Sears Xbox 360 commercial has underage kid loving M-rated games

A new Sears commercial for the Xbox 360 has a young boy named Connor telling us what he discovered at Sears. Connor hit the mother lode, because he found a 360, Need for Speed, FIFA, and ... Halo and Halo 2. He dreamily looks off-screen as he fondly remembers fragging someone on the Sanctuary, and telling them they just got pwned.

Hahahahaha! I don't watch TV so thank you for posting this, otherwise I would have completely missed it.

That was great. Just another reason why rating systems are not effective for the most part. At least not the way they are doing it now. =/

willymcd6386d ago

have to be ned flanders or satan to deny your kid of any age to play halo. frankly who give a cr@p that the kid referenced halo. what a stupid post, trying to make a deal out of nothing.

calderra6386d ago

The "deal" is that most parents (and executives, and politicans) are too retarded to "get" the ratings system and its usefulness.

See also: "It's okay if my kid shoots up crack to increase his strength and beats a prostitute to her bloody doom to steal back his money, but if her breasts are too exposed, then I'm going to sue the company!"

This ad is just more confirmation that at least one quarter of Americans are functionally retarded. And most of them are managers or politicians.

Know what I truly hate about this site? People like you and not only you who just blatantly come out and insult americans, so excuse me I am American and I don't personally need your generalizations about who or what I am because your in a different country, I'm american and I'm sorry but the other 99% of us as well don't sit around knocking any other countries, we personally don't care about who or what your doing, so next time just leave your ideas where they belong and that's safely in your head

I must agree that what is said about the difference between violence, sex and all is a bit strange.

No offence, but it surprises me that a government debates about violence in videogames, that are rating for 18 years and older etc.

The shopowner/seller has to check if the person that buys it is old enough and parents should check their kids if they didn't get a copy from a friend or something like that.

But for the rest anything should be possible. Like it is in (porn)movies, thrillers, horrors, and what more there is in a less likely fiction.

Too bad this video was removed I think it should have cracked me up. Bad publicity for MS so they shot it down?

MetalNCarnet6386d ago

OOOOOOOOOH BOY, I bet we'll here something about this on the news soon. JT will make sure of that. Why pravoke them Sears, why!?!?!

alilhappything6386d ago

Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter - Gone but not Forgotten

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter launched nearly 20 years ago, but remains an easy recommendation even today.

banger883d ago

It's 20 years old and we can still play it. Are we going to be able to play Avatar and Star Wars Outlaws in 20 years?

Original Final Fantasy 7 - Is it Worth Playing in 2024?

Final Fantasy 7 has come back under the spotlight thanks to the release of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, but is it worth replaying the original?

Got to Zacks part in 7 Rebirth. Said f it. Finishing my game in 7 og. Just got to part 2 yesterday. I also got Crisis Core... So it'll be a while before I'm back to Rebirth. I just keep thinking about it too smh, want to get back to playing it. Not till I know Zacks story though. I beat 7 og sooooooo long ago, it's crazy going through it again and remembering things.

Got to Zacks part in Rebirth?
You mean you started the game and turned it off?
The game starts with Zack...

ravens525d ago

... Really 🤓 lol. His second part, I've played for 80hrs lmao. <---- PS5 Run time, probably not all game time. You guys know how it goes.

VIK21215d ago (Edited 5d ago )

Did you not ever play the OG FF7? After you recruit Vincent, later in the game, disc 3, return to that basement and look at the pod, there's a whole Zack story that'll trigger as a memory.... it's well hidden in the game and a lot of things regarding Zack are cleared up. FF7 Crisis Core is basically an extend feature of that hidden flashback... It took me years to discover it back then lol

@ravens52
80 hours in Rebirth by doing everything, and you should've reached Zacks story about 5 times 🤣

ravens524d ago

Ye I kno that's y I said not all gameplay time. But also I am very anal when it comes to exploring.

ravens524d ago

Not to mention fighting Titan at his full strength. Hours spent trying still haven't succeeded. Found all 3 ruins but I'ma masochist when it comes to games.

Very much so. Graphically it's dated but the story and the gameplay haven't aged a day. It's still one of my all time favourite RPGs and for me is better than Remake in some ways.

Barlos5d ago (Edited 5d ago )

It always takes me back to Christmas 1997, I got it as a gift and I was blown away when I played it. I couldn't believe games could look that good. The combination of pre rendered backgrounds and FMV really made it stand out. It definitely still has a certain charm that modern games can't replicate.

I can't imagine people will still be talking about Remake and Rebirth in 27 years.
