Wii U is blatantly better than PS3 and Xbox 360 COMBINED

The Wii U has had a chance to settle in North America, and just recently hit shelves in Europe. The question on everybody's lips is, of course -- is the Wii U the best home console in the world, and should I throw away every other expensive electronic device in my house out of pure spite?

The answer to both those questions is, of course, yes. Smash it all. Including your television. You won't need that anymore, because the GamePad basically is one. (PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Hilarious, as per usual.

This was Childish, not Hilarious.

I understand that this is a spoof/sarcastic article, but they stopped being funny a long time ago.

Jim Sterling hasn't learned how to grow out of this type of 'humour' it seems.

Satire isn't always supposed to be funny. He had a point, and he made it.

I thought it was Hilarious and childish, but mostly hilarious. Its almost like stan marsh and sarcastiball from southpark.

A so called next gen hardware that has a slowrer GPU as the ps360 is supposed to be better? This is just a troll article looking for hits, i could not help but feed the troll writer of this article by posting a comment. :/

I know you didnt read or watch because you didn't want to support it but I will clear this article up for you. Anything that says "Blatantly" and is from Destructoid is a parody/satire regarding the ridiculousness of comparing such things. I agree this one wasn't very funny but it wasn't a troll post looking for hits at all.

Gonna go straight to the point. Comments on this article will not be as funny as they are on DT.

I understand he's being completely sarcastic here, but having motion tracker in Aliens: Colonial Marines is actually pretty cool. Sorry that Jim Sterling thinks I'm lame for liking that..

Let's make fun of a console right out the gate shall we.

Lets base the system on it's first launched games and ports from other systems because we all know that these games will define what the console can truly do and what is has in store for the future.

Yaaaawn, nothing to see here.

For someone who is not used to speak in the english language ( Or write). I did not understand the whole joke? Is it some troll article?

Are people gonna' get tired of hating on the Wii U?
It's like "gamers" and the press are trying to sink Nintendo out of some strange bandwagon attitude so that no one plays a Nintendo console ever again. It's really quite strange.
kupomogli  +   1090d ago
That's the idea.

Aww shiet! This convinced me to buy a Wii U now! PS360, eat you heart out! /s
deafdani  +   1091d ago

Yeah, I love Nintendo, but I thought this article was pretty funny. His sarcasm is overwhelming. This article should be something everyone should enjoy. He pretty much stuck the knife in, turned it, pulled it out, stabbed a few more times, smashed Wii U's head in to the wall after he slit it's throat. Hilarious overkill.

I knew this watching a youtube video by usa tech guy called rich 2days ago, i like my wii u it`s amazing, must have.
neogeo  +   1090d ago
If WiiU had only 1 game and it was Metroid and every other game was canceled and NIN went out of biz the next day, I would still buy it.

That is what all the hater fanboys will never understand.
No matter the ports, no matter the cpu speed.

1. Metroid
2. Metroid
3. Metroid

any questions?

I love the over the top rediculousness of this article. If you dont think its funny than you just dont have the same sense of humor this guy does.

Thanks tho, I laughed a lot.

There is no way in hell Wii u is better than ps3 or xbox. This guy who wrote this article is smokin something fierce. That Wii U controller is a giant brick of a thing. I think its ridiculous and would never ever play with a controller like that, its way to bulky and clumsy to use. I would much rather buy a vita and use that as a controller for ps3/ ps4. I heard xbox controller will be a touchscreen interface anything is better than that thing Wii U calls a controller lol.
