Since it will be only released in 2012 my guess is that is a developer unit / SKU. Remember the white Kinect?

Also, Nintendo is pretty good to hide their "secrets"

I haven't been following this too closely, but I think they are "rumored" pics of the (alleged) Project Cafe dev device versus a retail unit... if anyone can clarify I will +Rep ya!

I am personally not a fan of the Wii, I have been adversely against the whole concept since it released. Probably not even going to give the new one a second thought.
