“The scope of the layoffs appears to indicate a studio shut-down.”

As confirmed by Sony on Friday, March 30 2012:

“The closure is a result of a normal cycle of resource re-alignment within SCE Worldwide Studios.” -Playstation Mag

    This is a beautiful bag. Unfortunately, it will pick up any oils from your hands, body, etc, as well as mark in an intnast. I wanted this bag for travel as it has multiple pockets and is an excellent size for documents as well as an ipad, and wallet, but the color is not practical for that purpose. The material is as soft as butter and it lays well crossbody. The return process was flawless, and I will not hesitate to purchase this brand again.. just not in chamois.
