Hey, Wash Post: Quitcha bullsh*bleep!*
I’ve seen this kinda thing before from the Washington Post, but this one takes the cake and sends a snapshot of it to Kotaku.
Supposedly, Nintendo won E3. Matter of fact, here’s the headline: “Nintendo Is Star of E3 Show as Rivals Scramble to Catch Up”
Is that so… I’ll give you the leg up on Microsoft, their E3 keynote address was — and i’m mincing words here — abysmal. But even then, it’s sort of hard to say Nintendo spoke to anyone who witnessed E3. It seemed as if Nintendo was there thinking it was E3’s old spot amidst CES. Reggie was all “Well, we’re gonna sell millions to the casuals, and that’s why we fuckin’ OWN. But i’m sure you’ll love this, too!” You could almost picture him in Vegas circa 1992 pitching WiiFit – inbetween booths showcasing newfangled CD players – to some tech company businessmen who couldn’t give a rat’s ass if they were rats themselves. “Gentlemen, this here doodad will go over smashingly with the tykes! And you’ll love it too! Expand your marketssss!”
The fishy part is that Nintendo of America is headquartered in Redmond, Washington. And this is the Washington Post. I rest my case.
