Sony: The Poor Fat Kid That No One Dances WithPosted on May 10th, 2006 2 comments
Botswana at Unfettered Blather (one of my favorite blogs, I might add) reminds us that Sony is only doing what any of us would do in their situation. Well, regarding motion controlled gaming, anyways.
Yeah, I’ve been kind of saying the same thing. Everyone wants to hate Sony. It feels pretty good to hate them sometimes, because they so often patronize us (gamers). But yeah, motion controlled gaming seems to be the wave of the future (to use an overused cliche).
I also think it’s hilarious that Sony executives were ripping on Microsoft for having multiple SKU’s and then Sony decides… to have… multiple SKU’s. That’s just too funny.
Anyway, Sony reeks of being the company desperately trying to keep up with the awesomeness of “next gen” gaming, only to constantly trip over their own bulbous feet.
Update: Uh oh. Ubisoft is displeased with Sony’s “me too” attitude.
Oh let’s not forget that they ripped on Nintendo over motion sensitive controllers as well. They’ve basically turned around and done everything that they’ve mocked their competition for doing.
But remember –
“Microsoft is still not black belt!”
I think Sony is just trying to hard. When you’re that big of a corporation, you get a lot of haters. It happens in every industry I think. People like the underdogs.
