Xbox Evolved Writes: "On last night's NBC's Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien, O' Brien made remarks over the the eBay auction for Xbox 360 Autographed for 1.1 Million dollars." Do you want to fork over 1.1 million dollars?
Hilarious, FaceBox!! haha... that's really funny.
I should have thought of that one :) But what's funnier is that everybody laughs and cheers but basically they just laugh at themselves for allowing a problem to be accepted. If the rest of life was like this there wouldn't be doctors and scientists working on cures for diseases taking our loved ones - and thank God Microsoft doesn't make medical equipment. But hey, let's have people die from Polio and just laugh about it and go swimming instead of doing something about it.
Wow, WTF man? It's not that serious.
then today must be a slow day in the gaming world.
Yeah I don't know for sure if everyone will get that RRoD joke, seems more like an inside joke..does anyone know if this is on Hulu or anythign yet?
the rrod is hardly an inside joke. I can understand people not knowing the term 'rrod' but everyone who plays games knows that 360's have a nasty habit of dying.
you know it could just be referencing the fact that she quit.
I'm not entirely convinced it's a stab at the RROD, you know. I dunno, I don't know enough about Palin but it seems to me to be a bit of a weak RROD joke, but if she was famous for "quitting" anything, it'd be a pretty good political jab. Anyone got any sources on this?
Its a stab at both Sarah Palin, and Microsoft.. In the joke he said "they both like to quit on their supporters" Considering the 360 has cost MS 1+billion= MILLIONS of 'quitting' consoles, all due to the RROD I'm pretty sure its safe to say he was making fun of the issue. Palin=1x quitter xbox360= the 10,000,000x quitter. Its late night TV.. Jokes are not meant to be hard.. BUT maybe for some I guess?.?.?
@infamous You gotta admit thou man, people must really love their console to keep putting up with a problem like thath. I mean, I went through three of them, but I still love my Xbox. Never paid a cent to get it fixed, and they never took longer than a week to get it back to me.
Its not the console, but the games on it. At the end of the day, the 360 is just a platform, just like the PS3 and the Wii. Its Games like Gears and halo that brings people to the table.
that's exactly why i havent bought a 360, i realize that the warranty has been extended and that it doesn't cost a thing to get fixed but i refuse to buy a product that i know will eventually break. It makes zero sense to me, and yes i realize the ps3 has the ylod but that happens to so few, i have had zero problems with my ps3. There's a few games on the 360 i'd like to play, mass effect & kameo, but it's not worth it to me. Besides i have no room in my entertainment center to put a 360. The ps3 towers over my ps2 slim and wii, it's kinda funny actually.
yeah that too but...it goes both ways
LOL. She is quite possibly the dumbest person who ever took office in anything. Let's put it that way. Her resigning was the best thing she could have done for everyone around her. ----------------------------- ------------------------------- ---------- As for Conan.. I have not watched a solid hour of TV in a few years... why would I want to watch TV now when it's mostly advertisements? Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed Conan O Brien, since the mid 90's
President Andrew Jackson couldn't read or write. Just putting it out there.
It just means that particular person is not schooled in such things. :)
I'm tired of hearing that Palin is the dumbest person in the world and has no experience.The fact is that she has done better then the majority of governors they have.For one thing she made sure that the oil companies pay every person a fee for drilling in her state.On top of that the state had money not going bankrupt like a lot of other states.The fact is that the governor of Ill.,Abama good friend is bankrupting the state and is under investigation for a lot of ethics violations but we don't hear about him because he's a democrat and a friend of abama.The only reason she resighned was because of all the made up charges they were making against her and the things they were saying about her kids wich is pathetic because this is the 1st time in politics in the U.S they went after a politician family.They had about 11 charges made against her all by 1 man and every one of them were thrown out.He was so desperate that he even made a charge against her fo a law on the books that's decades old.he charged her with leaving the state without giving her power to the lieuitant governor.The law was made when we didn't even have cell phones,computers,phones and other things.There isn't 1 governer that give his power over when they leave the state for decades now because they could run their state while in another state now with all the progress the privare sector made in electronics.They seen the charges and laughed at him and through it out.By the way he's a big abama supporter. I'm also tired of hearing she doesn't have any experience.She have a lot more then abama.Abama only have about 4 years in politics up intill now.he never even finished 1 term he was elected to.hell over 90% of the time he voted present wich mean he couldn't makeup his mind and people call that a leader.he's just a dumass that had people running a good campaign for him. People better start opening their eyes brfore we are a communist country.The fact is that their is only about 2 to 3 unbias channesls you could get infoemation from.hell on mnbc they are drooling over him.Chris matherw said and i quote "every time i see or hear Abama speak i have a thrill go up and down my leg".This is suppose to be unbias.They even had one reporter that wrote an article that she had a dream that she was sleeping with Abama and she knows that about 60% or more of the women have the same dream and this is what people call unbias.The fact is that every person that disagree with abama radical,socialist and comunist bills are called raceist.abama even made the remark that people that protest him don't know anything.I didn't like Gearge Bush either but if he would have made a ststement like this all the media and people that's for abama now that don't say a damn thing would be calling for his head.The fact is that a lot of things abama is trying to do is against our consitution. The medis doesn't report any negative news about abama.Abama appointed over 30 zarzs.They only had about 3 other president to do this and it were only about 10 all together and that's counting 24 years not a few months like abama.A zar is a job that a president makes up that he could put any one he want to run it without haveing to have them approved.He has 2 of his friends that belonged to a communist part for years and admitts it.One of then is the head of the green jobs,the problem is that he has already admitted he don't know what a green job is.The other is a women that's the head of his healthcare reform.He have another friend that he apointed to a zar job that wrote that every american should only be able to have 1 kid that way we could cut back on our carbon footprint.he also said that people that's born unhealthy or other thing are wrong with them should be steril so they can't have any kids.If it sound like you heard these things before maybe you did because we fought hitler to stop doing the same thing.People need to read abama's book to really understand his hidden agenda.he admitted that his idols and people he looked up to are radical and think like comunist leaders.Her claimed that 1 of his idols were farcon.Farcon said that the white people are the scum of the earth.The man he called his mentar wrote a book on how to turn the U.S into a socialist country without people know it.hell abama said years ago in a speach(it's on tape) that he wants a 1pay system but it would be hard to pass.he claimed that the only way to get it was to pass a bill that look like it'isn't but in a decade it will turn out to be one and that is what he's trying to do now.The fact is that the C.B.O(this is who the goverment suppose to listen to fix the budget" but abamas ignoring them.They said that his healthbill will cost trillions of $s more then abama claim and not save money like he claimed.They also said that sooner are later it we would have a 1 party pay system.They have leaders from canda and england that told abama not to do it because it want work it will only cause the goverment to cut back instead of making healthcare better on people and cause the U.S to just about go bankrupt like them.The fact is that if this bill pass the goverment would decide who will and want receive treatment.hell in england and other countries with the same healthcare abama want isn't giving medicine to people that has cancer and want give certain things to people that's over a certain age. In other words if you have cancer and can't be save or a certain age the goverment want help you or your parents need a hip replacement and they are a certain age the goverment will decide if he could get one or not,it want be you. The fact is that since abama took office he spent more money then George washinton and george w bush combined.He had the goverment take over car industries,finace companies,banks,and other private sector companies and now he want the goverment to take over the healthcare system.the fact is that the only countries that run these things are communist countries,the ones like we use to fight against.The countries that abama want the U.S to be like are turning into what the U.S use to be like before abama took over because it doesn't work.Abama is just a socoalist with a hidden agender.people better start reading the books he wrote before he ran for president and the speches he gave. The fact is that all the people that's for abama want a communist country or don't really understand things or just vote and take up for their party know matter what they do and don't care about the U.S and it's constition and what we stand for.The fact is that i didn't like George Bush and didn't vote for him either time.I think that george bush and Abama will be remember as 2 of the worst president in history,abama will be remember as the 1 who turned the U.S into a communist country if we don't stop him.On the other hand i think that cliton and reagan are 2 of the greatest president we had.
I agree with you 99%.. I owned a xbox 360 at the beginning of this generation, and after 4 RROD, and ruining 7 out of my 10 games I called it quits. My point is if your hardware is a failure why bother making games for it... Personally I don't miss the 360, nor do I miss any of the games with the ONE exception of gears1. As a consumer and someone who cares I just wish people would stop spending hundreds of dollars of their hard earned cash on 'not so great' HARDWARE I'm not flaming here people. I am saying the 360 has quality games, but does not have the hardware to back it up..
Conan is good that is what Hulu and DVR is for so you have no ads. :)
LMFAO! This is too funny. +2 cool points for conan, he ripped on 2 of my most despised things in the world at the same time. palin and rrod.
The 360 crashes & burns. It's common knowledge already. It's not a inside joke. Everyone knows what they are getting into when you vote for a xbox & palin. It's on you. Quit acting like you need to keep a skeleton in the closet for microsoft. That's what makes people angry. Keep it real, the 360 fcks up.
Palin and the 360 also have 1 thing in common: They both fail.
Obama's not exactly lighting the world on fire either. His approval ratings are at around 50%.
Could Conan be thinking of 1 vs 100? Uh no! It's a joke to name what xbox360 is best at. Making people pay for sh1t people already already use for free. Fckn tool boxes. Ha ha ha! Ram Magnums Lives!
It's a stab at the XBOX freezing regularly during a game. Still happens to me.
I am proud that Conan O'Brien supports all Sony fans in the imminent defeat of the Facebox PleaseTweetMe. Conan O'Brien, Late Night Show host at night, droid in the day. Woot woot.
I got that line off The Simpsons who Conan used to write for. Talk about insider comedy. ;)
"Don't you hate it when you go to the bathroom and there's no toilet paper??" The other funny one is when Homer stole Flanders's flowers for his parade float, and then Flanders asked "but did you have to salt the earth so the flowers wouldn't grow back?" Homer: "Heheheheheehehe......yea h" The old Simpsons episodes when Conan wrote for the show were funny as hell. Family guy wouldn't be able to touch them.
RROD doesn't make you disconnect from a game, it completely destroys your system. I'm sure a lot of Americans WISH it just made you quit the game. Nope, it's a complete failure.
...I assume that in the process of the said console being destroyed that the game would eventually disconnect in the process.
A lot of butthurt people here for some reason. It's common knowledge that the 360 suffers from the RROD problem, jeez guys don't take it so personally.
The joke is on the Democrats, not Palin. The Democratic party is destroying itself from within, with this *heatlhcare fiasco and the cap & trade debacle. They're the only ones who think Palin is *dumb, but yet the guy they elected as President has no experience as anything but a community organizer, was *bought and *paid for by the unions and special interest groups. Whose goal is to push nationalized halthcare on a nation that doesn't want it. Do you really believe those are mosly republicans showing up at these town forums?! Think again! Most of them are democrats who voted for Obama. 2010 is fast approaching and a lot of senators and congressmen that are supporting this healthplan are in for a very *rude awakening. The facts are this, most consevatives think Sarah Palin is *anything but stupid. Many democrats that voted for this labor-union punk we have now are becoming increasingly pissed-off with the things he's doing. Telling the American people that they should just "not say anything" if they don't agree with his polices?!! There are people who are so teed off with what's going on right now that that they would happily vote for Sarah Palin. I'm looking forward to the complete destruction of the democratic party. It's happening as I sit here and type this. They are destroying themselves from within. Great news for me, Sarah Palin and all freedom loving consevatives out there. Have a nice day day, everybody. :)
When the Rep won the election and wasted billions on an unjustified war, Hannity and Co., were shouting from the rooftops, "If you don't like it then leave!" Now, they LOST the last election and guess what? When you lose, the other guy calls the shots. You are not supposed to like what they do and that is why you are on seperate "teams". Where is Hannity now? If you don't like it then LEAVE. Millions are uninsured, the market ran unregulated for years and broke our economy. The Reps have done enough damage. Your time is over. BTW, how many Rep senators kids fought in the Iraq war? anyone?
its a good thing, that should have happened along time ago. They say costs will be passed on to consumers, but there are other company's that have already started to abate long ago. these company's will have the lower prices and will get the business. While the polluters try and pass costs on to consumers, they will loose business to the other companies. It will not only cause consumers to be more thoughtful of what they buy and the producers will finally be held accountable for their production process. For companies who already try to be cleaner than their competitors, their prices could actually go down as they sell their excess permits to the other companies. looks like someone has been watching tooo much FOX news.
I don't like it, and how about instead of me *leaving, I just exercise my right to vote, and vote your punks out of office instead. There's something called the right to descent. You don't lose that right just because you lose an election. It didn't stop liberals when Bush got elected and it sure as hell won't stop conservatives now that Obamas in power. I think with enough concerted effort we can make this a one-term presidency for Obama and company. Looks like someone has been watching too much, MSNBC.........
I got my opinion from taking Environmental economics in college. I felt this way after taking this class back in 2005. I learned how it actually worked as opposed to these morons on tv who have no idea what they are talking about.
So Poopface, do you mind if I ask you a question?! Do you work a full-time job? Are you making a equitable income? If you answer yes to either of these questions, I'm sure you can personally offset the costs of rising electricity and fuel costs. The point is that most people who are struggling aren't dragging home 6 figure incomes, and can't afford the costs of skyrocketing energy costs. In other words, the people most severely effected by this will be the *poor, the people Obamas supposed to be representing. I live in Indiana, 98% of the electricity delivered to homes here comes from the burning of coal. There is one supplier for my area. There is no *competition. So if energy costs go up, we're forced to pay it. I realize you and other liberals who will find it easy to make these costs think this is a good thing. Unfortunately, this would make life unbearable for the average struggling American. You might think putting ideology before the people is a great idea, but I assure you. You are in the *minority when it comes to this issue. Cap and trade will never gain mass public acceptance, unless some major changes are made in the bill. I respect your opinion, but taking a class in College doesn't mean that it will work that way in the real world, no offense intended...
