Sony reminds me of "politicians" these days (at least the ones we have here in Australia...). They have this concept that if they never "admit" they screwed up on something - or tell the truth - that people will just ignore the lies and mistruths, and let it all fall to the wayside. Gamers (especially) seem to hate arrogance - something both MS & Nintendo have picked up on. I get the feeling both those companies are happy to admit mistakes, and tell the truth - at least some times. Sony needs to drop this BS attitude they have, and come back into the "real" world, where gamers are real people - not MORONS. Some of the comments they should be making are: - "We have a long way to go before we catch up to Xbox Live" - "We love Nintendo's controller, and it inspired us to add tilt control" - "We dropped rumble because of licensing and related costs - not for technical issues" - "The CELL hasn't been as successful or powerful as we hoped - and it delayed development" - "The PS3 is quite expensive, and we are SORRY for this. We hope to reduce the price as soon as possible" ...etc...

PR people make my head hurt. I did think it was interesting he described motion detection as a "next-gen" feature when their competitor has superior technology in this area by far, not to mention their use of it was copied from their competitor and tacked on.

SSBB Friend Code = 5455-9050-8670 (PM me if you add so I can add you!)
Tetris Party Friend Code = 116129046416 (ditto)
Another thing, I don't understand this concept of not excepting things last gen. Doesn't that mean there is not point in backwards compatibility.
I haven't, please inform me.
Sony dropped the Emotion Engine from the PS3 so now all Backwards Compatibility is handled through emulation ... They have already said that some games will no longer work by are unwilling to give a list until the PS3 launches in Europe. Their reluctance to produce a list has many people thinking that the compatibility will be similar to that of the XBox 360 ... Barbie Horse Adventures for everyone ...
I'm really looking foward to Barbie Horse Adventures. Ok, now what's an emulator. I hear about it all the time, but am very sure that I have never worked with/used it. My guess it's some kind of program, I don't know. How does work with a system/game?
