the Wii U does not seem to have an ethernet port. The Wii suffered from a similar design and forced gamers who preferred wired Internet connections to buy a USB LAN Adapter. This is not the final design of the console, so it’s possible that Nintendo will change this before the system launches next year.
