XBox One and rape jokes

2013-06-11 14:20:13.441363+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

So apparently in the midst of Turkey's police dressing up like protesters and throwing firebombs, and the NSA getting caught doing stuff that, even if it is legal, should make us throw out the entire House, Senate, and executive branch and start over, there was a release of a new set of game consoles at E3.

When Charlene and I went to see Before Midnight[Wiki], we showed up early to get a good seat, which meant we sat through a whole bunch of the bad pre-show stuff, including an immensely tone-deaf commercial for the Microsoft Surface. Really, it was kind of a "we're trying to be hip and cool to 80 year olds" sort of thing. So it didn't really surprise me to see this: Huffington Post: There Was An Awkward, Rape-Insinuating Joke At This Official Xbox One Event

/. also points out that Sony's PS4 is advertising less DRM. And fewer rape jokes..
