Was I the only one that called power consumption into the equation? I figured that'd be a pretty simple way of seeing whether it's true or not.


Hey, I was the one who said that it was breaking trade law to increase power consumption on electronics in the EU without official notification. Thus debunking the entire rumour.


I still want to know what the manual says. If it says 75w then it does nothing to debunk the rumor as that is what the PSU is rated for at peak draw. The actual system draws between 28w & 33w depending on what it does.


Let's see. *pulls out manual*

Oh here it on on page 6:
Wii U Operations Manual
See the bottom of the AC adapter for additional information.


Well, that was enlightening...
