Daily Bite: When Toby Met Major Nelson

Our last appointment at this year's Gamescom was at Microsoft, and look who we ran into -- none other than Major Nelson himself. Thankfully Mr. Hryb was a jolly good sport.

"What is it?" he said.
"It's the Dealspwny!" I replied.
"Ah...a pony. So I can ride it?"

It's a strange thing, to be faced with a stuffed grinning pony wearing a cape. Most, such as Goichi Suda, opted to have Toby fly around a bit. But Larry went with logic. Be sure to hit the jump for that particular gem.

Ha - love these!
Most people seem to be good sports but have you had any industry heads turn their nose up at it or refuse to have their picture taken with the Dealspwny?

Toby was the toast of Gamescom. Most of the reactions boiled down to two categories:

1) "Oh my god, that's amazing!" Followed by flying Toby around the room.

2) "Hahaha. Can I keep him, my kids would love this!"

Chris Snyder, the chap from 2K I interviewed for NBA 2K14, said that the folks at the office would give him hell for holding a stuffed toy in an interview, but that his daughter would absolutely love it.

No one actually refused. Most wanted to kidnap him :D

Nobody's mentioning that second picture, then?

The brony evidence mounts...
