Press conferenceThe presentation of this game at E3 2006 spawned several Internet memes. For example, Bill Ritch, the executive producer of SCEJ, claimed that Genji: Days of the Blade featured "famous battles which actually took place in Ancient Japan" The gameplay shown after he said this contained a "giant enemy crab", suggesting the game was based more on fantasy, rather than history. Some of the most popular quotes from the press conference were "You attack its weak point for massive damage" and "[...]Real-time[...]weapon change[...]".
Several games contain a reference to the presentation: Viva Piñata, Contact, Final Fantasy V (GBA), MotorStorm (demo), God Hand, Pokémon Diamond Version and Elite Beat Agents.
