The above video discussing the PlayStation Vita and the fact that it was on AT&T was from some sort of gamer-dork conclave, right?
Nope. That’s E3. That entire crowd is nothing but professional journalists, making notes for their stories to be published…and they still booed AT&T on stage.
To Kaz Hirai’s credit, he takes the booing pretty well…which makes us think he was ready for it. This begs two questions:
1) Why did they go with AT&T in the first place?
2) Exactly how unpopular is AT&T that a bunch of stone-faced pros start hucking tomatoes every time the company is mentioned in a glorified PowerPoint presentation?
