Today Sony Computer Entertainment announced that it is essential that they release the upcoming Playstation 4 console before Microsoft's next console, the Xbox 720, in order to stay competitive in the gaming market. Among the strategies they are considering is the use of time travel.
"It's not unheard of," says a Sony representative. "It is widely known, or suspected greatly, that most of the Republican candidates have used this technology to aid their campaign. Their outdated attitudes and views of history prove that."
If the time travel idea is approved, plans are to return to 2011, complete production, then release the console as early as next week. "Of course, once consumers purchase the console, they will have to download all of the updates that we created in 2011, to bring it up to today's standards," one insider disclosed. Other sources say that the number of updates could be upwards of 28 or so.
Sony admits that they still haven't quite figured out all of the possible problems associated with their time travel scenario, but assures people that "our best technicians and programmers have studied the movie Back to the Future to cover all possibilities".
"And," the Sony representative added, "the 'flux capacitor' not only works, but may be a key component to our as yet announced smart phone."
