Filler Article; E3 is FAR Too Amazing

It’s been a while since I’ve watched any television and frankly, I’ve been missing it. Well, that’s not entirely true, see, I’ve been watching tv ONLINE and I’m actually considering asking the question as to why the concept of “TELEVISION” still exists to this you’re not falling for it are you? Fine fine fine; I was REALLY hoping I could follow through with it a little longer but I can’t. I don’t care about my tv viewing right now and I’m pretty sure NO ONE cares about my tv viewing right now as much as they care about E3. For those of you who don’t know, E3 is the Electronics Entertainment Expo, a really long and convoluted way of saying “It’s a convention center in LA where Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo have their yearly battle to determine the lives of fanboys (and girls) EVERYWHERE.” Last year, Nintendo DEFINITELY won. That’s debatable YES, but overall between Dance Central, the Black Wiimote (I mean Playstation Lollipop, I mean playstation move) Nintendo DEFINITELY won with the 3DS, Kid Icarus, Goldeneye, Skyward Sword and just about everything else they did.

E3 isn’t over just yet, but Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft have all played their hands, and their aces have been revealed; the winner? Well, that’s a little obvious. Nintendo won E3 this year with the Wii U, and yeah yeah, I’m sure everyone has their opinion here but frankly, it’s true. The Wii U won E3 SO FAR and unless Sony or Microsoft reveal that they’ve merged into MicroSony, nothing short of a miracle is going to change that. Also, COME ON! The thing is like an iPad except BETTER and without the unnecessary hygiene jokes.

Speaking of Apple actually! Wasn’t this Monday WWDC? I swear I read somewhere that Apple was doing something with iOS 5 and OSX Lion but I can’t remember where. OH THAT’S RIGHT! IT’S BECAUSE THEY DECIDED TO TRY TO UPSTAGE E3! And I mean that with all the respect in the world; respect to Apple, to Steve Jobs and their continuous flow of devices. Though I’m sure the marketing guys are getting a stern talking to for planning WWDC so close to E3 when most of the electronic world is looking at Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo instead of Apple, but I digress.

The original point of this writing was to point out that Nintendo won thanks to the Wii U, though while I’m on the topic, I’m annoyed at the name. Yeah I get it, U sounds like two pronounced by a three year old, and the Wii U sounds like the sounds I used to make to mimic police cars and ambulances, but still. You have to admit that it’s catchy and while the name probably will be made fun of, the console won’t be. Who am I kidding? OF COURSE it will be!

Well, that was actually terrible. Worst article so far, and I hope that anyone who USED to read these will be back when E3’s over and I’m actually NOT distracted. As always, this has been your Admin, comment, and DO remember! Always look on the BYTE side of life!
