BULLshiat.

I've yet to see one of these things anywhere, including Akiba and I KNOW there's some there.

We really psychologically damaged those people with those bombs.

At 150,000 yen ($2,000) for a single unit, Machida said the original plan had been to avoid the mass market, but tests in pubs and restaurants showed it had broad appeal.

Huh? Why would they care about a urinal?

Is this toylet made from Plexiglas?

Does it have split stream multi-player?

Too bad the article didn't include some streaming video.

The Japanese have some effed up kinks.

"At first, we thought it would really be only young people who would like this kind of game. But ... we're seeing this phenomenon where people are enjoying playing with it, regardless of age," said Hirotaka Machida, the console's lead producer.

Anybody that thinks like this, has never hung out with men, any age, any where.

When you score, do you high five the guy next to you ?

I hope this thing has leader boards for different aspects throughout the night.

I can honestly say I've always wondered how fast I was pumping out and would love to see a leaderboard with daily stats. I would assume guys would bring in super soakers though and mess up the data.

Super Peepee Bros was better.

Need this in bars now that there's no cigarette butts to aim for.

Urine for a real treat.

In related news, welcome to Japan.

They exist, I used one in Toshima-ku a few weeks ago.

It counts out how many juice boxes worth of liquid you piss, fun for the whole family!

Amusing. They'd appear to be most useful in places where men would be drinking a lot.

Just be happy it's not the Germans designing this stuff

What it'd be hooked into the toilets instead of the urinals. So what. Oh wait.

Makes sense.

If there's one game company that has experience with people pissing all over their machines, it would be Sega.

I'd hate to see the Sony version of this...ewwwww.

You can get this already for your Wii!

This (new window) works better for the mess and is much cheaper.
