It's true, you really can smell a corporate sponsorship a mile away, can't you?

Still, spare a thought for Rio & Theo (and Didier and Nani), who are only going to the World Cup in a computer game...

'Gaming got me World Cup-ready' - Wright-Phillips

Postby c3dpo » 08 Jun 2010, 15:31

I've been a massive believer of gaming making you better at many things for years, mainly I find though that due to the levels of testosterone created from gaming, I'm the hairiest Mofo I know!!!

Seriousluy though, I do no sport or nothing. But then react like a ninja cat when my beloved gaming device is about to have tea spilled all over it ;)

further to this, I really believe it assisted me driving (Through games like Forza etc), understanding how oversteer / understeere works and is counteracted etc.

Don't knock the dude, I think he may be on to something ;)

i remember when David James played for Liverpool(i think)and he was having a really bad season,and he blamed it on playing Tomb Raider

i wonder if Shaun Wright-Philips will do a U-Turn and blame gaming for if he has a s**t World Cup
