Someone has been vandalizing buildings in San Francisco, New York, L.A. and Chicago with similar images of characters playing with their PSPs. There's speculation that Sony is supporting the vandalism because the characters are similar and the quality of the artwork is good.
However, Sony denies any connection to the graffiti (and rightly so"? supporting it would be illegal). In our view, aside from the illegality, this would be a strange campaign for Sony to support because most of the characters playing with their PSPs look hypnotized (dare we say 'stoned"??).
