Dear Microsoft: Make Fizzie Your Mario

Hardcore Gamer: Why should Microsoft care about putting a cute, funny face at the forefront of their marketing campaign?

Yes, yes and yes.

This little dude is adorable. He could seriously be this generation's Crash Bandicoot, something that would propel Microsoft into '90s/early '00s Sony territory.

The guy is a cutie..would be a cute mascot. His fangs make him look like a vampire sackboy....but an adorable little vamp still.

This means war seriously.

If you think present day gamers are going to adopt cute mascots like they did Mario, Sonic, and to a lesser extent Crash, you are completely out of touch with modern gamers. The average gamer is like 30 now.

They'd sooner embrace Ghost or Captain Price from COD than some Mario-esq mascot.

In fact they already have, Master Chief, Gordon Freeman, Kratos, Nathan Drake are modern day mascots. Even those will probably fail to resonate with them as much as people like Joel sooner than later.

Console and PC gamers have grown up, the kids have Angry Birds and iphone/android characters as mascots now.

He is certainly a cute little thing. But it would remain to be seen if he becomes as recognizable as Crash.

I'd like to know where the official inspiration came from, to read their answer to this eventual question.

The chars look identical, we all see it, but I'm 99% sure they had other inspirations.

Kinda like how the Xbox Avatar looks like Mii.

Just so you know Fizzie is a bad guy, and a major troll on twitter. Fizzie is awesome though.

@ValKilmer got you, I don't disagree I think Fizzie is great, but XBOX is Master Chief's platform. There is nothing wrong with have secondary mascots, I also think of Delta Squad.

ValKilmer1263d ago

But sometimes bad guys make the best mascots. Just look at The Noid, he ruined pizzas!

There's also the Grinch and the dog burglar from Cookie Crisp cereal. He was a villain for a while.
