Rare's Viva Piņata has now joined the ranks of World of Warcraft in the getting-people-married stakes.
A dedicated Viva Piņata player in Jacksonville, Florida concocted a plan to get his girl by getting her hooked on 360 and VP. "I just bought a 360 and VP for the sole reason of getting my girl addicted to VP and on her own system," he boasts.
But it actually worked. "Well, I decided to propose to her this evening, so I sent the only diamond my digger has ever found, with a note attached asking her to marry me. When she got it (across the room on the other TV) she giggled and said I was silly. Then I pulled out the real deal, got on a knee and started getting cried upon. She said yes, so next spring we are getting married!"
Brings a tear to your eye doesn't it, the fact that they must have two TVs and 360 consoles in the same room? Imagine the LAN possibilities!
