These parents tricked their kids into setting the table. When the kids would go to get the plates, they opened the door, to find such a wonderful surprise
thats a way better way to give a present out then putting it under the tree....I'm gonna try doing this next year...
THE parents should be reported, being so cruel as to buy the kids
a PLATE WARMER for Christmas,well it will be once its on for 15-20 mins
ho ho ho!!!
That's how I felt when I got my NES.
That video is a classic. And that was pretty much the same as my reaction when I unwrapped my NES. I believe the term "joygasm" sums it up. :)
"they opened the door, to find such a wonderful surprise..."
Let me guess...RRoD?
and if the parent got what the kids wanted, I'm happy for them, May your 360 Never RROD, and I mean this in the most sincere way
Come on, I'd pay any dollar amount to see my kids that excited. Seriously. Sure, I suppose it could RRoD... so what.
NO!! damit mom and dad! why? there are no games on that damn system! i dont wanna watch blu ray movies!!
and didn't live in your mommy's basement you might shut your BS spewing mouth.
OMG OMG OMG AHHHHHHHH the 360 sucks! I want my cherry cobbler. That's what the kid in the robe said. I think he wants a PS3 instead.
You too, record a video of you offering a video game or a console for your kids and you will be in the video games news...
i don't want to be insulting, but there's maybe more interesting to know than parents gifting video games to their kid.
You could have just as easily have skipped this story, but you didn't.
I think you miss the point. It's not gaming news, but I look at it as a reminder of what video games are all about. I'm sure all of us were that surprised and excited over a new console at some point. It's sad how some of you fanboys still try to turn this into a brawl. It should be about the love of video games, not what YOU think is superior while trying to shove your narrow-minded opinion down everyone's throats.
they can heat their food, and have it nice and hot on the table. They just plug in their 360, and let it get the RROD, and they can put their food on cuz its gonna be nice and toasty.
they didn't get a box with a phonebook in it.
you know when you want to trick people, so you put a brick in their present.....well...i have a new idea. :)
And if they got a ps3 a nice dinner would go with it. just throw it in the top and grill me up some steak george forman style.
After having watched blu-ray movies on their PS3 all of christmas day, the kids were growing awfully tired and ran downstairs to ask their dad:
-"Daddy! Daddy! Can we have a console that you can play games on? Pleeease!?"
-"Yes, children. But you'll have to wait until after dinner."
I thought it was funny even though it was a little corny, still I like the one kid jumping up and down screaming NO WAY!, NO WAY!
edit: #3.1 mighty douche.....and that vid was 10x better and right on cue after Covenant's comments, ha ha good one!
this just reminds me of happier times when we all were just happy to play games on any system, now its "ha ha RROD" every other comment, aahhh well lifes a b!tch, "oh how low we have fallen"= JOY
How true Jokes on You. RROD everyother thread and your own beloved "Sonykids" outbursts in evey other.
Kettle meet pot
so it doesn't apply to normal sony fans who simply prefer the ps3 or sony products but don't spend their time spreading bs and hate towards everything else, so I simply use that word instead of "fanboy" to point out individuals who fit that label, but if you look at my comments I'M ALWAYS ON TOPIC BASED ON THE NEWS THREAD or simply responding to a claim/statement another member made, as you can see above some sonykids have nothing informative (good or bad critcism) to add to the subject by discussing the vid, they simply want to scream "ha ha their 360 will get RROD!", type comments, its fine because its so old news that I don't even think it really bothers 360 fans anymore, its more like just something you learn to tolerate 'cause you have to, you know kind of like that "your momma joke" that your 7 yr nephew learned and now you've heard it waaaay too many times, so you just listen and smile but really you stop paying attention when he said "Hey, you want to hear a joke", you know whats coming but he's a kid so you say "Yeah suuure" and keep watching the TV basicly ignoring him, then when he taps you on the shoulder and you realize the joke is over, you let out a little laugh, and say "ha ha that was a good one", then back to watching TV, lmfao, yep thats pretty much my reaction to the RROD stuff now, so its no big deal, I was just pointing out that RROD is all these kids know, and me using the word "sonykid" when reffering to those individuals is not the same as how they spew their off topic BS every thread, so if you cant see the BIG difference its probably just because you fit the *description above*=
what you just saw is the average closeknit family that probably cant afford a ps3 or blu-ray movies. I wonder if they own a hdtv?
this is where sony will hurt, everyone is feeling a pinch this year with the housing market mumbo jumbo and forclosures and right now the most expensive console will be behind for a while.
this reminds me when I got my nintendo as well, it was so unexpected..those were the days
If you don't like the title of an article don't come in and post. since u have nothing to say why say anything at all?
u sly dogs lol
That was nice. Great job by the parents and what a nice surprise for the kids.
Their first game system. How sweet.
My brother did something like that awhile back. when I told him to go get Rock Band, he came home and said they were sold out. I was like "okay" but then he said "your mom is calling you to go do something for her" and right when I was walking over there to see what she wanted, there was the box right by the door. I'm pretty sure I lost all emotion to care or excitement ;o but was a nice gesture.
How is this "news"?
It isn't news. And it isn't in the news category. It is a video. And it's in the video category. So why are you complaining?
hopefully their parents lets them play m rated games
That would be an irresponsible act by the parents as none of these kids are of 17 years of age or older.Now if these kids are mature enough to understand the difference between virtual reality and reality then I would agree but since we don't know the level of maturity that these kids posses I cant agree with your comment,otherwise Good old Jack Thompson will never leave the Gaming community alone.
It was a nice video; stop being so cynical and bitter.
Why am I so hoping they have no internet access!!!!????
thems kids are annoying.
l would make a joke about RROD but it too easy.
the 360 is rather festive. With its flashing green and red lights. The only thing is when the red ones turn on, they tend to stay on. I think MS is trying to come up with a fix for it. :\
Because the RRoD isn't a funny joke, or funny period. Its old and behind us. I don't hear anyone talking about Sony's horrible lasers.
I talk about the cheap Sony drive problems with the PS1 and PS2 all the time. But people seem to easily forget the Sony blunders of the past.
I hope these kids enjoy their new 360.
The problem of the ps2 laser problem is somewhere around 5% while the 360 problem is somewhere between 20-33%. Besides, sony fixed the problem already while there's still reports that the new falcon rrod.
Now those are smart, intelligent parents for choosing Xbox 360.
To everyone that criticized the video grow up. This is about parents treating their kids to what they wanted. YOUR OPINIONS MEAN NOTHING TO THIS FAMILY. And as for the rest of us we find it heart warming. This has nothing to do with console wars, so get over it and pass the story if you hate on the 360.
If it was a Sony PS3.
the system with the best games and no laggy POS online.
cuz they were really craving a blu-ray player with no games and sh*t online service. Thats every kids Christmas wish.
EDIT: Funny how you only address the 360 fans, check yourself before you open your mouth. *oh, I mean @sshole*
need to shut there a$$holes, excuse me i meant mouths, and get off of this site. I'm tired of all of this childish flaming. RROD this no games that. Just shut up and be happy or buy all of them.
it was the RROD,consoles hotter then a dragons breath!PLAY B3YOND
If it was a PS3, the kids would be crying. No good games OR rumble. DAMN!
Im really glad the kinds got their 360 system. Its good for them. But throughout the whole video none of them expressed anyform of gratitude. I mean common your parents buy you a 360 you wanted for so long and you cant even say a simple "thank you"?!? This is a perfect example of how wayward kids are growing up these days.
Oh I see...the parents are going to use the Xbox360 to try and teach their children patience. After all you have to be very patient when you send it away to get repaired.
thats good! +1 sense of humor for you!
man oh man, this site IS riddled with clowns.
@bigE... bubbles for ya.. Exactly I expected a little thanks from the kids.. Cheap kids
haha aww the was the coolest way to get a gift. wish i got something cool like that :-)
Sick, when im older and if i had kids i would tell them to get cereal and then hide a system behind the cereal box.
I can't wait to play those guys on Live. 4 kids switching back and forth, teamkilling and we know that one of them has quite a scream.
Wow their sure are alot of scrooges in here. Calm down Sony boys.
It's good to see that their are still some nice families out there. I'm tired of hearing all these articles of kids killing because of "video games."
this is funny! Thats exactly how i give my kids there chores! I tell them to go to the fridge for a surprise......and SURPRISE theres your chores.........now get to work. Wouldn't have thought it would make a good way to give gifts.
THAT'S EXACTLY THE REASON WHY MORE AND MORE OF US ARE LOOKING TO OTHER SITES FOR INFO ON GAMES and TECH NEWS.
GROW UP LOSINGS.
THE KIDS IN THIS VIDEO WOULD HAVE BEEN JUST AS HAPPY WITH ANY OF THE THREE CONSOLES.
No need to bash consoles in this post. Don't be a grinch. Regardless of which console you prefer a kid would be happy to get any of these consoles as a gift, they just want to play great games. Merry Christmas kids.
Wow, why would you make fun of the kids for being exciting on getting a great Xmas present. I remember feeling the same way. What you want a non human response and something scripted, jeez it was a great day for them and those are some very fine parents showing care for their kids. GROW UP!
Secondly to the comments about the PS3. 1st Blu-ray is amazing and I only buy those when availble. The comment about only what 3 games? That's not accurate either seeing as I have 8 PS3 exclusive games that are amazing. Not to mention all the AAA PS3 only game coming next year. Not to mention FFXIII and VSXIII will probably be the best games of all time(thus far)
Let people enjoy what they like. If you don't have something good to say, then please... shut the hell up.
All the systems are fantastic in their own way. Don't be a hater, be a gamer and get them all!
you had opinions which you stated in a mature manor. Then proceeded to praise all three systems. Why can't more people on this site be like you.
As for your comments about ps3 i also agree and i can't wait for whats in store. Same goes for 360 but not much is appealing to me for next year but we'll see. Alan wake looks pretty cool but not too much else in my eyes maybe fable 2.
couldn't agree with ya more!
It RED RINGS on them! Ha! what a mistake buy that system.
Purchased an extended warranty, because sadly their gonna have to ship it back out for repair... or take it back to the store and exchange it for a working model. Hopefully they put that store credit to a PS3.
Can someone tell me why this articles picture is a 360 with the RROD? Is that supposed to be some hidden satire on this. I love this video, it reminds me when I first got my 2600, Master System and Mega Drive. I was a poor bastard too and things really meant allot to me when they happened. Can fanboys also shut the f*ck up and play their games.
*turns away toward his 1942 arcade machine for some genuine gaming*
NO WAAAAAAY! NO WAAAAAAAAY! OH MY GOSH! OH MY GOSH! You sly dogs! You sly dogs!
Sweet, I remember being that excited when I got my Bike 18 years ago. It was a Dyno freestyle bike that cost like $300 bucks.
Slow day for 360 news? Seriously how is this news?
It is a video. That is why it was posted as a VIDEO and not news.
