New consoles are so awesome, that exploited labor is needed to make them

For all the moral superiority that console fanboys claim to have about PC gaming, at least my PC isn't made on the backs of exploited labor.

So much for console fanboys thinking they are better than their PC gamer counterparts. This is kind of up there with Apple fanboys thinking their computer are better, but they are also built from the same exploited labor.

IT students, they might as well get used to being exploited.

At least they are not on call and forced to work overtime with no additional pay like IT people are.

Are you really that naive?

Let's see, no one forced me to build my gaming PC because I picked out my parts and put them together. You have students here, on the other hand, who are being forced to make PS4s.

Who do you think built your motherboard? Your video card? Magical fairies?

It was slave labor from China.

What does it matter if the parts were picked by you when those parts themselves were created in areas that are just as likely to have horrible working conditions?

Electronics 'sweat' shops are the norm these days and the only reason its not as big of a deal is because its not happening in our backyard.

And who created/assembled the components of your PC?

Why would we assume that when there are so many error ID:10T cases all about? Nothing in your post screamed sarcasm.
