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!
Next Round (Sony PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Revolution)
In the future, more "wars" of the like will surely follow.
Fanboys treat the console war as if it's a real war.
"Nintendo is for kids!"
"Yeah, well Sony copied Nintendo's Gameboy with it's PSP!"
"Yeah! Well Microsoft are the richest company ever!"
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.
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.
"Just another contender in the console wars.
(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.)
Sony Fanboy: PSP > DS
Nintendo Fanboy: THE HELL U SAY BITCH!!?
