What would be less annoying. Tilting my head and straining my eyes to read through this or opening photoshop just to flip this image?

This would have been slightly more humourous if Sony had followed up with another email stating they’d had some physics issues, and resending the email the right way up. In its current form this was more like doing a stand-up joke with no prep for the hecklers.

That’s stupid. I bet who thought it up was well pleased with himself.

It is dumb, but whatever…it got Jim’s attention for sure.

It seems a little strange that people are taking this so seriously. It makes me feel like the Jimquisition shtick might have gotten out of hand.

If you seriously think that Sony are a bunch of dicks or that they can get fucked for doing this, you need to get a fucking grip.

For promotional material, this would probably be alright, but for official correspondence to inform a critic on policies and procedures for the review copy, pretty terrible. Imagine this for a professor Layton game, having to solve a puzzle so you can find your voucher code, streaming guidelines, etc. It’d make a great ad, but a terrible business PR email.

Guess sony hates paper. Only way to read this is either A print the email out or B use the resolution setting on your PC to flip you desktop. Yeah this was a bad idea!

Yeah, this is obnoxious. There are ways of fixing it, of course but frankly those aren’t worth the effort it would take to read a bunch of marketing drivel.

Consider this: to most potential customers, all advertising is an intrusion at best. If given the option we all tend to block it. Therefor, if you’re going to make an advertisement you should do everything in your power to not come off as a load of irritating bullshit.

You know, at first, I was a little pissed at Jim, because I was like,”Jim, why the fuck did you turn this upside down just for a joke. This is really hard to read.” It took a little too long for me to realize it was Sony who did it, not Jim. Now I get it. Shame on you, Sony.

Good Lord… I think that’s really nice.
I love when some things break out of their monotonous standards, so it’s more like real people with a sense of humor are behind this, instead of a roboter.
And to flip it, you don’t need 500,-€ software or more than 30 seconds.
Someone had a nice little idea, and suddenly, a wild Jim appeared who forgot his medicine this morning and is annoyed by everything…

You’re exaggerating. Just export the email, print it on paper, hang it on the wall and read it while doing a handstand. Have some common sense! /s

I mean, I find it fun. I can see how it’s anoying, especially if you have large batches of PR bullshit to sift through. Jim, if you read this, would you rather that all PR is simple, non-gimicky letters or that is it okay if it has some non-intrusive flare? Hopefully I’ll have to send you some in the future 🙂

I get how it can be annoying, but you can very easily turn the image upside-up again. But I get it. I’d be annoyed too.

Also, it’s not so hard to read: export it to pdf, turn it 180º and Bob’s your uncle.
