Nintendo Has Most Certainly Won The Next Generation

Nintendo, the creators of the game industry have already won this new generation with the Wii U. With its clearly vast library of games and incredible exclusives like Halo 5, Final Fantasy XVII, Uncharted 7 and Call of Duty Modern Warfare 8, it has already bested the test of time and has shown us what a next gen system is truly capable of, rendering the upcoming Nextbox and PS4 obsolete and dead on arrival.

This undeniable fact has been proven by Nintendo even before its release at E3 2012, where Nintendo Land showed the Wii U's true potential with next generation 4D graphics and absolutely perfect gameplay. The online features shown in this game spurred true innovation, systematically and dramatically increasing the hype for this brilliant machine. Upon its release the Wii u featured a full library of games and exclusives that outmatch the PS3 and 360 combined, all with next generation graphics that would make PC gamers cry.

With a full backing of 3rd party support and twelve AAA releases slated for this year alone, the future for the Wii U is most certainly bright, leaving the PS4 and Nextbox in the shadows.

...satire over.

Okay, seriously guys, why do we even approve articles with these headlines? Honestly, you KNOW it's a troll. So why approve it just to bash it? Wouldn't the simplest and best course of action to be to, you know, ignore it? It's dumb enough that you can hardly make a comparison about three consoles in that manner when considering two of them are not even out yet. Can we save the stupidity for the next Kotaku/Pachter article that gets uploaded? Thank you for your time.

The story is too old to be commented.

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.

PopRocks3591823d ago

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."

Dark5tar11823d ago

Idk why people approve of such flamebait articles on this site. They can't save the stupidity, it's infinite!

Donnieboi1823d ago

Wait a minute, is there a correlation between bubbles and article submissions?

Ducky1823d 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'.

majiebeast1823d ago (Edited 1823d ago )

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?

coolbeans1823d ago

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.

HammadTheBeast1822d ago

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


dendenmooshi1810d ago

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.

1) Can support itself.
2) Has games I like.

That is all.

360ICE1819d ago

No, it will be the one that has the games I like!

Godmars2901819d ago

And that is exactly what was said.

Valenka1822d ago

How can anyone possibly judge what console has won the next generation when the other contenders haven't dealt their cards yet? Completely illogical.

arbitor3651822d ago

pretty good satire. could have been a bit more subtle though

MelonSaurus1822d ago

And yeah I agree you could of led us on a little better. I realized it was satire after the first sentence.

PopRocks3591820d ago

Wasn't really even attempting subtlety. I feel the articles I was making fun of don't use any, so why should I?

360ICE1819d ago

Probably not, no. Subtle has been known to give... mixed results here.

MelonSaurus1822d 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.
