Looking back at the console wars

1 min 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.

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.
