Yikes: Sony, wrong numbers, and TMI for a 12 year old
A 12-year-old boy in Washington State got stuck in a particular level of the PlayStation 2 game Ratchet and Clank, so he called the tipline printed on the game disk and found he’d called a phone sex line, KNDO TV reports. “The number appears on multiple games, including top sellers like Hot Shots Golf, and a similar number on other games leads to the same service.” When the boy’s mom called Sony, the company said it hadn’t used that number for about two years and couldn’t be responsible for it.
I wasn’t going to pass this along… except for one thing. Isn’t Sony trying to buy Club Penguin (latest rumors aside)???
Seems awful irresponsible to me that a company looking to broaden its horizons by jumping into the U13 environment (granted, CP will only be a tiny portion to the conglomerate that IS Sony) doesn’t take responsibility for it’s products. Tsk tsk. Not good press indeed.
