Abit Recalls Fatal1ty Motherboards.......Mario a Sell Out?

Professional gaming biggest sell out is getting his products recalled. Abit's is recalling some Fatal1ty mother boards because of instability issues. I've never really understood why one of the top gamers in the world feels the need to put his name on everything from cooling fans to custom mice and keyboards. Now I'm not saying that Fatal1ty doesn't have skills he's just a sell out. I feel the same way about Bucky Lasek one of the best pro skaters in the world but he shills for a car wax company what gives with that? Even Mario has sold out at least according to the sign I found at the corner of Queen and Bathurst in downtown Toronto. I showed this picture to Electric Playground's Jason MacIssac who has been involved in Toronto's gaming community for many years and the origins of such a sign are a mystery to him. Why has Mario sold out ? We may never know but I must say that he does look good with a little bling around his neck.

yeah, i gotta say, i dont care how good you are at any game, just play the game, dont sell yourself. Video games are going the way of pro sports, pretty soon theres going to be hot shots getting paid millions of dollars to put their name on anything and everything.

thats my 2 cents.
