I remember the Nintendo fanboys making fun of the Vita sales in the Vita board.

lol wii u is flopping. nothing can save nintendo this time. they are back to the time ps1 and ps2 were dominating them so bad.


Just how bad is the situation for Nintendo? I heard the WiiU isn't selling well but is it really at the brink of destruction? Vita was like that but after the Japan price drop is doing well, not to mention Vita slim and Ps4 + Vita combination.


It's not really in bad shape at all, vita was in much worse shape, still is but it's definitely improving. It's slumped these two months, but nothing was released and historically this is pretty normal. The first year and sometimes the second of a console's life at typically fairly slow and then once the library has built up it sells better. For example the wiiU is ahead of the ps2's sales at this time in it's life and that is currently the best selling home console of all time.

I've made fun of a lot of consoles for a lot of things.

But its mostly been stuff like this:

But ESPECIALLY this:

I'd say its a far cry from the fanboys of today.
Mostly it used to just be PRETENDING to hate the other guy for the sake of a good joke.

That's something that all fanboys have in common, Chris. It isn't something exclusive to Nintendo's.

But seeing as how you're quite the hypocrite yourself (even indirectly admitting it on occasion), I should be taking your words with a grain of salt.

I don't think anyone has ever actually wanted to see a console fail. Not to the point that they get demolished so badly in sales, that one such console would have to make a clean break with history. Unless, you're like a stock-holder or business person in which case it would make some sense to want to see a competing console utterly fail.

...As a fan of either company, it doesn't make sense to want to see a different console fail. There's no logic in it, because good competition makes the companies try harder, which means higher quality products.

Nintendo fanboys are hypocrites, that's why. They think when they dislike Sony and MS, it is automatically justified. But when people dislike Nintendo for the same things, they are just "trolls".

The ones that are really "trolling" are the ones that think their negative opinions about something others like is factual right, while people's negative opinions about something they like is just unfounded bashing for no reason. Sad and pathetic fanboys are the real and worst trolls on any forum.


And he's the big hypocrite himself.


No. He's not, hes telling the truth about fanboys who are upset over a console. I mean its sad to see a console die and all. But to bash the console thinking the publisher will hear there plea for help and will fix the console.

Sony cares about their fans? When did this happen?


Uh, you can check all the specials/programs they have in PSN to begin with. Right now they are in their second wave handing 10 bucks to random people. All the games they have, their quality AAA titles. Need I go on? It's not an opinion, by the way.

Some people are stupid enough to want that very thing to happen.

No I disagree, lot of people want certain console makers to fail. You don't need to look very hard in the gaming press to find lots of people hoping and wishing for nintendo's consoles to fail, and I'm sure there's those out there that want the same for microsoft and sony. I even think a good number of the trolls here want to see the wiiU fail.

Don't be surprised to see the same miserable hate-mongers who troll the Vita under the guise of Nintendo fanboys trolling the Wii U posing as Sony fanboys.

Does that actually happen?

I know this board is home to some "Super Fanboys". You know, the kind that come on here and spend all day defending nintendo, while simultaneously going to the Vita board and spending all day bashing Sony. Those are the most dedicated fanboys.

He's a hypocrite because he is constantly whining about fanboys insulting others while he insults others himself.
