It's apparent that heads over at CC are rolling to care this much. You gotta remember Sony is fighting 2 fronts here:
-Hi Def market, AKA format wars
I am sure they have some serious plans leading up to Black Friday and after Black Friday and don't want any more leaks like this again. IMO this was an inside job. Store ads usually comes weeks in advance and are usually UPS/Fedex/first class bulk mail and is addressed to the store manager (usually the case but depends on how the store is run) and, are keep in the store manager's office. My point is that they really do treat those ads with priority. It's not uncommon for regular employees to see them as it comes with the nature of the business.
