Check out Kaz Hirai's custom PS3 leaving gift

Not only did Sony throw Kaz a party, but their love stretched to gifting him a custom PS3... (PS Vita, PS3, Sony)

Yeah, I'll take one of those...

Ridge racer!
Rage_S90  +   810d ago
Lame, old, overused.
vividi  +   810d ago
yeah is not even funny anymore
gaffyh  +   810d ago
It wasn't even funny when it first became a stupid meme.
torchic  +   810d ago
lol you N4G folk are soo heartless 0 agrees? he was just trying to be funny :D
SilentNegotiator  +   810d ago
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"

Yeah, people took ten seconds to disagree and say that a joke they made wasn't funny.

Wow, looks like a lot of people forgot to take their Prozac today...either that or the heat is getting to everyone, lol
SilentNegotiator  +   810d ago
@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.
Persistantthug  +   810d ago
I gotta admit.....
It would have been funny if they had actually included a copy of RIDGE RACER.

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!
andibandit  +   810d ago
Guess he can't wait to hook that baby up, and install updates all day

HarryMasonHerpderp  +   811d ago
That is epic, I love Kaz seems like a nice guy.
Solid_Snake37  +   810d ago
Sony did well in promoting him to CEO imo
searchbuzz  +   811d ago
Aww, how lovely :)
r21  +   811d ago
nice looking ps3 but i gotta ask, what the heck's that red thing?
TheGamingArt  +   811d ago
I was wondering the same thing. I can hardly make it out.
Rage_S90  +   810d ago
It looks like another PS3.
faysal  +   810d ago
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...
fr0sty  +   810d ago
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.

It is heartbreaking someone like kaz hirai is leaving SCE :(
Minato-Namikaze  +   811d ago
You know he's getting promoted, not leaving the company?
CaptCalvin  +   810d ago
He is leaving the computer entertainment branch of the company, which is what he said.

You called me stupid so I disagree with you
Afterlife  +   810d ago
No one expects him to multitask between two different jobs.
tarbis  +   810d ago
Congrats on Kaz's promotion. I hope he can turn around the big loss from their T.V. division.
TheBigShamona  +   810d ago
I actually love my sony bravia tv
HammadTheBeast  +   810d ago
Sadly, the quality is good, but it costs at least $200 more than the same tv from another company, like LG.
WetN00dle69  +   810d ago
I prefer LG. Better picture Quality!
ginsunuva  +   810d ago
I don't get what it is.
mochachino  +   810d ago
It will be interesting to see if he can turn Sony around.
Hicken  +   810d ago
My PS3 was also a gift.

Not from Sony, though.
PersonaCat  +   810d ago
When I first saw the red I thought it was a pokeball... Pokeball PS3 for Kaz designed by his rival Miyamoto :p
cliffyboy21  +   810d ago
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

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
