The Taiwanese are not impressed by the PS4

42 second read


Like many of you, I was impressed by the PlayStation 4 reveal. It seems the folks at Next Media Animation, the folks behind Taiwan’s bizarre CGI animated news segments aren’t quite as enthused. They’ve taken their uh…unique talents and applied them to the PS4 reveal event – picking the whole thing apart and highlighting the bits they didn’t like; such as the absolute lack of a console or its price, the pointlessness of Move and the missing backwards compatibility. Watch it, because it’s…bizarre. It’s got a robot that shoots lasers out its eyes, for example.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    And therein is the reason I didn’t go back. They are just WEIRD.

    Because its made in China.

    • HvR

      Made in China by Tawainese (??) owned companies. Best FU ever, oooo u commies kick us out China then we have you wolk to death or suicide to make us lich.

    Haha they even rip into Nintendo

    It’s only a matter of time until the Chinese develop their own console that rivals MS and Sony. Look at how Huawei is sitting as the 3rd most shipped Android manufacturer ahead of Sony and even anything WP8 can bring forth.

    • HvR

      HTC 2nd most sold Android based product. But why bother if you profit from every electronic device being manufactured. Apple, Sony, MS, Nintendo, Acer, HP, Dell all use Foxconn (Taiwan) production who use cheap Chinese labor to maximize profits.

    They have no idea what they are on about! haha

    DAFUQ I just watch? 0_o

    laughed my ass off 🙂

    I think their presentation of the shadowed out PS4 is actually very close to what the real thing is going to look like… just add blue LED, silver/metallic Playstation lettering (not sure about if there is going to be a 4 on it since it apparently means death/bad luck in Japanese)

    • HvR

      dammit forgot about the slot into which you are going to inject the steroid awesomeness that you have to order via Gaikai or smartphone app at $5 a month

  • Lardus

    That was quite hillarious!

    If i have to sift through PS4 screenshots on my facebook timeline I’ll probably blow my brains out as well.
