Oh CNN, we have no idea if you’re trying to gap the generations that never tune into your channel or if you’re just doing a Wall Street version of trolling. But what is certain is that you have no real idea how a major, multi-billion industry such as gaming works. Yes, you see the financial potential full well, which is probably why we suddenly have your attention. But as far as actual knowledge goes, you seem to be stuck a mere decade or three away.

NoobFeed News - CNN - 3DS: No Match For iPhone
Sometimes, words can't describe...

Cue their review for the 3DS, coming tomorrow to most of the lucky ones throughout the world. Now, to note just one or two things completely oblivious from this review is so hard to do, I really couldn’t pick. But the ‘hardcore’ gamer at the stock market, who grew up on Halo as he puts it, is puzzled why this clunky old bag is released.

He poses the question if such an ancient technology can stand up against better appliances such as an iPhone or iPad. Will it be successful, he asks. Their tagline even states: "Nintendo 3DS: No match for iPhone." Apparently the biggest news channel on the planet has trouble doing research, as the 3DS stands as the most pre-ordered gaming device to date.

A review so incompatible with our gaming site, not even the coding wants to stick.


So let me offer some ignorant rhetoric in return: How much stock does Apple hold in Time Warner Company and vice versa? Even haters of Nintendo might get a kick out of this video. Let your nerdrage be heard.

  • It baffles me to see how much tradtional media still fail at grasping the video game industry. This is just another example of it, although I stopped reading at 'grew up on Halo'. Isn't that guy like 40?

  • @Degtyarev: His hands certainly look that way. I guess he was a late bloomer.

  • I guess no match for iphone means he was expecting a phone service in 3DS. Sigh......!!!

  • 1. That "retro" design? It looks fu*king awesome. 

    2. "yes it has a stylus, how else are you going to get precision?- i have had many problems with that on my ipod.

    3. Yes, they have cartridges. GUESS WHAT- They have had that for YEARS. I don't see you complaining that Ps3/xBox/wii has Discs.


    and just don't compare them anyways! The DS isn't supposed to be an ipod touch or iphone. And it doesn't seell just because it Nintindo. Remember the Gamboy micro thing they put out? Yah that totally bombed, it was nintendo ...


     >_< don't diss the gameboy :P You will ultimately lose
