As some of you may know, the legendary Miyamoto (The Nintendo Man) was in Manhattan about a day ago. The line was atleast 4 to 5 blocks long. I mean sure, i knew there was going to be a line....but are these people waiting for the cure for cancer or something?



Everything was going pretty well though. Everyone was happy as you can see from the images.



People showed nothing but respect throughout that whole day wether they was fat, skinny, stupuid ect it didn't matter.




But then, out of the mist or should i say front door breeze, a guy walks in and ask him to sign this...



That's right a PSP. I mean comon, i mean is this kinda disrespectful or what, the guy minus well had went back again and told Miyamoto that he loves his work. Sonic specially. And also tell him that he's eagerly awaiting his next sequel to Halo. So as the title says, does anyone think this is disrespectful or just a harmless joke that people shouldn't over react like idiots about? :(

Lol he didn't sign it from what i heard from everyone, and the question he asked after he said no about sigining it, was will you trade me for a DS and they escorted him out the door.

0_0 No he didn't, the guy just asked him afterwards to trade for a DS and he kicked his ass out the door....and you think that's a smile? It looks more like one of those looks that gives off an spechless " wtf " impression ...But then again it sorta looks like hes smiling, i guess it looks like he wants the psp badly... he shouldve traded him for it.....hard too tell really whats going through his mind..i guess of that expression

sony was origionally part of nintendo (as far as consoles go) so its not too big a stretch for some people to see nintendo as the REAL father of sony.


still funny tho :p

That dude must have been dumb. That's like going to George Bush and asking him to sign your picture of Jon Kerry. It's just ***. The expression on Miyomotos face is priceless he's just like "Wha?"

I think that the way Miyamoto has been possessed by Playskool and Fisher Price for the last 5-10 years, he had it coming, but that aside I salute that guy for bringing the point to Nintendo's doorstep that they are not the King anymore.

Wow, that's something that Kaination would do. Definetly. It's not disrespectful or harmless. It's what I call "Burned"

Ionno it seems harmless i mean i know ive gone up to a cashier at Mcdonalds and asked for a Whopper. Some have gone "huh?" while others just smile and order me a big mac. This was the same joke done on a much larger scale so i salute this guy.

Meh...I'd hardly call it harmful, and I most certainly wouldn't call it "making a stand", "presenting a point", or "genius". The guy probably just wanted to see if he'd get a rise out of Miyamoto if he presented a PSP to be signed. It'd be no different than asking Bill Gates to sign an iBook. In my opinion, it's about as pointless and shallow as a console war thread.

Still, it may have been amusing to see how an executive would react to that kind of thing, heh.

Agreed, and that's why it's kinda funny.

The look on Miyamato's face is priceless. You never see anything but a big smile from the guy, yet he looks like that in the picture. And then look at the lady by him! XD

A bit rude, but nothing like "OMG YOU DARE TOY WITH THE GREAT MIYAMOTO?!". But probably was hilarious when he actually said it.

But if he waited in a line that long just for a joke.....
