What's New (15th June, 2007)

New PAL releases.

Sony has come under increasing fire this week after it emerged that you can't see my house from here in photo-realistic racing action game The Getaway.

"It's ridiculous. You can't see my house from here," I told Eurogamer exclusively. "It's supposed to be a game set in London and you can't see my house from here - that's ridiculous."

And, in a stunning state of affairs, it turns out you can't see my house from here in a number of other Sony-manufactured products, including walkmans, walkmen, whelkmans and Ellie's Bravia TV.

What's New's "stunning" correspondent Trendy McZeitgeist agrees: "It is ridiculous that you can't see my house from here in The Getaway and a number of other Sony-manufactured products - who TOTALLY hate each other, and really deserve to be able to see my house from here after all she's been through."

Sony issued a statement this morning revealing that they take not being able to see my house from here in The Getaway "very seriously". "We take not being able to see my house from here in The Getaway very seriously," the statement said.

"Not only do we take it very seriously, but we want to meet with my house to explore in more detail the issues leading to not being able to see my house from here in The Getaway, which we take very seriously," the statement concluded.

"P.S. I'm not sure you can see my house from here in The Getaway either, which we will also be taking very seriously," the statement added.

The surprising age of The Getaway is not thought to be a significant factor in not being able to see my house from here's ability to drive eight paragraphs of a column with which it has nothing to do.

"If anything, the surprising age of The Getaway not being thought a significant factor in not being able to see my house from here's ability to drive eight paragraphs of a column with which it has nothing to do isn't surprising," McZeitgeist confirmed.

"If anything, none of this is surprising, and it's only surprising that nobody's pointed out I don't live in London any more," McZeitgeist added, before fleeing the scene in the direction of my house, or where he thought my house was, although actually since you can't see my house from here it's not entirely clear where he's gone.
