Sony GDC Party Invite: Arrives Late; Is Definitely Not Biodegradable


I picked up my mail on Saturday morning after taking the red eye home from GDC only to discover an invitation to the PlayStation party--an event that had happened three days earlier. The invitation is more than a little indulgent (and is more typical of Sony's largess prior to the folly of the PS3). It's a big piece of plexiglass cut into the shape of a cartoon word balloon with the event details carefully etched into it. Not only did this arrive days after the event--it's not Sony's fault; the U.S. Postal Service apparently sent it on a wild ride--this is also officially the least-practical, most over-produced party invitation in history.
