This is crazy if true. Anyone have any insight?

There's already a thread about this.

Damn, I'd been holding out on buying a washing machine hoping to just get the Wii U when it comes out.

@AlexanderSheen: Are you saying that the 360 and PS3 are washing machines? Wow, I haven't ever used that feature.

This is getting ridiculous.

@freewilly5: That's exactly what I'm saying.

Are you saying you wash alot of pee pants in the laundry?  In which case I guess I'll call it the Semen U.

I follow a washing machine and a smoke detector on twitter. I can't picture myself following a Wii-U.

I don't know how you spell the expression, so I just went with what it sounded like =X Or the... pee part anywhoo. Because the U was intentio-oh whatever. Failed joke failed.

I don't know, did it?  I'm sorry, you shouldn't feel bad.  I'm pretty sure I fully understood what you were trying to say.  I'm also pretty sure I derailed it on purpose, because it was a funny tie-in to washing mast- oh...  failed derailed joke failed.

Well the motor in a Wii U only has to be powerful enough to spin a little disc, whereas a washing machine has to rotate a huge-ass drum full of wet clothing, so there may be some truth in that statement.

BTW. Apparently the PS4 is going to be so powerful that they're going to be classed as sentient beings with their own embassy.

It's sadly true. My uncle works for Nintendo.

My washing machine wasn't able to run the games with high resolution textures, so I had to get the expansion pack. It's running them now, but I hear the disc drive add on is gonna have CD quality sound so, I dunno. Might need to get that too.

I heard the Wii U is weaker than the Atari 2600

Seaman on Wii U? Sold! I'll just have to keep my existing washing machine plugged in for when I need the extra power.

@James_Giant_Peach: Aren't you the guy that hates the community and the staff? Why are you here actively making threads? I don't dislike you or think you shouldn't be here, but I am genuinely curious.

There is already a thread discussing this rumor. Also with such topics please avoid system wars-esque arguments as such flame wars are strictly prohibited on Giant Bomb.
