Sony Trademarks "Shock And Awe" For Video Game

from the ugh dept

dorpus wrote in to let us know that Sony has apparently trademarked the phrase “shock and awe” for use in a video game. Realizing that the war is unpopular in Europe, Sony says they might not release the game there. Seems fairly over-the-top in terms of cashing in on a war, but these days it really isn’t that surprising. Maybe next war we can expect corporate sponsors? “This smart bomb brought to you by McDonalds.”
