What part of that PC plays Nintendo games and has a tablet controller?


Yeah, it's pretty stupid how he skips out on the tablet controller being included in the cost and how his PC has no method of control at all and is just a bunch of loose parts thrown together without a case.

Building a better machine =/= building the same machine.


Just build me a WiiU (excluding stuff like the free online services and aps) then we will talk.

And no, I will not take a pre-built touch screen or a pre-built anything, everything from the core, including the simplest and cheapest things, like casing and labeling.

I believe his main point was that people, specifically Nintendo fanboys kept overestimating the power of the WiiU, of course TC isn't excused either because at this time of age any PC parts you buy for building should be stronger than consoles anyway, so this topic is kind of moot.

You forgot some components. Nothing major, really, but I always include them in my computers:

-The case
-The cooling
-The keyboard (or other input device)
-The motherboard


I also fail to see the 1000W power supply.


You obviously don't know what you're doing if you think 1000W is necessary. I 100% guarantee you he could get 450W and comfortably have power left to spare.

well that is definitely some uneducated speculation about how much you would save buying them in bulk and other than that what is the point of this post?

You can do this for literally every console.

Lol TC so mad at Nintendo.


Exactly.

What is it that you're trying to prove here?

I'm actually very pleased if Nintendo turns a nice profit and is successul, because that means they can stay in business and spoil us with their first-party goodness and novel experiences. It wouldn't benefit anyone if it went out of business (except for companies involved in video games business-wise, which, I suppose, you're not a part of by any means, TC).

Of course, every console/game manufacturer could sell their stuff at a loss. Would you be content if they did so? You simply want to ridicule Nintendo for some reason. The problem is not with Nintendo at all, the problem is (in) you. Keep going.
