The ones below are interesting and some of these games are Sony exclusives! Good that Sony can laugh at themselves ;)

- In MotorStorm there's a set of races called 'Giant Enemy Crab'.

- On the end credits for PSN game Super Stardust HD, a message reads "may all your giant enemy crabs belong to your weak spot for massive damage".

- In Heavenly Sword, Kai interrogates an enemy commander for a password that she needs. When the commander declines, she points her crossbow at his groin and says "Perhaps I'll hit your weak point... for massive damage!"

- In Monster Hunter Freedom 2 there is a quest named 'Giant enemy crab', where you must battle a crab-like enemy.

- In the Springfield Zoo level of The Simpsons Game, a sign states that the Giant Ancient Crab exhibit is "closed due to massive damage".

It really got people talking about the PS3 early on and helped the game sell I'm sure.

Who was that guy that announced that game anyhow?
