Dead Goats Are Not Cool: Sony Apologizes For Using Freshly Slaughtered Goat At Video Game Release Party

<!–deadgoat.jpg–>Here’s the best idea ever: Get a slaughtered goat and use it as a prop at a release party for God of War II. Then, take pictures of the bloody carcass and put them in Official PlayStation Magazine. Oh wait, no. That’s not actually a very good idea at all.

The recently slaughtered goat in question was used as some sort of prop at an Athen’s release party for the game God of War II, (in which there is content that is somehow complimented by recently deceased goats.) According to the Daily Mail, “guests competed to see who could eat the most offal – procured elsewhere and intended to resemble the goat’s intestines – from its stomach.” Ew. The party also featured topless girls who fed grapes into guest’s mouths and various knife throwing activities.

Sony has apologized for the stunt and is recalling copies of the magazine sent to stores. If you’re a subscriber you’ve already got the issue, or, since the Daily Mail was so truly outraged by the photo, they’ve generously reproduced it for you. —MEGHANN MARCO
