So, in essence, according to Conan:

Hot Chicks > PS4 > Xbone

iGAM3R-VIII  +   431d ago

PS4 is the closest thing you can get to girl, and the X1 is the closest thing you can get to a PS4

The best part was when Conan said the X1 was the best only because he saw him second and Major's face after. Though he did say that they edited that part in which is kinda uncalled for so I do feel sorry for him there

Huh? That's quite a strong spin on it. I just figured on the x1 part he was thinking of getting high off the ps4 game. And for ps4 he'd rather go hook up with the hot chicks. But ignore this if you were just joking though

I don't feel sorry for him. He deserved it.

It was a comedy sketch. If Nelson is worried about looking bad to the public because of a comedy sketch, he has some Major Insecurity issues.
YNWA96  +   430d ago
@ chosenone, humourless? Read article, he just explained the edit... not complained. Typical response from you though.... say it...

The whole thing was funny as hell. Laughed from beginning to the end Lol. Larry needs to relax.
TheTwelve  +   430d ago
Nah. Let him get angry. That just adds to the fun.
yeahokchief  +   430d ago
Conan is the best. Nobody else reviews videogames anywhere as good as he does. Most entertaining reviewer ever. All the other dbags just make me angry with their stupid faces. CoCo is a joy to watch.
Veneno  +   430d ago
Yeah if Angry joe can make major nelson look like a douche without editing, then coco should be let off the hook.
THamm  +   430d ago
HAHAHHHAhHA MS employees can't catch a break. All that secret agent mentality. They all forget games are entertainment not some vital need in life

how could they "edit" the face he made, it was all in one shot.
Dir_en_grey  +   430d ago
At first I thought he was gonna respond to the "Kinect can see your blood flow and heart beating" BS spewing to trick the retards that won't know any better.

So did Conan edit the footage so that Major Nelson sounded like a boring pr guy talking about kinect and not games? Wow that really is some power of editing ♡♥♡♥
Doctor_Freeman  +   430d ago
People have got to learn to loosen up and take a joke damn.

Conan says what's on his mind and he actually covered more than alot of the gaming pubs did.

First thing the Sony guy said was its easy to develop for and has DDR 5 ram. Xbox guy said kinect and triggers that rumble..... Lmao. Sums up the next gen for you right there.
WiiUsauce  +   430d ago
actually it was more like hot chicks > Wii U > PS4 > Xbone.
Lwhit6  +   429d ago
One thing we can ALL agree on! Hahaha
TimmyShire  +   431d ago
He must've known that the video was never going to be pro-gaming. It's Conan O'Brien and a lot of jokes at gamers stereotypes. I thought it was funny and took it for what it was, but Mr MS needs to learn to relax.

Though I guess he's had a hard time recently and probably a little defensive.
Blankolf  +   431d ago
^this comment

I think it's understandable his reaction given all that happened latelly.
ZodTheRipper  +   430d ago
Isn't he partially responsible for what happened lately?
vikingland1  +   430d ago
I don't think any one likes to be made fun of. But Conan is a comedian so it's kind of expected.
Ju  +   430d ago
But that was at the show, not after. Or was the pressure already on before the show? Maybe, makes him look like a sore looser, though.
Why o why  +   430d ago
You cant just switch off comedy.......
stage88  +   431d ago
It probably would have been better if he didn't say anything.
dazzrazz  +   431d ago
I can't stand that that Nelson guy, he is so full of PR bullshit !
TrevorPhillips  +   431d ago
What a head on that guy!

Conan is hilarious :)
ThanatosDMC  +   430d ago
He is PR bullshit.
Swiggins  +   430d ago
Not to defend Major Nelson...but he's a PR manager...it's his job.
nix  +   431d ago
when MS heard conan was going to interview someone from Xbox, they probably thought for a long while and said "Major Nelson" and Nelson was probably very very proud and glad that he can impress the mass people... but it came out all wrong.

poor guy.

Loved his reaction after he won in MarioKart. XD

That's why non gamers love nintendo, because anyone can beat their games. No skill required should be their slogan.
WiiUsauce  +   430d ago
There's always been a hard mode in Mario Kart, moron. Try getting 3 gold stars in Mario Kart 7, it's infuriatingly impossible at times. I've never gotten so angry at a game to the point of taking out the cartridge (while the system is still turned on) and throwing it as hard as I can against the wall and screaming and cursing at it lol.

tarbis  +   430d ago
Since he said it. I'll believe it. XD
vakarian75  +   430d ago
I wonder what that "Question" was
InTheLab  +   430d ago
Good old "Major". Always good for a bit of desperation and pettiness.

When someone is making light of you, you either go back at them or laugh it off.

That indie dev took it well. The Crytek guys took it well. Mario got abused the worst and he took it with grace.

This type of behavior exemplifies all that is wrong with MS. Petty and Desperate.
PerryCaravello  +   430d ago
Right. The mario voice actor got his ass reamed for having a talent lol. You don't hear that guy going to twitter...

It's showbiz, man. He's putting on an act for the camera. This old decrepit "major nelson" who only nerds know about, this guy is having an issue lol.

cunnilumpkin  +   430d ago
plus he picked the wii u as the best
PerryCaravello  +   430d ago
He didn't pick wii. He picked "MarioKart8" because it's the "Only game I can win."
SonicRush15  +   430d ago
I laughed so hard when he said specifically the game. I don't know why :P
PerryCaravello  +   430d ago
I KNEW this was going to happen. As soon as you saw that PS4 game appear in that bubble, I knew these geeks at mircosoft would HAVE TO respond with some lame attempt at humor.

This Nelson guy looks HALF DEAD... Why is he the SPOKESMAN for microsoft? Nobody want's to see a 50yr old man talking about anything lol.

Microsoft is lame... "the wonders of editing." The response is so cringe worthy. Yuck..

There is nothing sadder than an old bitter man, shilling for a corporation. It's depressing.

'sigh' il be honest im more of an xbox guy, i have 360 and ps3 il like them both the same, but i play 360 alot more because all my friends play it and i prefer the controller, im finding it so hard to decide which to get xbox one or ps4, but good lord nelson is an idiot he is a joke, conan says sell your console why get it over ps4, nelson: 'we.. we have uh kinect, it uh uh scans your heatbeat tracks your blood' wow is this a joke? nobody cares about your goddamn kinect, we want to PLAY GAMES Not train to become a trained surgeon if i go ps4 i wont be able to talk to my friends and i lose all my achievements but atleast sony actually know what they're talking about and actually care about the gamers
Orionsangel  +   430d ago
Let's face it. You play 360 for your love of Kinect...Oh yeah, no one does!
Orionsangel  +   430d ago
Ah, the wonders of using Kinect to hawk your new product. You got all 3 Kinect fans excited.
jjb1981  +   430d ago
That sh*t is hilarious!
Puppy_Farts  +   430d ago
Yah, better to have taken this in stride. Conan does not give a shit about any of these systems and should not be taken seriously. He should have NOT responded.
JohnS1313  +   430d ago
I bet Major Nelson lied. Nobody at Microsoft tells the truth.
H3ADWOUND81  +   430d ago
For me, the fact major nelson is gutted about it makes it all the funnier..
Magaman  +   430d ago
I guess Conan didn't get the memo, you are not allowed to talk about booth babes or girls in gaming as objects.... Another non-story in gaming news.
Groo  +   430d ago
this article is like schoo in summatime...

assdan  +   430d ago
Well, I wasn't expecting to get any major news or reveals while watching that. I was pretty sure they were going to edit it together to make it as funny as possible.
jeffgoldwin  +   430d ago
In fairness, he made equal parts fun of ps4 as xbone (he declared them both number 1 infront of them). Last, he declared WiiU number 1 but made fun of the Mario voice guy.

Making the headline say xbox one got more hits and fan response from this particular site.
