"No escape from Reality...”
LOL......


Microsoft utterly blew their big Xbox One reveal and it's done more to sell the Wii U than anything Nintendo has so far.

Microsoft achieved what price cuts weren’t able to do, as it got UK customers to purchase a Wii U.

That is one thing I love about Nintendo - the hardware will last forever - not sure if Wii holds up like the GameCube, N64 etc. - but GameCube and previous are all rock solid decades after their launch - quite amazing

When I moved out of my parents house I basically bought myself a new Wii, but unable to transfer downloaded games across I basically swapped them around. That launch Wii still plays games just as well as it ever did. Pretty surprised considering the low price. I'm sure it'll last another 6 years at least!

I had my wii brick on me after about 2-3 years of use. Nintendo told me it would cost me hundred bucks to repair it. :/ I have very negative feelings about Nintendo's non-handheld consoles.


As for the xbox one, will I get it? No way. I'll probably grab a ps4 if anything at all, otherwise its all about steam!
