I think many readers will agree that The Inquirer sums up this story quite nicely with the title ‘Sony finally goes mad’. At the God of War II launch showcase, Sony has managed to pile yet more controversy onto itself by inviting members of the press to reach inside a warm goat’s carcass to eat offal (internal organs) from its stomach (although the offal itself was prepared beforehand). Not only did Sony arrange this grotesque ‘sacrifice’ for the event, but it then went on to publish it in the Official PlayStation Magazine. Guests were encouraged to compete to see who could eat the most offal, whilst other activities such as topless girls dipping grapes into guests’ mouths, throwing knives at targets and pulling live snakes from pits were all on the agenda.

Are you kidding me? This is the kind of sh** you can't just make up.....



Whoever thought of it should be fired and jailed. I don't see how a publicity stunt could be any worse in terms of how it was intended.

It hadn't been dead for long - the source suggests that it was still warm because it had only just been slaughtered.

It is one of those stories, but I think it's genuine. Obviously news papers aren't always true, but this would be quite a bit of effort when they could start any old rumor.

I don't see what's so wrong about this. If the goat was slaughtered humanely, there should be no outrage. If it wasn't slaughtered humanely, we should probably throw the people out in the hot sun on a fire ant hill, and cut off their eyelids so they have to stare at the sun until they die. Obviously, that's the solution.

I see something very wrong about this. I just cant believe, and I dont want to believe, Sony was behind this. Its sad really. There is a difference between walking a fine line and stepping way the hell over into insanity.

It doesn't matter if it was slaughtered humanely or not - just like, it doesn't matter if someone slaughters your mother humanely or not. An animal was slaughtered to try to boost sales for Sony. This isn't the fKing dark age. They prob didn't even use the animal to eat - just to fist it's holes - that's fcked up and completely unnecessary.
