Sony Giving Away Xbox 360s

Sony BMG, a 50/50 joint venture between Bertelsmann and Sony (makers of the Playstation 3) is running a giveaway to promote Jessica Simpson’s new album, A Public Affair. Enter your info and you could win a copy of her new album and an Xbox 360.

Anyone see the silliness here? Sony giving away a product that it is betting the future of the company to defeat? I didn’t even realize it at the time, but Jessica Simpson is the Xbox Artist of the Month, yet a Sony artist. Either Sony doesn’t care what Sony BMG does, since it only owns half, or it isn’t thinking straight. You don’t giveawy competitor’s products! When was the last time Apple held a giveaway for a Windows Media Center PC, or Ford handed someone the keys to a new Corvette?
