if anything, Nintendo is far from doomed, if they sell the same amount of em as they did with the Wii, they will win next gen in sales too.

Yes, as far as I know they updated it late in the PS3's cycle. I don't use my PS3 to game all that much but I believe it has that feature now.

That's not entirely true. I have made fun of him not because of his console preference, but because he's an a-hole plain and simple. Now I don't even pay attention to him because he's been on ignore for months. The only time I take notice of his presence is because other people talk about him, which they shouldn't bother doing. I don't even feel tempted to click on his posts anymore because he really doesn't say anything of value.

After 16-17 years on the Internet I really don't need to see more posts from immature trolls. All this same line of thinking applies to McLame and his sock puppets too but I need to put them on ignore. I've been meaning to get around to that.

You can just get a 20 ft extension cord instead.

I plan on hooking up the Nintablet to a giant battery pack like in Ghostbusters so I can play darn near forever.

Oh? Do you know the manufacturer's brand? Is it Nyko?

There is a new battery coming out that has double the capacity. 10 hours per charge, the battery is easy for the end user to replace, Just simple unscrew panel on the controller, replace battery.

Keller, serious question....I plan on getting the Panasonic VIERA TC-P65VT50 65-Inch 1080p Full HD 3D Plasma TV (2012 Model) is that the one you have?

This is exactly why no ONE of the three is the superior platform. In order to be complete as a Gamer, you need the other two thirds (or three quarter if you include PC).

If you seek to have a preference, yet be unbiased and be one of the "Master Race" you need all three (Four).

PS3, X360, Wii/Wii U (and PC) are all parts of a whole.

Let's start with Wii -

Cons: No HD, graphically weak, lacked certain features the others had as standard.
Pros: Nintendo first party, introduced motion control to the mainstream.

Xbox 360 -

Cons: Rapidly declining exclusive count, paying for Xbox Live.
Pros: Could play music during gaming, Exclusive or timed DLC.

PS3 -

Cons: Lacks DLC sometimes, cannot "DJ and play" and at one time did not support cross game chat.
Pros:Blu Ray playback, Free online, PS+

PC -

Cons: Less support, More complicated/cumbersome at times.
Pros: Graphically superior to the above, cheaper games.

Wii U -

Cons: No Blu Ray playback, No GC backward compatibility.
Pros: Second window into gaming world, Nintendo first party, Wii BC.

In order to have it all, you need it all. The title "Master Race" belongs to the multiplatform/console gamer.They all have their respective uses and places in everyone's setup, if you refuse to see that then you have rightfully earned your respective title of Nintendrone, Sonymite, Xbot, PC Elitist.

And must deal with the ramifications involved.

Maybe, but if so you brought it on yourself.

Major difference Flores, I don't cry about being picked on. When I troll, I own up to it and accept the backlash. Only one of us is playing victim. You and Douglas are not victims, nor am I.

And stop comparing handheld sales to console sales.

Go for it. I hate Donnie just as much as Douglas. He is a waste as well. So is Holly. I treat all morons like morons. But more to the point, why complain when you can fix the problem. Stop doing stupid crap like saying Nintendo games are rehashes. Stop comparing mobile devices to home devices, etc. Stop viewing the forums as a competition and view it as a place to discuss gaming.

Steve Xander says:
Really? I heard that a Nintendo rep claimed the Wii U is 20x more powerful the Wii, but I haven't heard anything about it being that much more strong than the PS3.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 8, 2012 9:35:44 AM PST
No it's not. Nobody is picking on anybody here. Don't do the victim thing, it's silly.

I can give you a list of at least a dozen non-Sony fanboys that perfectly fit your 3 points (including, sometimes, yourself too)

But, predicltably, only Sonymites get shitted on.

Usually night time after 10pm Central or Sundays.

Case in point. You shouldn't need a list. As a 'gamer' you should be able to find plenty of things to love about the ps3, 360 and Wii. You should also be able to find plenty of things you don't like about the ps3, 360 and Wii.

what do you want me to give credit to? give me a list and I will tell you agree or disagree. I dont think I have ever posted about the 3ds being a failure. What would that be based on? If the question was if I believe the 3ds is better (hardware) than the Vita the answer is no. The WiiU is a PS3.5 and you know it as you made it clear yourself several times. But since it was you its ok to say those things about Nintendo.

LMAO. No, just no. He gets trampled because;

1) He is overly annoying in his posting habits
2) Constantly gives Sony credit/justification no matter what the story is
3) Never ever gives the competition any credit

As for the sorry a** Sonymites are picked on.... try being a Nintendo fan. How many times this week have you bashed Nintendo for 'respins?' How many times this week has Douglas said the U is last generation? How many times did you and Douglas post about the 3DS being a failure at launch? How many times did you guys post the end was 'nigh' for Nintendo? The list goes on and on. The fact of the matter is people who act like morons get treated like morons. If you and Douglas don't want to be treated like morons, stop acting like one*.

*see comparing a home device charge capacity to a protable device for details
