European gaming publication GameReactor got up close and personal with the final Wii U hardware and snapped a series of photos from every angle. The closeup photos are of the black Wii U (the Deluxe version), and we finally get to see just how big the Wii U console is. Which isn’t that big — it’s barely longer than the GamePad itself. In fact, we’re surprised at just how small the console really is.
Despite all the modern hardware and technology, the new console isn’t that much larger than the original Wii, only a bit longer. Recently, Nintendo revealed that the Wii U is also rather power efficient, using only 75 W under full load, and just 40 W when doing anything non-gaming related. Check out the photos below.
