Accusations are flying and pictures are surfacing of behind-the-scenes fakery going on at Nintendo's demonstration of its Wii console at E3 a couple of weeks ago. Take a look at all these wires behind the Wii, which are said to be leading over to a GameCube where there was allegedly a Wii software development kit installed.

The Nintendo Insider Forums are where this thread got started, but we agree with our brothers at Kotaku that the excitement about all this is a bit overheated. Since when did we expect trade show demos to be 100% honest and accurate, anyway?
