no it has a good deal with the internet actually. To many fanboys dissing the PS3 when most of what they say isnt true and people of lessor knowledge of the consoles doesnt know if its fact or fiction what the person is saying.

And the internet differentiates from the regular populace how, exactly? If people are saying it on the internet, they're saying it in real life, too. Sony and the PS3 are leaving the populace with a bad taste in their mouths right now, internet or no.

The problem with the Internet is that it makes information more readily available and it spreads more quickly.  So if someone wants to do some research on why not to spend $599 on a device they're looking at, they can find plenty of reasons right away.

And if people are psyched about a competing product, that can be discovered quickly as well.  Sony would like to stop that flow of information and retain their stronger brand which took years to build.
