Dear Sony,

Well played, Sony. Neck-beardy multi-computer using "Rumor Monger" guy asks for a comment on a PlayStation 3 price drop in a new television and web spot. That's supposed to be us, right? Cute. And the "Director of Rumor Confirmation?" That's also cute. Real cute.

The new TV spot is funny, Sony. And I see where you're going with this whole "It Only Does Everything" campaign. Games, movies, downloads -- yeah, we get it. It's a cool new way to come at us with your skinny new 120GB system. This is way better than the creepy white room commercials from a few years back.

We hear that there are nine more ad spots coming this year. Interesting. I saw that other one -- that one with the "VP of Enough is Enough." You're taking the informational route, eh? Nice. Also funny. My only advice to you is to not put too much focus on the extras. People out there need to know that this machine plays videogames, and good ones. You keep changing your focus. Mixing it up is good, but don't forget about the games.

Sincerely, 

Dale North

P.S. - Good move on ditching that silly Spiderman font.

Pre-order Destiny at the Microsoft store, get a $10 gift card

Destiny is nearly upon us. Whether the hype was warranted is completely up in the air (no one has a copy yet as servers are not live), but if you're taking the plunge now regardless, you have another option -- the Microsoft S...more
