    Like I said, he has been taken out by Sony. Link


    While I think it a bit too far,but from their pov, he did work for them and he was probably under contract.

    Yay, yet another Sony lawsuit!

    *Walks out

    Wait, how can you sue Kevin Butler if he's the VIP of lawsuits as well?

    I believe the likely possibility is Butler was still under a contract or at least some kind of legal agreement, else I doubt Sony would do it just because he played Mario Kart.

    Also, inb4 everyone bitches about Sony.

    Isn't the commercial of Kevin Butler playing Mario Kart a few years old? To me, I think the suing is pointless.

    He's the VP of Everything; Mario Kart is within his jurisdiction.

    This wont go anywhere. Kevin Butler is a fictional character!

    So I'm reading this as "Sony is suing imaginary people."

    if you bothered to read the source (abit a poorly written article) they are suing his advertising firm, they will most likely settle out of court though

    I did read the source. I do believe the joke was lost on you.

    It would be funny if somehow Nintendo was on his defense. Then we'd have a real console war on our hands.

    I don't think nintendo would ever have to come to his defense. sony already does enough to sabotage themselves.

    yes, nintendo aka. phoenix lawl.

    J/k... Sony shouldn't be so serious, after all they don't have any Mariokart-esque Racers that don't you know... suck ... this coming from a person who owns a psp and likes the ps2 + 3 games

    If they have time to be suing people then they certainly should've have time to spend on improving the Vita starting with folders and a nicer looking UI.

    Topic closed since it turned into another Sony bitchfest, had to remove lots of post and I can foresee this crap continuing if I leave this open.
