Sony Has Lost The List Of PS4 Contest Winners
Kotaku has reported that a list of winners for a contest held in Japan recently by Sony was accidentally erased.
Customers in Japan who purchased any PlayStation branded device between December 4th and January 15 supposedly had access to a calender with a code that would enter the user to win one of the limited quantity 20th Anniversary PlayStation 4 systems.
With the news of this going widespread, Sony issued a very short yet sincere apology:
“Our deepest apologies for the trouble we have caused to those who entered the previous campaign,” Sony wrote on their website.
Sony is giving every person affected an opportunity to re-enter for the contest by sending in every piece of information they can think of, including console serial numbers and their home address.
Sony at this time has not released exactly how the list got deleted.
