- Ratchet & Clank featured on Jeopardy!
Jeopardy always has a funny amount of Sony product placement bc it’s produced by Sony PicturesID: 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.ID: h501hre
I thought Jeopardy was owned by Sony since 1989 when they bought the company that originally made it.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.ID: h50bwh5
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 faceID: h50ljug
And in House of Cards Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey's character) plays Killzone 3 and God of War Ascension.ID: h515eio
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 itID: h511f6c
Today I learned...ID: h5166e5
It's why that snake Dr. Oz was a guest host, Sony also owns his show.
Wasn't even aware of this!
Thanks for the info!
And Astro, Sackboy, Destruction All StarsID: h50u0yv
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 shitID: 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 advertisingID: 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.
Yea this is just advertising dressed as questions lolID: 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 latelyID: 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 todayID: h512xx4
My favorite game on PS5 so far. I really love the story and the gameplay is so much funID: 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 gamesID: 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
Really, who IS clank? Ya know?
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.
Wrong answer it’s Rivet and Bolts
Wow. Sucks to see ads blatantly pasted on a show as classic as Jeopardy. Fuck this.
Just watching this tiny clip, you KNOW this guy just ran through the entire “gamer’s delight” category
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.
Isn't Jeopardy owned by SONY?
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!?
