A new Console War is coming: lessons from a combat veteran

OXM's Edwin writes: "A funny thing happened at work yesterday: I killed a man. Well, an intern. He was saying something about onerous transcription duties, about how his writing skillz were "gathering dust", and I didn't hear what he said after that because I reached right down his throat, into his chest and tore his lungs out." (Microsoft, PS3, PS4, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

You'd have thought we'd have grown out of this sort of thing by now.

Incidentally, it is *astonishing* how many people in this thread are labouring under the impression that the article's meant to be taken seriously :)

War.. War never changes.

There will always be people who have an constant urge to justify their purchases and force their ideals upon others trough manipulation (recommendations, bashing, biased opinions, critic etc).

but lets face it, we all do it one way or another. Most of the time we don't even notice it.

Was this ridiculous article necessary? this only reminds the fanboys to refuel their nerd rage

I'd have thought the fact of it being ridiculous would be something of a deterrent.

Damn, this article has opened my eyes. I've not been a member of N4G all that long (about 6 months) so I've not been exposed to many console launches on here... After reading countless Wii U threads all I can think is by the end of the year the overwhelming number of posts on this site are going to be even more vapid and useless.

Can reading this stuff permanently lower my IQ or is it just temporary?

Ah yes, a new generation of keyboard warriors shall bring order to this age. Knowing that the safety of my gaming future is defended by console commandos and armchair analysts, makes me sleep better at night.

I don't think the article was meant to be taken seriously though.

We should stop ALL of this Fighting right NOW!

The other 2 consoles aren't even out yet-
If we put together a team we could take-out Sony's and Microsoft's Manufacturing centers giving them a major set back in the Next Console Wars !

Think of it all of us in Masks, standing in front of their Manufacturing Center's saying in unison,
"ITSA ME MARIO!"

Justjking

I am excited to see what Sony is going to show tomorrow. And E3- I will be glued ALL DAY everyday.
Good luck to all 3, I think the Industry needs all 3.
