Thingamajig's PC Profile

Purely out of interest.

Been computer gaming for as long as i can remember, Started out with the NES, SNES, N64, then moved to PC's.

I'm still a devoted Nintendo fan. They are a clever company - and KNOW what entertainment is, consoles such as the unstable 360 or the bloated PS3 are just miniture computers in my mind, and suffer the same problems as your average computer, lockups, crashes, etc.

A console is a console, Nintendo know this, thats why its sold 3million units.
