News 12 The Bronx covers a controversial local story and shows off their lack of gaming knowledge.
"She's my Xbox and her name is Sony" seems pretty appropriate here...
Pff, everybody knows that Nintendo is making the PS4, it's Sega the one making the Xbox
So don't change the dizzle, turn it up a little I got a living room full of fine dime brizzles Waiting on the Pizzle, the Dizzle and the Shizzle G's to the bizzack, now ladies here we gizzo.... Drop it like it's hot Drop it like it's hot ;)
Replacing a great billboard with crap. It should be labeled, "Microsoft and the NSA giving you the shaft." Da Bone.
CONFIRMED! Nintendo to buy the Xbox division! Leaked by Bronx News channel.
I love these small reminders. That no matter how dumb I feel sometimes, Its still a long way down.
@Eonjay Son, you haven't seen nothing yet. I present to you: YouTube's comment section http://stupid-youtube-comme...
@tvensky u wot m8
It's just people that grew up with gaming but quit during adulthood or has only had contact with it via relatives and so on, they could also have said the "Atari xbox" in many places in Europe a "playstation" means gaming console just like "Iphone" means for many smartphone, it's the power of branding I recall when I was a kid calling any adhesive tape "scotch" What the add is wasn't really important for the story, just that the strip club add is switched to one with a gaming console...nothing to do with intelligence really
yeah, isn't Atari the one who made the Vita?
Some people are so dumb, they don't know they are dumb, they actually think they are smart. That is how FAR from smart they really are. Those people were in charge of putting this billboard up. People like this, RUN companies........mostly into the ground though. It's stuff like this that makes the rest of the world think " All Americans are stupid" ... How can we argue with them?
Well, the problem isn't with the billboard itself, but with the news outlet that covered it. They didn't even notice that the "Microsoft" in the corner of the billboard meant this was a Microsoft product rather than a Nintendo one.
"they don't know they are dumb" How very fitting that you write this and then flame the billboard company instead of the TV station...
everyone is dumb till they learn
ahhh lol I deserve that. :-) I read it as the billboard company. And I did read the article too. embarrassing. O well.
They're ignorant, not dumb. Ignorance is the lack of knowledge. Dumb is the inability to gain knowledge or not being intelligent. For instance. You were ignorant for thinking that the billboard company put this up. You are not dumb, because you realized your mistake and learned from it. At this time, you are no longer ignorant on the subject at hand. Circle of life and all that.
I don't get it...
OMG Microsoft was trying to take advantage of the strip club billboard situation to spread the word out there on TVs and BOOM nintendo is working with microsoft? lol
Gotta get a Sorny, or maybe a Panaphonics.
Nintendo xbone??XD ROTFLMFAO XDDDD
Wii One (we won)
One 4 U OUYeA!!!!
I think by now its mostly common knowledge considering Xbox has been around since 2001. It takes 1 second to Google this lol if you're not sure. *edit: on the billboard on the bottom right it clearly says Microsoft, just wow facepalm lol
Just shows how great journalism is in todays world. I still can't believe how bad news organizations are becoming about fact checking. Prime example was from one of my local TV stations KTVU when they were reporting on the SF Asiana Plane crash... http://www.youtube.com/watc... Still makes me laugh that she reads those names off with out a second thought!
Speed > Fact checking.
Better to ask forgiveness than spend two seconds on Google
The comments on the URL for the article are pretty funny, too. Good find.
Does the picture show anything? All I see in a Microsoft Xbox One billboard...
you have too watch the video too get the joke...
The article also calls it the "Nintendo X-Box." http://geekparty.com/wp-con...
There is nothing wrong with the billboard. The news anchor in the video says the new billboard is for the "Nintendo Xbox".
Mainstream journalism isn't much better than gaming journalism. But we all knew that.
You must not read many articles here on N4G to say that. Yeah this one is a blunder, but so much so you're going to compare mainstream news journalism to gaming journalism?! What a joke. Gotta try harder. Your own logic can be used against you; your stance is hypocritical.
Can't wait to get my Nintendo Xbox and play Tom Clancy's Call of Honor!
don't you mean Shigeru Clancy's mario of honor?
Wow, that's hilarious! So... Now will Nintendo sue for damaging their image? Ahhh haha.... I keed I keed
Here is the video http://bronx.news12.com/new...
THANK YOU +
Yup no problemo
ROFLAO, So, people wonder why some journalist can't be trusted with unbiased news. For starters this is a fine example of one that didn't even know they was reporting an unrelated company brand with the wrong console.
This shouldn't surprise anyone. were just a week removed from 2Dees & 3Dees. i wish i was there that day because i would have said, '' read that again, and please tell me WHERE THE F**k DO YOU SEE AN APOSTROPHE AFTER THAT D*MN D.
Oh, this strip club is from the future. The year 2020AED to be exact. Thanks guys for a good laugh.
Stupidity in it's purest form. #Speechless
What's all the fuss about?...anyways Nov 22 couldnt come soon enough....nice
Thank you internet for providing my daily dose of stupidity.
Now where in hell does it says NINTENDO XBOX? Or is it just a joke cause I don't get it and I don't see it.
The news agency reporting the story called it the "Nintendo Xbox". The sign itself is fine. That would be a pretty funny gaff if it were on the sign itself though. Would put their Killzone on MS facebook page to shame.
where in the picture does it say Nintendo X-box?
Nintendo did buyout Microsoft last week. So yeah...
I can't wait for that next gen Mario halo crossover lol
Living in the Bronx sucks. Except the zoo.
Cant wait to pick this up and Halo Mario Edition. Thats going to be Game of the Year. Just you watch.
Top reporting! Fox News better snatch her up before CNN does.
But but...I don't get it. The billboard is clearly labelled "Microsoft", with "Xbox One" and "Jump ahead" written on it. Where's the Nintendo Xbox billboard?
i know, i keep thinking "am i losing my mind" but it clearly does not mention anything regarding nintendo
The billboard is correct. The news outlet that covered the story called it the "Nintendo X-Box" in the article, the video, AND the caption to the video.
okay gotcha, i'll read the article next time :)
Thats not the only one, heres another, has Microsofts marketing department been sniffing glue? http://n4g.com/news/1349455...
EDIT: Nevermind just read other comments. That's kinda pointless, and a little misleading.
