Not only did Sony throw Kaz a party, but their love stretched to gifting him a custom PS3...
Yeah, I'll take one of those...
Lame, old, overused.
yeah is not even funny anymore
It wasn't even funny when it first became a stupid meme.
lol you N4G folk are soo heartless 0 agrees? he was just trying to be funny :D
@torchic Then he could have said something funny instead. Or at least mildly creative. Like..."They gave him a custom ridge racer, too"....or something. All he did was crap out "Ridge racer!" and nothing else.
im loling at the fact.. that everyone took the time to bomb him for not being funny . . .thats the way it be ... continue on
"im loling at the fact.. that everyone took the time to bomb him for not being funny" Yeah, people took ten seconds to disagree and say that a joke they made wasn't funny. Har-de-har-har.
Wow, looks like a lot of people forgot to take their Prozac today...either that or the heat is getting to everyone, lol
@scenarist and guitar Stop pretending like the responses to a lame "joke" were over the top. One person said the joke wasn't funny, was overused, and old. Another person said it wasn't funny anymore. A third person isn't into old memes. And myself thought he could have at least have been funny with an old meme if he's going to use it (hint: just typing a meme without context....not funny). No outrage, no incivilities, no over-reactions. YOU TWO, however, are "loling" at the "massive" effort put into clicking "disagree" and typing a sentence, and making "prozac" jokes. Who is REALLY over-reacting here?
Like you, I once screamed the ever-so-infamous phrase "Riidge Raacer!!!"....but that only got me an arrow to the knee.
It would have been funny if they had actually included a copy of RIDGE RACER. :P
Here I'll give a crack at some humour Did he also recieve a 599 US dollar signing bonus? At the party, did they have Giant enemy crab, and did they let Kaz attack its weakpoint for massive damage? Also the guy did it wrong... its ridge racer.... RIDGE RACER!
Guess he can't wait to hook that baby up, and install updates all day
I want a leopard print PS3.
Get one then http://compare.ebay.co.uk/l...
Whoa, there are some really awesome skins there. *Proceeds to rub chin hairs*
that's not your chin you sick pervert.
That is epic, I love Kaz seems like a nice guy.
Sony did well in promoting him to CEO imo
Aww, how lovely :)
nice looking ps3 but i gotta ask, what the heck's that red thing?
I was wondering the same thing. I can hardly make it out.
It looks like another PS3.
its the power board at the back. they painted it red and made it stick out rather then having it inside. just like a muscle car when they have the engine come out of the bonnet...
Having taken apart many PS3's, there is no "power board" at the back of the unit. There is a small power supply near where the outlet plugs into the system, which is on the back, but it isn't a board (though it has a board in it) and it does not extend across the entire chassis like you see in this pic. It's likely just cosmetic, perhaps made to look like the engine of a car as you suggested.
yh thats what i ment ( power supply unit ) but said power board lol my bad didnt realise it. if you click on the picture it will enlagre it and you clearly see it is the power supply unit :).
It is heartbreaking someone like kaz hirai is leaving SCE :(
You know he's getting promoted, not leaving the company?
He is leaving the computer entertainment branch of the company, which is what he said.
You called me stupid so I disagree with you
No one expects him to multitask between two different jobs.
Congrats on Kaz's promotion. I hope he can turn around the big loss from their T.V. division.
I actually love my sony bravia tv
Sadly, the quality is good, but it costs at least $200 more than the same tv from another company, like LG.
I prefer LG. Better picture Quality!
I don't get what it is.
It will be interesting to see if he can turn Sony around.
My PS3 was also a gift. Not from Sony, though.
When I first saw the red I thought it was a pokeball... Pokeball PS3 for Kaz designed by his rival Miyamoto :p
i wonder if kaz even kaz plays vid games, he might play gran turismo and some other racing games but thats about it? I always wanted to go to Japan to see what it was like there and see how they live it up ther
Any particular Raaaaceeeer games in mind?
idk im not much of a racer fun i just know that rpg's and racing games are big in japan
Should of come bundled with ridgeeeeeeeeeeee racer!!
What is that thing attached to the PS3 anyway?
Its the YLOD indicator.
it looks like he's supposed to use the ps3 as a mouse pad and the red thing is a wrist-rest either that or a pillow with neck support
Prince room? Sounds DAMN classy!
I am able to see one picture where he's got some flowers. Is that it?
wot eva that thing on the back is, looks well ugly. My scarlet red ps3 on the other hand looks a sexy beast...
