    My mate personally created the music for some Playstation games. Earned himself a decent wedge, and saved Sony millions from not having to pay some kind of contractor.

    Suuuure do. :)

    Lead games designer for Bioshock lectures at my college.

    I've met the crew from IGN Australia numerous times.

    I've met Ted Price and Cliffy B.

    Mate from college's bro is head of Sony's Marketing division, and got another mate from college to 'star' in the new SONY Japan ads, which looks hideously gay.

    Err...think thats about it off the top of my head.
