I mentioned this the other day – for whatever reason there is an overstated negativity towards Sony and the PS3 in gaming press. The author of Why do the press hate the Sony PlayStaion 3? cites numerous articles after the PS3 Slim and corresponding price drop were announced as examples of pure negative spin.
As you can see, the arrival of the PS3 Slim has done nothing to quell the fires of hatred from the gaming press. For reasons I can’t begin to fathom, fair and balanced journalism seems to have gone out the window when it comes to Sony, with many commentators treating the Nippon conglomerate with as much distaste as a sniffling swine flu victim. Just what has Sony done to tick you all off, exactly? Did Ken Kutaragi pee in your drinks? Did he punch you in the nose or steal your partner? Or is Sony simply an easy target to kick in the butt — like celebrity Tom Cruise or Star Wars character Jar Jar Binks?
This is a pretty good read, and interestingly enough the author claims to not own a PS3.
