    Well it seems there is no animosity between the big competitors in the video gaming industry. I recall Sony praising the Switch at some point and now Xbox joins in. I just caught this tweet from Xbox Austria, posting a neat gif congratulating Nintendo on the Switch launch. Not sure how to embedd a tweet in a post, so you have to make do with a simple link.

    I think it's a very professional and mature way of them handling competition :P

    all i see is red bricks..... Of course ms dont care. the switch is not threatening them. If nintendo released a home console more powerful then the nextbox they would not be so happy

    The persons behind the companies are just like you and me, they aren't some elitists like everyone else thinks they are.

    I remember Nintendo having those question forms, asking if you got other consoles other then Nintendo ones.
    MS is also quite the same and so is Sony I believe..

    Beat me to it. But there we go kids, when you get older you realise fanboying over a game console and calling the competing consoles trash is just silly. In the end it's just a fancy box that plays games.

    Any proper gamer has all the consoles from a generation.
    Only poor sods and plebs stick to one platform ;o;

    In all seriousness, gaming is about the games, not silly fights about platforms.

    Good for you. There are plenty of gamers who don't have that kind of money to spare for multiple consoles.

    Saving.
    If not, get a job.
    Wash cars for people, collect old newspapers, help old people with groceries idk.

    There's no excuse for not saving up.

    Minimum wage for a person who's 23+ is ~1500 quid here.
    900 is way below the minimum wage.

    What if those people are students? Surely it isn't their priority to spend all their money for video game consoles.

    Then surely they should set their priority to studying and not gaming ;')

    That's the dumbest thing I heard today.

    Dude, you sound kind of bitter. Students need to game too, but that doesn't mean they have to buy all the consoles.

    There's always free flash games on the Internet.

    Besides, most students are to busy getting piss drunk at student parties anyway.
