    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 forgot
    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

    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.
