"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

mohuz21120d ago

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?

TheNewSquid1121d ago

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.

jamz41121d ago

"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...

TwilightSparkle1121d ago

everyone is dumb till they learn

3-4-51121d ago

ahhh lol I deserve that. :-)

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

O well.

rainslacker1120d 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

Dlacy13g1121d ago

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!

Better to ask forgiveness than spend two seconds on Google

Alduin1121d ago

The comments on the URL for the article are pretty funny, too. Good find.

BattleTorn1121d ago

Does the picture show anything?

All I see in a Microsoft Xbox One billboard...

younglj011121d ago

hop3lessfray1121d ago

The article also calls it the "Nintendo X-Box."

There is nothing wrong with the billboard. The news anchor in the video says the new billboard is for the "Nintendo Xbox".
