Jeopardy always has a funny amount of Sony product placement bc it’s produced by Sony Pictures

ID: h4zzc2y

Yep. Jeopardy and other gameshows use to be a joint venture between Sony and ATT. Sony bought ATT's share a while ago lol.

Was it?

I thought Jeopardy was owned by Sony since 1989 when they bought the company that originally made it. I don't think AT&T ever had a stake in Jeopardy, although they did have a stake in Game Show Network till 2019 when Sony took it over fully but, that's just a cable channel.

Every Sony media thing has a lot of product placement. In The Mitchell vs the Machines the girl, I forgot her name, uses a Sony camera and a walkman. In The Social Network Zuckerberg uses Vaio, in both The Amazing Spiderman Pete is using a Vaio laptop, a Sony camera and if I'm not mistaken even a Sony Xperia. It's goddamn funny because they pit them in your face

And in House of Cards Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey's character) plays Killzone 3 and God of War Ascension.

Fun Fact: Sony's 2020 Corporate Report features the words "synergy", "synergies", or "synergistically" 22 times.

They have a little chart about how they use the creative divisions for mash-ups.

ID: h50bzou

Lol yeah they’re not exactly subtle about it

ID: h511f6c

Today I learned...

ID: h5166e5

It's why that snake Dr. Oz was a guest host, Sony also owns his show.


ID: h52sfwa

Wasn't even aware of this!

Thanks for the info!

And Astro, Sackboy, Destruction All Stars

Why is the category called "Gamer's Delight"? It sounds... weird. (Not from the US by the way and not overly familiar with this gameshow besides pop culture references and the occasional reddit post).

ID: h5139ll

Probably a reference to Rapper's Delight, the first major recorded rap song.

ID: h512ywm

Don’t worry I’m from the US and I also think it sounds weird as shit

ID: h51ero8

The phrase "-blank-'s delight" is just a general phrase, at least in US English. Like the old adage "red sky at night, sailor's delight; red sky in morning, sailors take warning", for example.

ID: h50iuod

That kinda sucks. One would think it would feture gaming icons across the landscape, not just ps5 shit.

The ratchet and clack one makes sense, thats a 2 decade industry icon.

Destruction Allstars? That's just advertising

ID: h5130ua

Jeopardy is produced by Sony Pictures. It makes perfect sense lol.

ID: h51mium

The R&C question was cute and appreciated but they get more embarrassing as you go.

I can telll some of you guys don't watch Jeopardy. There's been many times where an entire category is dedicated to advertising a show. Yeah it sucks but it's nothing new.

ID: h512c3a

That's something that never bothers me. If anything, these "ads" help me get more questions right cause it's likely something more relevant to today as opposed to a an obscure category.

ID: h52iv4f

I mean like the other comment said, Sony owns jeopardy so not really that weird to dedicate a category to promoting their product.

5 : Anonymous2021/07/13 03:26 ID: h4zy86z

Yea this is just advertising dressed as questions lol

ID: h501tmt

It's probably a mix of both advertising and question, leaning more into an ad. Sony can do what they want with Jeopardy.

ID: h50cd0s

For sure, I remember an answer being Horizon Zero Dawn back when that game came out.

ID: h5134me

Every couple episodes there’s an entire category that’s blatant advertising. The funny thing is because it’s not general knowledge, people are more likely not to know the answers so it’s almost an embarrassment for the product.

ID: h51hvkr

It's actually pretty skillful the way they do it. They have enough questions that are legitimately knowledge-based to make you not notice how often they are simply advertising to us, under the guise of knowledge.

Impressive and slimy as fuck all at once.

ID: h51be1v

This is advertising dressed as an answer.

Some of the most embarassing product placement was in the first season of House of Cards.

This cold, hard killer politician of course plays God of War at home on his PS3. But one day he meets up with this senator guy, who of course has a PS Vita. Kevin Spacey has to utter some lines about it like, "Is that a PS Vita?? What Games do you have?" and the senator replies with something like, "All of them, of course!"

lol, here it is:

ID: h50nnjv

I mean VITA library isn't that big, so I believe it...

Been thinking about buying Rift Apart. I played Up Your Arsenal a lot as a kid and I really liked it. Do you all think I should try Rift Apart? Multiplayer games have been so boring and stale for me lately

ID: h50r2p6

100% should get Rift Apart. I have been playing with my Son, we played the 2016 version when it was free. He saw me watching a Rift Apart Review and was like "I want to play new ratchet!"

He lost his shit when we got a PS5 a couple weeks later and had Ratchet and Clank with it.

ID: h51jeeq

Thanks man that’s awesome that yall enjoy it together. I’ll definitely buy it today

ID: h512xx4

My favorite game on PS5 so far. I really love the story and the gameplay is so much fun

ID: h50rowq

The attitude from Up Your Arsenal is unfortunately bleached away and fairly G rated in Rift Apart. However the rest of the experience is stunning and crafted. It doesn't overstay it's welcome and it's all the fun of the OG games

ID: h51jg5v

Thank you for your helpful info!

ID: h50ls5c

Yes. But have you played the other ps2 games?

ID: h51jbig

No I haven’t should I play those too

First category I ever got all the questions right in

10 : Anonymous2021/07/13 11:00 ID: h50viim

Really, who IS clank? Ya know?

11 : Anonymous2021/07/13 09:06 ID: h50o3k3

Never got jeopardy. The prefix question bit to the answer just seems pointless. May as well just ask a question and get an answer.

ID: h50w15j

It’s the theme of the questions, some contestants that don’t have gamer knowledge might want to steer clear of those Qs.

ID: h50wh3z

I meant the fact you have to answer with a question. It's uneccessary. Doesn't add anything to the game. May as well have just asked "who is ratchet's sidekick?"

All anyone does is add "who is" or "what is" to the start of the answer.

12 : Anonymous2021/07/13 14:27 ID: h51g54y

Wrong answer it’s Rivet and Bolts

13 : Anonymous2021/07/13 06:07 ID: h50c86o

Wow. Sucks to see ads blatantly pasted on a show as classic as Jeopardy. Fuck this.

14 : Anonymous2021/07/13 16:56 ID: h5208ln

Just watching this tiny clip, you KNOW this guy just ran through the entire “gamer’s delight” category

15 : Anonymous2021/07/13 18:01 ID: h5290c9

There are ads in jeopardy? Gross.

ID: h52hreu

Haven't watched in a while, huh?

ID: h52itav

With ads like that I'll continue to not watch.

16 : Anonymous2021/07/13 23:09 ID: h53d32l

Isn't Jeopardy owned by SONY?

18 : Anonymous2021/07/13 10:36 ID: h50tt9j

Can we stop posting twitter links… I AM NOT making one!

You don’t have to create an account to watch Twitter videos.

I click on the link, it tells me to sign up

Wow they actually got it. Usually pop culture questions are dead silence or hilariously bad answers.

What Is Clank!?
