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!

We're pretty sure this guy was in Depeche Mode

The tongue really isn't needed in this pic.

Eyes on the game, fellas...

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

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
