You have to realize that Sony is a keiretsu - it's not one big company in the traditional sense, it's more a sort of financial network tying multiple companies together. Sony is over half a century old. Sony Computer Entertainment is not. They use the Sony brand to leverage a shared reputation into a new market, and to give exactly that illusion of "history" that doesn't really exist.I never said that, all I said was Sony have a history of good technology in the entertainment sector in regard to the argument of them having no 'history'.
Oh, I agree. Sony really doesn't care unless it affects the bottom line, and they're always coming up with new ways to make up for their shortcomings, just like any other company.I just don't see where all this slagging is going to get you, that's all. I can't imagine Sony cares less.
Well, what can I say? People tend to complain about things that affect them directly.Companies bring out products which can kill people through design flaws (cars, planes etc), so it seems a bit pointless to hate Sony because your console broke.
I've heard of more than a few laser diode failures with early units, but never a class action suit. Do you have a link with more info on this?Excyber you might want to add to your earlier comments that the 1st generation PS2 had a high failure rate after the first 6 months and it took a class action law suite to get them to ackowledge and finally fix the problems.
