Have you joined my incredibly non-annoying, once-in-a-while email newsletter?
The UK’s Daily Mail is talking about how Sony, after apparently smoking WAY too much crack, decided that it would be smart to promote the launch of a new violent video game by having a FRESHLY SLAUGHTERED GOAT at their launch party, as well as inviting people to reach inside the “still warm” goat and eat offal from its stomach.
Sony is ALREADY the number one target for violence in video games – I know – I used to rep GameWEEK Magazine – Try handling crisis comms for GameWEEK at e3 a week after Columbine… This is just brutally stupid.
Oh, and also? It’s really freaking CRUEL. You don’t kill animals to sell video games.

Not cool. It should be fun as hell to watch Sony crawl out of this..
