He can't appear in any video game related ads for 2 more years, and even after that has to run them by Sony and get their "O.K" first to make sure he isn't acting like Kevin Butler, who is owned by Sony.

Sony always wins baby?

Why was this guy put up front as one of the faces to sell Sony's product in the first place?!

This is stupid a company shouldn't be able to control someone who isn't working for them anymore and he was in a commercial for tiers! This ruling was a joke.

I still don't know what the big deal was considering that SONY WASN'T EVEN USING HIM.

Kevin Butler was completely non-existent for the whole of 2012, so I really don't understand why Sony got so up in arms about it.

It was primarily because he appeared in a Nintendo ad.

He appeared in multiple billboards, and even in LittleBigPlanet games in 2012.
