Sessler's Soapbox: Bad Fortune

So, apparently a group of stuffed shirts from Fortune Magazine, who normally spend all their time counting the gold duccats stashed away inside their goblin vaults, have decided to ping Sony with 2 of the 101 Dumbest Moments in Business for 2007. In this week's Sessler's Soapbox, Adam addresses the issue and suggests that maybe it's time to give Sony a break. He also ponders why Fortune editors think they know anything about the gaming industry. What do you think? Is Fortune right about Sony? Let G4 know what you think in the comments section, or share your thoughts in G4 forums.

The story is too old to be commented.

although i dont agree to any company uses religious places to make their violence, but as he said the church did many terrible things in the long past, so h ow come they complain now about the game and not of what where doing in the past? because of them the west became not religious nations!
i think both sony and the church has the right in their cause, some Christians even make fun of Jesus, so why wouldnt someone just use the church? again holy places shouldnt be involve in such things but in the west religion is not a big deal!

I'm not sure I agree with you there, my friend. (didn't hit disagree though)

You tell them Adam. As a matter a fact isn't there a game out that is about trying to stop a major event that was caused by the same people of that faith, oh yeah Assassins Creed. Adam is the coolest guy on G4.

The manchester cathedral thing was so ridiculous, to call it out as a bad move on Sony's part just shows how little they were actually paying attention to what was really happening. And the goat thing? As dumb as it was on everyone's part, including Sony and their (now hopefully former) PR company behind it, it wasn't as bad as the rumours and other hearsay made it out to be.
I can think of other business mistakes Sony made that didn't get nearly as much media play because they weren't as sensational, but stuff that a magazine like Fortune should have actually picked up on.
