  1. What a True gamer, mean while sony people pretend they are the only system. At least Phil can admit and even praise others hard work.

    Love Xbox and Nintendo, screw apple and sony.

    1. Yoshida is a huge self-admitted Nintendo fan, so I’m not sure where that Sony hate came from. Meanwhile I personally think Spencer’s praise of Nintendo is mostly just a PR stunt, but that’s admittedly just speculation.

            1. You know what he meant. lol

                I think he’s in denial because he’s so obviously very anti-Sony.

                    I must direct you to my conversation with him in this article.

                    He’s definitely in denial about a lot of things. Typical fanboys, though. And so you don’t have to hunt for where this whole thing started, here is a quote to use with the find/search feature on your browser: So we need to know to things is the Homconsole as powerful as the PS4 and how much weaker is the handheld from the PS4?

                    Enjoy the lulz.

                    I was trying to talk decently to the guy but if he’s gonna be a fanboy, why bother? Just call him an Xbox fanboy & a Sony hater & move on. Trying to convince these delusional people otherwise is futile.

            Even if he did say it, hating on one system doesn’t mean he hates Nintendo. I had every past main Nintendo console while also talking shit about how shitty the Wii U was but I guess that means I hate Nintendo if Shuhei talking badly about 3DS erases his love for the other consoles he’s gotten.

                Yeah. Kind of hard to hate the people that are actually responsible for you having a job as CEO of a Sony division!

          1. ||Show me when I have been a hypocrite, otherwise go back to your pathetic Xbot land…||

              1. ||One, I wasn’t even adressing you and two, I never accepted paid online, especially not at its current unknown state and it will depend on many factors if High Command wants higher ranked like me to accept it un a miniscule way and last, why are you still here unless you are another converted troll?…||

            1. *I will only accept High Command’s offer if they have a 50-60% price of the Sonyan ones, or at least offer different options like if you only want online multiplayer then I should only pay for that…||*

              Exposed.

              1. ||Learn the difference between true acceptance and acceptance in general…||

                ||Other than that, things remain to be seen and it doesn’t concern me much either since I mostly get single player weaponry…||

                    1. ||You against Nintendo = Xbot, even if you don’t have one because you are all equally disgusting and corrupt…||

                    2. ||This is exactly one major reason to why the disease known as Xbox and its followers must be obliterated, they standarized this nonsense to begin with after the corrupted Sonyans introduced non-gaming gimmicks to our world…||

                      ||Why do you think more and more accept this filth?…||

                      ||Unfortunately if Nintendo would save gaming again one day, we must semi-accept this path until the infection is sent to oblivion and also improving our own power…||

                      ||I will never accept online fees that are comparable to those 2 if one has to follow that path to keep Nintendo significant…||

            2. Look, this is not a anti console war give it up man! Everybody is entitled to like what ever they please whether it be xbox, playstation or nintendo it’s there choice not some head in the clouds roleplayer! So give it a rest will you, You’re not this quadraxis sure you like metriod but thinking you are that bunch of ones and zeros begs the question of if you’re all there in the head?

              If not you need to get that checked out

              1. ||On this base only Nintendo matters, everything else is irrelevant, especially Xbots…||

                ||You humans are so primitive, everything is 1-0, fortunately not me or the Ing as we belong to the void that has other definitions that cannot be explained by any human numbers…||

      1. That means nothing, he said it was for his kids. Also he cap Wii u as well.
        I want a Tesla, but sadly I’m stuck with a Pt cruiser
        He don’t care, Sony hates Nintendo pc speak a side.

    2. Is that why Yoshida was personally at the switch event in Tokyo? Ignorant blind fanboys is what makes the gaming community absolute cancer and WTF does Apple have anything to with this?
      LOL

      1. To be fair, Sony is always looking at Nintendos doing. Whether you want to call it “admiring,” “respecting,” “acknowledging,” or (i personally believe this is the one) to try to copy what Nintendo is doing. He was there for a reason, whether that reason was beneficial to him, is another story.

          1. Call it what you want to call it. Sony has a track record for copying other companies and always tries to one up Nintendo first and foremost. You might not think its worthwhile but just wait until Sony announces the PS Shift.

            And somehow theyll say theyve had the tech since before Nintendo.

      2. He seemed genuine when he bashed the 3ds too……..oh you mean how the one cheerleading team went to watch the other practice in “bring it on” ….oh no wait, that was so they could spy and steal their moves and ideas. Hmmmm

    3. every console has it’s good and bad points so the way i see it there shouldn’t even be a console war it’s just the fans that make it childish

      for example

      Xbox has amazing internet servers

      Sony also features as a blu ray player with higher def polygon count

      Nintendo counters to nostalgia and enjoyment at an affordable price

      We all have our preferred system of choice but saying Xbot, sonyan or Nintendorks is just retarded cant we all just get along and not be childish ?

      Games are for enjoyment not petty squabbles like this

      It’s time gamers grew the fuck up.

  2. The part he left out was “& secretly we’re working on our tablet as well. We’ll show you ham & eggers our vision of gaming during our Project Scorpio conference at this years E3.” lmao

  3. I don’t care if it’s for PR or not, I far prefer this over the kind of fanwar fueling shit-talk that was between Sega and Nintendo

    1. Internet wasn’t big in the 90s, and most gamers were younger. How would any of us even known of any of the words they said about each other really? Maybe in some commercials they would poke fun, but that’s about it. Nobody in the 90s cared about who had a sega or nintendo, kids just wanted to play on either, and most of the time it seems one friend on the block would have one and another friend would have the other and they would play at each other’s houses. There were no fanboy wars till I’d say the gamecube, ps2, xbox gen.

      1. Partially true. I’m 37 and remember having constant arguments with a sega kid. In the end he folded when sf2 came out. Much better controls on the snes so I gave in and got his parents to buy him one😊

        1. Word I’m almost 33, my friends and I never argued or anyone I knew in school, but I’m sure if happened lol. But I would be willing to bet it’s far more common these days. Are you getting the new SFII? I think I may. It was definitely one of the best games (and turbo of course) on SNES. And in the arcades before SNES too I loved that game haha.

        1. I’ve heard that slogan in recent years on this page but back then I don’t remember it, I do remember a sonic commercial that was making him look cooler than mario or something like that. Was that slogan used in a lot of commercials?

          1. Sega tried to destroy Nintendo in commercials. Not only the “Sega Genesis does what Nintendon’t”, but also the blast processing debacle and etc.

      2. Thats a total lie the sega vs nintendo thing was big and fans were vocal about their fandom….but it was face to face not scattered all over the net

        1. Omega King Kalas Ridley X3 (Greatness Awaits at Nintendo Switch & Sony PlayStation 4! Come join us in the Light of Darkness!!) says:

          So you covered every bit of the world back then & know for a fact it was a big thing? *chuckles* If you want to believe that, okay.

      1. No they don’t. Another wii would mean another casual console that has high sales at first then a big drop, and a HUGE loss of respect and trust from it’s core fans. They can not afford another wii.

        1. Except they had far worse than a wii, they had a wii u with very little sales and a huge drop off, they would be happy for another wii at this point

  4. I’ve been away these days, but my two cents on the Switch:

    1) It’s fate will be depend on how well Nintendo market it. I’m a longtime gamer and Nintendo fan, and I’m still confused if Nintendo will focus “hardcore” fans, or casuals again. I don’t know, too much motion controls in the direct, plus the lack of a traditional control bundled… The Wii and the Wii U have proven that it is impossible to cater both demographies.

    2) When it comes to new games, the only title I’m anticipating is BoTW, which is coming to the Wii U.

    3) When I saw MK8 and Lego City Undercover as titles to be re-released on the Switch, I felt sorry for the Wii U.

    4) I’m on the fence about Skyrim’s and FIFA’s success on the Switch, and, therefore, continuous 3rd party support. No one is going to buy the Switch to play those games as they are available elsewhere. If Nintendo does not money hat 3rd parties this generation, the Switch will be as much adrift as the Wii U used to be.

    Maybe I’m rushing a bit to build some conclusions, but this how I see Switch’s outcome as of today.

    1. You didn’t like Mario or Bomberman? I’m personally more excited for mario than zelda after the trailer. I really can’t think of any other games that are exciting though, the Street Fighter II remake I may get, I’m excited for it but at the same time, it’s not really a game that is gonna help their launch window. It’s a great nod, but now isn’t the time for that haha, they need new games to get people excited about this system. How did the wii u droughts not teach them this? Software sells hardware, but wheres the softwhere? (And where’s the cream filling?) I really hope they don’t cater to casuals again, but I’m worried they will as well. And if they do then I won’t be upset if the switch fails cause how can nintendo not have learned their lesson after two straight casual systems that didn’t fair well (yes, wii had the initial huge sales, but in the end they dropped and wiis sat in closets, and casuals moved on and the gaming community did too, and many haven’t come back). Lego City I give the pass more than MK cause it’s a little older, and a bigger game with more to do, and it probably didn’t sell as well as it should have (although I have no clue how well it sold lol). I loved that game haha. I hope it sells well on switch, cause I would love to play a sequel. Skyrim I feel is to switch what mass effect 3 was to wii u. Both sound good on paper till you think about the fact that skyrim has been out for so long and already has been released again on ps4 and xbone. And mass effect 3 I think had already come out as well, but I know it had the trilogy release for the other systems. So yea there was very little reason to get mass effect 3, and very little reason to get skyrim other than having it on the go. Fifa, I don’t see being too successful cause it sells so well on the other systems especially in europe, and europe aren’t big on nintendo compared to the other two.

      1. Since Super Mario World (2D) and Galaxy 1-2 (3D), I don’t get hyped for a Mario title. I don’t know, I’m kind of tired of it. I also found it strange that Mario will now interact with humans. Well, let’s see how Odissey will shape up.

        I also liked Lego City Undercover a lot, and I think it deserves being multiplat.

        On the late releases on Wii U and Switch: I agree, this strategy is far from being ideal, and ends up hampering a lot Nintendo’s image. Oh, well.

  5. So Xbox Boss just said only 2 games were Good on the Switch…..lol what a shame….Wii U disaster once again.

    1. Wow you’re really bad at basic understanding. He didn’t say anything bad about the console being bad.

  6. Omega King Kalas Ridley X3 (Greatness Awaits at Nintendo Switch & Sony PlayStation 4! Come join us in the Light of Darkness!!) says:

    So much Sony hate up above. Must be mad they are kicking Microsoft & Nintendo’s asses in the video game market. *shrug*

  7. This is awesome. While fanboys think the big three companies are out to kill each other,they’re showing respect for each other and actually like each others platforms. When will the fanboys ever learn?
