Ps3 production steps up for Santa

From Forbes via Evil Avatar, news that Asustek Computer Inc will deliver PlayStation 3 game consoles to Sony Corp this month as the Japanese firm moves to step up output to meet demand for the Christmas shopping season. The Unconfirmed report notes that monthly shipments will start at 200,000 units, rising to 2 million in October. However Gamasutra still think this is unlikely to meet demand. Now I'm glad I didn't wake Santa up.

The Elderly said...

Santa dosen't buy the presents, he's like got a global licence to be given all the presents the boys and girls need free of charge. Thats why he was so pissed at Microsoft last year....

I thought you knew that!

gnome said...

Nope. Din't really...

But how can he afford his beasts? What do they eat? What did Santa have against MS? Is there a conspiracy? Are the Americans behind it?

Oh, dear....

I need to relax. really.

The Elderly said...

no your fine, its a bit of a shock the first time you hear stuff about the real Santa...... is okay really.....

If you remember Santa had to fly to Japan to pick up the spare xbox360 what weren't selling and fly allllllll the way back to the North pole, wrap em and then go back out and deliver em.

(secret........) reindeer are magic and they don't need food......

(elderly is amazed at how little gnome knows about Santa stuff....)

gnome said...

It's all coming slowly back... Yes, Santa... A big red ... GNOME MOLESTER??

The Elderly said...

gnome said...

sniff, seufz, :(

The Elderly said...

no i cant hear anymore (holds hand over ears) it cant be, it just cant be, not my Santa......never

(a devastated elderly rocks back and forward on the couch.....)

though he did forget my mazeratti last year......

gnome said...

And he never brought anyone any plasma TVs.. Makes you think, right? Perhaps Mr. Santa is not what we were all conned into believing... And he's a Coca Cola mascot too...

The Elderly said...

no no no, Santa said this would happen, he told me about detractors and how they would try and get me to beleive he didn't exist, but he does and hes really real...


but the mazeratti........

gnome said...

Si.

The Elderly said...

no... can't be..... maybe i just wasn't a good boy last year, maybe you've been evil too.......... Santa sets a very high benchmark you know.....

that it, we misbehaved before Christmas Day.......

gnome said...

don't believe so... besides we got to resurrect mousey...

Oh, that was appres Xmas.

The Elderly said...

(looks straight at Gnome)

gnome said...

No.

The Elderly said...

your eyes blinked, your telling porkers...... i knew it there really is a Santa......

gnome said...

There isn't.

The Elderly said...

okay then prove theres no Santa... go on i bet you can't do it....

gnome said...

Everyone says so. john the Knife, Nick the Dog, Gus 13, my mother, my father... everyone...

The Elderly said...

........ Gus said thers no Santa.....
...... they could be wrong..... okay then if theres no santa how come he's on the coke commercial and the kellogs cornflake ad...... well?

gnome said...

It's a conspiracy, orchestrated by childmolesters.

The Elderly said...

Coca cola....... no, my favourite soda and childhood idol destroyed in one comment chain.......

I need to sit down........

gnome said...

The Elderly said...
