When fanboys attack

I love when fanboys get defensive. That's when they're creativity blossoms. This video shows what happens when rabid Nintendo fans get backed into a corner. It's funny, clever and just a wii bit desperate. I love it. Certainly, there will be those that don't see the humor in it. So, if your inner-child has died, you should turn away now. Otherwise, prepare to laugh at a little fanboy zaniness.

1. ummm okay. I guess that was so stupid I forgot to laigh. LOL

What will they think of next. Luckily us PS fans actually compare the systems and not just steal ideas from songs.

oops i almost forgot to tell you...

developers are leaving the Nintendo area of development for the PS3, or at least the Factor 5 guys did.

2. You like the PS3 and you talk of stealing ideas? And one developer doesn't mean that the Wii is losing support when that one developer had never supported the Wii.

5. Well the Wii is for little kids, So i guess this explains the creation of the video.

6. No developer has yet abandoned the Wii. Ubisoft and others are throwing huge support behind it. The term abandon means to leave, so in order to abandon it, they would either
a) support it with games and then just stop (except for cross platforms) or
b) start making a game, then put it out on a different console laughing at the original console they were programming for

Just because you don't think you will like the tech doesn't mean developers are leaving in droves.

7. You know what, the video has some truth in it... Wii will beat Playstation... Playstation 2 that is, I mean it was a Dual Shock controller wii was "rocking"/"beating". I admit the PS2 wont sell near as many as the Wii does, but thats because Sony has PS3 (with a SIXAXIS not dual shake mind you)... so yeah pretty much whoever made the vid was dumb and was attacking PS2 not the PS3

9. That video is very lame, but you can't stereotype all nintendo fanboys as being immature, because of one loser's attempt at being funny.

I have seen plenty of Sony Fanboy videos that were just as stupid. So are all Sony Fanboys immature because of that? I guess so :P but that is besides the point.

10. in other Wii(diot) news.....

11. Dude, Microdot... you win the thread because of that link.

I think you may have earned yourself another reader rofl.

That was a pretty lame video, felt like a 14yr. old made it. You could have had long hair on the wii thingy, or added in... something, it was just repetitive and boring.

Posted at 5:52AM on Oct 14th 2006 by Aex 0 stars

12. That article is hilarious Microdot.

"I live in houston. a city with a few million people. maybe its different here... i don't know. but the ps3 sold out in seconds. confirmed by gamestop to be completely gone at around noon or so. the wii...... well.... not quite. as of closing tonight, they still had 2 available pre-orders. still no official "we're sold out" announcement. nothing.

is it a case of fanboyism outgrowing the actual "want" for the system? appears so. "


'Fastest sales ever!... Due to extreme lack of goods.' Not exactly difficult to sell out of a system when there are only a handful to go around.

13. "You like the PS3 and you talk of stealing ideas?"
Sigh. Let me say this for the upteenth time:
The Wiimote is NOT the first motion-sensitive controller. They've been around for several consoles for a LONG time.
The patent documentation for the SixAxis controller were filed LONG before the WiiMote was revealed.
The position-sensing system for the WiiMote is NOT new. There is a lightgun for the PC and PS2 that uses the same idea to allow use on non-CRT displays (and 100hz CRTs).

Claiming that either company 'stole' from the other is sheer lunacy.

15. May I remind all of you that this video is at east 8 months old because I was the Network Admin of theodl.com when it was still around. I didnt like his work in any way shape or form, but attempted to show off anyway.
Since those days we moved from that site, and respect the ps3 a little more, enough for me to start flowing in a bit of playstation online news myself...

16. There's a TON of support for Wii at launch because most of the third party games were initially late-cycle GameCube games... which were scrapped for GC and retooled for Wii.

Once third party support dries up again; Wii will become a Nintendo only console.

And yea, Wii-hype hit its peak at E3..also the same time as PS3s lowest point. All that dont matter no more; PS3 marketing is just hitting its stride now.

Oh, Canada EB Games are taking PS3 preorders on monday!!!

17. on the comment of the http://www.wiidiot.com link
every one liked the site and that was immature just like my vid

we are fan boys not fan men

18. All fanboys are inmature, it´s just a matter of grade.
Search the web and you will see bad movies made by Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo fanboys.
Some of us are old enough to know that it´s the games that matters, not the system. All system have great and bad games, and you need all systems to be able to playy all great games.

"I live in houston. a city with a few million people. maybe its different here... i don't know. but the ps3 sold out in seconds. confirmed by gamestop to be completely gone at around noon or so. the wii...... well.... not quite. as of closing tonight, they still had 2 available pre-orders. still no official "we're sold out" announcement. nothing.
is it a case of fanboyism outgrowing the actual "want" for the system? appears so."

I can see into the future...
I see that all released PS3 will be sold in the first 48 hours...
I see...
That not all launch Wii will be sold the first 48 hours...
I see...
That the reason is that Sony are releasing so few systems compared with Nintendo. It will be almost impossible to get a PS3 without preordering while it´s easier to get a Wii, since it exist so many of them.

19. "The patent documentation for the SixAxis controller were filed LONG before the WiiMote was revealed."

If this patent existed for so long and Sony always meant to put it in, why wasn't it a part of the "boomerang" and why wasn't it announced until after Nintendo announced it? Why did third-party developers first hear about it at E3 and why didn't they receive more info and dev-kits until 2 weeks afterwards? Where is the PROOF that this patent exists?

Posted at 12:43PM on Oct 14th 2006 by Sponge 0 stars

20. "why wasn't it a part of the "boomerang""
-- Because nothing was announced for the boomerang except the one or two pictures

"why wasn't it announced until after Nintendo announced it?"
-- Maybe they wanted to surprise people but Nintendo beat them to the punch? I can't say what the tactic was.

"why didn't they receive more info and dev-kits until 2 weeks afterwards?"
-- maybe it wasn't finished enough yet... You honestly think they could have come up with the harware, software and control specs in two weeks? These things take time.

And for your last question, I'd have to go look it up on the patent site, but I have games to play, so I'll let you do that.
