May 17, 2007 - Earlier this year (http://news.teamxbox.com/xbox/12628/Sony-to-Publish-PGR-3-as-Gran-Turismo-4/) Sony was caught using a screenshot of Microsoft's Project Gotham Racing 3 (http://xbox360.ign.com/objects/741/741362.html) to promote Gran Turismo 4. When the accident was pointed out, Sony quickly removed the shot and replaced it with a proper still of GT4. But it looks like Sony may not have learned from the mistake, as TeamXbox (http://news.teamxbox.com/xbox/13524/Sony-Using-PGR-3-to-Promote-the-PlayStation-3-Again/) has found the company apparently using PGR3 to promote its products again.

Sony is running a promotion with Kia automobiles in Spain, and the Website for the tie-in was seen blatantly displaying a screenshot featuring a Ferrari with a PGR-branded license plate. The shot has again been removed and replaced with a car from Ridge Racer, but not before TeamXbox did a screen capture:

Sony must be ashamed of Gran Turismo HD.

A title that they will not profit from, why should they be proud of it?

That said, whoever made those mistakes are pretty disconnected from reality. I would be really pissed if I were the one paying for that kind of marketing...

I'm hoping the new guy at the helm of Sony will fix these issues because this is just.....embarrassing.
