"Hey buddy, you know a lot about video games. Which console do you think I should buy?"

"Well, that depends. If you're a more serious gamer you probably want a PS3 or XBox 360, but the next-gen consoles are going to be coming out soon, so you'd be outmoding yourself if you got one of those."

"OK…Isn't the next-gen Nintendo out?"

"Yup, the Wii U. Are you eight years old?"

"No."

"Are you eighty years old?"

"No."

"Would you pay several hundred dollars for a machine that you will only use to play the newest Mario and Zelda titles?"

"No."

"Then don't get the Wii U."

"What about a PC? That way I could always be up to date."

"Sure. You could also waste away under the anxiety of dropping framerates every time a new title is released. Or you could buy a new console-priced video card every year."

"Jeez. You're making this all sound very unappealing."

"Listen, nobody said that trying to have fun was going to be fun."

Wear this shirt: while lecturing your nephews on the majesty of Tie Fighter.

Don't wear this shirt: if you're not ready to pledge your fealty to one console faction.

This shirt tells the world: "Ladies and gentlemen, if I say I'm a geek you will agree."

We call this color: The Future Is A Black Xbox
