The software giant currently takes legal action against about one UK reseller a week, but expects that number to rocket over the coming months.
Lol that was funny.
I understand he meant no harm. No harm no foul. But innocent people are dying everyday from many countries across the world. Not just U.S. Its not something we should joke about.
So do you find software piract funny? Do you know how many computers die every day from pirated software? Every time you use a pirated software, an angel dies (its true)
The best comedians always seem to be able to make fun of themselves and sensitive subjects that many seem so compelled to never talk about. Not everyone thinks everything should be taken seriously all the time. Sometimes you point out the flaws and problems with a joke. It's call being lighthearted.
In no part of reading that did I see disrespect to our honourable soldiers. I just saw this as a political joke aimed at the government who pull out of wars simply because the polls say so and not the fact our soldiers are doing a fantastic job. I understand that people die and that brings me sorrow, but a lost war is still better than one that still goes on.... but no war at all will be best.
I don't know what Sashimi said but I remember one of my science teachers saying that the difference between American and British comedians is that British comedians will happily make fun of themselves while Americans can't. That's why he prefers British comedians over American ones. He obviously generalised the two groups but when watching American and British comedians it does seem very true. Serious issues are serious for a reason but that doesn't mean you can't have a joke about it to make yourself and others feel better. We all make jokes about stuff we shouldn't every once in a while and I wouldn't be surprised if people on a tour of duty in Afghanistan made a joke every now again about roadside bombs and such. I agree with those offended that it probably would be better to have that kind of thing in the open zone as there is a time and place for such things and in this case the place is the open zone.
WTH did he said? I want to judge him too
if M$ really wanna do that, I hope they come here to my country! piracy is rampant here with all sofwares being heavily pirated over here (of course except for the PS3) and all mod-able consoles are sold pre-modded! if they do, and every other companies do, I can safely say it's game over for gaming in my country (where legal softwares are like rare gems on the market!)
If it wasn't for America you would be wiping your ass with newspaper buddy. GROW UP and stop leaving stupid comments.
I'm american and I see nothing wrong with his comment. If you can't make fun of yourself or take a joke about your flaws, then you'll never truly learn to do things right. This is why there are political cartoons. They are meant to poke fun at obvious problems. You have to accept your flaws and problems before you can proceed to fix it. I personally feel there is no better way then with a joke.
Without America WW2 would have went on longer but we still would have won. America despite it's good has still done bad as have every country. Need I remind you of the British inventors who have done wonders to the eveloution of society.
Here come the patriotic americans. Spartan400: america invented toilet paper i must thank you guys for that my skin is sensitive to newspaper. We know america greatest country in the world /sarcasm
more sales, thats the only way they can catch PS3.
"more sales, thats the only way they can catch PS3." Maybe, but it was still a smart move by M$ nonetheless. Don't you think its impressive that people just immediately buy another 360 after getting banned? THATS brand loyalty. M$ didn't force ANYONE to buy another 360, but people did it anyway. "I thought PS3 was still in last place as far as install base goes." Me too :)
Catch the PS3? I thought PS3 was still in last place as far as install base goes. Edit: I hate pirates by the way. @ Blaze929 I read the article. I was just replying to a ridiculous comment.
you guys do know this has nothing to do with the 360 right...oh, I guess you're some of them "comment before reading" people
This USA vs the World mentality needs to quit. Ive been in the Army going on 11 years now. Its fun to mock other countries but dont do it mean spiritedly. Ive talked to many people around the world face to face and not on a message board and ive had long discussions on the differences in peoples culture. But when people including Americans start playing my penis is bigger than yours is where the fights start.
I thk you misunderstand. This isn't about "USA vs the world", this is just about sensitive Americans that aren't able to talk about sensitive topics because society TELLS THEM to be sensitive. Same thing with many Christians. My friend is a Christian and when I bring up a question about his faith that he can't answer he gets rather angry. I accept EVERYONES religious views, but some people are just raised to be too sensitive.
I've been all around the world, too. And I have friends from all around the world. My wife is foreign. If "the world" wants a respectful dialog, ok. But if they begin to dis America off the bat, then they'll get a response. 12
Huddersfield My home town lol :|
WTH is up with everyone hating on America/Christians. Really... You're over-generalizing. "My Christian friend gets all mad when I ask a question about his faith that he can't answer.". Yeah well it goes both ways with Atheist occasionally too ya'know... Can we all just STFU!! This is a gaming site! If you wanna talk about religion (or the lack there of) go on a religion forum! If you wanna talk about how stupid or how awesome America is, go to an America forum. /rage... Go ahead and disagreeing with me for my opinion. ((-(-_(-_-)_-)-))
go get em, Jack Sparrow.
It was ment as a joke...and i am sorry if i offended anyone.I am american and i do understand that people die in war and i have the most respect for those soldiers that have to fight so the rest of us do not need to. that is all and sorry again if i offended anyone.
