A new image of a black Wii U console has appeared on the web. The photo comes from Twitter, where a member of the Frag Dolls — the girl gaming team — apparently received a debug unit. Or at least, managed to get her hands on one. Judging by the photo, it looks like the real thing, but this is the Internet, there’s always the possibility of faking and trolling. The photo was originally posted on Twitter, but has since been removed alongside the Tweet. If it’s the real thing, she’s obviously breaking an NDA and will get into serious trouble for posting the image. Which is probably why the tweet and photo have been removed. Of course, once you post something on the Internet, it’ll always be there. Check out the photo and the deleted Tweet below: local_offer black wii u Nintendo wii u stars Further Reading Nintendo doesn't need 3rd parties, says Stardock CEO Earthlock backers will get Switch version if it ever happens Zelda: Breath of the Wild Deluxe guide for $48 on Amazon Nintendo shares up 20% since Switch launch What's your dumbest death in Breath of the Wild? Mario Kart 8 Switch vs Wii U comparison liberalagenda FAKES!!! jk. 😀 nintendofreak sucker i hope u learned u lesson u dont go breaking a NDA u should read d tiny letters but well d name says it all non disclosure agreement theorangefish Didn’t the “NDAs” expire after e3? TheUNation Nope… the NDA expires on September 13 (I assume) in North America/earlier date in Japan. theaquacharger More then likely their expires at console launch since they recieved it early and are not developers but just gamers. theaquacharger also more then likely not a debug unit but an early consumer units. Those should be going out about now-ish to test to make sure they’re not overheating or other issues. Nintendofreak Well doesnt really makes a difference she doesnt have a wiiu game…….but still i wonder if she is pretty ill sacrifice myself for d wiiu AKA-Link77 Wat i wanna know is wat the hell “ZOMG” means! 0_e theaquacharger http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=zomg khole Zombies oh my god haha SteampunkJedi Same here. TheRealChappy zeppelin of mighty gargantuanness Skozo Oh wow, if this was real I would be shitting myself. Lugo Fail. She just messed with the big N, I hope her body is ready. Johny MOST epic comment i’ve seen in a LONG time… you sire have won the internet Spike…the dog from Rugrats Are you going to rape her? Macarony64 I think it was not debugg unit but a real console which means that the console is near his release ,or that she just was there the day that the e3 or gamescom boths were made and she was trolling about it Kibs So jealous right now :/ nintedward thats what me unboxing my black wiiu is going to look like. theorangefish This doesn’t look like a fake one. Swic11 Looks real to me, either way I am jealous, I wouldn’t mind having a fake model of one, that way I can get used to seeing it on my entertainment center PridgMSS SWAG ruined it for me. Mida You got that right Ash That’s the correct way to use that word though. Before all this style=swag crap it meant free things that everybody got at places like conventions and premieres. Like at a skateboarding demo where they would throw stickers and decks into the crowd, what they threw were called swag. My guess is that these girls were at some meeting of some sort and they all left with a free wii u instead of the usual swag, such as a t-shirt or wristband. Lucky lol Adam Fox SWAG has always ruined it for me, unless i’m quoting someone or making fun of someone, i never use that word…..even though I laugh at the “Geek Swag” stuff they have on the market, I wouldn’t ever get anything with the word “Swag” on it….. Nintendude Looks pretty real. However I could be wrong. Who knows, maybe she did get one, or she faked it. Nintendude I just remembered seeing a program in one of VSauce’s DONG videos where you could tell if photos were Photoshoped or not. I saved the image above then went to the link only to find out the program was closed and you could not use it anymore. Anybody know program to do so? Mida “ZOMG”…. let’s be serious… Who even says that anymore? TheBoldman67 Every teen-age girl on the internet. Grodus What he said. theorangefish guy guys oh my god guys guys guys guys …..okay okay okay oaky ….. look at the picture ther are tons of those wii u boxes Kamon :O ZOMG!!!! Grodus Omg omg guys guys hes right guys guys ZOMG!!!!! Kamon Lol’ed so hard at “ZOMG!!” Come on… D2K While is certainly is not impossible to fake things like this with powerful programs like Photoshop and 3DS Max, that looks like a real system. I don’t think it’s a big deal at this point for someone to have a debut unit. The system will on shelves in two months and Nintendo is finally about to take the wrappers off the candy on September 13th. I vote real. Yamiryuu Zero Always remember kids: when posting on internet something you shouldn’t, always hide your identity and make sure nothing in the picture or on your words make it possible to recognize you. She may even lose her job because of that… retlaw Looks like those boxes are wii u??! You guys see that? Herox95 I wished I had a Wii U… dammnit! CubeClubKiddy everyone AND their brothers should be interested in this! this makes the next two months more news-worthy than the rest we’ve been through already! think about how many times you read about “Wii U Specs” in the past year or so. i have never paid more attention to any game company as much as i have with nintendo… Jc Excuse my stupidity but what’s an NDA? theaquacharger Non-Disclosure Agreement. If you’re in a beta, or get a product early, usually you sign an NDA which means you’re not allowed to talk about or share said product. Dorfdad LOL she was trolling it’s their Wii-U’s for the Setup at PAX! Ubisoft is showcasing some stuff and the FRAG girls will be on hand… She probably removed the tweat because these articles are saying SWAG like shes teasing she got one free, which they dont at least not yet… NavyBlueYoshi She said swag… It’s fake. But in all seriousness its fake, the front appears to be flat and the wii u does not have a rim that sticks out like that. brawl can some1 please explain y this person might b in trouble 4 posting this pic? Its not like we havent seen the black Wii U b4. Claudinou It’s a contract of non divulgation, people who sig,ed this c’an’t say szay anything about the wii U feautures or specs or anything that Nintendo hasn’t revealed yet P.S: You’re not stupid 🙂 Tovoklore I am not entirely convinced it is real. There are two very subtle differences between the model in this pic and the models shown in every other official pic I’ve seen. The eject button appears circular rather than oblong (hard to tell because it is conveniently black) and the text above and below the eject symbol seems slightly off center to the symbol. The unit doesn’t have that little projection sticking out the right side either. Of course, the model may have changed so I can’t be positive it is fake either. @Jc: NDA stands for Non-Disclosure Act. Tovoklore *Non-Disclosure Agreement. Sorry no edit button. John Am I the only one that noticed that there are identical boxes in possession by the people in the back? 🙂 SteampunkJedi They aren’t open, so I’m not sure the content is identical. SH*TBLOCK Yup saw that too, I think it is the real thing not sure what or why they have them but I am getting happy to have mine soon as well… SteampunkJedi I honestly can’t tell if it’s real. I don’t know the capabilities of photoshop, but this looks quite realistic to me. Not that it would matter too much, unless that person violated something and lost her job. tronic307 Stupid! Those Wii U’s will likely all have to go back now. rafael It looks fake to me because it shines in a irregular way :/ SteampunkJedi I think there might be some clear plastic wrapping on it, but I’m not so sure about that. rafael Not sure, the only plastic it seems to have is the one with the bubles… My black wii doesnt shine like that…anyway, it could be. Wii U Gamer#19 It’s real cuz i’ve seen pics in vids on youtube of the black Wii U” and the way she’s holding it, i’ve seen other people hold the White Wii U’ which im getting cuz i don’t wanna have to deal with dust & finger prints & i’ve had my White Wii since 2006 and still looks new 🙂 so anyways this black Wii U is real. Often when people make fake photos, they’re usually not holding wat they faked just like u don’t see any pics on google of any people or some dude holding a fake Xbox 720 or Fake PS4 it’s just sitting there in a black backround, so anyways can’t wait to get my hands on the Wii U. Wii U Gamer#19 sorry not black backround plain backround. 345weas that is so fake. poor editing who made that Nintenerd They look real enough to me. Maybe an updated model just like they did with the Gamepad when they changed the layout for the better. Looks like everyone in the back picture got one too. I will be scouring eBay for someone selling one of them lol Michael The picture does not say much; in fact nothing at all. Never mind if the console is fake; if it was truly the best “swag” (really?) it would also be monitored as to who got it and why. Nintendo don’t just hand this stuff out without a reason. Most likely a picture from a friend to a friend kind of scenario; and the person who leaked this just wanted to pretend and show off like a moron. theaquacharger No Frag Girls would get some since they’re sponsored by Ubisoft and are supposed to show off a lot of Ubisoft’s Wii U games are PAX. Captain Potato What am I supposed to do with that rope that comes in the box with my Wii U? Is that a jump-rope for Wii U Fit? 😉 DerikGotro64 Can someone tell me what the hell does the “Z” in “Zomg!!!” mean? maxlazy10 Don’t know if it was fake or not, but I wish Nintendo would mail me a free Wii U! Shecky Played Batman Arkam City on a Black WIIU at Fan Expo in Toronto, ON last week. Paul fake or not they arent going to make these girl gamers a better clan lol its like activision giving there sponsored team clan a limited edition ps3 or xbox 360 not going to happen but if true then ubisoft will be in trouble with nintendo tj leeland I know for a fact that it’s real. I can’t say who told me, but the girl. Is an IMF agent, and this was the device she got her mission from. It self destructed five seconds after she took the picture. The other boxes have PC motherboards in tbem – as was supposed to be the case with this one, but you know how IMF is. She was killed during the mission TIMMY! HA! Mission Impossible! Big N Is this the one from the previous article here: http://wiiudaily.com/2012/08/fake-wii-u-gamepad-copycat/ Garzard They’re sponsored by Ubisoft. Guess who’s gonna wreck their shit. Johnny That console has no swag. That console has class. Elite All she will have to do is send in a nude pic showing that her body is ready. Elite If that is in fact the case i wonder if those other box in the picture contain Wii u.
