How Sony killed its brand

Have decided to bump this video up to the top again (originally posted in February) as tonight Sony finally release the PS3.

Until the HD format war is over it's not worth buying a PS3 IMHO.

And guess what?

bluray is a none starter coz just like with video, they have refused to work with the porn industry, unlike HD-DVD.

Their similar refusal with Betamax killed it stone dead vs VHS as porno drives growth in all new entertainment categories

And it looks like the European version may not be properly backwards compatible.

Short answer: Yes.

Long answer: Yes they have, Sony are complete idiots and only have themselves to blame.

I've been a gamer for over 20 years and have seen some stupid things in my time (Powerglove anyone?) but Sony take the piss. Their control freakery over their properiety hardware has constantly retarded their success.

They get a good idea, do well with it then stifle it.
