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.
You're the worst.
Why ?! Because he said yoshida didnt take the bucket challenge and decided to donate instead?! Wow Sony fanboys on this site are so insecure
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.
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
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 ;(
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.
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.
A rich company does the challenge instead of giving money and the "poor" company gives money instead of taking the Challenge.
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.
Bobby Kotick doing the Ice bucket challenge http://25.media.tumblr.com/... "I'm so cool I don't even need a bucket"
This is pretty similar to what Charlie Sheen actually did LOL.
Silly Foxtrot everyone knows there's no ice water hell.
I wouls swim in a pool of fake ice and be like yeah, i rule..
No Ratchet? Doesn't count, do it again.
It would've been WAY MORE COOL if it was Jack Tretton.
I miss jack.New guy seems nice enough but he can't replace uncle jacky
How and why are people in love with that guy? Both ps and xbox's new bosses are old skool.. As i mean , they been with their team and working for the boss seat. Both are cool, as was Jack.
Sony made one of their QA guys do it.
QA guys? That's Shawn Layden doing it aswell...the president of Sony Computer Entertainment of America.
Yoshida "No way im pouring a bucket of water on my head!" PR Guys "But Sir, the head of xbox did it, he just released a video" Yoshida "F that im not pourin water on my head, it will get my 5000 dollar suit wet"
Lol, simply gangsta!
Nice just past by that location today while I grabbed some bbq. Hopefully ALS gets the funding it deserves.
That was a cool thing of them to do. I'm glad they have helped raise awareness for ALS.
Now I want to see EA and Activision executives doing this challenge..
was that mr pointy fist from the e3 conferences? glad to see so many people taking part, however this sort of viral public showdown is a little too upfront for me and may make others who recieve it a little uncomfortable. being made aware of a charity is good, but being pressured into participating or donating is bad. i mean i understand the people who want to spread the awareness, but others may not like to hear about it and get forced into things.
