Eating the the Meatball Shop.
In Season 4 Episode 2 “Soft Eyes” Weebay’s son Namond goes up to his room and turns on the tv. He grabs an Xbox controller, changes the channel, and starts playing Halo 2. Take a look at this screen grab below. Anything seem just a little off to you?
I played enough Halo 2 in college to know that the “Halo 2″ logo was not in the middle of the screen at the bottom there during game play.
So I have two theories on this; it’s either a) sloppy editing, which probably is the case or b) Microsoft was paying for that product placement. I feel like Davis Simon wouldn’t sell out like that, especially with a show like The Wire. But throughout the series, I’m fairly certain that when a video game is played, they are always using Xbox controllers. Coincidence?
Yeah, I probably wouldn’t be offended if you’re thinking I need to get a life.
