Comment Re:Why do you buy Sony products? (Score 1) 291

I love this flawed argument. It would be one thing if we were talking about Sony washing machines or appliances and I could just boycott them and buy a competitors, but we are talking about the PS3 here. While there is some degree of competition in that market it is not to the degree of most markets. You will not get the same experience on a XBox (and by your logic we should boycott them as well...) and definitely not on a Wii. Your only choice is to keep playing, or live without. Some people can do the latter, whereas I choose to just not buy things and wait till games are GOTY or I swap games.

I love the fact that no one seems to remember that the whole "test ban treaty" against nukes in space is what made the funding dry up, in turn killing this project. I'm sure if we could do it today there would be money put to it. It doesn't matter if you have all the money in the world, you can't do the impossible.

Some people have a great ambition: to build something that will last, at least until they've finished building it.
