Sony Pays For Fake Christmas Wishes – All I Want For Christmas Is A PSP
Why am I not surprised that Sony would pay for fake Christmas wishes on a website? Well, because nothing surprises me. Especially when the web is involved.
Sony just sank to the lowest of the lowest level. Sony hired marketing company Zipatoni to set up a viral marketing scheme, that company did this by registering the domain alliwantforxmasisapsp.com. This website is set up as a PSP fansite where the marketers with Sony’s approval pretend to be kids that want a PSP and posted a rap video titled “All I Want for X-mas Is A PSP”
Of course it gets better, with what else? Fake comments. Full story over at VideogamesBlogger.
False headlines, fake Diggs, fake comments and fake product reviews, and people wonder why some folks don’t want to buy on the web…
This is all part of a larger issue that I plan to have a post about next week.
