Robin Williams Betrays Nintendo, Looks Forward to Xbox One, Still Hasn’t Seen PS4 or Wii U

Remember all the Nintendo commercials with Robin Williams? He even called his daughter Zelda due to his love for Nintendo’s prominent franchise. Well, today he revealed as part of a Reddit AMA that his next generation choice may be something entirely different.

I’m playing a game called Battlestation Pacific. I’m looking forward to the next Xbox. I can’t imagine the graphics being any better. It will be like these characters are living in your house. I’ll have to be doing duck and cover just to get to the bathroom!

For the WiiU or the PS4, at this point I haven’t seen them yet but I might have to check into the cyber wing at Betty Ford.

Will he change his mind once he sees the Wii U or the PS4, or maybe Williams will call his next son Master Chief?

Below you can check out his commercial for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, filmed together with his daughter Zelda. You’re allowed to shed a tear, as it might very well become a thing of the past, just like the epic beard he sported at the time of the picture displayed at the top of the post.

    I’m sure he will change Zelda’s name to Cortana.

      I don’t think any father wants his daughter to be a nude slut.

      • vicfermino

        Well, if he’s already smart enough to go with an Xbone, I don’t see why not.

    Robin Williams like XB180? Wait what? D:

    • Jason Mounce

      There’s nothing wrong with that….

      But clearly most of us know the Smarter decision would be to get a PS4.

      Wait, so what about all those years when Xbox 360 was the thing to have? Do you remember the 90′s at all when you no matter what you were playing, everyone would say: “Ah! You’re playing Nintendo.” Then, after the launch of the PS2, even when I was playing my Xbox it was “oh! You’re playing PlayStation!” (unless you were in my house then it was “Oh! You’re playing SEGA.”) Well, I’ve grown tired of all this bellyaching of PS4, at the moment, doing better PR-wise than Xbone because Microsoft had their run. Their console was in so many movies, they got a lot of hype from famous music stars. WTH! Really? Everyones gonna gripe? Microsoft just made a slew of bad decisions that everyone isn’t happy about. Just like SEGA had done with the SEGA Saturn, Microsoft is doing for Xbone. People just can’t trust Microsoft, and its by consumers own decision, not the media swaying them because remember, all those un-biased media journalists were in strong support of the Xbox 360 for years AH! Because Xbox Live was the online place to play games. So lets not go on about this: “The Media are being unfair” and “they’re warping everyones minds” because that’s a fallacy. Microsoft had their time to shine while Sony struggled along with their PS outage and struggling sales at first. Sony had to prove to the world that they could be better, and they did and now that everythings cool with the PS3, gamers get to enjoy a solid list of games and now that Sony have pulled out the stops and for the moment seem to be the console of choice, they’ve earned where they are now. They’ve looked at their hand and played it smarter. THIS APPLIES TO EVERYONE THAT WANTS TO WHINE AND CRY! Get your facts straight and then you can gripe legitimately.

    Good for him.

    Haha I remember reading a while ago that he used to play the Day of Defeat mod when it was still a free HL1 modification and that he took a weird kiddie voice to troll players in it , that dude is so awesome xD

  • smashbrolink

    So he wants an X1?
    Good for him.
    That’s a fine choice of system now that Microsoft has removed the majority of things that were wrong with it.

    But it’s not an excuse to say he’s “betrayed” Nintendo.

    It’s called being a multiplatform gamer, people.
    He’ll likely end up owning and playing on all 3 by the end of things.

    The article title is a blatant antagonistic attention grab…

    Robin Williams buying an Xbox One?

    Sony and Nintendo may as well pack it up.

    Saying that Robin Williams’ betrayed Nintendo is like saying that Nintendo owns him. Yes he endorses their Zelda franchise and he owns their console but so what?! He expresses interest in another console and suddenly he’s the equivalent of the biggest douche on earth?! Since when was expressing interest in another console wrong? It’s like saying a gamer peaking interest in another genre outside the standard norm is wrong (Does that even make sense?!)

    Yeah someone’s butthurt here that Robin Williams but it ain’t Nintendo.

      And for some reason I double posted…………what the

  • DarthDiggler

    LOL @ Betrays. Over sensationalize much? :) WOW

  • You are flat out wrong

    Robin Williams is an Xdrone? Very disappointing. Maybe he thinks that due to its design, he can play all his old VHS’ and relive the glory years!

  • Erik Jacobs

    Williams can afford all three consoles, a decent pc and whatever gadgets he wants . What he prefers is his business.

  • Suzaku Kururugi

    The WiiU has been out for like over a year, right? How hasn’t he seen one…

  • Ana Helušić

    American idiot

  • teufel

    I’m sure once that interview was over he quickly called his bank to see if that check cleared for that quote.

    Yeah, I can definitely see Robin Williams drooling over the huge pile of exclusives that MS has such as……well there is Halo and?……oh yeah they have a racing game and a zombie game and?…….oh yeah the Fable franchise and Kinect2 specific items and?

    Dont worry MS, having Robin Williams endorse you totally keeps you relevant and popular with gamers, after all, he has a late night show that is targeting their age bracket…..or maybe not.
    Then again, considering how much non gamer stuff they crammed in their system, this probably makes sense. Now they just need to have a commercial of the elderly yelling at their tv with the One doing what they say.

      Haha my my you were very wrong. Look at the exclusives xbox one has over the ps4 now.. it’s actually looking quite sad for Sony at the moment.

  • Stereotypical_White_Fella

    ps4 is for people that can’t afford xb1
