Spare a thought for the insolvent Irish. Not knowing what to do with the copious amounts of money that poured into the country when the likes of Facebook, Amazon and Google set up shop in the fabled green land of awesome Guinness, saints and scholars, the fools that we are went and blew it all on underground tunnels no one can now afford to use and make-up for our fearless leader. (True story)
Sony to the rescue of the Dublin mendicants, with news today that Sony Ireland (yep, there’s a Sony Ireland, their offices are actually quite nice) have hidden twelve PlayStation bundles around the capital. From the press release:
From early this morning through to Friday afternoon, people are advised to keep their eyes peeled as PlayStation Christmas gift boxes will be dropped at twelve random locations around Dublin city centre.
It’s what’s inside that counts though, as those lucky enough to claim one of the boxes will win the entire contents. Prizes include PlayStation 3 consoles, PlayStation Move Starter Packs, PSPs and a selection of fantastic PlayStation games.
What better way to get into the spirit of Christmas than with a new PlayStation console to show off to family and friends!
PlayStation is remaining tight lipped as to the exact location of this gift drop. However, you can log onto the PlayStation Ireland Facebook page, www.facebook.com/SonyPlayStationIreland, where clues to the twelve locations will be shared. After that it’s up to you to figure out where the next PlayStation gift will be dropped and make sure you’re there to try and claim your prize.
Thanks Sony! Anything you can do about €85 billion we now owe the ECB and IMF? I’d like my kids to not have to work in a bog down in Tipperary for fifteen hours a day in order to pay it off, if at all possible.
