What are they thinking with at Sony?
faker_phil
Lol, funny guys...

...or sad. You'd think they would have employees that realize such mistakes.
ItsWesley
Quite an honest mistake actually, as I think the Japanese say R and L with the same sound or something, which is why that mistake probably happened, unless the image of it is a fake.
SilverDogg
even though i seriously doubt this is real, since its sony, its no suprise Wink
Lychee
Are u sure that it isn't a fake??
I just can't believe that a big concern like SONY make such mistakes!
But IF it's a fake it very well done...! Wink
ajgisme
WAEHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!
Theres no ay I'm gettinf the PS3 its like £450!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The nitendo Wii is way cheper unlucky!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
moonblade
Technically, that's most probably just a fake. But if it isn't... I pity Sony's QC team, they prolly all got fired.
rightclickscott
I bet you it's not a fake. I bet it really is another case of engrish.
moonblade
Yes, that's very possible - and I've been reading that site, quite damn amusing sometimes - though I'd expect somewhat higher standards from a corporation of Sony's size. Like, hmm, hiring someone that had an education connected with English, not IT. For example.
gothicgeek
Wow...just...wow. This is like the last thing Sony needs right now, what with its poor image of late. They can't seem to do much right these days. Here's an example of what I'm talking about, from Geekologie as well.
moonblade
...Ouch. That is just BAD. Their marketologists should buy some common sense. As for bad rep, Sony DRMs are bad enough without typos on joystics and crappy commercials already. I don't understand what they're thinking, to be honest... Not to mention that PS3 has way too few -interesting- exclusive games reserved, as far as I know, hence, it's not looking good for them.

Well, those advertisements weren't meant for people who are racially sensitive, such as that in Europe. This post by webcomicologist, Tim Buckley, is focused around it, and you, and everyone else offended by this, should read this post.

get an xbox 360... ps3 sux its to expensive for no reason. I would only pay that much for it if it had something spectacualr which it doesnt. luray is gay and i just hate it all around. Xbox 360 FTW!
ddukki
The Japanese (actually most asian, since this happens in Korean, too) Phonetics cause the "L" to be pronounced "R" when it's followed by Vowels, unless at the end of the word. Hence you have "Engrish".
djsamsung
fake...gotta be.

a multi-million dollar company wouldn't do a simple mistake, but it's pretty funny stuff!

hahaha, and most asians would hate this. Twisted Evil

Are you sure it's too expensive for reasons you don't like as opposed to being too expensive for no reason? Two things: Blu-ray and Cell. There, it is expensive for a reason. It doesn't matter whether we like it or not. There IS a reason it's expensive. Oh by the way, it's 100 dollars more than your premium 360 with all the same functionality + blu ray drive.

Why is Bluray gay? What does it need to have something spectacular? Movies? So are you saying DVDs and VHS suck because.. they're movies? Sounds like you hate it just because you're a Microsoft fan and Sony is their enemy. Really, I want to know what you think about HD-DVD. I pray you don't say "it's better than blu ray" because you probably wouldn't know why other than the fact that Microsoft is supporting it.

Knowing Sony... it's probably real. Heh.
rayx
Is it true that the Sony Playstation 3 Joystick has a motion sensor on it like when playing a car race you can use the joystick as a STEERING WHEEL ?

I think why playstation 3 is expensive is because of the Blu-Ray drive, Power-PC based processor, nVIDIA RSX Graphics Card that is more powerdul than DUAL SLI GeForce 6800 Ultras and a built-in Standard Ethernet Card. That makes me think that Playstation 3 is more powerful than X-BOX 360 when it is release on the market.
Rebzie
i was unimpressed with he XBox 360 i was continuously crashing and would even play alot of DVDs the whole way through. i'd sya it's a fake .
vonboy
i do think sony is stupid though. most of the price of the ps3 has to do with the blue-ray drive, which is probably a few hundred dollors by itself. seriously, why do you need like 50GB of space anyway? i don't see any games this gen taking up that much sapce, unless they have like 20 hours of cutseens or something, then it would just be a movie with the ocasional moments where you actually get to interact with the enviroment Razz .

That's not even what this thread is about, and all of you people turning this thread into something other than a thread about Engrish should shut up right now and keep your goddamn mouths shut, you nubs. Besides, you can't make any comments about the PS3 just yet, because you haven't played it, and you can't say you have. Not only that but the PS3 is going to have a game I've been drooling over ever since the first 8 minute long trailer, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. Solid Snake FTW.

Well, I actually am from Europe, and I really can't say I'm offended by it in any way at all, however, in my opinion, it does go a bit over the top and could be potentially a lawsuit fodder. However, in a way, it's simply a direct reflection of the very opposite side of the spectrum. At any rate, it's simply meant to be a provocative commercial, what with those being popular right now.

But basically, what I'm saying is that it's not really the best ad ever that I'd seen. Still, it does what it should do, that is, attract attention, and that's what ads are all about.

(And, I'll check out the link, despite not being offended *grin*)

You should, because it's still pretty funny. Also, what country are you from? Because it was supposed to be for Holland I think.

Bluray is gay do to the fact it's a very expensive brand of media, at the moment, and will fall flat on it's face like Beta did.
Sony never picks the winner, never ever.

More realistic graphics need a large amount of storage. That must be the reason why they support the Blue-Ray Disc. But it can also read CD and DVD too.

i totally agree with you.

to those haters, wait a year or two, the price for blu-ray discs and ps3 will go down...
jarcelao
LOL! Laughing

This made my day!

What a stupid mistake! Shocked
Shake
I don't care if it is fake or real. It's a spelling mistake. Who cares?

People make spelling errors all the time.
Fire Boar
It may be just a spelling mistake, but if it is true then it will show up Sony forever! No-one would look at the "Serect" button and not say something along the lines of 'hey, isn't that supposed to be "Select"?'. The answer would then be along the lines of "yeah, Sony majorly messed that one up".

Then again, this could even be a publicity stunt by Sony to try and match up to the renaming of the "Revolution" to "Wii". If it is, then it isn't going to work.

Or Blu-Ray will totally be taken out of compettition by HD-DVD making it pretty expensive and the PS3 pretty useless.

And it'll take a few years for it to drop in price...why do it NOW?
I do not want to spend all my money on GRAPHICS.
Stupid idea.
djsamsung
i'm totally not gonna buy myself a PS3, i can get a lotta things with that cash
Juparis
Regardless of whether or not the image is fake, I'm still surprised that Sony's using that controller design. Effective or not, can't they be a little more innovative?

Not that the Xbox controller has improved much either. I'll probably buy a Wii just to try it out--it's something new. There aren't any games for the 360 or PS3 (at release date) that would make me want either console right away--the price doesn't help much either...

More than likely I'll be part of the crowd that waits for Halo 3 and gets their 360 then. Hopefully some other worthwhile games will have been released by then. I don't know what I'd do if I got a PS3 though. The only game I'd want is Assassin's Creed. Laughing

Do you think that PS3 Game developer will develop for graphics only. . . !?
Even it is an old or new school graphics it still needs some story and gameplay to be able to attract the attention of the customer/gamer.
mattchun
No matter what it will be like, I'll buy it as soon as the Winning Eleven is released. You know I'm a hard core W11 fan.

lol

I've been playing PS2 for 3 years, and only buy ONE game, it's Winning Eleven Series.
ElementZero
Umh, it's me or the "PlayStation 3" font they used is same as the Spiderman one?





That's a bit lame.
Whong
I will most certanly not buy one! I really am not going to buy one, it is so expensive!
ltbennett

Haha, yea it looks the same to mee as well (except, maybe italicized?).
I guess people got sick of the old font, and being too lazy to make their own, they dug up the Spidey-mun look. Laughing
rayx
Spiderman Fonts looks cool to me.
moejoe
POAHH HOw hot does the console look! Its all glassy and sh*T.

I'm a NIntendo Man Myself.

GO WII!
Lychee
It's not the Spidey font…
I'm sure that would be against the law or something…

Did anybody scroll down two articles from the PS3 (http://www.geekologie.com/2006/06/ps3_controller_spelling_mistak.php) one?

If not or if it's gone here's the link to it:
http://www.geekologie.com/2006/06/bulletproof_waterproof_and_fir.php

Bullet-proof USB drive...Google's imagination is getting...weirder...

EDIT: LMAO here's a direct quote from the geeklogie.com:

"Capacities range from 32 MB to 2 GB and is perfect for all the nerds out there who plan on entering warzones but need to make sure their stash of porn is safe. Which it never will be as long as I'm still alive."

LMAO
lunatic07
