Sony Demonstrates Anti-360 Propaganda

Sony Demonstrates Anti-360 Propaganda

Published On November 25, 2005 | By Russ Clow | News

1UP has allegedly found evidence of a wholly owned Sony subsidiary, Koyeo, actually encouraging its employees to smear Microsoft’s Xbox 360 by spreading ridiculous rumors about faulty and overheating units.

According to 1UP, “Project Light Flame” has seen Koyeo pay its third party employees to actually motivate abusive views about the console. We would understand if some hardcore Sony fans decided to engage in similar activity, but Sony is a large and respected company. If proven to be true, Sony may find itself at the center of a harmful legal battle before the Playstation 3 is even released.

With the launch of the Playstation 3 is slipping farther away, Sony can be expected to step up its anti-Xbox 360 marketing, however this is illegal propaganda and it has surprised many of us.

No response has been heard yet from Microsoft or Sony about this matter. We’ll keep you updated.
