"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

Replacing a great billboard with crap. It should be labeled, "Microsoft and the NSA giving you the shaft." Da Bone.

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

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...
TwilightSparkle  +   571d ago
everyone is dumb till they learn
3-4-5  +   571d ago
ahhh lol I deserve that. :-)

I read it as the billboard company. And I did read the article too. embarrassing.

O well.
rainslacker  +   571d ago
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 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...

Still makes me laugh that she reads those names off with out a second thought!

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...
hop3lessfray  +   571d ago
The article also calls it the "Nintendo X-Box."

BLAKHOODe  +   570d ago
There is nothing wrong with the billboard. The news anchor in the video says the new billboard is for the "Nintendo Xbox".
younglj01  +   571d ago
lmao

Mainstream journalism isn't much better than gaming journalism.

But we all knew that.
Godlovesgamers  +   570d ago
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.

Ahhh haha.... I keed I keed

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.

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.
rainslacker  +   571d ago
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?

Top reporting! Fox News better snatch her up before CNN does.
Hayabusa 117  +   570d ago
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?
silvacrest  +   570d ago
i know, i keep thinking "am i losing my mind" but it clearly does not mention anything regarding nintendo
TheNewSquid  +   570d ago
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.
silvacrest  +   570d ago
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.
