Rayman: Destroyer of Couches

I don't want to alarm you, but the cute rabbit-laden adventure game Rayman Raving Rabbids may mean death for sofas everywhere...

Now, with the understanding that game fans are, not surprisingly, very concerned about electronic entertainment that might have a deleterious effect on their furniture, I thought to ask Adrian Lacey, Ubisoft's game manager, about this highly sensitive topic.

Me: Will Rayman Raving Rabbids destroy players? couches?

Him: Mwahahahaha?

(I am not making this up.)

Oh, and oddly, Nintendo chose the Rayman video with its strange little children to spotlight its new Wii console. This dual-pictured image was one of the first shots Nintendo ever released for the Wii.
