Shoko-tan’s Final Xbox 360 Betrayal

shoko-tan

Xbox 360 fans lusting after ota-idol Shoko-tan have been dealt another grievous blow with the news that she gave away a number of Xbox 360 games, without even bothering to play them.

“I’ll giving away a set of Xbox 360 games I haven’t played yet,” according Shoko-tan in her blog.

Among the titles were Lost Odyssey, Fable II, Gears of War, Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise, Forza 2 and Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts. Notable by its absence is her prized beta copy of Tales of Vesperia…

Ironically, the fan that won the set does not even own an Xbox according to Shoko-tan.

Doubtless he would never even consider playing them anyway, as to an otaku such hallowed relics demand reverential ensconcement in some sort of reliquary, or at least lucrative disposal by way of Yahoo! Auctions…

    The day Micro$hit releases an X360 error free, is the day I will buy one... Until then, no buy. I'm sticking to my PS3.

    My brothers have had 2 RROD, a friend had 3, another had 1 and several 360s I've seen in stores for display had either a RROD or the E64, if I remember correctly.

    How's that for unreliable?

    Maybe she was a crapy "idol" for the 360 in the first place considering she doesn't even play the games, some betrayal. Its all marketing.

    Fable 2 and Gears of War? Either Shoko is lying about not having played them yet, or she's got some pretty sorry decision-making skills

    Why would someone play a game on Obox (= Kikesbox) 360 when every single game is the lowest,cheapest crap out there?

    Even the doubleUinnovation( = twice the innovation of Sony and MS together = Wii) of Nintendo has more interesting shovelware than even the best games of the Kikesbox. Needless to say that, except the braindead Americans/Westeuropeans (Dutch,French,British), noone likes the Kikesgames.

    She could've made a mint tossing an autographed photo inside each case and auctioning the games off individually. Hell, she could autograph a photo of Princess Peach and it'd still work.

    The real question im interested in is, who is Shoko-tan and why should I care? What has she done for the 360 that makes this a "betrayal"?

    Last time checked the 360 was not that popular in Japan anyway, even though its more popular than the original X-box.

    Honestly this whole console war is getting old. I have a 360 and have the option of getting a PS3 if I wanted to. And my parents have a Wii that I can play if I ever get that bored. But like iv said in other topics, it boils down to what games you like to play.

    No no, im an anime fan, sir. Im just a gamer first and an anime fan second. And as a gamer i have no biest opinion towards any of the consoles. Its simple, if a game kicks ass I play it, regardless of what console it maybe on.

    And the fact that some Japanese idol may or may not play one of the consoles dose not feel me with rage. I could care less.

    *shrugs* Free time has nothing to do with it. Iv been playing video games for over 25 years. And the console war is nothing new. They been going on since the days of the Atari. Just tired of hearing about them on anime websites.

    It dosnt not make him a gamer ether.

    Really I just laugh at these forum posts. Going to a anime based website and finding 360 haters or ps3 fanboys is like going to a Apple Store and finding a Mac fanboy. This site should stick to anime leave the Xbos 360 vs ps3 war to the gamers. Hah!

    Your right Geerie, playing halo dosnt make me a gamer. The fact that I own a:
    NES
    Gameboy (original)
    GameGear
    Sega Genises
    SNES
    Sega CD
    Playsation
    N64
    Dreamcast
    Playsation 2
    Game Boy Advanced
    Game Cube
    Xbox
    Xbox 360
    And a custom built gaming PC, makes me a gamer. But hey, halo is a good game too.

    The otaku has been rumored to have already bought an egregious amount of plastic wrap to make cleaning of the games easier after extended fapping sessions.

    Stop lying to yourself. In Japan, it fails, but in the rest of the world, it triumphs. Wii excluded.

    It's because the Xbox 360 is the console of LOLSHOOTERS and the same damn EASPORTS game you bought ten years ago, which is popular among the many gun-toting hillbillies and beer-bong-chugging frat fags throughout the country. Granted, there are a few shining gems (Eternal Sonata, Fable II...I'm sure there's more), but the rest of the heap, regardless of how good they might be, is made almost entirely of shooters and the odd racing/sports game that isn't made by EA.

    truthfully, xbox 360 is generally seen as the non hardcore player or the children's console. That said, it does have a few nice shooters but i have always been a sony fanboy and a nintendo fanboy.

    Its the Otaku's console of choice in Japan.

    There's a reason why large numbers of Visual Novels, im@s and dream club are there.

    Zeebo isn't even on the same level of those consoles, and with the extensive list of crappy titles I doubt they are hoping a lot from the international market, let alone japanese...
    Actually, it'll be hard enough for Zeebo to have success in the brazilian market.

    But back to the 360, yeah, it's what ALL console companies to. Gather exclusive titles to grab hold on a share of the market.
    360 will NEVER be over in Japan as long as they have im@s. [/thread]

    It's the Otaku's console of choice because MS paid for the exclusives, just to get the 360 moving in Japan in the first place. JRPGs move consoles... cue DQ9 and the DS. That's something they learned after Xbox1.

    An Otaku would sacrifice health and cup o noodles money just to buy their favorite galgame, regardless of the platform.

    Here's a message to the Brazilian manufacturer of the craptactular console Zeebo: if ever you want to push units in Japan, get some developers to make exclusive visual novels for it. The otaku will 100% buy it if it's content they love.
