Posted on May 25, 2007, Jonathan Video of God of War 2's Infamous Press Party: Starring a Decapitated Goat
Awhile back, it was all over the internet how Sony had promoted God of War 2 with a press party in Greece that featured lots of female flesh and one hapless and headless goat. Well, a video has showed up over at Daily Motion that chronicles some of what actually went on at the infamous event. It seems the main part of the even involved a competition where reporters were invited to partake in a series of party game-like challenges. These challenges included a pin-the-knife on the enemy warrior game, a touch-the-snake game, and a drink-the-goat-soup game. That last one is where the decapitated farm animal came in. Sony claims they simply bought the goat that way; but even if that is true, it’s still a rather odd way to promote a video game.
