Dude get a new set of friends those kids are losers. Invite some girls to play they love nintendo, and once someone says wii u is not a game console I don't see the value in any further interaction.

Move on and avoid the subject. I don't think them being stupid about one thing (assuming it's just this that's bothers you mostly) is worth finding new freinds (I mean replacing) over. So in conclusion: this.

B)Just laugh it off and change the subject.

Your choice, really.

Yes because having differnces over something as trvial as games is a good idea.

How about joining more student groups or rush a frat. Your always going to have people that don't like Nintendo of video games in general.

WAT!

Well, your first red flag is that your friend has an Xbox One. While this doesn't prove anything, it's a sign, for sure.
Your second warning sign is that they're playing Titanfall on their Xbox One (rather than on a 360, which they likely had before they had an Xbox One.) If they got their new system for Titanfall, then this proves that they don't know when a console is worth something, in the first place, as they just paid something close to $600 for one game.
Your third warning sigh is that he used the term "real console." This is a classic indicator that someone is a waste of time to talk to. If you think there's really such a classification as "REAL" anything (most notably "REAL metal" and "REAL hardcore gamer"), then there's no point trying to explain anything. You've made up your mind on fanboyism, and nothing will ever change that.

After these three, you should just stop talking to this person for about a decade and see if they've wised up. Most likely, they won't, but it's always nice to give them a second chance and hope that they grow up.

Mind you, I'm not saying "ditch your friends." They're your friends! That'd be a douchey thing to do! Instead, you should just avoid anything Nintendo-related when you're around them, and if it does come up, don't let it get to you. Ignore their rebuttal, as it's most likely illogical nonsense, to begin with.

I smile politely, say "No thanks" when they offer me a Watchtower, and if they ask "May we bless your house?" I always accept because what could it hurt, ya know?

@UGXWolf Well, yeah, he did have a 360 and still does. He even has Call of Duty Ghosts on both platforms because none of his friends has an Xbox One yet, so he plays with them on the 360.

Backwards compatibility is usually another thing that I get into debates with them on. To them, backwards compatibility doesn't matter because they're rereleasing some games (Last of Us and Tomb Raider, for example) on the PS4/One. I point out that why not just put the hardware in to be able to do backwards compatibility and it goes to how "The Wii didn't have any games worth playing for backwards compatibility to mean anything." Whatever, though. They can pay $60 for a game they bought 5 months ago and I'll just pop in my old disks as opposed to setting up the old system again or having a billion cords and cables everywhere.

Lol, mormons.

Again, if they don't realize they're being ripped off, there's no point explaining it to them. Nintendo's awesome for making durable systems that don't go out of their way to eat more money out of your wallet than is necessary. I love this approach, but some people may just prefer to get the game again, though I have no idea why they would.

Also, Double Dash, Melee, Sunshine, and Windwaker are all sitting on a shelf somewhere laughing at these guys for saying that the backwards compatibility doesn't get used.

Buy a 1 pound bag of these bad boys, set it out in front of them the next time you are all gaming and say, "here I got you some candy". Sugar-free gummy bears have the same effect on the stomach as a strong laxative, and if they eat more than a handful I guarantee you they'll be on the toilet for the next three hours. Then you can laugh quietly to yourself while you enjoy some great Nintendo games

read this excellent review! It's hilarious to read on it's own, should be great for any morons.

If this wasn't so gosh darn expensive. I would be all over this!

Was Mariobro4. No, I'm not taking off my backpack...it's important.

This thread isn't about Mormons, and the Watchtower is a Jehovah's Witness pamphlet.

Anyways, glad my diarrhea inducing gummy bears idea is so popular It's definitely worth a few laughs guys!

Oh good call. I often get the people who sell religion door to door confused. Thanks for pointing that out.

In the case of religious visitors, just invite them to join you in your crusade to find and embrace the dark forces.

One of the things that turned me off of first person shooters in the first place, I miss the days when FPS games were more fantasy oriented and arcade-like, before they became the not so subtle tools of the NRA and military recruiters (get em while they're young, it worked for the tobacco industry).

Next time they say Nintendo is not a real console, I would just say - that's not what your mom said last night! (or sister)

Joking aside, best way to do it is fact check'em.

For example, ask what the X1 or PS4 can do that the wii u cannot. When they say you can watch blu-ray movies, upload videos, watch youtube, connect to facebook, etc., you conclude that none of that has anything to do with gaming. Therefore Nintendo IS not only a gaming console, it's a DEDICATED GAMING CONSOLE.

Secondly...Avatars, motion sports games, 2nd screen use, additional controller types, all were Nintendo innovations that the "big" two keep borrowing and copying. The FACTS are that PS has had the same crappy controller design since the first one launched, (way too small for my hands and uncomfortable still), there motion controller went no where, MS Kinect was a fail, I don't know anyone who uses it.

Gaming wise, even their games are getting stale, they keep pumping out "realistic" driving simulators that are quite honestly not fun at all really. The point of a "video game" is to be placed in a fantasy or imaginary world where real world physics don't apply. Would you rather have a racing that you can drive up walls, underwater, in the air, or a game that you basically just drive on a road and hitting another driver or wall stops you dead in your tracks.

I think your friend has already made up his mind which company he favors if he purchases a new system just to play a game he could get on one he already owns...and gets it for the older system anyway. I would say to just brush it off.
