Sony marketing: We came, we saw, we stole your junk

Sony, let me break it down for you: You have an image problem. You continually f*ck up in the gaming public's eye. I'm here. I'm available. If you need someone with common sense to help you, then I am offering my common sense services. Why am I saying this? Well, it seems that Sony can't come up with their own images for their own games. They have to steal from Microsoft and the Xbox 360! From Major Nelson:

Until they fix it, you can see that clearly the main image used on Sony’s PSP Connect site to promote the Gran Turismo HD Preview was stolen borrowed from the Xbox 360 title Project Gotham Racing 3. You can find the original PGR3 shot they used over from Bizarre Creations here. 

It appears as Sony saw they were caught and quickly took it all down, but not before good ol' Major got a screenshot of the deed
