An astute camera-phone photographer caught this little gem at his local Walmart. From the article: "Obviously Microsoft is paying big money for these endcap displays, and I can't help but feel they might have a problem with this."
they've been talking about for the Xbox! It's true! LOL
too funny :D
LOL Dualshock 3 for the win!
thats one bored fanboy, went to walmart at midnight changed them all and thought it would be a funny pic....
100% authentic photo.
Does that mean it was you that went to the Wallmart at midnight to get medicine for your sick daughter; yet still felt compelled to take the time to point out to the staff that they have Playstation product in the 360 display. Thats disturbingly sad.
and it's near boxes. Like those many nights I used to go at around 2 O' Clock just to hear the floor wax machine do it's job. while Walmart Employers stock up and move things around.
it was up front near the medicine.... opposite end of the store from the electronics section.
while would the controllers be at the front away from the electronic sections? I know my hallmark Card section. Top new brown finish, color little rectangle shaped objects from a distance. Yep. that's the Hallmark Card Section.
"In any event, when we pointed out the problem with the display, a store representative told us that they came from Microsoft that way. Somehow…. I just really doubt that." Too funny.
"Given the sales numbers for the PS3, I can’t guess I blame Walmart for doing ANYTHING to unload all of those extra Sixaxis Controllers." - Hilarious.
But its very strange indeed.
Lol, i got a good laugh out of this.
Sony's next move will be to send ps3's to retailers packed in a 360 box.
at least they wont get it back. joke. @ Genuine *price is right failure sound* http://maybeitisnt.ytmnd.co... Try again.
"Sony's next move will be to send ps3's to retailers packed in a 360 box." After couple of week the gamer to he/she surprise the console didn't get RROD. XD
Lol, yeah and when they find out that there no games worth $60 to play on it. Or when they find theirselves with a $600 brick appearing on FOX News, because sony won't honor their warranty ,because the console got dust on it.
But they'll know they got the wrong system when the red rings of death DON'T show up.
New 360 motion sensing controllers?
You went to get meds for your sick daughter at midnight, and ended up turning into a true 360 crusader. Nice work Dad. Side note : ...dont they keep all the controllers in the case for the PS3 as well as Xbox 360 at walmarts? I have seen headsets and random components for Xbox 360 in those end caps but no merchandise over 40 bucks.
Sony bought microsoft and this is the first sign. Pretty soon they will have the box as well.
I like Evil Zhuk better. Zhuks alter ego
IMHO, the evil version is "HANDS-DOWN BETTER" than the original
Yes you'd all prefer him since he's fony droid
i thought Zhuk was evil!?
With DS3 right around the corner, gotta move those controllers somehow
I guess they sold out of 360 controllers & they ran out of room for the PS3 Controllers & in a last desperate attempt they do this.
If it's ANY controller they'd run out of room for, it'd be those big @ss bulky dog puke white xbox controllers(that need batteries, by the way).
Still funny but news? So some dumbass wallmartian may have messed up heck it coulda been a bored customer or two for a lark (maybe even teh guy with the cam)
wal-mart employees aren't exactly smart or observent i could easily go in and mess with the end caps infact i do it on a regular basis so we dont know if some sony kids went in and did that.
Punctuation is your friend!
"go in and mess with the end caps infact i do it on a regular basis" Fanboyism is becoming increasingly disturbing to me.
One thing about this post that is clear to me is that PS3 fans spend way more time in the Xbox news than 360 fans do in theirs. Infact in light of all recent Xbox news should prove that point, maybe its because they still have no games to play. Why don't you guys go play UT3? oh thats right because none of you bought it, like 99.9% of PS3 owners (but it sure is better on the PS3 but we wouldn't know it). They should just put all PS3 stuff in Xbox display cases, that way they might actualy sell somthing in the US.
I guess fanboy is a fanboy - equally stupid no matter the brand. I don't understand why to be a fan of some piece of hardware, let alone a commercial company. I'm personally interested in PS3 because of it's exotic hardware even though I do not own one. I have less interest in 360 and usually never read / comment articles about it. Not many 360 fans comment on PS3 articles but Zhuk, Green and some others. They do cover that area pretty well.
What about you? Why aren't you playing all the great 360 games? Oh, you're waiting to get a new system back from M$, gotcha.
Judging by how microsoft designs their game cases any game in a 360 box would get scratched the f*k up
With that xbox logo on it thats when the crying starts. Anyways Funny article. Just imaging all of the parent who will get dupped ny this. Nice marketing plan sony. File this under *The Twilight Zone*
that would be funny if some parent that didnt know anything about games, bought it for there kid thinking it was for 360 XD.
You have more disagrees than agrees on every comment you make, surely this is enough to show you that your opinion is insane and illogical? If Sony sold 10 million PS3s tomorrow you'd probably say it's an error or that people are wasting their time "The TRUE next gen experience and superior hardware is ONLY available on the Xbox 360" You're a tool, a cartoon character, give it up and jump off a bridge if your life only means being a voluntary PR guy for Microsoft. It's very sad indeed that people like you exist. I think the most pathetic thing is that you must be over the age of 20 since your favourite film is bladerunner and you've actually played counterstrike 1.6, you've got problems I think you should see someone to help you live your life without the drama of the console wars.
He does it to get the reaction you just had. Thats why I ignore what he has to say. And by ignore, I mean I can see what he says, I just don't respond. Also, When someone clicks on the ignore link under their name, it shows that they have pissed someone off so much that they would take the time to click ignore and that is exactly what they want, so the more ignores they get the more fun they have. A number of people here have made a little competition out of it. Don't feed the idiots.
I always wonder why the 'subtract bubble' button in greyed out on his posts, and how he still retains 5 bubbles. The only thing I can come up with is that he is a joke poster set up by moderators to always have 5 bubbles no matter what.
Either that or he's just afraid to admit he can't AFFORD a PS3.
I don't blame Microsoft or sony...ofcourse. I blame the obvious idiots at wal-mart. Their hiring stock isn't usually quality people with an education higher than a Good Enough Diploma. Some of the employees have all sorts of mental disabilities. So nothing like this shocks me.
and the manager who said it "Came that way" is a complete idiot.
They were on display near XboX360 playing some games and whatnot, and I said... I want the Black one, so they sold me it...I got home, and realized IT WAS A PS3. I was alittle upset untill I realized the PS3 had more to offer.
That's funny. With there being three systems now that are all selling items the store are simply running out of space to put things. It's a headache for all retailers and I have seen stuff like this alot recently.
lol...the sad part is that some parents might have actually bought this controller as gifts....
hey we all know Xbox brand sells, so what better way to sell a ps3 product. trick them..
This is why I try to avoid the baby crying, white trash, smelly trailer park halls of Wal-Mart at all costs.
This totally wrong...
Sony is the brand leader when it comes to any and all electronics. With that said, PLAYSTATION 3® endorses a special connection with nothing but top notch peripherals. Only the SIXAXIS controller can give gamers the classic Playstation feel we all have grown to love, while simultaneously breaking the innovation standard by implementing motion sensing controls. With innovation like this, it's easy to see why Wal-Mart and other retail chains have no interest in placing Microsoft products on display. $niper
Don't play the innovative BS... many companies have played with motion sensing controllers before Sony. I find it funny that they just so happened to come up with the idea a while after Nintendo announced their plans.
Lol. That's all.
Heelarious lol. Good way to start my morning.
trying to call out PS3 fanboys meanwhile in your little mind your using this as a way to slam Sony as usual. Yeah Sony lies to consumers huh? And Microsoft doesnt? ahahaha Microsoft is one of the most scumbag companies on the planet. fact. Now get off your shyt. no subliminals. I hate people that hide behind subliminals......and they know who they are.... Power of RRod... lame-o !!!
You mean to tell me that Wal*Mart Employees are morons???? I never would have guess that.... /sarcasm
They had a sale on the 20GB hard-drive for $85. I walked a sales lady over where they were locked up and had her confirm it AGAIN. She said, "Yup ... those ones there" I said, "Great, I will take one" ..... once at the counter she scanned it in only to have the price read $210 .... oops, Wally World put the 120 GB in the wrong spot and by their own rules was forced to sell me the 120GB for $85 and tax since the locked case said "XBOX 360 HARD DRIVE ROLLBACK - $85". I also enjoyed grabbing a bunch of PSP movies at 2-4-$10 when I realized they screwed it all up and each movies should have been about $15 - $20 each. I would never have bought UMD, but after that day I now have about 10 of them. So yeah .... "I LOVE WALMART" the the intelligence it employes. :-)
Now I see proof....
i think you misunderstand how ad space works. companies pay wal-mart(or any other retail store)big money for that ad space. so, ms paid to advertise on the ad space. ms my not have known what was going into the cardboard shelves, they just forked over the money for the ad space. then again it could have been the wal-mart works that did this, either as a joke or out of stupidity or laziness.
lol lol that really funny
pretty funny though. Somewhere Sony has a display with Microsoft product in it. This is what happens when you hire an uneducated person to do a menial job. Sloppy work.
That is pretty funny. I think someone changed them around or there is a stock boy or girl out there that knows nothing about video gaming machines.
I think the xbox community want some motion for their controllers and why not, its fun for some games if its used right.
I could care less about having a motion sensing controller on the 360. Although I'm sure some would like them, as you suggested if they were done right.
lol too funny
People are really bored nowadays.
This is one of the reasons my best friend hates Wal Mart with a burning passion. They always do stupid stuff like that. What idiots lol. If i were an Xbot fan boy i would have cried over this lol. But this is too funny!
This is pretty funny, but I can't help thinking this was done by purpose, you know, like when that shop was showing Killzone 2 footage to sell the Xbox 360 (actually, i'm not entirely sure whether the Killzone 2 thing was real or not.)
