Slaughter: Horror at Sony's depraved promotion stunt with decapitated goat

The Daily Mail reports that Sony's bizarre PR campaigns may of finally crossed the line when the corpse of the decapitated animal was the centrepiece of a party to celebrate the launch of the God Of War II game for the company's PlayStation 2 console.

Sony has said that "It has come to our attention that at the God Of War II launch showcase, an element of the event was of an unsuitable nature. We are conducting an internal inquiry into aspects of the event in order to learn from the occurrence and put into place measures to ensure that this does not happen again."

Its a fvcking goat. Who cares, go back to eating your meat.

You, my friend...are a [email protected] moron. You must've been born through @ss to write comments like those. A decapitated goat? This really shows how desperate Sony are for some real next gen games.

Come on Bigmac, this just wrong. Decapitated goats!? that's just fvcked up. Not good publicity in my opinion

Topless girls, live snakes, eating food from decapitated animals.

Don't know about you lot, but that sounds like my idea of a party!

when Ken leaves office?.........I gotta say,this has no taste, fanboys or not, aside. If I had kids, that's not the kind of marketing I want, that would make them purchase a game. A little kid might be horrified..come on you don't need this..

The world has becomed more sensitive to animal cruelty, global warmings and such..so if there was a backlash I can see why. When I seen this I wasn't thinking a video game. Just because it's a Mature game still doesn't mean mature people are insensitive to animal cruelty. Well at least in this marketing fashion.

I mean, people eat meat everyday, but who wants to go to a farm and see Cattle get chopped up from the neck down.(ofcourse I'am not a vegetrian, but that doesn't mean every gamer mature or not, is a meat eater.

This would scare the hell out of my kids, but I doubt there were any kids at the launch party.

I wonder if PETA has heard about this yet? They would have a field day.

TheExecutive3651d ago

but GOW isnt for the kids anyway. They really shouldnt be playing that game or going to the parties... still kinda crazy i guess

Take your kids to Iraq to see some real horror.

Blackmoses3651d ago

why would you take your kids to a launch party with scantily dressed women all over in the first place? The goat, yeah it may have been in bad taste but I'm sure that grown ass'd adults were there to see all that could be seen. It would be no place to take a child in the first place. Idiotic comment! If you were going to take them there you might as well take them to the strip joint.
Stop trying to make the situation worse than it really is....

God of War II is not a kids game and if you were a responsible parent or adult you wouldn't let your kid play this game.
