Even after all this time, (laughs) is still hilarious.

I am surprised and pleased to hear about how much testing went into how the console will deal with heat though.

Crazy to think how this one teeny tiny little thing has caused so much debate.

Tell me about it. These images should answer a few questions within a few hours at least, but then raise a billion more. >.<

This time we fully embraced the idea of using an MCM for our gaming console. An MCM is where the aforementioned Multi-core CPU chip and the GPU chip10 are built into a single component. The GPU itself also contains quite a large on-chip memory. Due to this MCM, the package costs less and we could speed up data exchange among two LSIs while lowering power consumption. And also the international division of labor in general, would be cost-effective.

Iwata asks? Iwata should be answering! Way to troll the fans ONCE AGAIN Nintendo. How about some info on the online? Nope?

It's not about the size, it's about how you use it. :3
