Kevin Butler, a marketing character used by Sony Computer Entertainment America, appears to have jumped ship to Nintendo, if this recent advert is anything to go by. Butler was synonymous with the Sony brand, but now Butler appears in a US television advert for Bridgestone which is some kind of tie-in for the Nintendo Wii.

      • Ignoring the atrocious spelling of this anon, yes I can agree it’s overboard. But being worse than 9Gags community? Bahahah that is such a ridiculous comparison. People go there and probably believe most of the content is original. I go to Nintendo news to get updates and so far, I can’t complain. I guess sickr was just trying to get more traffic going on since he sees the arguments that break out. And seriously, what’s all the name calling? You fanboys are getting rediculous. I guess I am Nintendo fanboy too though, I’ve been enjoying their products since the NES

    • Since this is the first post and the one everyone will see, sorry for riding on your coattails Sylver.

      But that title is linkbaiting at it’s finest. It’s like you’re opening the doors to make this already quite crappy community even more down the shitter. Stop this kind of nonsense and do proper reporting.

      • Um, I’m not the one who made the title. I just said “long live play”.

        I’m just a commenter who just said one thing – go yell at Sickr about the headline, I don’t even write for this website at all!

    • You do know that was an ad he was doing, right?

      In actuality he likes the Wii and the PS3 its just because he was working with Sony at the time so he couldn’t show any love for Nintendo… at all.

    • You do know his name isnt actually Kevin Butler? His names Jerry Lambert and Kevin Butler is just a marketing character made by Sony, as a sort of “fake” head of Sony, to make advertisement campaigns.

        • As he said, you really are shaming Nintendo fans as a whole by the way you act. At least have some decency and stop criticising everything other than Nintendo, or saying they’re perfect even when they mess something up.

          • Nintendo are far from perfect. A lackluster finish for the Wii, Operation rainfall… Xenoblade was easily in the top 3 games for the Wii. Lack of third party. Shit online especially smash bros. It had great first party games but other than that one of Nintendo’s worse consoles IMO.

            And before the fanboys flame me… yes i Know they sold the most this gen… but I am not a shareholder am i? It does not affect me. What affects me is having to buy a second console to get the third party games the Wii FAILED to get.

            Unation: I was playing since i was 3 years old and I am 24 now and I can tell you that you are an embarrassment to Nintendo of Europe, America, japan…. and to gamers in general.

    • wow u really r something the ps4 isnt even close to coming out and ur already judging it. actually nintendo has been stealing ideas already. like they stole. achievments from microsoft they stole to touch pad thing from apple with the touch screen controller. and they even admitted that most of their ideas r from past companies ideas like they were inspired to copy. and also the wii u doesnt support unreal engine 4 (which is the highest graphics gameplay mechanics for console). and the xbox 720 and ps4 will. nintendo always rushes theyre consoles like think about the wii. one of the worst online shit ive ever used wii remote and nunchuk suck as controllers and they fricken break easily and randomly turn off for no reason. so who cares what u think ur just a nintendo sell out who is only judging other consoles like the buttpirate u are when those consoles arent even anywhere near out yet

    • as much as we appreciate patriotic comments in favor of Nintendo, such a judgement on a console that has yet to release is exactly what the Sony fans have been doing since the wii U was announced. dont stoop to such a level, because you are representing Nintendo and their fans.

  2. He didn’t Betray Sony and jump to Nintendo. He’s an actor. He goes where the job takes him. Sony and Nintendo aren’t nations or ideologies. They’re videogame systems, and you CAN promote both harmoniously.

    • Actually, that’s untrue. During his time with Sony, he wasn’t allowed to say anything good in public regarding the competition and part of his job was to slander the other companies.

      • I didn’t know that. I mean, I figured all actors representing a product have some kind of clause which restricts their involvement in a competing product, but the fact is that he’s an actor. If they tell him to go to XBOX next, he’s not betraying Nintendo. He’s just doing his job.

        • Yeah, I know that he’s an actor and he’s just doing his job, I was just pointing out that he couldn’t really express his feelings about other companies. (:

    • “Kevin Butler does a quick advertisement for Nintendo” would have been a less demeaning and more resonable name for the article. But as always, sickr does things the hard way. This is coming from a Sony/Nintendo customer.

  8. He’s an actor, so what’s the big deal? Judging by the comments I’ve seen here, some people need to learn to separate fantasy from reality. Leave luck to heaven.
