He did say once that he absolutely hated Sony for how awesome they are.

Is it smart to compare charge capacity of a mobile device vs a home device?

Hint: At home charge capacity isn't as important because I have access to outlets more readily than when I am on the road. Something like the iPad needs a great battery because when I fly to LA, I don't have charge access for 5 hours.

Again, I've told N fans numerous times on other boards. While Nintendo may have the most powerful console out there CURRENTLY, if the other consoles come out and are significantly more powerful you won't be able defend yourselves when Xbots and Sonymites begin to cajole, tease and mock you. However the same goes for everyone else, anonymity is an issue online, but you still don't get to say something and not bear the consequences later on.

What you say simply doesn't drop out of existence 7 days later, so if you've built a reputation then you must be willing to deal with it.

I agree. I haven't been Nintendo crazy fanboy for a while now (I dropped the act), but I am still branded as such. There is only one person to blame for my rep.... that would be me.

The big thing is you admit that you were one, the Dougs and Flores' of the world think that they are just speaking "facts" that we all should just know and agree with.

The funny thing is, that approach might actually be more successful if they were willing to exchange ideas instead of brazenly imposing them upon others. Then instantly going deaf when others speak.

Lol, it has 4x the RAM, and 2x the graphical power.

It's not that much more, but significant for console. When the PS4/720 are released, it will put the Wii U specs to shame. My current gaming PC puts the Wii U to shame 10 fold. So I don't care in all reality.

The RAM, yes (even though it's 1 GB for games, 1 for system software), the graphical power ... no one really knows for sure.

The architecture sounds interesting though, basically a gpu with a cpu hanging off of it, with a large amount of cache. The exact way in which the cpu and gpu communicate won't be known until it's released, but it was designed by Ninty/IBM to eliminate cpu bottlenecking.

If the next ps4/720 want to remain competitive, and they do, they are not coming out with wallet busting consoles again. They can cram more goodies inside by not having the gamepad cost, but admittedly, Nintendo is selling the U at a loss.

It looks like a nice system, and I'm really curious to see the games coming out that aren't rushed ports based on ps3/360 coding.

Flores can definitely add to a conversation, as long as it's about Sony things or non-gaming things. Doug is occasionally okay in pro-Sony conversations as well.

It's going to be huge for the U and it's first party games, that's for sure. Also we will have developers with some interest in releasing AAA titles on it now as well.

Again, back in 2004, technology was at a much different place than it is today. Bluray was expensive, RAM was expensive, etc etc. It's not the case these days. Hell, Sony has the super slim 12GB for 149.99 on the market. So they can definitely beef up the next gen consoles with maintaining a decent price point.

Regardless, the PS4/720 will be more powerful than the Wii U. Just by how much though..

Unhappy that consoles are sub-par? Yes.

It sounds like an awesome TV. I actually think that in a lot of cases most of us are bored at work when we come on here so we all troll to some extent from time to time. We are all also biased about console preferences but it makes perfect sense because we all have cars we prefer, foods we prefer etc.

That's actually the typical 12 year old COD player on 360, but replace the clicking with screaming.

Im oversensitive? LOL...youre the one complaining about my nasty attitude and nasty remarks to which I have not said anything nasty or rude.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 8, 2012 8:22:57 AM PST
You poor thing.

I like this new "Poor Doug, I'm such a victim" thing.

True dat sista, or a person yelling at you in a strange, exotic language. Like French, or Mexican.

the Punk of old...call people names and then say they are the ones being a jerk and insensitive to his feelings...lolz

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 8, 2012 8:29:31 AM PST
Sensitive about what? I can actually have a pleasant conversation with people that don't involve Sony love. None of this stuff bothers me at all, I sure wouldn't you know, change my name to 42% to poke fun at Xbox owners or come into a thread about a console that I don't own or want to tell everyone how bad it is.
