PlayStation Takes the Ice Bucket Challenge

PlayStation - PlayStation, at our San Mateo HQ, has accepted the Ice Bucket Challenge. We’re calling out Bobby Kotick from Activision, Tony Bartel of GameStop, and Jim Ryan from PlayStation Europe.

PHIL nominated Yoshida, he didn't do it, he donated but no bucket. It's probably a cultural thing.

Ripsta7th1214d ago

Why ?! Because he said yoshida didnt take the bucket challenge and decided to donate instead?! Wow Sony fanboys on this site are so insecure

WeAreLegion1214d ago

Because even when PlayStation guys do something right, he has to find a fault with them. It's ridiculous. He criticizes Sony for everything, even when it's completely unwarranted. Shuhei Yoshida could give all his money to AIDS research and mrpsychoticstalker would try to convince us he was a monster. It's ridiculous. He does this every single time. By the way, I'm not a Sony fanboy. I'm a gamer. We DO exist, you know.

matrixman921214d ago

but even when Phil Spencer did it, people in the comments were saying stuff like "He should put this time into selling more consoles". There is not escaping fanboy stupidity, no matter what side

WeAreLegion1214d ago

Oh, I totally agree. I think Phil is great for doing this. Same with these guys. So tired of fanboys.

Then when you put facts. The insecure kids dislike your comment ;(

Silly gameAr1214d ago

I guess Yoshida didn't feel the need to do the ice bucket challenge for the positive publicity. He knew donating would be more effective for the cause.

hkgamer1214d ago

no. donating and doing the challenge is more effective.

however, this is not a global charity as far as i am concerned.

also i presume most people has a few charities they like, they prefer to spend what they feel on those and if people publically call out to others to help donate and pass the message then they may not like it and feel forced to donate to others.

i dont know, i am a little biased on charity stuff.

Jesus, lighten up ladies. He's got one bubble. No need to get worked up over one comment. On topic, bucket or no bucket it's good to see so many people coming together for a good cause.

Rimeskeem1214d ago

A rich company does the challenge instead of giving money and the "poor" company gives money instead of taking the Challenge.

hkgamer1214d ago

probably believed that other charity deserves more attention hence the lack of particpation.

you also have to understand that this is a charity that only benefits americans.

It would've been WAY MORE COOL if it was Jack Tretton.

DVS-Zev1214d ago

OfficerDewey1214d ago

maniacmayhem1214d ago
