    But she's hot so who gives a shit.

    Yeah, it's kinda obvious that she was chosen for some assets and not others, if you catch my drift.

    EDIT: By the way, that image was really large so I just put a generic Vita image up. If anyone feels like resizing the image in the article then go ahead. She's hot so at least it's good eye candy.

    Personally I'd keep her on the payroll for comedy relief.

    So lemme get this straight: She doesn't know history, she doesn't know videogames, she doesn't know the company she's supposedly representing? Sounds to me like she also doesn't know how to do PR either.

    I have to admit, only on a second glance did I notice she was holding a PSVita.

    I didn't notice the first time around but the apps on the Vita aren't upside down, so they must adjust like some in use apps on an iPod or iPad.

    She's there only for looks, and must be the greatest airhead in Sony, Rainie is a hottie and screwable and I have a fetish for the cute and hot airhead but still she's a poor choice as a rep.

    Go back to school honey bunny, that's my advice.

    Just listened to the full interview (in Mandarin of course). Rainie Yang was asked what her favourite video games were, with no specific mention of console, platform, or company. Her reply was:

    "I loved playing Super Mario Bros. as a child, but nowadays I prefer to play various sports games like the golf game It was demonstrating on the Vita. I also enjoy games with more action, especially the various shooters that are present on the PlayStation platforms. In fact, I often play online [on the PlayStation Network] anonymously, so a lot of guys will probably have played with or against me without even knowing it."

    Yay for myself actually having a full understanding to what she said. =.=" The source shouldn't blatantly criticize a person without fully confirming the scenario. She wasn't specifically asked regarding a favourite PlayStation game, but about video games in general.

    She's holding the Vita upside down in the pic. And even though she said the words "as a child" she still gave free advertising to Ninty.

    Sony, ahh Sony :rofl:

    If anything her statement can be seen as "Nintendo is for kids, Sony is where it's at for adult/mature gamers", hence why she played Mario "as a kid" but plays "shooters on the Playstation Network" now.
