Latest South Park episode continues PS4/XB1 war storyline with Steve Ballmer and Bill Gates

Last week's episode of South Park was the first part of a storyline where the kids get involved in the current PS4-Xbox One console war, with some "Game of Thrones" and Black Friday parody thrown in for good measure. Wednesday night saw the continuation of that plot as the youth of South Park continue to be split in two over what next generation game console they should buy.

The episode, which can now be viewed on the South Park Studios site (and is definitely NSFW) also features fictional appearances from Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and chairman Bill Gates as they both get involved in this escalating battle. We won't spoil what roles either men have to play in this episode but they are pretty major.

There's all sorts of other stuff that happens in this new installment, and the humor gets pretty dark even for South Park standards at times. The ending leaves things open for a third part of this storyline ... maybe.

This is not the first time Gates has appeared on South Park. He appears briefly in the feature film South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut as he deals with a rather angry person over his views on Windows 98.

I dont understand the dick jokes, there aren't that many. And now I don't get whats the point of the Japanese Princess now.

Kalint said,
I get the Daenerys reference, but then Kenny turns into a Japanese Princess. So Kenny is Peach now?

Basically. It was funny because it was so random. But unfortunatly overall this episode wasnt that good. The previous one was a lot of fun but this was more of the same. Especially the dick jokes are getting too repetitive.

Again with the wiener complaints. I've seen maybe a total of 4 wieners tops while watching game of thrones (I watched seasons 1 to 3 back to back while on sick leave). There are tons of boobies in nearly every episode, and hardly ever any male nudity. They wasted so much of the episode on a non existent complaint.

In comparison, the HBO show OZ had about 1000x the wiener that GoT had =.=

Not really. It just felt like a joke that kept falling flat over and over between 2 episodes, especially in the second episode.

But that's South Park, take a tiny (usually) senseless thing or item and blow it way out of proportions

I see what you did there...

"This is not the first time Gates has appeared on South Park. He appears briefly in the feature film South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut as he deals with a rather angry person over his views on Windows 98."

Things never change...

Bill Gates didnt' deal with an angry person n the movie He was killed; the army didn't like a blue screen in Windows 98 when they where planning the invasion of Canada. That was awesome.

Awww man, Mr.Gates isn't the nice guy people thought? Ballmer suffers a cruel fate indeed. That's South Park alright!
It's great that they're making this a trilogy of episodes though and I wouldn't mind getting stuff for 96% off either . I'm sure people would really kill for that too.
