I'm usually not a fan of these "Iwata asks" articles because of their shoddy Japanese-to-English translation, but this one is pretty cool because it talks about the engineering that went into designing the Wii U. Pretty great stuff, hard to believe it's been 6 years sine the Wii.
It always amazes me how quickly hardware and software evolves. It's amazing to think that less than 30 years ago the Famicom was released in Japan. Now we're about to see the launch of the WiiU. Computers and technology is moving so quickly that's it's getting rather difficult to keep up.
I have to agree with you that the translations were not so great though. I wish I was able to understand more of their engineering crap though.
