Via Kotaku: Kia is doing a cross-promotion in Spain with Playstation 3. As part of it they’ve got a website up showing what it’s like to drive a Kia in a PS3 driving game. Except — as an astute blogger noticed — the license plate on the little virtual Kia clearly says “PGR.” It’s a model from Project Gotham Racing 3, a title that is exclusive to the XBox 360. So in short they’re using XBox 360 graphics to promote the PS3…you get it. Unbelievable. Ha ha.

Extra bonus non-understanding: during a trial in London, involving men accused of inciting terrorism via the Internet, the judge admitted: “The trouble is I don’t understand the language. I don’t really understand what a Web site is.” Ha — wait, that’s kind of not that funny.
