No Women at PS4 Reveal?

Chris Lohr: In spite of that satisfaction and the positive outlook for the PS4, Sony has become everyone’s least favorite company of all time. There were no female presenters on stage. Not one, ever. From what I’ve seen on Twitter and Kotaku (the only websites that matter for video game coverage), everyone is outraged. They should be. It’s blatant sexism on Sony’s part. (Industry)

this is a duplicate story. an the dud from kotaku complained about no women then said he didn't notice till it was pointed out.

kotaku has hated Sony since the Home leak. I hope they all get fired.

I was hoping for Siamese twins or better, Dwarfed prostitutes.

Sony, your event was completely disappointing.
Grap  +   1005d ago
when they use women they say they just want too show her body that's sexism. when you don't show women because there is no important women in this industry other than showing her breast. they say sexism. you can't satisfy these arrogant. if there were decent women in this industry who can give us something that's doesn't involve her body am sure sony will give her time at the stage.

Satire - The poorest attempt of comedy.

Well to be fair Sony is a Japanese company and in Japan women are not treated equal to men in the business world.

I work for a big company in America where we deal with alot Japanese clients and the top Japanese CEO's from different companies refused to meet with our CEO here who was a woman.

Eventually we had to higher a male CEO because we were loosing business.

Sony has alot of Japanese investors and it would be an insult to them to have a woman on stage at such an important even.

Satire guys, satire!! :)
Snookies12  +   1007d ago
As I stated above, I don't think a lot of people even realized it was at first. There ARE idiots out there who actually would be mad about this stuff these days... So, at times it's hard to tell what is and what isn't... Lol
TheGameScouts  +   1007d ago
That's true....I suppose it's even funnier then if they take it seriously, right?! :) hahahahaha!!!
BlmThug  +   1005d ago
Society complains so much these days about the most little of things that sometimes it's hard to tell whether it's a genuine complaint or not

whoyouwit04  +   1007d ago
actually there was a black guy there he was on the Bungie team, but you are right Who in the hell would even pay attention to something like that at a next gen console reveal what race or gender someone is was the last thing on my mind all I cared about were the games.

Ummm it's a mans world and women are just visitors? Lol child bearers? Sandwich makers?
They were probably busy on their periods and watching dr oz on how to lose those holiday pounds quickly and safely.

rezzah  +   1005d ago
lol that was funny. A good read.

Ofcourse there weren't any woman at the convention, the sale of humans is illegal in north america.

Besides, their hardware is far too customizable, cost of maintenance too high and they have break downs too often.

Not to mention the last time i stuck my GF in one of those pre-paid shipping boxes to be sent in for repairs the damn FBI was hounding me for months aferwards.

...then again the built in beer coasters and pez dispenser that everyone has been begging for since the PS2 is included.
0pie  +   1005d ago
ok... its a joke right?
KillrateOmega  +   1005d ago

Wow, is this really a genuine criticism of the PS4's unveiling?
shikamaroooo  +   1005d ago
The was a female on Media Molecules presentation, just saying.
WooHooAlex  +   1005d ago
There was a woman present during the Media Molecule tech demo, and I'm pretty sure there were multiple in their opening video.

Games like Dead or Alive are okay in the video game industry, but the second there isn't a woman onstage at a console unveiling, its sexist? Right...
MasterCornholio  +   1005d ago
OMG Sony is sexist


My_Name_BTW_Is_Dante  +   1005d ago
That's because they were all on the rag over at Kotaku.
coolasj  +   1005d ago
Whatever happened to Jade Raymond? Haven't seen her in a while, she was practically a celebrity.
cleverusername  +   1005d ago
No strippers either which is why I REFUSE to buy a PS4!!
Root  +   1005d ago
So I submit something like this and it's "lame", "off topic" or "other"

Yet this gets approved....what the hell
