Comment of the Week: A Scientific Experiment
It’s been a crazy week of E3, with lots of news to digest — you can see it all over at Game Front’s E3 channel. The big story, of course, has been the console showdown between Sony and Microsoft, with the Playstation 4 emerging as the consensus winner.
Earlier this week, I summarized the situation in a post: How Sony Won E3 2013. As you might expect, discussion in the comments was vigorous. One poster, “gasmaskangel,” reacted strongly to a statement by former Epic developer Cliffy B, which was included in the article. Check out Cliffy B’s tweets below, then read on for gasmaskangel’s hilarious rebuttal.
“I’ve decided to perform a scientific experiment with regards to Cliffy B’s statements. I simulated the non-existent dude bro idiot by drinking heavily and smashing my head in my head in a car door until I could no longer remember my social security number or the scientific method. Unfortunately, I could still tell the difference between $400 and $500, and read the amazon page that listed CoD ghosts as coming to both 360 and PS3. Therefore I still have no reason to buy an XBone, or if I’m this hypothetical proto-idiot even a PS4.
See, the “core” group that microsoft pissed off are the ones who get worked up about the whole console war thing, Billy McDouchehat who only plays x-box for CoD has no such brand loyalty. He just wants CoD and he doesn’t really care how he gets it. Microsoft is still going to get spanked by this unless they can either win back the “core” gamers or lower the price enough for people who don’t really care as much to buy the xbone over the PS4.”
