The Gaming Night Before Christmas

T’was the night before Christmas, and all through the house,
Not a gamer was stirring — not even their mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In the hopes that a GeForce 8800 or console would be there;
Gamers were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of CoD4 danced in their heads;

Lo and behold, a C4 transport flew directly over head;
With parachute presents and game company CEOs dressed up in red;
Bill Gates shouted, "Now Xbox, now BioShock, now Mass Effect and Halo;
More LIVE 12 month gold memberships I will throw to all below!"
Prez Fils-Aime of Nintendo, obviously not to be outdone;
Said loudly and clearly, "I’ve got Super Mario Galaxy for everyone!"
Kaz Hirai of Sony then shouted with glee;
"You noobs have got nothing because I’ve got tons of PS3s!"

I awoke in a start; I heard noises on the roof,
I took my Wii Zapper and I was ready to shoot;
But down the chimney, all three CEOs appeared,
"We come bearing presents!" they all happily declared.
A bundle of games they all had on their backs,
And they joyfully gave me all of their map packs.
Their eyes, how they twinkled, their dimples how merry!
(But they were wearing HEV suits so that was really scary…)

I grabbed a 360 and warily said,
"Hey Bill, will this console’s ring light up red?"
He smiled and laughed and slapped me on the back,
"You get a two year extended warranty, so don’t give me any crap!"
I turned to Hirai and asked him a question,
"Just when are you going to make more games before there’s dissention?"

Kaz winked and he grinned from ear to ear,
"We’ve got MGS4 coming, so please never fear."
Reggie from Nintendo started to giggle and scream,
"I’d give you a Wii, but we’re all out it would seem!"

I thanked them all and bid them adieu,
While my home alarm system called the cops; the men dressed in blue.
The CEOs left all sorts of games and dual core chips that were oh so right, and left on the C4 shouting,

"Happy gaming to all, and to all a good night!"
