The video game console wars explode into song in this "School House Rock" parody!

 


LYRICS:

SIR GAMEBOY:
Back in the 90's when you bought a new system,
It was basically ready to go!
But those days are gone by, so buddy, don't be that guy
You wanna be the first in line, but I say no, no, no, no, no!
They won't have near enough games, no matter how great they seem,
It takes at least a year or two before they're runnin' full steam,
Yes it's a dirty little trick, so you gotta be staunch, kid:
Don't ever buy a console at launch,
I'm bein' serious!
Do not ever buy a console at launch!

THE KID:
But the video game companies promise all these great games and features within the first year!

SIR GAMEBOY:
Sure, just like presidential candidates. They'll say anything to get your vote, the way game companies just want you to buy their console!

THE KID: Didn't you want a new Wii U?

SIR GAMEBOY: More like Pee-Yew!

THE KID: PS4?

SIR GAMEBOY: Oh, give me more!

THE KID: Xbox One?!

SIR GAMEBOY: Xbox done!

THE KID: Ouya?

SIR GAMEBOY: Uhh... what?

The OS'll be a mess, so you gotta be staunch,
Kid, don't ever buy a console at launch, now sing it with me

BOTH: Do not ever buy a console at launch!

SIR GAMEBOY: That's right!
And even if they release a picture perfect device,
You know that 6-to-12 months later they'll be droppin' the price!
Ain't that some crap? It's a trap, so you gotta be staunch, child,
Don't ever buy a console at launch
(Or Apple product)
But don't ever, never, never buy a modern gaming console at launch,
Don't try it, don't you buy that console at launch!
Yeah!
