Sony 'Move' continues company tradition of metrosexual lifestyle shots

Three cheers to Sony for promoting metrosexual gaming

Sony Move

Nobody can deny that Sony is a trailblazer when it comes to technological innovation -- from the PSX onwards, the company has continually shaped the future of gaming. What might be less obvious is that they are also pioneers of homoerotic imagery in game advertising. No really.

For the past few years, Sony has continually used clean-cut, androgynous pretty boys with swishy clothes and designer stubble to promote the PlayStation brand – a bold move for which the company should be commended. The first press release for the PlayStation Move continues this fine tradition: it features a non-threatening metrosexual offering his sex toy to the gamer. (Or maybe it's the PlayStation Move; it's hard to tell from a distance.)

Sony, you are true liberals. Bless.

Here's our selection of Sony's buff boys who happen to love gaming too!

Where not sure what this guy is so excited about -- at the time of the advertisement, there were precisely no PSP games worth playing.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
