eBay Germany promoting Wii U after Xbox One privacy concerns

ebay-germany

Just a few days after the reveal of the Xbox One, two major governments have already spoken out against the home console, citing privacy concerns for its citizens. Both Germany and Australia are condemning the console for what they believe is a breach of privacy. The above listing is taken from eBay Germany’s Facebook page, where it promotes the console as having the following benefits:

– no used games blocking
– no mandatory online
– no crap/bs

It’s interesting to note that not a single person outside of Microsoft has yet to play the console, but due to the unclear answers they’re giving consumers, most avid gamers who understand its current functions are not too happy with it. What do you think? Should these retailers be worried? Remember, eBay is typically a haven for used games.

            Nickelodeon fired the creator and gave his studio the boot. Seasons 3-5 were done by a new studio comprised of left over animators and writers from the old studio, hence it wasn’t as good.

            In 2003 Spike aired a new crop of episodes by the original creator, targeted towards adult audiences. I personally liked it, but it flopped.

    that’s a nice move for sure, on the other hand it doesn’t really help Nintendo’s sales after all. But yeah, positive press is good press.

    You’re right Ashley, Microsoft is doing a better job at selling the Wii U than Nintendo.

    I don’t mean to make fun of Sony as well but this picture is funny

    • http://about.me/overlordror Ashley King

      I’m reserving judgement for Sony because I haven’t seen anything from them yet that makes me question their motives like I have with Microsoft.

      • jay

        I don’t see how Sony’s conference was any better. They showed nothing but year old Tech Demo’s and a few games.

        Unlike Nintendo, they showed the new controller but for the life of them couldn’t show us how it’ll work in gameplay. Maybe it’s because they’re not game developers.

        When Nintendo showed off the Wii U gamepad, they at least had dozens of games showing off its functionality.

        • http://about.me/overlordror Ashley King

          I never said Sony’s conference was better. I said they didn’t display the downright anti-consumer technology that Microsoft has. When I purchase something, I want to be able to have access to it when I want it, not when the company I bought it from dictates that.

          We’ll see more of what Sony has planned at E3.

        • Madmagican

          …although Sony did show off some worthwhile games and stated that they’re focusing on the games
          Microsoft didn’t do that

          • readypembroke

            Yeah, all they pretty much showed off was entertainment things which I don’t care about and also they showed off the new Kinect which again I don’t care about either.

    While I am not crazy about those features of the Xbox One, I am also not crazy about rabid fans who feel the need to hate on another system hoping that people will pay attention to their failed system. I notice how they attack MS but leave Sony alone. I guess you love Japanese only system huh? Now of course I won’t get a One because I don’t want to be spied on, but I do want a system that can do things. Looks like the PS4 may be it, but not the Wii U.

    • D2ThaLo305

      Just buy the Wii U already! ;)

      • D.M.T

        He said that he’s not one of those gamers who hates on another system but he’s been hating the Wii U since the very beginning. This dude is the biggest hypocrite I’ve ever seen it’s not even funny.

        • D2ThaLo305

          Maybe he really wants a Wii U, but doesn’t buy cause his friends will laugh at him for being a weak console??? Grow a pair already!

          • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

            Well, I will admit that if the Wii U ever had something that would make be buy it, I would buy it online as I would feel too embarrassed to buy one in a store.

          • jay

            ” I would feel too embarrassed to buy one in a store.”

            What a pussy.

            I’ve met more gangsters who own a Wii than anything.

            AND UNLIKE YOU, I was in a REAL gang and lived in a tough neighborhood.

            You’re living in a fanboy world. NO ONE GIVES A FUCK what you but at a retail store. GET OUT sometime and meet REAL people. REAL LIFE is NOTHING like the fanboy wars you see on youtube or ign.

            Seriously dude, when’s the last time you went grocery shopping and someone said, “Hurr hurr you’re buying apples? That’s a baby food it means you’re a gay virginz lol”

          • Nintedward

            I agree with this. I used to live in of the roughest areas in Manchester and Gangsters were playing mother fucking Wii sports…

          • Clel

            Dude, in the world we live in today, no one’s going to look twice if a 40 year old buys a giant rainbow-colored pony, five bras, and twenty beers. Let alone a Wii U. But if you’re too embarrassed to buy one in a store, then go ahead and buy it online.

          • jay

            You gotta be a sissy to be embarassed to buy a tech device. He lives in a fanboy world. This console wars crap hardly exists outside the internet.

          • Nintendo4life

            It does if you would take time to look.

        • Nintedward

          lol , can’t believe he had the audacity to say that. Is he for real ?

          • D.M.T

            I don’t know how he can look in the mirror and be proud of himself. This dude’s ego is way out of control

          • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

            MY ego is out of control? It is a video game system man, not your life! YOU are trying to get what I have which is why you comment all of the time and about me. 2,000 more to go…

      “I am also not crazy about rabid fans who feel the need to hate on another system hoping that people will pay attention to their failed system”
      You are a dumbass….this is exactly what you do coming on a pro-Wii U site just to downplay it and call it a failure. What hypocrisy.

      • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

        No I don’t – I don’t promote another system. I do use other systems to show you what a real system should be. I keep writing that I have no brand loyalty. MS may shoot themselves in the foot with this Xbox One spy machine. They are like Chevy. The come with a nice looking Impala, then subsequent designs are so bland and boring that it turns people away. Now the new Impala is different, but we will see if they keep it up. Maybe that is the problem with American companies – they are in consistent. Japanese companies (like Nintendo) are too predictable and give us the same OLD.

        • jay

          “Japanese companies (like Nintendo) are too predictable and give us the same OLD.”

          Yeah American developers keep us on our toes with CoD and GTA….

          • John Andalora

            All people do it. It’s not one more than the other. But it gets tiring to see the same sequels published over and over. I prefer companies try something new rather than feed people the same stuff over and over.
            It’s games like Super Mario 64 and Shadow of the Colossus that I’ll value more than any other game because they try to go outside of the box and invent something new.
            I think we all just need more of that.

          • jay

            I agree, but according to trolls Mario 64, New Super Mario Bros, Mario Galaxy and even Mario Kart are all a “rehash” of the original.

          • John Andalora

            Because it is.
            Having different characters and settings, but the same game mechanics don’t change that.
            A truly different game uses different mechanics. It’s like Paper Mario vs. Super Mario 64. They’re different, even with same characters, which is more amazing to me than making more games similar to the original.

          • Cameron

            If that’s your idea of being unoriginal with game design you must be dissatisfied with the entire market. I could argue every company “rehashes” their old IPs. If anything Nintendo is one of the companies that brings them back with more innovation. In no way did I feel like I was playing a Mario 64 rehash when I played Mario Galaxy. Pikmin 1& 2 are incredibly different. Zelda Wind Waker and Skyward Sword are radically different. In this world where companies shit out CoD sequels and ripoffs like theres no tomorrow Nintendo tries to innovate their old IPs with every new generation. I seriously doubt you as a “Nintendo fan” ever got a Nintendo console past the N64.

          • John Andalora

            I’m dissatisfied in most of the market.
            But this week I found a series of games that were new and exciting, and are fresh to me.
            I got an old PS2 last week and decided to try out the old games.
            And wow do I love them.
            Shadow of the Colossus is amazing.
            Destroy all Humans is hilarious
            Jam and Daxter
            Kingdom Hearts
            Ratchet and Clank
            Sly Cooper

            All great games that were fresh and exciting and new, and to me are fresh and exciting and new.
            I couldn’t give a crap about COD. I gave up on them a long time ago.
            And the one game that really entices me out of any other for fall is Watch Dogs. That also looks new and exciting.

            I get tired of the same rehashing, and typically I don’t like sequels. If I ever own a sequel (like Borderlands 2), it’s because I never played the original and they both are practically the same thing anyways.
            I was a fan for what Nintendo could do. I liked the N64 and GC a lot, but after the Wii, I was yearning for more of the innovative that Nintendo could do.
            I’m still waiting on that.

          • Cameron

            Coming from a PS2, 3, and future 4 owner, Sony/Square Enix does this same “rehashing” with Sly, Ratchet, Kingdom Hearts, and Jak and Dexter. Sequels aren’t inherently evil, (Pikmin 2 helped me fight through clinical depression) but I understand your desire for innovative games in this market. Don’t discredit sequels just because they’re sequels, often they bring new ways to use old mechanics. A good example is Banjo Kazooie and Tooie, both have nearly identical aesthetics and gameplay, but are completely different games. A bad example is NSMB, where every game feels like a different level pack, which I actually consider a bit of rehashing. Mario Sunshine and Galaxy feel entirely different, despite both being 3D Mario games. I understand getting sick of an IP, but that’s no reason to hate a console. The Wii U will see its fair share of good and bad sequels and installments, I’m sure.

          • John Andalora

            Sony does the same thing, I know that. But I think I just need a change.
            I don’t like sequels because most of the time it’s just more of the same. And I don’t like that. I like games that explore the possibilities and make something of themselves. I played a lot of Nintendo sequels, and I found myself wishing I hadn’t because it just didn’t satisfy as much as the last.
            It’s like getting a great burger and fries, then ordering another one after you finished. It’s good, but it’s never quite as good because it wasn’t like the first time.
            I’ll always love the new games for giving me a new way to perceive the world or explore something once unimaginable to
            me.

            I’m just not liking the console because nothing new seems to be on its way, and with less and less developers getting on board, it just looks like the attempt to innovate with a gamepad hurt their potential for creativity, and the features you do have with it just don’t feel that amazing anymore.

          • Cameron

            Wonderful 101, and a new Sigeru Miyamoto IP are coming to the console. I totally understand your viewpoint, that you like your games to be completely new from everything else, something completely different from everything else. Which means you probably will stay out of this next console gen unless something new and exciting comes along for one console in particular, but that begs the question of why did you come here to post about it?

          • John Andalora

            I might not be satisfied with this gen.
            Well, this post was based off a debate from KIWU and Someone else about how American games were just repeating over and over. I said both sides did it, and how we need new games. Then the other guy sarcastically said that some people say that the new 3d Mario’s are just rehashes, to which I replied.
            And it all went downhill from there.

          • NkoSekirei

            u know most of us enjoy every game nintendo brought out especially the classic and nintendo never rehash theirs ips they always bring something new to the table and they know how to innovate not like microsoft or sony can do on their without copying nintendo.

          • david jarman

            None of the game mechanics with killzone, gears of war, cod, assassins creed, god of war, unreal, halo, elder scroll, rainbow six, etc… There maybe minute adjustment or tweaks, but the meat of the game is the same.
            You don’t play mario 64 like you play mario sunshine. You don’t play mario sunshine like you play mario galaxy.

          • John Andalora

            Did I say I support the sequels and reboots of any of those games?

            Saving Princess Peach by collecting all of the items in open worlds that are broken up by different levels where people do something…
            To me, that’s the same game over and over. The changes with 64 to Sunshine were interesting, but not for long. You’re still doing the same things with new environments, just a different obstacle in the way to add length to the game.

          • david jarman

            They were completely different looking and feel from each other. If we go by the way just complained. Then you might as well say that for ALL games especially destiny, because its an opened world shooter game that takes place in the future after a catalyclismic event and just about everybody looks like a droid. Looks and plays just like all games like it especially the mechanics. Spartacus comment to you was dead on.

          • John Andalora

            Really? 64 and Sunshine really felt different? Felt like the same stuff to me.
            Look, I’m tired of running around in circles. The point is I want something different. I you can argue that these games are different or the same, but I don’t want another 3d Mario, Mario kart, or SSB. I would rather just play the old ones again than spend $60 on a new one. I want more experiments from Nintendo. That’s it.
            But I’m tired of trying to explain it. I’m going to go play some video games now.
            Goodbye.

          • david jarman

            And how is any of the games you mentioned for the ps4 different then anything else that’s been done before? Exactly! The fact that you’re complaining that there is nothing different on nintendo yet some of those games are also going to be on nintendo. In those games you mention you run around, you shoot bad guys or you’re the good bad guy. Not too mention its a big city, another city! You’re going to steel cars just like every other game. Just say you don’t like those games, but don’t be like those people that complain when games change and then complain when it doesn’t. Having fun playing games, I will to! Go ahead and reply if you must, but you’re right it’s time to play video games. See you on the next thread.

          Sony does the same as well. More powerful graphics, but in the end its still the same old. Nothing’s changed. I love my wii u cause it has given me some new experiences. Nintendoland and zombiu are awesome to play with the gamepad. Same with mass effect 3. Co-op on nano assault and black ops is the way it should be. Just giving my two cents on the same old comment cause each time nintendo something different with their consoles.

        I don’t think he even knows what hypocrisy is.

    • Nintenjoe82

      I’m surprised by the outpouring of anti-MS sentiment that this has caused but I am pretty sure some of it is Wii U owners who are desperate not to let the Wii U be the losing console and most of it is Sony fans that are a little hurt about having the most powerful but least successful console (relative to expectations) of last gen.

      I see no evidence that Sony will be any better than MS for DRM and other features like that. Sony’s presentation discussed how you’d have access to everything at all times and streaming services for PS3 games. All of those features have/require “always online DRM” but I don’t see any Sony fans acknowledging that.

      Everyone laughed when MS said they were making a gaming PC console with online and a subscription service and they all thought the RROD and PS3 would kill the 360. The fact is, average consumers or ‘casual gamers’ are the only ones who can make enough of a difference to the success of a console and they don’t all care about DRM, they just want the latest fad that everyone else is enjoying and they don’t want to pay loads of it.

    • david jarman

      Then buy the ps4 and leave the wii u alone. Dang! It’s not rocket science! Personally, I think you’re going to be missing out on some amazing games being narrow minded about adult only gaming.

      • John Andalora

        If I may ask, which games will someone who doesn’t buy a Wii U be missing out on?

          and all the other unannounced exclusives.

          • John Andalora

            I would not miss anyone of these games if they were never released.

            Most of the games listed are just reboots of old concepts, and personally, I feel like I could just play the old ones and have no different of an experience. I could play SSBB or MKW and just pretend its the new one. I don’t care for new people to fight with or new places to race. I want something new. Something special.
            Wonderful 101 sounds interesting, but it sounds like a concept that would run dry quickly.
            I could go back and play Wind Wakef and VC Games with no regrets, and none of this is interesting to me.
            ZombiU was a good game, but nothing I would’ve regretted not playing.
            I’m just not interested in these games.

          • Clel

            You asked someone a question and I answered it for him.

          • John Andalora

            And I responded to it, showing you why those games are not exciting.
            So what’s the problem?

          • Clel

            Then if you’re not interested in the Wii U and what it has to offer, then I find it quite silly of you to hang around here still.

          • John Andalora

            Because I’m waiting for something that does interest me to come out.

          • NkoSekirei

            then stop whining and complaing on every post u make and stfu cause most of us on here like every single nintendo game and were not that picky like u are

          • John Andalora

            I can’t express my opinion if it’s bad about the precious Nintendo console, huh?

          • NkoSekirei

            the problem is ur a douche whos doesnt have good taste in video games

          • jay

            You can twist this the other way too.

            There’s not a SINGLE game that I would miss on the ps4 either. Ironically Nintendo is the only one bringing the New lately. The gamepad alone brings a new twists on “reboots”.

          • John Andalora

            And what is Nintendo doing with that game pad in most of the games they’re adding? Maps and “off TV” that takes the game off the TV…
            Wow. That’s really great…

            If you don’t want PS4, that’s fine. But I’m not talking about PS4. I’m talking about how Nintendo is just making boring reboots that will only attract fans of those series. I want something new. Nintendo’s done that before. They should do more of it.
            A true gift to the gaming world is making something fresh and exciting. That’s how you get fans. I’m tired of everything being remade, from every game company, but Nintendo right now is one of the worst offenders.

          • Clel

            Has it occurred to you that you just might not like videogames in general? Some people prefer TV shows, reading, doing sports, trolling, debating, and whatnot. Some like all of those. But from your comments you seem to dislike videogames, and especially Nintendo ones because they’re just ‘boring reboots’ and ‘the same old same old’.

          • John Andalora

            Here’s a list of all the Nintendo games I like:
            Super Mario Bros (NES)
            Super Mario World (SNES)
            Star Fox (SNES)
            Kirby Superstar (SNES) (didn’t play the NES version)
            Mario Kart 64 (N64)
            Mario Party (N64)
            Super Smash Bros (N64)
            Pokemon Stadium (N64)
            Pokemon Yellow (GBC)
            Super Mario 64 (N64)
            Pokemon Snap (N64)
            Kirby’s Air Ride (GC)
            Luigi’s Mansion (GC)
            Animal Crossing (GC)
            WarioWare Inc (GC)
            Rhythm Heaven (DS)

            There were other versions of these games that I played, but none of them compared to the original. None of them were as good as the awe that I felt from these games.

          • Cameron

            Imma guess you hate the following:
            Mario Bros. 3 (NES)
            Yoshi’s Island (Mario World 2) (SNES)
            Kirby Nightmare in Dreamland (GBA)
            Mario Sunshine (GC)
            Mario Party 2 (N64)
            SSBM (GC)
            Pokémon Stadium 2 (N64)
            Every non generation 1 Pokemon game
            Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon (3DS)
            Animal Crossing: Wild World (DS)
            WarioWare Touched and Smooth Moves (DS and Wii)
            Rhythm Heaven Fever (Wii)
            And every other Nintendo game not listed.

            Almost all of which are considered Nintendo classics. You can’t just disregard a game just because it’s a sequel.

            Yes
            Yes
            Yes
            No… That was fine. Just not as good.
            Same
            Yes
            Yes
            I did like gold a bit, but looking back, not as much.
            Didn’t play ( don’t have one)
            Yes
            Yes and Yes
            Didn’t play.

            I did play them. I just didn’t like them as much, or at all.

            How do you enjoy the original super mario bros but hate 3? The point of 3 was to take everything good about one, add new features, and tons more content, which executed all of them beautifully. Yoshi’s Island was COMPLETELY different than super mario world, and is also one of the greatest mario games of all time. I’m not telling you how to think and what your opinions should be, but based on what you’ve said in the past makes me think you’re one of those people that hate change, yet when they do something similar you hate that too because it doesn’t create quite the same feel as the original. You know what the real problem I have with you is? EVERY GODDAMNED game company is guilty of this, so while you blindly attack nintendo you fail to mention that almost every other gaming company does the same thing but worse. GTFO before you talk about nintendo games not being original, or unexciting.

          • John Andalora

            Is it not appropriate to talk about Nintendo on a website dedicated to Nintendo? Am I crazy for doing so?
            Also, in another conversation linked off of this one,, I said all people were guilty of it, but Nintendo’s doing a rather big share of it.
            Look who’s calling the kettle black.

          • Sqarticus

            I’m just sayain if you don’t enjoy nintendo, or more specifically the wii u, than leave, because it causes fans to have brain hemorrhages every time you post another comment.

          • Clel

            Listen, the problem is not that you’re saying negative things about Nintendo. That’s fine, because that may or may not be true. The PROBLEM is that you KEEP saying that Nintendo’s games are just ‘reboots’ and ‘rehashes’ (which isn’t true, they are sequels… but anyways) and that they are getting boring… OVER and OVER again! WE GET IT! We get that you don’t like Nintendo and its games, and that you somehow are giving the Wii U a chance even though you’ve given up on Nintendo and haven’t seen the big games come out yet… eh, don’t know how that works, but we get it! You already said that in the past 50 posts of yours.

          • Eric Degrechie

            You come off as really pretentious, you know that?

          • Eric Degrechie

            No one else can help that you’re a purist and that you never like sequels. You even went so far as to exclude Super Mario Bros 2 and 3 from your list (because they’re sequels after all), but you left in Super Mario World (which is just Super Mario 4 anyway).

            Mario Sunshine and Galaxy are both sequels to Mario 64, but neither of the games are really alike. There are similarities, but I’ve never seen a sequel make such drastic changes as the 3D Mario platformers.

          • Nintendo4life

            Than Wii U is not for you.But When the new zelda u is released you may change your mind

          • John Andalora

            I don’t really like the Zelda series…
            Yeah.

            Then your loss. Ps4 has nothing that makes me what to pay 500 for

          • John Andalora

            Okay.
            I’m personally interested in Knack, Destiny, and The Evil Within. Watch Dogs is cool too, and the Thief project for consoles looks interesting enough to see(that was just PC releases, so I couldn’t really play it).
            But, that’s just me.

          • NkoSekirei

            then leave this site u douche cause many of us here want to play those new games especially new zelda coming next year

          • D.M.T

            I don’t understand why you are here on Wii U Daily if you are not interested in Wii U games. It makes more sense for you to go to PS4 Daily but no you’re still here. Seems like you’re trying to force your opinion to us or you just want some attention. The Wii U is not for you, sell it and buy another system.

          • John Andalora

            I’m trying to give the Wii U a chance, cause I’ve had years of great Nintendo games, so I might as well give Nintendo some time before I just go with something different,
            What amazed me about Nintendo is how they could make something new and unique, like Paper Mario, Luigi’s Mansion, Kirby’s Air Ride, Pokemon Snap, Super Mario 64, WarioWare, and all the other “firsts” of the series.
            I didn’t like Nintendo for the sequels and reboots of all their old games. I liked them for their new ones.
            But, these games just sound so dull and unimaginative.
            I’m not trying to force my opinion, but I’m telling people why I’m not impressed. I like Nintendo for what they made, not for what they’re remaking or reselling on other consoles.
            I just want them to make something special and unique with their IP rather than just cheap reboots of the same engines with some slight changes.

          • Nintendo4life

            If you really are a nintendo fan why even complain..There are games there you have to look and from what i have seen so far there are a ton.

          • John Andalora

            Because what Nintendo is releasing isn’t what I’m a fan of.
            I’m a fan of the inventive and unique Nintendo, not the make the same games again with a different skin Nintendo.
            I want something new. Nintendo’s done it before. They just don’t seem to be doing it now.

          • D.M.T

            You talk about Nintendo “rehashing” their games but all you do is rehash you comments. Every time I see a comment of you, you are telling us the same things over and over and it’s annoying because i don’t agree nor do I believe what you’re saying. You said you are trying to give Wii U a chance but then you told someone else on Wii U Daily that you agree with EA that Wii U is crap. If you really think that Wii U is crap then you are not giving the Wii U a chance because you are already judging the Wii U. Giving the Wii U a chance means that you won’t be quick to judge and you will remain patient until the big games come out this summer.

          • John Andalora

            Every conversation runs back to the same thing.
            Here’s how a conversation goes.
            “Wow! This looks amazing!”
            “I’m not really interested in this because of X”
            “Well then, you must be a troll. Wii U is great, and you are stupid.”

            Every one of them.
            So I have to re-explain my position to show I like Nintendo and I am not a troll, but it doesn’t matter anyways. The second you make a negative comment here, people automatically think you are a troll who just hates Nintendo.

            And frankly, right now I do think the Wii U is crap. I haven’t used it for anything I couldn’t have already gotten from
            my Xbox 360 since April (Netflix and YouTube.) Right now it’s sitting inside its box. It’s been in there since last week. The releases weren’t that great, what’s coming out looks boring, and fall holds nothing of great interest. I’ve been trying to give the Wii U chances by hoping that something good will come out, but it’s just looking bleak for this year.
            We’re all allowed to make judgements about something. I’m just waiting for Nintendo to prove me wrong.

          • david jarman

            So what could you have played on the Xbox that wii u did? Zombiu? I’m sorry mass effect 3’s mapping and using the stylus is more pin point accurate and intuitive then telling the connect what to do. Blackops 2 has better connection and having to not split screen when a friend is a plus. Nintendoland was novel idea and shows off lots of great ideas that can be implemented into future games. I enjoy nfs on my wii u over my Xbox. Don’t get me wrong, I like my Xbox. I just think you’re not giving the wii u a little credit. I’m not saying you have to like it, I’m just saying there are some games that the wii u does better, but developers and publishers aren’t letting those games shine even further by not giving them the full support the other consoles get. Beside you should know by now most console launches are. They usually are quick ports or mediocre launch games. Beside this was wii u soft launch for early adopters.

          • John Andalora

            ZombiU was fine, but I honestly haven’t picked it up since I beat it.
            I never played Mass Effect, so 3 seemed a little late to enter.
            COD is boring, and having a 6 inch screen to me is worse than splitting my 32 inch screen into 16 inch.
            Nintendo land was okay, but only if you had friends over to play it. My friends and I only played it a few times.
            NFS, not a fan…

            When I bought the Wii U, the features were really cool and fun. I liked controlling my TV and console, and using the pad for games was fun too. However, now that most of the new games either just have maps or off TV play, and with other games that won’t be able to integrate the gamepad without losing so much for multiplayer (Mario kart, SSB), the gamepad is slowly losing its charm. I also feel like the tilting and turning is interesting, but only for so long. I’d be more appreciative of the console if Nintendo did more with it than things other games couldn’t have just placed on the screen.
            And I guess I’m also just kind of bored with the new versions of the Mario kart and SSB and Mario party because they just get more and more boring to me each time. Now, if I want to play the games, I just play the old ones.
            I’m not seeing the innovative and unique style of the Wii U, and it just seems like everyone’s having a hard time integrating it without losing part of the game.

          • david jarman

            Actually it’s not and its a better view then splitting screen. You get full view. You don’t get that at all no matter what size of tv u have it still cuts it to fit. The six inch screen seemed larger and showed more view then my Xbox on a 52″. I’m starting to have my doubts about you owning the wiiu. Not saying its true, but that’s how I feel.

          • John Andalora

            You lose a bit with split screen, but I can see the enemies and myself a lot better than on a 6 inch screen. I played games in off TV mode and had a bigger problem with where i was going or killing because it was on a smaller screen than my smallest TV.
            I’ve tried posting pictures of my Wii U before, but Discus is rather pathetic and doesn’t allow for pictures from my phone. What can I do to convince you I have a Wii U?

          • david jarman

            I’m just giving you hard time. I have no troubles at all seeing where I’m going and coming from at all. Enemies are clear and sniping is awesome from the gamepads point of view.
            I did a 27-1 kdr on blops at 2am when all the kiddies were asleep. Like I said the screen gives full view and I do not have a hard time seeing people especially far away and what makes even better is I did it while lying down. To each their own, I guess.

          • D.M.T

            Maybe you are not a troll but you ARE annoying because you keep spreading your negativity while others here are trying to stay positive. You don’t have to re-explain things so many times, you don’t like Wii U games we get it.

            If you think Wii U is crap then you AREN’T giving the Wii U a chance, you are just judging it because you’re disappointed. Shigeru Miyamoto already confirmed that he’s working on a new IP and Wonderful 101 is coming this summer as well as Game & Wario that looks like a fun mini game collection. But no you are ignoring these things because you are too busy complaining.

            You are allowed to make judgement but I don’t respect people who are too quick to judge because it shows that you aren’t too bright or it shows that you lack patience. I really hope that Nintendo can make you happy at E3 because I would hate to see you bitch and moan for another year. Stop torturing yourself and get rid of the Wii U if you don’t like it.

          • John Andalora

            You think I’m repeating?
            You know how many times I hear that 101 and GW stuff?

            I think you’ve even repeated them to me once or twice.

            I am disappointed. I bought a Wii U for new games. That’s why I buy a console. I’m bored with it. The games are boring.
            I can’t make judgements about something when I use it? I can’t express why I don’t like something? I mean, when other people bash the other consoles that haven’t even come out yet, you don’t bat an eye, but if it’s the Wii U, then it becomes a problem…
            And frankly, I don’t think 6 months is “too quick to judge.” I think I can say what I feel about it in that time span.

            I don’t lack patience. I lack excitement. None of the games for Wii U in the upcoming year look exciting. Maybe to you they do, but it’s tiring.
            I hope E3 is exciting. But so far, Nintendo would have to completely change their roster to make me happy.
            Nintendo gave me a lot of their time. I’ll give them some of mine.
            But if you think I won’t express my concerns with the console on the way, you are sadly mistaken.

          • D.M.T

            Here you are repeating yourself again. The difference between you and me is that you repeat things for no reason. we understand why you don’t like the Wii U but you don’t seem to understand that Nintendo is working on new IPs which is why I repeat myself because I want you to shut up about it.

            I already said that you are allowed to make judgement but you can’t tell me that Wii U is a failure because Wii U doesn’t have real competition yet and the big games aren’t out yet so you can’t judge it as failure just 6 months after launch.

            I already told you that you should SELL your Wii U if you don’t like it. If I don’t like a console, I will sell it and buy another one. I won’t keep it and bitch about it like you are doing. I don’t care why you are not excited and I don’t care why you are bored, just quit the bitching and moaning dude, it’s pathetic. Maybe you should stop buying Nintendo consoles every generation like me. I take breaks from Nintendo games sometimes, I skipped the N64 era and the Wii era. You need to skip the Wii U era and come back 7 years later when Nintendo releases the Wii U successor. But for the love of god quit bitching and moaning, it’s pathetic and annoying. Sell your Wii U and buy PS4, problem solved.

          • John Andalora

            Oh yeah, Mario Kart and SSB are soooo new.
            Don’t worry. You’ll see in a year.
            I might just have to. But, for now, I’m going to express my opinion and hopefully be surprised.
            Goodbye.

          • D.M.T

            I didn’t say Mario Kart and SSB is new, I just want a sequel to both and I won’t bitch and moan like you, that’s for sure. So let me get this straight…I told you that everyone is annoyed by your rehashed comments and yet you will continue to express your opinion? Lol ok you aren’t hurting anyone but yourself fool. We will continue to be happy, you can keep spreading negativity all you want. It’s becoming pretty obvious that you’re doing this for attention

          • david jarman

            Yeah, but no one knows what the new Zelda, mario 3d, retros games and the new smash bros look like, let alone what they are about. So, yeah. I agree with giving it sometime. 101 looks very imaginative in my opinion and so does pikmin 3. I have faith in them.

          • John Andalora

            3D Mario and SSB looked and felt similar from the other ones. Zelda might be nice, but I don’t typically like Zelda. I’ll hope for 101.

          • david jarman

            I should have said that better.
            Based on what little changes there were, I don’t think the next one in the series will be any better.

            And, I’ve tried different Zelda games (Link to past, Wind waked, skyward sword). I’m just not a fan of the series.

        • david jarman

          Any great game that is slated to release on nintendo only. You may not find them great. All the games so far are great wholesome and fun games. I’m sorry wonderful 101 doesn’t look like a game were the fun runs dry. The same can be said about call of duty, assassin’s creed, halo, uncharted, dead space, killzone, metal gear solids, resident evils and any gta plus its clones. These are all great games, but just ALL video games will eventually lose its fun momentarily. That’s why you put it down and play it again later down the road.
          Pikmin 3 has atmosphere and looks like blast to play.
          I owned all playstations and xboxes. I sold my ps3 cause I got bored of it. I spent more time on my Xbox360. I starting feeling like games lack the fun and enjoyment that they use to have. Nintendo always brings me back to that. Games these days are just like reality shows. Most games are about a dark reality or based off it. Just sad, depressing and bleak. Almost every game is about dismal future. I think games that a person would be missing out if you didn’t have a wii u would be the games that capture the imagination and inner child spirit of being a hero.

          • david jarman

            Sorry about the typos. Discuss is crapping out and not letting me edit.

          • John Andalora

            Mario Party 10, Mario Kart 8, and SSB 4 don’t bring child-like wonder in my eye.
            What would is a reinvention of how the game is done.
            And, yes, there are a lot of bleak games. But for every bleak game there’s another unique game around the corner, like Portal, unfinished Swan, Guacamelee, watch Dogs, Knack, Minecraft, Super Meat Boy, Spec Ops: The Line, …
            But Nintendo making the same kind of games and putting new skins on them doesn’t inspire me. It just depresses me.
            They should just make new things. Like they used to.

          • Cameron

            You’d be happy to know Portal is a sucessor of narbacular drop. Minecraft is a ripoff of Terraria and Infiniminer (notch himself admitted to it). Watch dog’s open world is based of Assasins Creed 3’s success. Super Meat Boy is a sequel to a game called Meat Boy and was expected to be a free flash game like its predecessor. True innovation is nearly impossible to find in this day and age.

          • John Andalora

            -Neat. I didn’t have PC gaming, so Portal was my first look at that.
            -Minecraft can’t be based off Terraria. Terraria was released 2 years after Minecraft, and Infiniminer was released at the same time as Minecraft. Minecraft and Infiniminer were May 2009, and Terraria was 2011.
            – open world games aren’t all the same thing. What you do and how you do it differentiates the game. Open world games and sandboxes are just how a game is set up. A game like GTA, Godfather, Bully or AC have a similar sandbox setup, but that doesn’t mean they’re the same game. They’re all different because of everything around the sandbox.
            -again, no PC.

            And still, the other games I listed are purely original too. Just because one game has you shooting or fighting doesn’t mean it’s the same as every other game.

          • Cameron

            http://m.kongregate.com/forums/3-general-gaming/topics/146585
            Terraria was released as a standalone in 2007, never trust steam release dates.

            I know AC3 wasn’t the first open world game, but Ubisoft started developing it after AC3 play testers liked the open world ness.

            Spec ops is special, sure, but its not like IRS the first of its kind.

            Never heard of the last one.

          • John Andalora

            Huh. I need to stop looking at Wikipedia.
            Infiniminer looks like a nice game, but Minecraft did greatly improve on it. In Infiminer, you can only dig. In Minecraft, you can dig and create. That’s where the creativity of Minecraft comes from. It’s not just about the digging, but the mission to the Ender. There’s so much more in Monecraft than Infiminer. But, I will admit it did come off of Infiniminer.
            GTA had open world long before AC3. A lot of other games were doing it too.
            But, again, whether or not it’s a sandbox doesn’t mean you’re required to do the same things. Bully and GTA are totally different, while Godfather is different from both of them, and LA Noire is even different from that. It’s not how big the world around them is, or whether or not it’s a sandbox: it’s how they interact and do in it.
            What is IRS?

            What last one? Spec Ops was the last one.

          • david jarman

            You’re only naming a few. If you’re gonna drop names. Drop them all. Mario 3d, new. Zelda, retros game, shadows of the externals, deus ex, splinter cell black list(sorry co-op will out rock the others) watch dog is on wii u too and hacking with the gamepad is more imaginative then pushing a button hack, you don’t know how mario kart will be, bayonetta 2, project car with wiiu specific that has developer hyped up, monolith soft, the wonderful 101, pikmin 3, zombiu 2, game and wario looks real fun for group parties, miyamoto’s new ip, shin’en has two new games for wii u, plus the original designer for conkers bad fur day has something cooking.
            You and some other people have commented on the whole map thingy. I find it more intuitive to be on the second screen then having to push a button and interrupt the game. Plus, I would rather have it on the second giving more view on the main screen. Not to mention its bigger and more clearer on the second screen then the little tiny maps on the main screen, especially in games like call of duty and nfs. I find it to be more of a blessing.

          • John Andalora

            Only game that interests me on the first list is Watch Dogs, and the using a gamepad is a rumor. Also, how would it be different on the gamepad? Pressing the stylus on the screen? Frankly, given how people develop for it, the gamepad is probably just going to be a map.

            As for the others, you don’t know how they’re going to be either. You assume they’ll all be amazing, but you don’t know if they will.
            All I’m saying is I’m not interested because I want something different.

            I always look at maps when I’m standing still, so pressing start didn’t bother me. I also liked it in the corner because I like doing a quick glance down a little rather than moving my hands and face down to look at the map.

          • david jarman

            You say you want something different, but you want the ps4 and play the same way as always. Pressing the stylus on the screen? No imagination at all. Probably have the second screen look like the actual device used for hacking. When playing fps I think having more view trumps having a map in the corner any day plus I can call and target an strike faster with the stylus then with the thumb sticks.
            Ps. You’re assuming the other games won’t and you assume that ps4 will.
            I think all you really care about is who has the best graphics cause other then that the ps4 offers nothing new.

          • John Andalora

            Playing different games means playing different games, not playing games differently.
            The controller isn’t the problem. You could play the same COD game on different consoles, but that doesn’t make it different.

            He uses his cellphone to hack, not a giant screen in front of him. Not sure how they’ll try to incorporate that.
            I don’t care for graphics. I’m playing a PS2 I got last week and loving it more than the modern games on the Wii U. I like new and inventive games more than I ever would care for a new controller or screen.

            Wii u is getting watch dog, splinter cell, shadow of the externals, sonic lost world, whatever ea is cooking, wii u’s logo is on destiny’s website, batman origins, bayonetta 2, and more to come.

            He maybe using his cell phone, but it would be nice to see what he is seeing and also it would be cool feature if you could text from gamepad or view text.
            A feature that could be well implemented would be seeing what a camera sees that’s been hacked while being able to keep an eye on your characters position and move him accordingly to avoid being detected.

            As for having different games. I would rather have fun games then different games. Games that make me smile.
            My question to you is why did you buy wii u? The first year games were no secret.

          • Clel

            His phone has a screen. Kind of like and iPhone, that sort of thing.

      Wii U announces a Gampad controller:

      “Nintendo’s gay faggots need to learn what REAL gaming is. lol you fanboys are VIRGINS!! Playing with that gimmick shit!! Nintendo makes stupid japanese baby games!! Wii U gonna fail and be discontinued! Wait until the REAL next gen xbox reveal lol!”

      Microsoft announces that their next gen system will focus on TV. Will require connect to be always on and will charge a fee to play used games:

      “While I am not crazy about those features of the Xbox One”

        Hahahahaha that is priceless!

    • MujuraNoKamen

      We’re complaining at XBone for banning used games, forced internet connection, not being backwards compatible and spying on people. Yeah we’re leaving Sony alone because they’ve not done anything so damn stupid, are you saying we’re fanboys for liking 2 rival systems? That doesn’t seem fanboyish to me. We’d be saying the exact same things if Sony or Nintendo forced internet connection, banned used games etc but since MS are the only ones stupid and greedy enough to do this, then they’re the only ones who are going to get any flak for it. We’re not hating the system, we’re hating the features, if the XBone was just a new console with good games, no stupid fees, no forcing you to do a dozen pointless things then I and most people here would praise it for doing so but since they’re making anyone who buys an XBone, get be spied on, charged extra and all that – fuck it!

    • Nintendo4life

      Ps4 is a outdated PC and xbox one is crap..Any questions?

      Wii U is the real way to go. 8 cores will not save them.

    lol!!!!!

    ”Will I have to pay a fee to sell it ?”

    • Clel

      Yes.

    • InterTreble

      Even to trash it

    • MetroidZero

      LOOOOOOOOOOL!

  • InterTreble

    They would have said just: “Wii U is a console, One not. Perhaps a multimedia center, or a Smart TV replacement. But not a console.”. Simply.

    • jay

      That would have been bad in practice. It would have promoted the One just as much.

      • InterTreble

        This, man.

  • Héctor I. Rivera Negrón

    In a more extreme form of privacy violation, are you sure the kinetic cam isn’t spying on you when is suppostly off. Are they not watching you even when you’re not using it. Why the 24 hours internet check? It’s then when the xbox send all the info recollected. Ask yourself this and think if you really want this to happen to you.

    • RyuNoHadouken

      thats always been my concern with online cameras…ive never owned a kinect…no way

    • jay

      Sony has got caught hacking into peoples PCs in the past. Companies want to spy to see what the consumer is into.

  • Erik

    Hahahah first the UK getting sales, Germany is following suit :) Guess the ShitBox-Done will be a thing of the past already considering that the whole BS about microsoft being money whores. Good job Germany, way to give us Wii U players more and more light in the stage :) Guess life after World War 2 is getting much better :)

  • John Andalora

    Everyone just needs to read this article.
    The MS VP already stated that they have no intention of taking personal information.
    http://www.justpushstart.com/2013/05/xbox-ones-kinect-will-not-breach-your-privacy-says-microsoft/
    Seriously, the whole “anti-privacy” thing is just a rumor that you all need to ignore.

    • audi lover

      What and you belive what an ms vp fat cat tells you, gullible cums to mind

      • jay

        Typical “hardcore” gamer believes anything these companies feed them

        • John Andalora

          So trusting strangers online who’ve seen just as much of the Xbox One as we have makes more sense than trusting the people who make the damn console?
          Am I the only sane one left?

          I mean, practically everyone here trusts what Nintendo says about the Wii U. Why are you trusting the company about the information they give you over other people’s information?

          • jay

            You don’t get it do you?

            MS/Sony have been lying to their fanbase for years. Where have you been the last decade?

            Did you see the recent Nintendo Directs? Nintendo even admits to its own faults. That’s why so many people trust them.

            BTW how did that Milo game come out? LOL

          • John Andalora

            Nintendo doesn’t admit it’s faults. It just keeps lowering its expectations and claiming that’s better.
            Remember virtual boy?

            And, all companies have lied once in a while. It happens. I know that.
            But, overall, the truths each company says outweigh the lies. And, if a company tells me that one of their major products isn’t going to be used to spy on you, I’ll believe it.

            If you honestly will not trust a company about its game console, you’re everything that’s wrong with the Internet.
            Do you people honestly think that Microsoft would make such a big lie about spying on people? Don’t any of you think that the massive negative backlash of something like that would destroy them? Don’t you think They know that?

          • NkoSekirei

            yes they have u moron u need to get reading glasses or need to take ur ear plugs out to actual listen to one of nintendo directs and instead of pulling false information out of ur @$$

          • ItzameyaToad

            Im sure you are one of those people who believe the Government would never spy on you because they “Say” they won’t.

          • John Andalora

            Apparently I’m the only one who has enough decency to trust someone.

          • ItzameyaToad

            Im not saying don’t trust someone but you are talking about a corperation that has not made clear what its intentions are, screwed people over with the Xbox 360 launching with faulty hardware/poor cooling, says a camera that can pick up me talking in my room and see what im doing won’t be used to spy on me when over the past decade companies like Google have been getting heat for telling peoples search habits/violating peoples right to privacy etc. All im saying is you can’t just excuse Microsoft from scrutinization just because some head guy promises they won’t violate peoples privacy. Should we give Kinect 2 a chance? Yes, but microsoft needs to show steps it will take to keep peoples privacy secure, not leave lingering questions like they have since the reveal.

      • John Andalora

        If you can’t believe the company that actually makes the console and would face massive backlashes if they were caught lying and spying on people, who are you going to believe?
        If the choice is random websites online run by people you’ll never know who’ve never seen the console longer than any other person who watched the reveal, than I would probably recommend you get off the Internet altogether, since you clearly don’t understand how it works.

        • jay

          You really are a puppet.

          I bet you also believe EA, because hey, after all They’re the ones in the corporate suits!!

          • John Andalora

            I do.
            They said the Wii U was crap.

            Sounds about right to me.

          • Shane ♓

            You do realize EA is just butthurt because ninty gave an FU to integrating their origin service with the console, right?

          • John Andalora

            Pretty much.
            But they never really lied about any of it.
            They were going to be Nintendo’s partner, then they weren’t.
            Then they became Friends with Xbox.

          • NkoSekirei

            ur becoming more of a jack@$$ by posting lies do us all a favor and stfu u troll

        • Cameron

          Iwata literally said the Wii U is doing bad due to a lack of games and advertising. EA claims their DRM isn’t really DRM. Microsoft lied about kinect spying. Last I checked Nintendo’s last scandal was the YouTube Let’s Play affairs, which they openly admitted to.

          Face it, you’re just as blind as the Nintendo fanboys you hate. I’ve gone multiplatform since the days of the GameCube and PS2 and even I know Nintendo is more trustworthy than your standard game company. Why don’t you just crawl back to IGN with all your other Xbros.

          • John Andalora

            Remember when Nintendo told everyone that Injustice: Gods Among Us would have certain DLC when it didn’t?


            How about how you could “draw” like how they did in the video above (2:32-), or use motion controls with Wii sports?
            Nintendo lied. But do you care?
            No.

            So don’t call me blind without first looking to see if you are too.

          • Cameron

            I never said Nintendo was perfect. The DLC porting was the developer’s choice, Nintendo had no say in the matter. The drawing concept turned into miiverse, which you can draw and post about games in. And what are you talking about with Wii sports? you actually do use motion controls. Did you ever have a Wii?

            You’re supporting your argument without even understand.

          • John Andalora

            You didn’t view the video.
            Look at how Wii U gamepad is used in sports. Do you see that now?
            Look at how he drawed, colored, and made the picture of Link. You can’t do any of that in the cheap little MiiVerse tablet. It only let’s you put down one type of sensitivity.
            Also, why wouldn’t developers put DLC in Wii U game? More money for them.

            Don’t respond unless you actually check out what I show you.

          • ItzameyaToad

            Oh for christ sakes that is a feature that is coming later and you know it! it’s like Microsoft showing Skype and it not being on the console right at launch, it’s coming moron! Come on pull your head out of your ass you have nothing Solid in your argument.

          • John Andalora

            They never said it was a later feature. They advertised it like it was going to be on day one for the console.
            Did Nintendo say it was coming later in that video? What indicated to you that it would be later?
            They lied, and you know it. But to you it doesn’t matter unless it’s a company that isn’t Nintendo.

          • ItzameyaToad

            What part of the video ever said it wouldn’t be a later game? I didn’t once see it say it would be a day one feature so no they did not lie about anything. Don’t grasp at straws, Microsoft is getting the negative publicity they deserve by not being transparent and you would rather trust a company that wishes to avoid answering a few simple questions and requiring a camera to always be on and always connected to the console. Sorry Microsoft doesn’t have the best track record and nothing you have mentioned has put any reason as to why Nintendo can’t be trusted over Microsoft.

          • Chris Heskin

            You are a moron, clearly all the things you are claiming Nintendo lied about haven’t been released yet. Thanks for playing though.

    • david jarman

      It can’t be proven.

      • John Andalora

        What can’t be proven? That he said it or that MS won’t spy on you?

        • david jarman

          Sorry, that ms won’t spy on you. That can be said with anything with a camera, but you can usually disconnect or turn off most items with cameras.

          • John Andalora

            Oh, you and I both know that if MS ever spied on someone, at least one worker would sell the story and become famous.
            It can and would be proven rather quickly, and MS knows that.
            They wouldn’t spy on people because they’d know the backlash when they were caught.

          • smashbrolink

            I don’t put this kind of thing beyond Microsoft when they’re already doing other things that piss people off.
            The fact that it’s even POSSIBLE to do this, means that all it would take is one bad employee taking logs of Kinect images of naked people walking past the Kinect and saving it to their computer. You KNOW that one would try it eventually if given the opportunity, because since when have criminals cared about getting caught until it actually happens, much less cared about the employer that they’ll be bringing down with them?

  • John Madsen

    i find this funny because gamestop has even said they will not sell the console because of no used game sales where they have said if the ps4 and the wii u support used games they will promote and sell there console

    • Christian Schoff

      They are back tracking because Microsoft is making deals with certain retailers to handle used X-bone games traded in.

    • Andreas Sunde

      Sorce?

  • sean

    actually the guys at ign have already done a hands on with the xbox!!!

    • Cerus98

      Not hardly. They had tech demos of the controllers.

  • Cameron

    I knew stuff like this was coming, I mean the Xbone’s features (that they showed anyway) are oriented towards the US, and a lot of the features won’t work outside of the US, not to mention moral objections from spying with the kinect (even though Microsoft says they “won’t” be doing that). Glad to see someone promoting the U outside of Nintendo though.

    • ItzameyaToad

      Agreed. The one reason I think alot of American gamers like the Xbox 360/Original Xbox is because it focused more on America with exclusives etc. Much like Sony and Nintendo do with Japan users. But the clear differance is both Sony and Nintendo reward each region in some way shape or form which is why I love Nintendo/Sony over Microsoft, because everyone is treated as they should be as fans of a company. Hopefully Microsoft will turn it around and cater to everyone not just America and a few places in Europe but everywhere, doubht it though.

  • shoeses47

    Interesting but don’t agree with the no crap/bs part. You do still have to use a huge gamepad with the Wii U.

    • jay

      Because playing games with a controller is crap/bs……

    • Chris Heskin

      i guess that pro controller on the outside of the box doesn’t exist in your little world

    • NkoSekirei

      looks like we got a troll here and a stupid one more like it

    • smashbrolink

      That gamepad does more for gameplay than a normal controller can, and it still has all the same buttons.

  • Draud

    No crap? XD

  • ItzameyaToad

    Ha ha ha Gotta love the Germans they call what they see as a clear violation of peoples privacy! I mean really what company says “Always listening” and doesn’t expect backlash from consumers/governments? Microsoft needs to do a few things 1 make Kinect optional not mandatory 2 Allow people to choose to download games to there harddrive(or scrap that feature all together to get rid of the used games fee) 3 be more transparent with the media/consumers as many of the questions are questions easily answerable and would help Microsoft’s standings in many gamers minds.

    • Cerus98

      They can’t do any of that since kinect and all the other BS features are what the console was built on. They’d have to go back to the drawing board to do so. They’re screwed.

      • ItzameyaToad

        Well if anything they can change a few thing’s like the downloading of games requirement or the always listening part of Kinect. But really they have 5 month’s to do so, but you are right alot of the features that people are complaining about are already set in stone but heres hoping they can perhaps lessen the tension by slightly changing thing’s(that are able to be changed) they have time to do so. Will it happen? Probably not, but let’s hope they can show steps they will take to ensure privacy for Xbox One users.

  • brian murphy

    i think the xbox one will become a problem much like my xbox live games keep having issues saying i need pay to unlock to play full game when i already own them if i install the xbox one games i cant play unless i connect to the internet what are we gonna do when we move to there next console are games we pay over 60 bucks a pop will be useless and all our games we bought will be a huge loss in money unless they drop that crap im not buying it bad enough i got alot of xbox 360 and ps3 games and keep getting dead consoles at this rate nintendo is the only way to go hopefully ps4 has a better system

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Joshua-Samson/1509177659 Joshua Samson

    tbh though. unless it’s government involved. If microsoft wanted to spy on my naked with an xbox controller up my ass and my dick laying on top of the microsoft glass go ahead. Idfc. I’m not buying one probably unless a banjo game(the only reason I -sadly- bought a 360 lmao..).

    Thats why i dont understand why people say that the Wii U and 3DS are crap, because you dont see massive governments getting concerned over safety and privacy with Nintendo systems! I dont want that thing to be like another GLaDOS! Say what you want haters, but i think that this is the end of Xbox. Or maybe just a hard time for them. It is kind of sad to think that there wont be any other consoles that are mainly focused on just games. ;(

    The XBOX One and Windows 8 PC’s become major lost for Microsoft.Inc. XBOX One will discontinue July 2015.

    Sony’s PS4 slides after only one month of hight sales. Sony’s president declares, “I will never change the price of this innovation”.

    Wii U…..well lets just say it will be around for a very long time.

    Funny how 80% of this discussion is a flame war. (P.S. I also agree with John Andalora on a few points about the system, Nintendo, etc. I forgot that it is illegal to have a different opinion.)
