Soulja Boy's console is a joke, but the funny part is the rapper may soon be sued for distributing copyrighted work.
I love it -- It's so silly. What else is wacky about soulja boy's console?
Piracy is okay and good.
You are okay and good, my man.
Dont forget its got PS1 games on it too and Sega. A lawsuit just waiting to happen. And this idiot says he plays console games
Its in China, so likely nothing they can do without going through the Chinese equivalent of the justice department. Chinese tend to take care of their own interests and throw copyright to the wind. It takes quite the effort of time and money, not to mention likely some bribery, to rectify anything. I don't know if they can go after soulja boy since he's not in China himself. But likely they're just paying him for a licensing deal using his name, and he has no real interest behind it's release, design, or anything else about it. Just hope he never tries to claim copyright infringement on any of his work like some artists are doing nowadays.
China won’t defend copyrighted material especially in the current climate. It’s actually kind of sad that they get away with that.
They don't defend it. They just look the other way. So long as it doesn't leave the borders of China. Unless something has changed in the last couple years. Knock offs and piracy were pretty much running rampant for almost everything imaginable.
China is NOT our friend. Never have been, never will be. When the full scale of the theft they have undertaken for IP is unveiled it will shock the world. ANY company that is presently making anything in China....they own and are pirating your product. The Chinese don't invent things (they don't need to). They steal the technology that we WILLINGLY give them. The only good thing to come out of China was gunpowder. They peaked early.
They may not be able to sue the people in China, but they can sue this guy if he splashes his name all over this stuff.
They can sue this souljaboy idiot.
That’s what I was thinking. This guy is literally playing with fire.
The industry is biased against Soulja. Just another hit piece to squash one of the greatest consoles coming out.
I was saving to buy a ps5 in 2020, but that soulja boy console is really tempting me.
If you have to save for 2 years... don't buy anything
Imaa let you finish in a minute but best console of all time should have a Superman these hoes button
You're comment is a great indicator on the percentages around here who can't recognize obvious sarcasm.
Then again maybe its an indicator of people who just dont find him funny.
There's a certain sense of irony to his statement that I think both sides of the console war can appreciate in my opinion.
I don't think the industry could have survived without him.
The idiots that made this will be sued soon.
They are the definition of fly by night and will disappear off the face of the earth after the first shipment it's not their first rodeo create a cheap product that's just a raspberry pie emulator pump it full of time from torrent sites and get a fallen celebrity to promote it.
I'll wait for the SouljaSlim
RIP Soulja Slim.
This guy single handedly killed hip hop.
No. There are plenty of others that helped with it.
Kabaneri Platforms like sound cloud is a curse and blessing. Sure, it gives hidden talent to shine, but it also gives a lot trash a moment. Most record labels go for the trash because there's a profit. As for the rappers also going with crappy production.. that's true (i.e Nas for the most part)
No. he didn't.
I'm guessing you guys don't listen to a lot of rap and hip-hop to be saying asinine comments like that.
obviously not. most people that inhabit this site still think disturbed is great
Those mumble rappers is the one that killed hip hop.
Sure, if you sleep on every other good mcs that are putting constant stuff out. Stop listening to that sound cloud stuff and you'll find good hip hop.
Rap has been awful for almost two decades now. I don't think that was all Soulja girl's doing
Yeah I was exaggerating but I do honestly feel that he set the bar so low it never really rose again. Nowadays you have Soundcloud rappers with cutting edge production but garbage lyrics and on the other end you have very lyrical rappers that have boring beats.
People who make asinine comments likethis probably only listen to mainstream/ radio garbage.
Ninty, Sony, Sega, etc., will probably sue the absolute shit out of this idiot.
Eminen needs to make his own console, so after a few months you would get the slim shady.
LOL that I would buy
I am definitely not saying boo-urns.
I’m waiting for the slim mini or the slim-pro
I wonder if it has Superman on it...
Umm yeah most of those knock off consoles have NES, SNES, and Genesis games built in everybody knows that Youtube some of the knock off consoles. People who own the knock off consoles will show you games like Super Mario, Double Dragon, and Sonic on these consoles and rom hacks of Super Mario games. And if you're going to be a dumbass to lend your face to a brand that uses copyright work of other then yes your ass deserves to be in a lawsuit. This guy painted a target on his back when he signed up with the Chinese knock off I am pretty sure Sega, Nintendo, Sony, Konami, EA, Activision to name a few will be gunning for him the Youtube vid in the article made me laugh.
Funny, he doesn’t look Chinese
Idiot. Not going to sell, now you are going to get sued. Enjoy.
The games industry is just Racist. Soulja Boy dindu nuffin. He a good boy. The games industry just be keeping the Black man down! *Extreme Eye Roll*
I hope they sue this moron back to the stone age where he belongs.
Wow never heard of him am getting old lol.
Who would buy this, looks like crap .... just like this guy whoever he is.
His dream for industry relevance is to have a branded console... that's adorable.
I hope he gets sued, rebranding a existing product and marking it up $50 just too make a quick buck off his fans is shitty enough but to use pirated games to sell his bullshit rebrand is just low not to mention the false advertising that the piece of shit plays tomb raider...
Had no idea who this guy was. Just Spotify his song oversea drip and have no idea what he is saying in the song. If you're gonna take a Chinese emulator console and reprint it with your own logo, you better know what's on it before hand. His own fault trying to cash in on this mumble rap fame and sell anything with his name on it. Reminds me of that Shack Fu game, like really? Who ever asked for that...
"Hopped up out the bed, turned my console on, took a look out the peephole those are cops, yeahhhh, I'm out the window ohhhhhhhh"
You loved turn my swag on. I know it.
Well Nintendo better sue him for 12 mill like that other couple.
I wouldn't be surprised if they are just selling a Raspberry Pi in a baby form factor case
A piece of crap Chinese system, that in a not-so-bygone era would have existed solely on the shelves of cheesy shopping mall kiosks, has stolen IP on it? YOU DON'T SAY!!!
I never heard of this clown until now. This guy and 69 are clowns.
Anyone with a name like that in whats left of the music industry must be a joke. What planet is he from anyways? Lame wannabe rappers! Biggie and 2pac are rolling in their grave.
lol c'mon man, the disrespect. This guy got one and reviewed the console by smashing it with a hammer.
Until this fiasco, I never heard of him.
What is that goober Takeshi 69 gonna do to top Soulja girl?
