These come courtesy of some odd basketball event
Microsoft recently organised in Korea.
The ladies are holding controllers in some of these photos, plus the Xbox 360 logo is clearly visible in a couple of them AND some people are playing games. Therefore it's perfectly within usual update parameters to use these pictures. This is practically news.
Two from the top, four from the bottom, please, Carol.
FROM THIS MAN: "The event is some sort of promotional championship event for NBA 2K8 on the Xbox 360 and it took place late last year in Taipei. It really can't get any more uninteresting than that, a boring yearly update from a company that wishes it were EA games, on the most boring platform available. Which is why it needs Booth Babes, they're very cheap during outside of the exhibition season."
"A girl, ruined by stupid clothes, ridiculous earrings, and a garish Xbox 360 symbol branded upon her neck. Like cattle."
"Can you spot which two in this image own an Xbox?"
"The winner is presented a prize! Given HD-DVD's death, Microsoft has resorted to giving these things away. Look how happy the recipient is. Look how the screen in the background gives an air of Elvis to the presenter's hair."
"Here's the winner's other prize - it's a return ticket to Korea, where he'll probably have to compete with more worthy regional winners and have to go through the same pointless motions yet again with the same ugly people who play basketball games on their Xbox 360s. He is on the verge of tears."
"If you do use these images, please don't mention my name, or my email handle, I do try to as inconspicuous as possible on the internet, because it's full of losers - SOME MAN WHO IS ASHAMED."
And with that, he is gone. Leaving us to write our own captions about hot foreign women with Xbox 360 stickers crudely glued to various parts of their bodies. There's an Xbox sticker just about visible on her arm, for example.
Behold! The tallest ladies of the East!
This is the registration area. Are we really expected to say something funny about this? Maybe we could've managed it in 1998, but not now.
Always good to see what genuine enthusiasm and happiness looks like.
That was too many in a row of men. Sorry about that formatting error. These photos were taken by a man called Rico Shen. Rico also took this one of a man from Intel.
The literal, physical embodiment of the phrase "over the moon."
