    I don't think it's really that funny. I think it's kinda low.

    It's funny that MS has to bash Nintendo and Sony for things that aren't really big deals anyway rather than because of the games (which MS constantly says are the most important things). Then again, MS can't really bash either for games because MS would lose.

    It's hilarious. Lighten up Morgan, you dont find it funny because you are too deeply entrenched in your anti-Microsoft sentiment to see the humor in it. Chances are it's all just a joke concocted by the IGN folks anyway.

    I know it's a joke, but I still don't find it funny.

    Like on Conan O'Brien, when he did the sketch with the pictures he took from the Oscars and Max Weinberg came with a shirt that had Oscar the Grouch on it and Joel didn't find it funny, Max had to explain that it was Oscar the Grouch and not the Oscar statue. Joel replied with, "I get it, it's still a stupid joke."

    I love observing things like this evolve when people have "backup." Things get manipulated.

    That was pretty clever. [​IMG] Reminds me of the era of 'Sega does what Nintendon't'. Sega had a well done ad campaign in the Genesis era.
    I also wouldn't be surpised if it's something the IGN guys cooked up themselves.

    I agree with Morgan that this isn't very funny. It's pretty obviously an attempt at deflecting attention from the rather unavoidable fact that Microsoft's online service isn't out yet and Sony's is.

    I'm not trying to be negative (again) but this thread really should be in VG Hardware (that forum is relatively dead compared to the VG Software forum, and this thread is about a joke related to hardware, not software).
