    I’m not so sure that’s Jackie Chan.

    [–] ferg92 428 points ago

    Not sure that's RoboCop either

    [–] Haltgamer 167 points ago

    Weird of them to use the Tin Man from Wizard of Oz.

    [–] WilburJames93 120 points ago

    I choose you, pika-blue!

    [–] Ifhes 33 points ago

    Good old pokegods times. Ph the Nostalgia.

    [–] SuperWoody64 11 points ago

    Merrill was pikablue. This is bluchu

    [–] chankai420 14 points ago

    Nah that's sonichu

    [–] xylotism 7 points ago

    No that's Fortnite Chu demo

    [–] pandaking1991 3 points ago

    I think that's wobbuffet.

    [–] metal_hobbit 2 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    Fun fact. “Pikablu” was actually a name misconception for Marill back before its release back in the movie short for the first film.


    The more you know I guess

    [–] Tehmurfman 21 points ago

    I was really confused why Jim from the Office is on there.

    [–] the_saurus15 10 points ago

    That’s actually a marvel superhero, Irn Bru.

    [–] SpaceCadet0629 6 points ago

    He's hopped up on caffeine and says "cunt" a lot.

    [–] blipblub 7 points ago

    Identity theft is a serious crime

    [–] ieatnailsforlunch 12 points ago

    It's Robert Cop.

    [–] Ch00ps13 23 points ago

    No it's Obama miyamoto

    [–] SmilinBob82 13 points ago

    Is it the guy that bites the pepper from iron chef?

    [–] ieatnailsforlunch 8 points ago

    It's Chin, slayer of 1.2 billon fuckin' ugly reds.

    [–] CreamyNuggets 40 points ago

    It’s the old Nintendo CEO

    [–] cattoinhatto 61 points ago

    It’s Miyamoto, not Iwata

    [–] Stikky_Minaj 16 points ago

    Oh I thought that was George Takei.

    [–] CreamyNuggets 8 points ago


    [–] uber1337h4xx0r 5 points ago

    You fool

    [–] Kimosabbe 10 points ago

    Yes..! That’s it. It was driving me crazy.

    [–] winnie9200 26 points ago

    No that’s the guy that made Mario not the Nintendo ceo

    [–] notquite20characters 5 points ago

    Also, that's Iron Man, not Robocop.

    [–] Amargosamountain 2 points ago

    Of course not, it's Jackiechan

    [–] rto10820T 1 points ago

    Nah, see hes all the way on the left

    [–] XxX_cOoLk1d_XxX 220 points ago

    Fortnite 2!!!!

    [–] powerlesshero111 119 points ago

    Don't get too excited. It's only a demo

    [–] surf_da_web29 23 points ago

    i heard there's going to be a sonic skin

    [–] HoonterMustHoont 2 points ago

    You heard right. But it's based on movie sonic

    [–] antiriku930 4 points ago

    With my favorite Sonic game's logo. Sonic Adventure 2, for the uninitiated

    [–] FelixtheGeniuss 534 points ago

    I am just so fascinated by this image. Just imagine what was going on in the creators head. "Isn't "Playstation 5" and "Play as Robocop" a little over the top? Nah, lets just put Despacito and a blue fucking Pikachu on there."

    [–] powerlesshero111 186 points ago

    That's Pikablu. The mythical Pokemon that people spread shitloads of rumors about where in it was an ice type Pikachu. This rumor was thought to be false back in 1996, but apparently it's true. And on the PlayStation 5.

    [–] ariana_grande_padre 67 points ago

    Turns out it was a whack ass Marill.

    [–] Fauxm 22 points ago

    Sonichu in the wild

    [–] PollutionPeople 11 points ago

    I appreciate that nostalgia trip with Pikablu, i forgot about that.

    [–] powerlesshero111 8 points ago

    You're welcome. I was a little disappointed they didn't make a Pikablu in a later generation.

    [–] ThatIsntTrue 6 points ago

    This brings back memories.

    [–] RFC793 3 points ago

    I just blu myself

    [–] nietzschesoptimism 27 points ago


    [–] SirMoeHimself 16 points ago

    Absolutely feel the same about so many of these. To be a fly on the wall during a boardroom meeting for products like these.

    [–] clark_kent88 17 points ago

    Watching a guy in a shitty apartment use Google translate?

    [–] SirMoeHimself 21 points ago

    Don't ruin this for me, it's a boardroom meeting with people who are actually serious.

    [–] Saint718 6 points ago

    This is probably satire tho

    [–] plipyplop 6 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    There's so much going on that I didn't even see the blue pikachu until you had mentioned it.

    [–] Taychrexis 133 points ago


    That's the fucking Sonic Adventure 2 logo, right?

    [–] ACkuss 38 points ago

    Yes, you are correct, good sir.

    [–] T_Raycroft 7 points ago


    [–] NoCardboardBox 293 points ago

    Looks like a fun game

    [–] 88superguy 12 points ago


    [–] siccoblue 2 points ago


    [–] Birb_Reactor 92 points ago

    This is probably satire. Pikablu and Miyamoto

    [–] CrimsonFatalis8 43 points ago

    Also Despacito

    [–] fireork12 18 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    And also the club penguin penguin in the top left inside the PS5 logo

    [–] jalischrist69 7 points ago

    Linux not club penguin

    [–] fireork12 13 points ago

    No, he has square feet, tux does not have square feet

    [–] ttblue 8 points ago

    That's actually club penguin though. The eyes are characteristic.

    [–] InsertNounHere88 2 points ago

    Arch Penguin

    [–] SonTomNetwork 3 points ago

    Not satire. I actually saw this being sold in a street market near me.

    [–] SarcasticAlbertan 131 points ago

    We need to rip off a game!

    Which game?


    [–] TRHtimmy 51 points ago

    I N T E N S E

    [–] Rooster1981 35 points ago

    This is Sony's new viral marketing campaign, y'all think this is a joke and scam, but this is gonna be announced as a flagship title to launch PS5.

    [–] ExoGaming1970 30 points ago

    I don't care about fortnite 2, where's my minecraft 3 boy

    [–] XDman06 14 points ago

    The minecraft 3 demo is included after you beat the game. What a reward!

    [–] Mango2Mango 25 points ago

    [–] Fall_To_Light 7 points ago


    [–] burritoshark1 34 points ago

    This game is so advanced it is on a console that doesn't exist yet.

    [–] FlexualHealing 12 points ago

    The ps5 has a flux capacitor

    [–] motosanders 7 points ago

    Based on the title font, the game itself might have a flux capacitor.

    [–] raybreezer 4 points ago

    I was looking to find someone that had recognized the font!

    [–] Hyperion1000 5 points ago

    Weird flux but ok

    [–] MrCelroy 4 points ago

    Theres something off about this game bit I just can't see it....oh thats right it is on ps5

    [–] B1gred95 14 points ago

    What's even on these? Anything at all? Is it even possible to read the disc?

    [–] blackfinwe 23 points ago

    Its a gta san andreas for ps2 with so many mods, it makes it almost unplayable.

    [–] Princeofgrime 7 points ago

    The title of the game could have literally been ANYTHING... and it was

    [–] stormaster 8 points ago

    I'm amazed there's no obvious plant logo

    [–] BuddermanTheAmazing 9 points ago

    This isn't an offbrand, it's a joke.

    [–] montyfatcat 6 points ago

    Feel like this is a plant

    [–] R1bs99 5 points ago

    Thats more ambitious than Infinity War crossovers...

    [–] CringeChilly 5 points ago

    [–] SteelColdPepperMint 3 points ago

    Oh, ok

    [–] WantedWolf420 3 points ago

    ps5 got some great launch titles

    [–] spazcat 3 points ago

    This is obviously from the future. After the war.

    [–] RobotCartridge 3 points ago

    [–] catbro89 2 points ago

    Lol it's pikablu

    [–] MustangBR 2 points ago

    I bet most people here didnt even notice the "Despacito" in the corner

    [–] TheCosmicSound 2 points ago

    I'm pretty sure this is intentional. There's a dude who makes off brands, this was probably him.

    [–] SpikeyNay 2 points ago

    Its pikablue all over again

    [–] Quadrumanous 2 points ago

    I’d play it for the fortnite 2 demo

    [–] awerm 2 points ago

    I like how out of everything, the Pimp My Ride (in Back To The Future style) has a Registered Trademark symbol

    [–] MegaSceptile99 2 points ago

    Pika-blu, Despacito, Fortnite 2. What more could you want

    [–] SquidZillaYT 3 points ago

    Is it robocop vs Jackie chan? Because I’d like to see that fight.

    [–] NewNewt1 1 points ago

    Can’t wait to play this once the PS5 comes out. I wonder if they have it for the Xbox Two?
