I love it!

LOL that **** was hilarious! I saw it last night and almost pissed myself.

Oh if anyone is wondering....At yesterdays PS3 launch in Paris infront of the Eiffel Tower, the good boys at Microsoft sent a boat with a huge banner saying "Xbox360 <3 You".

MS marketing still blows goats in Japan.

Anyway, I prefer tounge in cheek marketing like

MS or someone associated with MS providing places to sit at the PS3 launch event in the UK.

I bet if it was reversed it would be a ****fest on Sony.

Are you saying that PS2 fanboys were nice to the XBox and MicroSoft last time around? Or that the 360 hasn't been slammed in Japan?

Well, according to the wedsite on that chair:

Let the games begin.

Indeed.

I dont recall Sony or fanboys flying a blimp over-head much less sailing a custom made fanboy boat down the river when the 360 was launching. Its tacky for a corporate.

How about the fake fan made video pimping the PS3? Lets face it, both sides are underhanded and devious. Take for example the PS3 German event where the first 50 people to stand on the stage and smash their 360's against the ground would win a free PS3.

Do you mean too tacky for a corporation? This is video games not an accounting firm, and you're defending sony for being more lame with their advertising. Fanboy shield activated!

Please notice how I said that I am a marketing student first then a gamer...any form of advertising that is creative and effective I find interesting and inspirational. Really makes me want to think outside of the box.

I did not create this thread to say:
"Oh look at how great microsoft is to sony....360 woohoo....blah blah..etc."

I just thought this was interesting and that some members of the nv community would appreciate it (like myself) so I posted it here...please do not try and turn this thread into a microsoft vs sony ...it was not intended to be such.

Thank you.

Crap! Corporate and corporation is not that same? Oh well I pretty sure anyone with a half of a brain got what I meant without dissecting it. And I was not defending anything but showing disgust for MS distasteful actions by having a boat troll during PS3's launch.

Well if you don't know that corporate and corporation is not the same word, then you make yourself look dumb. I'm not dissecting anything there. Oh and btw, if you find a boat with the sign "360 <3 You" distasteful, you have absolutely no sense of humor.

His total devotion of Sony blinds him from any form of objectivity. It's best to ignore then to try and reason with these types of situtations.
