This is one of the "help card" screens you see in Viva Piñata when the game's loading. Cute, Rare. Very cute.
Still funny. :D
MS is getting desperate.
Dominating the market means they're getting desperate? Get over it fanboy, it's funny.
ummm ms owns rare... but it is funny none the less.
in the comment section of the web page this article hails from a guy ask the origins of this joke.
a guy explains the whole deal to him.
i have to watch & listen more carefully, i missed a good laugh when watching the E3 confrence as well.
he explains some of the commentary like the game features real-time weapons change (what?), and that the battles are based on real Japanese battles. At that point a gaint crab shows up (lol)...
i would have loved to have seen the faces of the audience at that moment.
that could have been a M$ game and i would have still made this post.
funny is funny
since we are all in a laughing mood i have to report my mistake on the post above.
i have since corrected it after i read my mistake.
i edited the line about a giant crab showing up...
i at first wrote, "At that point a gaint crap shows up"
if a gaint crap had shown up, the whole audience would have been rolling on the floor.
anyway, i made my self laugh
...did show up. It's called the PS3 launch lineup. Now that's the real joke.
I dont get the joke...??
I don't get it..?
The Joke was that the developer said that the battles in Genji 2 are based off of actual ancient Japanese battles. And then when they are showing the gameplay, you have to fight a Giant Crab and use real weapon changes to flip it over for massive damgage.
Funny stuff. :D
Real time weapon changing!!
I wish the 360 could do that!!
I hate changing weapons and having to reload the entire level.
reason why this was funny at the time was due to Sony's arrogance. They continually dismissed the competition as a minor annoyance and this was their first real opportunity to show if the PS3 was as impressive as they said it was. The result, however, was that Sony's press conference was by far the worst in video game history. It was so completely lackluster, yet both MS and Nintendo put on very impressive shows. In the middle of Sony's pathetic, flailing attempt to promote the PS3, you had the Gengi, historical battles, giant crab, real-time weapon change fiasco. Of course Xbox fanboys have beaten this to death, but at the time I could of sworn I heard the sound of millions of PS fanboys' hearts breaking simultaneously.
Ah man that is classic
Lol! That's funny as hell
That is great, those lines will be remembered in gaming history forever
The reason there is no more E3 is because of Sony. They had such a bad showing and people were talking so they decided to pull out of the event, they provide alot of money for the event, so losing Sony's money made them change E3.
SONY = BAD BUSINESS
BAD BUSINESS EVENTUALLY = CLOSED BUSINESS or JAIL TIME
it made me laugh. Rare has balls and finally they can shoe them off now that they are part of MS.
This is RARE the same people who Made Conker's Bad Fur Day what did you expect from them. I crack a joke on that issue to. What Rare is Doing is helping microsoft Flip Sony over on is Back to attack the Weak spot for Massive Damage.
the realtime weapon change remind me of megaman X on the snes......
XD this is a nasty one hahaah
You guys have a very weird sense of humor. This was pretty retarded and just downright stupid.
They put this in game?
The Sony grill was way funnier and showed a lot more effort and creativity.
The massive damage thing is quite old and they didnt do anything very imaginative.
I rule its LAME! Go find the Sony grill instead way funnier.
360 Owner FTW! lol true though.
meh, I laughed at it. I wanna watch that clip again though.
what a lame joke... for people with I.Q.s of 70 and bellow... RARE what the hell is up with you?? just focus on making great games... I dont care if this joke was for the Wii or PS3 or if RARE was independent and was for the Xbox, what a stupid one...
don't badmouth RARE.. viva pinata is an amazing game and is extremely addicting...
i predict that viva becomes one of the sleeper hits of the 360
MS Dominating console market? :D
Pffft, not even close. MS is more like dominated.
Xbox360 is PS2's biatch. Soon Wii and PS3 will give some whipping too.
And yes, it's desperate to put this kind of propaganda to your games about competitor.
Leaders don't react, or how it was?
Seems like MS is doing everything to make PS3 look bad.
so it actually means somethin wen a console costing around 1/4th of a rival is outselling it? DJ+Lametime+Shadowgamer+Enforc er(of the lies)+Little Jinny+Karibu+PS3FAN+Kingboy=CU LT
Perfect dark zero, attack of the ghoulies, enough said. let epic handle the jokes at least they can back it up.
at the whole massive damage thing... not something for you to be like " MS SUCKS THEY TRY MAKE LOOK PS3 BAD ME EAT MONKEY EVERLAST AXE SPRAY."
