Looking back at the console wars

56 second read


Ah, the good old console wars. Who was going to win, who was going to lose. We still haven’t reached any final conclusion, except for the fact that the Wii is selling tons of consoles compared to it’s HD cousins.

But if you need a reminder on how things were looking to many gamers a while back, we have posted up this old God Mode comic that demonstrates the general outlook that was had by many.

[Thanks Hilton Russel (or is it Russel Hilton?) for the tip]


It’s interesting to see how things have come along and it will be interesting to see how things turn out in the next year or two. It seems like people are becoming more interested in who is going to win this generation in the long run, rather than what we might be seeing next.

    The PS3 is an expensive hooker, who basically shags the same as the cheaper Xbox360 hooker, but the Xbox360 hooker tend to die quickly. You don’t want a dead hooker on your hands, anybody watched Very Bad Things? 😛

    The 360 is the hooker who has aids, there’s a 30% chance you’ll get the disease.

    The PS3 is the hooker who robs you at gunpoint after she’s done with you and makes off with your wallet.

    The Wii is the underage hooker, it’s fun but you don’t want to get caught doing it!

    As for Very Bad Things, man that was a disturbing movie!
