LOL Wal-Mart

I found this really amusing. And I don't just mean Kotaku's Mike Fahey's commentary on the issue (which is plenty entertaining on its own). The fact that Wal-Mart is so horribly out of touch with technology and yet desires a notable place within it is fairly humorous.

Via Kotaku: Wal-Mart Suggests Cardboard Packaging, Save Games

Wal-Mart has made the remarkable suggestion to video companies of adding a save game function to video games so that we poor gamers can save our games and turn them off when we go to eat or go to bed, thereby saving power! And not only that, they also make the useful suggestion of adding a standby feature to games! Gee, if only game and console companies would do that for us so that we could do our part in saving the environment! Oh, wait.

Now, in their defense (ouch, that hurt to type), they could simply mean adding more, easier save points. But I find that more and more games I play these days allow you to save pretty much whenever. So...I really can't give them that, either. As for the cardboard packaging...well, then we'd be killing trees.
