Personally, I think that all of the verbal jabs taken at one another by the big three game makers is getting a little stale – but what Reggie Fils-Aime said just before the Nintendo keynote at the GDC is too funny to ignore.
GameLife’s Susan Arendt describes the incident:
“Kick his ass and take his name!” someone shouted from a few rows behind me.
“Who?” answered Reggie in mid-autograph.
“Phil Harrison, front row!” Sure enough, there was Phil Harrison, seated dead center, front row. Looks like he could show up on time for Nintendo’s keynote, but not Sony’s.
With a grin and a chuckle, Reggie replies, “Some would say we’ve already done that.”
Touchdown. The crowd goes wild.
Arendt went on to say that from that point out, the Nintendo keynote was much ado about nothing – but even Miyamoto can’t top Reggie from an entertainment standpoint.
