Did a 360 just kill it’s controller? And what is he saying?
He killed the “Duke,” aka the big fat Xbox controller.
Well, it looks like the 360 is killing the old Xbox controller to me… Not sure what the significance is, if any. I mean, the Xbox 1′s been dead for years.
The Duck Has Spoken.
I don’t speak Bosnian, but I’d guess its something in the neighborhood of “civil revolution”.
As far out as the references can be in this comic, I never thought I’d see a WW1 reference. Well executed.
VERY well executed. Shocking to see WWI started by a 360 though. xD
The arms race has gone on so long I am glad to see the war started. Though, I guess the arms race IS the war in this analogy.
@Blink: Yeah, especially ’cause that 360 grew to be a medieval king.
He’s saying “Long live the revolution” roughly.
I’m more surprised that the accent on the Z is actually there and not missing.
Nope, you lost me.
My guess is that this is about the 360 prematurely ending the Xbox 1′s lifecycle and triggering the current system war.
Surely the guards & Chauffeur would be revolutionaries themselves?
He’s saying, directly translated, “The revolution lives” the actual meaning could be “long live the revolution” or it could be “let the revolution begin.”
Oh, and it’s not Bosnian, it’s Serbian. The languages might be near identical but the ethnicity is not and one doesn’t like being mistaken for the other.
Maybe it’s got something to do with the ‘Xbox Originals’ on the marketplace taking attention away from the 360 playing it’s own games.
Lol, it looks like its the same 360 that blew up the “club d’elite” (where all the 360′s elite were) in that other comic. Nice WW1 ref
Is that a PlayStation controller with the Duke?
Lol @ Archduke Ferdinand V.S. the Black Hand.
What Wiggy said. Its sort of a flash back.
What’s all this translating about? It means the same as “Viva la révolution!”.
It’s a recurring theme:
No, it’s just the smaller version of the Xbox controller.
It looks one of the original Xbox Controller-S things. The smaller version of the original controller.
I think it’s basically saying that Microsoft killed off the original Xbox very swiftly as a very conscious act with the 360, and more or less cut off supporting the system altogether.
It’s an Xbox S-controller.
its a small xbox controller
People who don’t get the WW I referance should really read up on history.
I like that the assassin is being taken away by Elites. Nice touch.
Even not knowing Serbian I would have guessed Long Live the Revolution, because that’s what everyone says before assassinating someone, regardless of languages. Normally it’s Viva la Revolucion
also it’s too wide and curved to be a Controller S, it’s the original controller.
I think that the message trying to be conveyed here is that the Xbox originals take up HDD space, which is provided by the Elite, giving another reason to get an Elite and get rid of your old 360 (which I am sure the original 360 doesn’t enjoy). Even more-so if the 360 that shot the XBox controller was an arcade version with no HDD. The take over of the elite was referenced previously in these comics.
I saw it coming from the first panel! Brilliant play on Archduke Ferdinand!
would have been a nice touch if the 360 that killed “the duke” was an xbox elite for a black hand reference
unless of course if there was a reason for having the elites take him away that flew over my head.
