Sony Staff Free Hostage Bosses After Pay Row in France

100°
281w ago - Something like this could only happen at Sony's "DAX" Technology Center... Sacked workers at a French Sony factory have freed two executives they had been holding hostage in an attempt to win a better severance deal.

To quote: Sony France chief executive Serge Foucher and human resources boss Roland Bentz were held overnight by the workers at the Pontonx-sur-l'Adour plant in southwest France.

The workers are trying to force the Japanese electronics giant to give them a payout in line with other French Sony plants that have shut.

"I am happy to be free and to see the light of day again," Mr Foucher said, before travelling with his former captors for a meeting with state and union representatives.

On Thursday the bosses had travelled to meet its 311 workers one last time before the closure of the factory on April 17.

COD 6: Hostage Multiplayer Game on Sony PS3 and XBox 360?

289w ago - We have read many ideas for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, some about the weapons and others about the game type's in multiplayer. One of the best ideas we would like to see is a hostage online game.

You could save your hostages from the other team before they get killed or something along those lines. Maybe even have the hostages have the option to try and escape from their captors.

Another great idea in COD 6: is to have the lobby for the Sony PS3 and Xbox 360 updated, especially on the PS3. When you go to find match it would be good to have it setup like this:

Find Match - Countries - Core/Hardcore - Game Modes

Playlists for different countries or regions should be added because people would rather be playing against people from their own country and have a good connection, other than being thrown into a random match with people from another country and have a bad connection.

Would you like a hostage game type in multiplayer and a choice of countries when finding a match? Comment below!
