Not so long ago...in two countries not so far away...
In the 80s, two companies battled and battled releasing console after console. The two companies were SEGA and Nintendo. SEGA eventually released the Saturn, which left Nintendo the champ. However, in the mid 90s, Sony came up with the PlayStation console and SEGA fell to the power of the two companies. And in 2001, Microsoft released the XBox, Nintendo released the GameCube, and Sony the PlayStation 2. These three consoles are currently fighting with many advantages. Nintendo with its neverending series like Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Pokemon, and Kirby. Microsoft with its World domination, violence, and graphics. And Sony with amazing RPGs like Final Fantasty.
Microsoft has just released the XBox 360, Sony will soon release the PlayStation 3, and Nintendo will come in last place with the Wii. The Console Wars rage on!!!
Who will win the Console Wars? I sure hope Nintendo doesn't fail...
An epic battle, equivalent to a dick measuring, or pissing contest. It pits the next-gen consoles against eachother - in this case, the Wii, X360, and Playstation 3 - in a battle... TO THE DEATH! Fanboys on all sides shall be hurling shit at eachother, while those of us who remain in the center shall laugh. Hillarity will ensue every battle, and the casualties will mount. Pick a side, or lackthereof, but be warned: choose the ultimate loser (all sides, except the center/neutral position), and you are to be fucked with for the ages.
In the future, more "wars" of the like will surely follow.
Fanboys across the globe are creaming their pants, in anticipation of the grand Console War, of the second generation.
The word 'console war' came about when a little competition broke into a petty argument caused by Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft fanboy
s all hurling insults at each others' consoles. The console war has caused a lot of people to fall out.
s treat the console war as if it's a real war.
An argument between three types of fanboy:
"Nintendo is for kids!"
"Yeah, well Sony copied Nintendo's Gameboy with it's PSP!"
"Yeah! Well Microsoft are the richest company ever!"
A pointless argument between fans of certain game consoles. Currently the battle between the XBOX 360, the Wii, and the PS3. The PSP and DS are also contenders in the console wars. This will never be resolved until Microsoft, Nintendo, Sony (and maybe Sega) all join together and make a console. But that console would probably suck.
PS3 fanboy: What's that ya' playin'?
360 fanboy: 360. Wanna play?
PS3 fanboy: Psh, no.
360 fanboy: Jeez, at least I didn't sell my house to buy the console.
Wii: Oh my god, you're both gay.We all know that the wii is the best console.
PS3 fanboy: -Toilet joke-
360 fanboy: Yeah, we all know that the graphics have to SUCK for the game to be good.
Wii fanboy: Yeah, well the 360 has nothing special about it, and the PS3's really expensive.
Neutral-Gamer: This again?
-Passes them rival consoles and baseball bats-
-Fanboys beat respective consoles with the bats, but stop arguing-
Neutral-Gamer: Can I get some sleep now?... Lousy Console War.
The seemingly neverending battle over which gaming console is supreme among all the others.
In the past, the console wars were between Nintendo and Sega, but nowadays, the three main competitors are Sony with the Playstation 2, Nintendo with the Gamecube, and Microsoft with the XBox.
It's really not that big an issue, but since some people love to argue over inane topics, the console wars rage on.
"Man, did you hear? Sony's releasing the PS3!"
"Just another contender in the console wars.
The stupidiest war that has ever been fought... Ever. It's usually filled with stupid graphic whoring fanboys and nerds who always have to point out every detail of a console thinking that the more power it has the better it is. (Newsflash: Just cause it has more power doesn't mean it's instantly better. For example the SNES didn't need fancy graphics just to create awesome games.).
With the release of the Nintendo DS and PSP the stupidity has taken to a next level, man I should write an article called "Nintendo geeks versus Sony freaks"
(Oh yeah and freak is used as an insult, I can't believe people title themselves as 'freaks', I'll just point and laugh at them.)
The orginial console war between Nintendo's SuperNES (Super Famicom) and Sega's Genesis (MegaDrive), circa the early '90s. Most likely what old school gamers think of when the term "console war" is thrown about.
Can also be used in reference to any competitive gaming systems. (Gameboy vs. GameGear; Playstation vs. Saturn vs. N64; Dreamcast vs. PS2 vs. Xbox vs. Gamecube; PS3 vs. X-Box 360 vs. Wii)
The console war ended with neither side victorious.
Gamer 1: I think the Genesis is better since it has the original Phantasy Star series, whereas the SuperNES had the Final Fantasy series
Gamer 2: I think the exact opposite!
Gamer 1: The SuperNES is best because it's GRAY!
Gamer 2: No way, the Genesis is better because it's BLACK!
the most pointless topic to talk about to another gamer. most of it consists of Nintendo fanboys vs. Sony fanboys arguing over whether the PSP
or the DS
are better, or any console for that matter.
Nintendo Fanboy: DS = teh roxx
Sony Fanboy: PSP > DS
Nintendo Fanboy: THE HELL U SAY BITCH!!?
Me: u guys fail. console wars suck
