Marketing delays PS3

Go figure

Now they just happen to be releasing the PS3 just before Christmas season, as if they wouldnt sell enough if they released something on time for once.

Yep, nothing like marketing ploys. One day that's gonna hurt a few companies.

I'm still pissed about the delays I'm having with Kawasaki over the ZX-14. They are about to lose a customer. First it was Feb. then Mar. and now April. All it's going to take it for them to delay it one more time and I think I'm gonna pass that thing up.

By the way - just get an XBox360 I think you will be happier.

Re: Marketing delays PS3

They're having technical trouble with the machine too. Lots of it.

Around the copyright part there's a rumor that Sony is trying to make the machine code the disc to the processor...disallowing people from selling used games.

That would rid them of that pesky rental business. Typical Sony.

Re: Marketing delays PS3

And ebay biz of used games.

If they do it, they'll sure as hell make Microsoft happy...and much more wealthy.

It's a rumor...but with sony, nobody would be surprised.

I find it difficult to believe that a company like Sony would be that incredibly stupid. They pull that bullshit and they can kiss their cash cow bye bye.

I think it's more about arrogance than stupidity.

If the XBox 360 wasn't such a contender, I'm sure this would happen.

Sony is having issues similar to those MS had, but Sony will delay release to solve their problems, where MS will work on them with products in the field.

I'm sure it will still have problems in November. The PS2 had problems.

And then there's this asshole...
