    Sony’s 83-year Plan to Reestablish Console Dominance

    Sony is on the cusp (in the glacial sense) of reemerging as the dominant home console maker with a hefty 21% gain in PS3 sales from May to June.

    If you don’t buy this console, we’ll kill this goat

    What can save Sony’s console franchise? A bacchanalian festival with decapitated goats and topless women! Unfortunately, not every consumer is on board with the new marketing strategy. Sony has recalled the 80,000 print run of its Playstation Magazine for an article about the “God of War II” European launch party. From Gizmondo: The article, based […]

    Groping Grouper
