Project Café video fake, E3 invitation confirms ´Stream´?

A video clip allegedly showing a presentation of Nintendo's next home console has surfaced. A number of regular commentators here have argued about whether the clip should even be discussed. I am certain that it is fake, but believe that it is worth pointing out why. Here is the clip.


This clip was uploaded by YouTube user privateconnex and is entitled ´Nintendo Project Cafe leak "private developer conference"´. The clip itself, however, starts with a slate reading "Private Presentation of 'Project Cafe' by a Video Games Editor". Now, this is the most compelling reason to believe this is a complete fabrication: no videogames editor in the world would be giving a presentation of gaming hardware that is yet to be made public. I even believe that no videogames editor in the world has even seen the console. But even if so, it is hard to believe that Nintendo would trust media outside of Japan. The young woman seen in the clip is clearly not Japanese.

Another aspect is the location. The clip appears to be filmed inside a lecture theatre, commonly found in universities. These are practical, but no-frills places for any presentation. A company like Nintendo would on no account book a venue like this. Next up, the slides are reminiscent of previous fakes. I wrote about those images: "Any kind of presentation would use renders rather than simple outlines. Such basic images are only ever used in patent documents. This is surely a fake." If used in any kind of presentation to the outside world, it is even more important to keep up appearances.

Lastly, the person following the presentation appears to resemble Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime. This might, at the surface, appear to validate the video as real. On second thought, it does the very opposite, though. If this presentation really did take place and someone in the audience would want to break the NDA they undoubtedly had to sign prior to entering and hence risk their job, how much more foolhardy would it be to film the event sitting right behind Reggie? This is just plain stupid.

Various points I made earlier with regard to the hardware are also applicable here. It might strike us as odd that previous fakes have all shown the same hardware design, both console and controller. But either they originate from the same person or subsequent fakers realised that their work would become more credible if they picked up on it. You can rest assured that all images and videos purporting to show the Wii successor so far are fake.

What we can do, legitimately, is speculate on the basis of facts. There is very little, but here is a little more. This is an invitation by Nintendo of Europe for a media reception at E3. Notice the design.

Note that the imagery used is a combination of the squares with beveled edges we know from the DS family with the blue circles that have appeared in connection with the Wii. Combining them is what appears to be a stream or a wave. This may suggest that the next console will bring home consoles and portables closer together. It also may corroborate that the console will be called Stream, as previous rumours suggested.

I think you hit all the right points with calling this vid fake but i can help but remember when and image of the Wii-mote was leaked and many of us commenter myself included called it fake. :)

Hi Andrew.

That story is untrue. The Wii remote was never leaked. Some poster on NeoGAF later replaced an image he had posted before the reveal. That was all. You must have confused things.

RGB said...

You took the time to write that. If that other guy from the other blog posted something like what you wrote I would of had no issue with him at all.

Interesting about the invite but I think you are reading too much into it IMO. But at least its something LEGITIMATE worth speculating over unlike the other guy and his blog posting stupid fake videos.

Anonymous said...

The video has already been confirmed as fake, for like a few days now, at least.

RGB said...

@ above

I sincerely hope you didnt need confirmation that it was fake. ROFL. I think you missed the point entirely by Fal's post.

falafed this was confirmed fake like a week ago wen it hit WIIBO101 SAID ITS TWO STUDENTS IN A CLASS ROOM

wiboy101 on the da this leaked said the following

two stdents in a classroom with a mobile phone camera a wii 2 it does not make

a week later its confirmed a school project to get 5000 hits on youtube off course the fake wii 2 video won with over half a million hits...

its funny again wiiboy101 was the only guy who called it

wen two students mess around in front of a phone camera thats exactly what you see

andrew continues to smoke crack the wii remote was never leaked !!!!


and again wiiboy101 guessed the wii controls 90% perfectly before everyone else

the only thing he got wrong was wii remote shape and no rumble in nunchuck

he even predicted the speaker BECOSE HE THINKS LIKE A GAMER NOT A HARDLYCORE

im guessing andrew has never thoght of this stuff et is a self proclaimed core gamer

yeah right

RGB said...

You are a tool and so is wiiboy if not the same.

Anyone with half a brain knew upon watching the video that it was fake so dont think yourself all high and mighty mate.

had fun last night a new friend was around for some beers and weed and we soon started playing wii he was a x360 fan / owner

he went into INSANE MODE calling his cod x360 core and all the usual guff so i cracked open wii black ops

wen he seen me aiming perfectly from a comfortable seated position in a relaxed manner hands on my lap aiming from the wrist he said i didn't realize wii fps was played like that I THOUGHT I HAD TO POINT MY ARM OUT AT THE SCREEN

i said you let the idiots online brain wash you do u hold out your arm wen using a pc mouse he said no i see your point

i then further educated him !!!

i said whats in the middle of my cross hair he said a yellow dot ....i said thats my courser just like a mouse thats my near 1mm precision aim point the cross hair is bullet spray radius

ok he said then i went into classic pad mode and pointed out how horrid the camera now moves in that mode and how the cross hair had no center dot

he soon realized my point the CLASSIC PAD mode of wii black ops was HEAVILY SOFTWARE GIMPED WITH AUTO AIM AND AIM ASSISTED just like his x360 and the game was like doing 30% plus of the aiming for him and his gun sight was a cheat as all he had to do was get a HUGE cross hair inline with a player and shoot NO SKILL NO PRECISION INVOLVED AT ALL

he now ses the light twin sticks is OBSOLETE CRAP AND HAS NO PLACE IN A FPS GAME

Playing games puts you into a fantasy world. If I want to shoot with precision, i'll go to the shooting range. Only a dumbass would play COD on the wii and say, "OH Yeah! this is so precise, it's just like shooting a real gun..."

I play games on easy and if there's aim assist, i turn it on. I work 40+ hours a week and I travel alot, i don't have time to be dicking the dog and trying to re-do levels over and over. I play games mostly for the story. When I get back from work, i'm tired, if i play games i want to sit there on a couch and use a dual analog. Moving my wrist around and waggling a wiimote is not my idea of relaxing.

I can't wait to see what nintendo's new controller will be, i'm gonna laugh my ass off if it isn't motion centric.

"In advance of Nintendo's E3 press conference next week, Nikkei has leaked out details on the Wii successor. The report (registration required) mirrors much of what has surfaced over the past few weeks.

Wii 2 will feature a new type of controller that includes a touch screen. The controller will give tablet-like controls to games, tapping the touch panel to control the characters on your television, for instance. The controller can also be used as a portable game machine.

The touch panel on the controller is six inches. The controller itself has a built in rechargeable battery and includes a camera. The camera can be used for a variety of play opportunities -- for instance, a player making an avatar of himself for use in a game.

Nikkei says that Wii 2 could be released as early as mid 2012. The site lists the system as `Wii successor console´."
