Following the New York Toy Fair prototype in its black shell, the next prototype pictures featured a clear Jaguar shell, but those hoping to see the inner workings would be disappointed.
With all of the questions being asked and all of the controversy about what hardware was inside the console, it was hoped that at least some details would become available.

Despite these efforts, some determined people did figure out what was actually inside. Sadly for Mike, it was proven to be yet another fake prototype.
