But then how do I play Zelda?


This. No oncare understands that Nintendo will always sell well because they have the best IPs. This is why I will always buy, and rightfully so, Nintendo's new consoles.

90%of gamers don't give a crap about specs, they give a crap about Mario and Pokemon.


I agree, like it was always stated every gen battle Nintendo doesn't care about graphics. Nintendo is fine and always has been. If you don't like the system then just don't buy it or if you did buy it then sell it.

This is also a huge reason why Nintendo introduced their system first is because they will create revenue right off the bad with Pokemon, Mario, Zelda and Smash bros being the huge sellers. Once 720 and ps4 come out nintendo will care less and start making another system before xbox and ps.

and that's good for the consumer? Spend $350 to turn around and buy another system for $350 that barely beats the Xbox/PS? LOL

TC as well as most people in this topic are completely clueless regarding what actually goes into production of a product (in this case game consoles).


So congratulations, you also stated the obvious that all consoles are extremely overpriced at launch as you can always build something better.

Take that Microsoft and Sony!

You sure showed them!

You cherry picked TC, like most children you had a narrow view and omitted everything that constitutes what these companies actually do and take as cost when making a product.

You, as well as the rest of the detritus on this board, are the pinnacle of human bias, bitterness and complete ignorance.

So, about the psu, case, motherboard. What are we talking about here? Are you saying the components you have listed are 400$? Or is it 400$ with the other stuff included? If so, then how much do the components without psu, case and mb cost? And are we talking about a decent psu? A decent mb? A decent case?

Also, I like how he's comparing the 350$ wii-u which is the same build as the 300$ wii-u. The difference is not in the machine itself, but the extra goodies you get. So, I challenge you to put together a 300$ gaming pc that includes a reliable psu and mobo as well as a case. It also has to include keyboard and mouse b/c, while people will probably have those laying around like you said, all gaming consoles don't just expect you to have one of their controllers laying around. So, 300$ for a gaming pc, plus a reliable psu and mobo plus a kb+m. Can you do it? Or are you just going to ***** and moan about irrelevant crap like 99% of these people here do while insulting me or others along the way?

ps: I have a gaming pc, a good gaming pc. I plan on getting a wii-u when money allows, not b/c I want OMFG GRAPHICS like the ps3/360 tards, but b/c I want gameplay and Nintendo IPs.
