With Sony releasing the PS4 on Friday and Microsoft unveiling its Xbox One one week later, fans of each console are flocking to online message boards now more than ever, expressing their love or hatred for either side.
The newest South Park episode does a great job capturing the craziness and ridiculousness of the whole thing. During a heated exchange, Kyle, an Xbox One fan, asks Stan if he’s “on our side.” Stan responds and says he prefers the PS4 controller.
“Stan, the PS4 doesn’t have the seamless transition between games, movies and TV offered by the Xbox One,” Kyle says.
“The PS4 controller has a touch-pad interface, but you never wanted to listen to me, Kyle,” answers Stan. “You had your head so set, because, because that’s how Xbox people are.”
Cartman then consoles Kyle and ends everything with a great one-liner.
“Let these Sony f***s wallow in their limited voice-control functionality,” he says.
Speaking of video games and South Park, this reminds me of one of the all-time great South Park episodes that poked fun at World of Warcraft.
