Forums - Music Discussion - Sony BMG caught producing fake views

I can spin this.

Sony is only doing this for the good of their fanbase. It's just like advertising, giving Sony more exposure.
More people know means more customers that will find more people sharing what they like.
It's win-win. Sony should be praised.

It's not fake guys, we had a thread about in vgc, they tagged smash bros, nothing is wrong with that though, this is THE PROPER way to get views. Fans just blew out of proportion because you know.... that's they roll.

This is nothing new with Sony. They have been playing dirty tricks with fake reviews in the past and have admitted to it and paying fines in multiple countries.

That's the reason I take Sony movies, musics and games reviews with a grain of salt.


can company get sued over this

I think they paid a settlement but not 100% sure.



Okay, Sony did this for movies and they did this for music - what makes you think they did not do this for games?



Imagine not having GamePass on your console...

What makes you think reviewers are not part of the advertising machine? I am sure Sony paid reviewers for marketing reasons... but so did everyone else.



Despicable.



To be honest, it makes no difference to me so it's not something I'll complain about.

The only annoyance I generally find is when you have music videos on Youtube that you cannot view in your region yet you can find them in the search. It's just stupid.



fake, fix your title op or i will report it for trolling
