And he's just thinking of using them now?? Maybe him and the inventor of the internet Al Gore should get together and work on something.

truth for gamers3686d ago

he was trying to be funny thats all, he failed

lsujester3686d ago

Hey, hey, Al Gore did invent the internet. And now he's in the process of single-handedly getting rid of global warming.

Genesis53686d ago

Well can't we send this Mattrick guy to help him.

Andronix3686d ago

I heard Don Mattrick is preparing to sue Sony for patent infringement of its 'Lips' Karoke game which he also invented.

ThanatosDMC3686d ago

Hey, dont make fun of him... he's really cereal guys! (southpark al gore)

Adamalicious3686d ago

Actually I think Al Gore is single-handedly resurrecting global warming - which is something considering that we're in a period of global cooling. I guess a lot of folks forgot about the media freaking out about global warming over a decade ago and then stopping when it kept getting cooler year over year.

KS19853686d ago

forget stopping global warming, did Al Gore find Man-Bear-Pig?

Bubble Buddy3686d ago

Everyone copies but lying isn't the way to go for anybody :/.

whoknew3686d ago

Shut up, we love the mii's, even if the sony fanboys don't. Only because sony was owned at E3. Was so funny BTW. PS3, dead by Xmas!

SlaughterMeister3685d ago

Actually, global cooling was proven wrong back in the early eighties by NASA. Ironically, by the same method that they proved global warming wrong earlier this year.

@ everybody

The world goes through cycles, always has, always will. Al Gore is the new millenium's version of the crazy homeless guy with a sign on his chest.

"REPENT, SINNERS! THE END IS NIGH!"

BattleAxe3685d ago

Ya, sure he invented Avatars. And guess what, I invented the XBOX 360 back in 1991 and I purposely designed it to overheat causing RRoD.

Lew_Ijgee3685d ago

I think it was a Pig-Man-Bear.

SaiyanFury3685d ago

Yeah, Don Mattrick invented avatars. Sure. This is also the same very outspoken person who, at MS's E3 event, told the world, "The Xbox 360 WILL outsell the PlayStation 3 around the world this generation.". Yeah, the guy's a huge blowhard who should blow off. Just as Al Gore invented the internet, and resurrected globull warming, this guy should just blow off. Hard.

spectyre3685d ago (Edited 3685d ago )

Actually I don't think Al is crazy whatsoever. First he heavily invests in companies that provide "carbon credits". Then he puts out a movie to try to get everyone to believe that an increase in carbon, even though it is the tiniest contributor to the greenhouse effect, is responsible for the doom of the planet. People watch Al fly around in his private jet and ride in the back of his limo telling us not to use gas or coal (coal, by the way, is what made the Gores stinking rich) and people fall all over themselves to give him more money.
I think the guy is the reincarnation of P.T. Barnum...."No one ever got rich by over-estimating the intelligence of the general public"

As for the topic: *puts pinky up to the corner of my mouth*(Dr. Evil voice) Riiiiigggghhhhht.

SaiyanFury3685d ago (Edited 3685d ago )

I agree completely, Spectyre. I never called Al Gore an idiot or crazy. I simply maintain that he's an egomaniacal greasebag. :)
