I see what you just did there. Nice Blog. And this goes for all sensationally-titled articles of all systems. It's really just a grab for hits. I don't know who should be more ashamed, the authors, the guy who posts the article(s) on n4g, or us--the fools clicking it.

Pertaining specifically to the hottest article of this variety right now in the Wii U section, one of the highest bubbled commenters was apparently one of the people who approved the article. It seemed to me like a classic instance of "hook, line and sinker."

Idk why people approve of such flamebait articles on this site. They can't save the stupidity, it's infinite!
Donnieboi  +   1022d ago
Wait a minute, is there a correlation between bubbles and article submissions?
Ducky  +   1022d ago
It's an easy way of getting bubbles.

Find a flamebait headline, and approve it while also making a comment on how stupid the article is.
Once it hits the front page, you'll be rolling in 'well saids'.

I approved it because it wasnt against the rules it was a opinion piece, i do the same for other news,articles. I might not have agreed with the delusions the author was writing down but it wasnt against the rules so why shouldnt i approve it?

To be fair, that poster wasn't the first to approve it nor the person who submitted the flamebait-ish article. It can't really be helped if a poster gets lucky at being first to comment on those sorts of articles. It would be fairer to question what constitutes a 'Well Said' to the majority on here, rather than the one making a scathing, possibly true point.

The irony of you posting this article with that headline is absurd.

Just wondering. Was the last paragraph added after it was accepted?

@your 2nd comment

I'm not sure I follow. Each contributor gets the same limit of articles he/she can submit within a certain timeframe. Bubbles pertain solely to how many comments you can make in a certain article/blog/review.

The system which wins will be the one which:
1) Can support itself.
2) Has games I like.

That is all.

No, it will be the one that has the games I like!
Godmars290  +   1019d ago
And that is exactly what was said.

How can anyone possibly judge what console has won the next generation when the other contenders haven't dealt their cards yet? Completely illogical.
arbitor365  +   1022d ago
pretty good satire. could have been a bit more subtle though
MelonSaurus  +   1021d ago
And yeah I agree you could of led us on a little better. I realized it was satire after the first sentence.
PopRocks359  +   1020d ago
Wasn't really even attempting subtlety. I feel the articles I was making fun of don't use any, so why should I?
dendenmooshi  +   1009d ago
So meta
360ICE  +   1019d ago
Probably not, no. Subtle has been known to give... mixed results here.
MelonSaurus  +   1021d ago
Thank you for exposing the stupidity of some of the articles that have been floating around as of late. It's so annoying seeing them over and over again.

You know the hilarious part? The only ones calling the WiiU a winner of anything are the sad, delusional Nintendo fans. Even Devs are calling the WiiU what it actually is: A mid-gen machine that's on track for disaster.

Out of every company out there only one is in real trouble, that being Nintendo. If Microsoft fails at gaming, they can fall back on other endeavors to stay afloat. While Sony is having problems with their other divisions like TVs, their gaming division is profitable. Nintendo has nothing to fall on.

If that's not enough both Sony and Microsoft are securing both first and third party support while Nintendo can't even seem to get out their first party titles, let alone get more third party developers on board the WiiU. Both Sony and Microsoft are also already on top of their respective online services, again, something Nintendo isn't.

If that's not enough again the tablet controller for the WiiU is a resource eater since it doesn't have built in processors or components, meaning the base system also has to run the controller with its already low resources compared to what is actually coming in Next Gen systems. This isn't true for either Microsoft or Sony since their components, IE Move, Vita, and Kinect, are all powered by themselves, dropping the toll they'll take on those Next Gen systems.

To add to this further Sony is already showing off the games they'll have for the PS4 at launch or shortly after. While Microsoft is being hush hush here, Nintendo is already falling behind the pack with its limited number of titles and discrepancies with the amount of content they're getting compared to even current gen consoles.

Bottom line: Nintendo can't even really compete with current gen consoles. No chance they're competing with actual next gen systems.

nintendo has enough money in the bank to fail until the year 2050..

sony on the other hand wont have nothing to fallback on because like you said sony is losing money all around... selling system at a loss which aren't even selling all that good..(vita)

while wii u isnt selling its profitable after a nintendo game is sold.. giving the fact that nsmbu sold 2/3 the amount of wiiu sold i say they profited enough not to worry
