There is not any scarcity of meaningless, foolish petitions on the web and the gaming neighborhood, particularly, is actually no stranger to them. It subsequently didn’t shock us after we noticed a petition to “cancel” the reported deal between Hideo Kojima and Xbox proprietor Microsoft, however identical to there’s no manner to inform if the petition is actual or satire, there’s no manner to inform if it was began by “PlayStation fans,” like so many web sites have been eager to report.
We don’t blame gaming publications for these headlines (we’ve all been there), nevertheless it’s nonetheless unusual to see that a petition – which may be signed by actually anybody – began by one random web consumer was pinned on PlayStation customers, solely serving as gasoline for the extremely annoying, poisonous console wars. But I digress.
The petition itself is type of humorous.
“Kojima is betraying his loyal fans,” wrote Vrinn Y. “He has been blinded by greed. We must help him come back to the winning side. PLEASE SHARE THIS PETITION EVERYWHERE. Not everyone has good enough internet to stream games. Not everyone has enough money to buy a new console or build a new pc. Please Kojima, don’t leave us.”
That’s a heck of a heartbreaking cut up. The solely downside is that Kojima was by no means in an unique relationship with PlayStation or Sony, so somebody clearly wasn’t on the identical web page right here.
Anyway, the excellent news is that PlayStation has a particular place in Kojima’s coronary heart. After all, he makes use of a Hermen Hulst mousepad…
