"Wii Prototype" Goes Unsold On EBay

Posted by Sammy Barker

Well I thought this was funny. Really funny infact. You are welcome to disagree.

From eBay.co.uk

Many years ago in a deserted Japanese airfield there lived 10 Nintendo scientists. Their job? To create a fun, entertaining next generation console - they succeeded.

Unfortunetly for them they all had to be vapourised - this was so no other competitor could find out the secrets of the Wii™

The survivour as can be seen here is the prototype - several people have given their lives for this to available on eBay...

Anyway, to cut to the chase the prototype is a one of a kind Wii™ - just check out the specifications of this beast!

Unfortunetly I've not been able to get it to work, there seems to be some code which will be needed to unlock the console. The console also comes with a unique Aqua Cool water bottle cooler which sits on top of the console to keep it cool.

Without further a do onto the specifications;
