Who do you think you're fooling, Nintendo? You've got the 20-something manchild market wrapped up, not the hipster trendy 20-something. That's Apple's market.
He's wearing glasses. Obviously he's a HIPSTER.
Or is Warren a HIPSTER? He is drinking coffee and wearing a jacket.
What about a goofy, unfunny shirt makes you a hipster? If that's the case, I'm sure Walmart has racks upon racks of hipster attire.
To my mind, "hipster" describes a clothing/personal style that is incredibly shallow and is very concerned with communicating a type of personality that they want to be instead of what they are.
If I see someone wearing a suit and tie, I make assumptions about them that are probably correct and that they are intending people to make, and it is unpretentious. Same as someone in a t-shirt and shorts, or with facial piercings, or hair dyed blue, or a flaming lips shirt, or whatever. If I see someone wearing coke-bottle glasses and a care bears shirt and their shoes look like they've been intentionally torn apart, I make assumptions about them that are different from their intent and their style is obnoxiously pretentious. That's a hipster.
So now the guys and the actual commercial itself are hipsters?
They look more like gay guys who answered a casting call for 'cool dork'.
Yeah the purple YELLOW SHIRT is as hipster as you can get.
There is no way you could spend a day walking down Bedford Ave in Williamsburg and not immediately know exactly what a hipster is. People aren't making this stuff up.
That's a pretty big controller. Can Nintendo make a controller as painful to use as the Dreamcast controller was?
yeah seriously, it looks about as ergonomic as an atari lynx
The new controller design that ensures Nintendo will develop 99% of the quality games on their own console...three generations running.
I kind of wish the controller was the entire system. A lot of the publicity photos seem to imply that Nintendo wishes this, too. It makes the console itself look like a redundant hunk of plastic that you're forced to purchase with your new HD handheld.
Wii U's marketing so far has been a trainwreck.
If an idea needs this much underlining to show how great it is, it might not be such a great idea after all.
Maybe I'm naive or sentimental after all their antics, but I expect better of Nintendo than ... this. Or at least a more interesting failure.
Oh well, I guess they'll show some games or something soon.
jesus christ if you can sit through this you should be given a medal. 5 for corporate mediocrity.

The only thing I found funny was the idea that Nintendo would have a game intense and exciting enough to have zombie killings on one of their consoles.
I'm confused because Resident Evil 4 was a Gamecube exclusive for a long time.
Mad World, House of the Dead: Overkill, Mortal Kombat Armageddon, and Manhunt 2 all came out for the Wii.
wii bowling, thats all the good ones not counting the wii netflicks
No More Heroes 1 and 2, The Last Story, Xenoblade, Muramasa...
Bonus points for Gorilla thinking that zombie killings automatically equal quality video games.

Hopefully the poster is a hint that they're working on a "Danger:Diabolik!" game.
Even if 20-something douchebag/hipster/nerdcore/manchildren/other derogatory generational branding doesn't buy up this thing, does it matter?Nintendo will pop out some Mario sequels and debut some brand new Pokemon and make another billion dollars.
When you're not mundanely gliding down first person corridors looking to get some headshots on a 13 year old from Alabama, figuring out a physics puzzle to clear a stage in Mario Galaxy is a really nice change of pace.
There's acting like you're playing a video game and then there's this.
Damn, I can't even pronounce the title of this video. It's like someone had a stroke while sending a text message to Alabama.
(as Ling from Kung Pow): Weeee-oooooh *waugh*
This is satire, right?
Oh my God. This is the sort of thing you except to see from an episode of a 90's sitcom written by someone who has never played a video game.
Instead, it was made by an actual video game company. Mind boggling.
Soooooo, where are the games?
We don't like logic in our console hype...get your coat and get outta here.
They really need to just outright ban humor from E3.
Good call on the Big Bang Theory tag. Pure nerd minstrelism.
The amazing thing about this is it came slap bang in the middle of a very tasteful and dignified video of Satoru Iwata talking to camera for 35 minutes in front of some Sumi-e calligraphy.
That, and it appears to be demonstrating how easy it will be for your kids to use their Nintendo to hook up videochats with weird old dudes.
