Booth babes banned in China

“Nerdy News” is a mini-news show geared towards gamers, technosexuals, and all other geeky peeps.

In this twenty-fifth episode of Nerdy News, I’ll be reporting on:

  • Watch The Latest Gaming News:

    • Chinese game fairs ban booth babes!
    • Apple eats into Nintendo’s Profits.
    • American consumer interest in 3D entertainment is declining.
    • Wal-mart is now releasing its top secret sales data.

    Here’s the new episode of Nerdy News!

    What do you think?

    Are booth babes a staple at game fairs? Do you think attendance will drop because of the ban? Do you prefer playing games on a handheld console? Is gaming on your phone more convenient? Does it surprise you that American consumers aren’t buying into the 3D craze? Do you find it annoying when super stores won’t share their sales data? Or is it good business practice?

    If you have any advice or tips on how I can improve these videos let me know in the comments! Thanks for all of your opinions! ^_^

      nooooooooooo leave the booth babes alone!!

    • I find it really fascinating that 3D awareness has fallen. I think the gimmick has totally and utterly worn off, and people are not finding it worth it to pay a premium price for 3D content, that is, more and more people are going back to seeing 2D movies instead of the 3D ones, etc. I know for me with 3DS games, it’s pretty cool at first, but you get so used to it that you don’t even realize its in 3D anymore. The effect just wears off. Great episode!

    • I hope that the industry focuses more on projection images, made from 3D video. Think Princess Leia being projected out of R2. I think that would create more immersive environments for games, TV, and movies. Of course, something like that would take years to be developed and catch on with consumers. I think over the next year we will see a rise in 3D tablets, phones, and other portable devices and then it will drop off the market.

    • I doubt this ban will last for long.

    • I agree with you! We have a 3D TV and it is super cool, I do wish we did not have to wear the glasses but you do look super cool with them on. We bought the 3DS the day it came out and I can count on one hand how many times Rob and I have both used it, the effect does wear off and I come away with a massive migraine. 

    • Great news today! The guy with the cut shirt playing games at Walmart should have been shown at the end as I couldn’t stop laughing. As for 3D I don’t bother with them at the theaters. I agree with your comment that if they were projections, that that would make me more inclined to buy the technology as I don’t like the glasses effect. It has never given me headaches, but on the pc, the amount of hoops you have to jump through and pay for does make the migraines creep in. I don’t think the technology will ever catch on in theaters the way they want it too because they always hype it to an extreme level that ends up makes the consumer feel cheated at having paid more for what ends up being a not so great experience.

      Playing games on your phone is not “gaming”…

      Also: Please reherse your lines before doing the video, it’ll make you seem more confident, as it is now you sound as if you’re trying to learn how to read aloud for the first time while recording, it’s really horrible..

      It’s china. They’re extremely anti-sexuality in any regard, so that’s not happening.

      Seeing a group of scantily clad women loitering around a stall I want to visit is just creepy, a little brothel-like and likely to put me off whatever game they’re advertising. Ninja Gaiden advertising by taping breasts to a wall in a public street was singularly amusing, but the number of games that advertise by inserting a woman with ginormous breasts anywhere in the poster or booth just adds to people’s preconception that gamers are weird creeps.

      Considering the majority of Chinese online gamers are teenage males who can’t even look at a regular female in public without shrinking away, it’s probably for the best…
