Wii Devkit Compared to the Dolphin (Gamecube) Devkit

Nintendo is revolutionizing the gaming industry with their upcoming Wii console in both its design and unique features. With Nintendo changing the way games are played, something they are not changing seems to be their development kits they are sending to developers (design-wise). I took the liberty to find a clearer picture of the Dolphin development kit as the one that many sites have linked to is of low quality. The Dolphin (Gamecube's codename) is pictured to the left (notice the Dolphin logo), while the Wii development kit is pictured on the right. These two devkits are very similar in their box design - almost as if they reused the Dolphin's devkit. This is an interesting look into the past, and a look into the gaming industry's future.
