Earlier this month, US President Barack Obama mentioned Microsoft’s Xbox as a way to frame the government shutdown. Today, it’s PlayStation’s turn: this time, Obama’s comparing health insurance to Black Friday sales.
Clearly the president of the United States understands how important it is to stay neutral in this high-stakes next-gen console war. If you’re the President of the United States, and you decide to talk about Xbox, you’ve gotta throw in a PlayStation mention too. We wouldn’t want the country to get caught up in another long, drawn-out console war.
I guess Nintendo has to be next? Someone make sure Obama knows that a Wii U isn’t just a Wii accessory.
