Chris the story obviously reads "The Xbox One vs PS4 1080p debate is an unwinnable war, says Titanfall developer."  And you make a troll thread title claiming that developer said "The console war is unwinnable?"  Nice.......

You shouldn't mock the Australians, they're all upside down in that southern hemisphere and if not for their rituals they'd fall off the earth or be sucked into a counter-clockwise vortex.  Those shrimp they throw on the barbie are animal sacrifices.

Console War is only unwinnable if you are Xbox One.

It seems to be quite simple, people prefer Playstation.

In the last generation 360 came out of the gate first so there wasn't any competition when it launched, PS3 took the whole gen to catch up but got there in the end.

This gen they launched at the same time and we can see what people prefer, Playstation.

I know I bought a 360 and as soon as the PS3 was affordable I got one and my 360 got no more loving. There was nothing that gave me any interest in Xbox One and the whole PS+ ecosystem made me comfortable to buy a PS4 day one.

Ahoy from Australia. The ritual sacrifices were fun today, and I'm so glad I survived for another year, but oh boy the cleanup over the weekend is going to be murder. Praise be to the great snake.

Skylander is worth 2B? Seeing the video I can see why Nintendo passed up on it. Shitty mobile gaming generation....

No one got fired. Making bad decisions is rule numero uno at Nintendo's headquarters.

Great show Jess.


The most deadly animal in Australia and not the rest of the world:  Pantheon Tempertress Jess, bringing the male gender to their knees worldwide.

She will kill Medusa.

"...pantheon of poisonous animals that run their country..."

I'm lost here.  Please explain the reference.

4k looked really good on my primitive I pad screen...

Yes last of us, have to ask to the trophies really glitch iv played couple times and only have a mere 10%

And being a sony fanboy ... 7 million for a console that others *cough* xbox1 users say has no games outsells the console that does have the games

It's not about looks but we are looking at ways to improve the visuals......

Ha! Australia slam.

Saw a couple 4Ks at the Sony store a while back and I gotta admit those fruit baskets and animals did look pretty sharp.

Too bad about the skylanders thing, a Pokemon version would be pretty cool.

Do you know that to be an absolute fact?


That's not cool, making stuff up about people.


That could be libelous.  Can you afford the lawsuit for libeling a public figure?

@Jdzspace Who won the X360-PS3 war? Years after years of fanboy ranting and executive rambling and it's very much 0-0.

@dani_i89  You can see why they passed it up? It looks exactly like everything else that Nintendo makes AND it has a gimmicky little action figure plinth thing. I was surprised they turned it down! Practically made with them in mind.

@ahpuck  Yeah but all they do is replace the bad decision makers with other bad decision makers. Everyone still gets fired in those big corporations. They have enough cannon fodder and what with the economy being a little dodgy still in Japan no shortage of people to move through the ranks.

Sorry Chris.


I meant to say "Great Show Chris."


Sorry.  I'm a busy person and my fingers were typing 100+mph out of habit.

@amdreallyfast  Australia is known (at least across internet social culture, like Reddit) for having an extensive and notorious amount of poisonous native animals. Good Friday is a national public holiday in Australia, as opposed to the USA where I think it is only in some states. He has substituted the Christian holiday with a joke about us worshipping our abundance of poisonous animals :P

@Yami_Vegeta Platypus is one awesome looking aminal, BUT even that sucker is poisonous! You have sharks and box jellyfish in the water, snakes everywhere, dingos, crocs and all kind of animals trying to eat you in Australia. Must be fun!

@Chris_Watters

OMG, the host responds.  When did that start happening?  This is Chris.  He's not the usual host.  


Mr. Watters, you have a talent and intelligence that no other personality on this sight has.  It will pay off exponentially in all areas of life.


What do they call it? ? ? .positive re-enforcement, thoughtfulness, reciprocity, appreciation, not being stuck up, ultra-self-centered, thoughtless  What ever.

@durpdurp1234 @amdreallyfast  I didn't know if it was a political jab, poking fun at most of Australia being wilderness and inhabited primarily with creatures that would eat you if they had the chance, a very much non-politically-correct (but still amusing in a "does not leave this room" sort of way) joke at Aboriginal mythology, or a touch of all three.

It turned out to be the middle one.  I am now one step closer to enlightenment.
