Prize Fail

prize-fail Any of the nerds in the audience will spot exactly what’s wrong here. For those who haven’t got it yet, the item on the right hand side of the image is a Nintendo 64. That’s a gaming console released 12 years ago this month. Are RTE really that stuck for prizes? 🙂

    @PaddyInEngland: I wouldn’t be at all suprised. Goldeneye was the greatest game on it.

    Damn, I was really hoping someone would give away a SNES with Super Mario Brothers 3 on it soon.

    In these recessionary times i would settle for a scientific calculator as a prize 😀

    Didn’t like the N64 half as much as my Sega Mega Drive, and I was equally as crap at it as I am at the Wii. Once I was playing Wii tennis with Maybury and I thought I was deadly until he broke it to me that I playing the example. That is all.

    @Gav: Super Mario Brothers 3 wasnt on the SNES you fuckin noob! SOrry had to be said, shouldnt be making this type of errors! Know your damn roots!

    @Ben: Maybe I’ll offer one as a prize on the blog. 🙂

    @Sinead: N64 all the way. Mario 64! Maybury always tricks people like that.
