Sega's videogame business hit a 'new flow' this week when the firm pushed its urinal games terminal, the Toylet, out into retail in Japan. That means that those who took a shine to Sega's Toylets after using them in various bathrooms across the country, now have the opportunity to put them in their own homes, the company …
It's Japan, remember! http://news.3yen.com/wp-content/images/japan-crazy-shit-350x.png
Its the Sega "Wee".....
Hardware from Sega, a game controlled by pee, and many, many pee jokes in a very short article.
Is it dangerous?
The little boy depicted has a plaster on his little leggin... awwwww
(Or is that some extremely sticky pee)
It had better be good otherwise it's going down the pan. I wonder whether there'll be a slashing game soon?
This story is exactly one month too late
Are Nintendo going to bring out a Wii version?
...but it'll be a piss poor conversion!
Meanwhile over in the girls bathroom, they get to play "Bomber Command"
and once a month...
Get to use napalm
Booo to the naysayers, it's nice to see Sega moving back towards the hand held hardware market.
OK I give up!
I'll never be able to understand the Japanese. WTF?!
I've seen a few urinal inserts which were simple plastic things and fulfilled (if you pardon the pun) the same aim (argh) to keep the user focused (that's enough). It is a problem in public places - I sometimes cannot believe the mess (and am suitably enamoured of companies that make even that "experience" a decent one - it makes me prefer that location over the competition if all other factors are the same).
So, thumbs up for the idea, thumbs down for the price and installation hassle. The plastic gadget does the job, and if someone decides to play dirty (groan) and takes it away, replacing it won't break the bank.. Or the urinal.
A page out of Harry King's book!
Mine is the one with "The Truth" in the pocket
Kudos to Chris Watson -- and giant kudos to (ahem) dog pizzle if you set that up on purpose!
Not just a flight of whimsy.
It is not a whim. It takes longer to toilet train a Japanese child than a Western one. All that pixellation means they can not see where their bits are exactly so it takes far longer for them to blindly develop accurate hand-to-bits co-ordination based solely on touch.
