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

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.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

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.
