Why does Sony let this happen?

10 replies 15 views Edited Mar 26, 2009
Why do they let rumors get so out of hand? I dont really give a **bleep** about the update but wat pisses me off is that a sony rep hasnt come out and said that the update isnt happening this week. its stuff like this that **bleep**s sony up. people hear about this damn rumor so much that they start thinking that its true and then if its not released by the end of the week they get pissed just because sony couldnt say that the patch will not be released this week. it is the peoples fault for believeng the rumor but its also sony's for not coming out and denying it. I love sony and i have owned all of their consoles (ps, ps2, ps3, psp) but this is a mistake on their part.

Sony comments on every otherrumor, so why not this? All it does is confuses the consumers. With this strategy, by the time it comes out no one will care.


My observation has purpose, hence I am here.

Unless sony confirms anything, i treat everything as a rumor. besides it wasn't too long ago we got 2.6. and they do not release semi-major updates on a monthly basis. if there was a major issue with 2.6, you would have seen 2.62 or something like that. it will typically take a few months to go from 2.6 to 2.7.

You are out of your mind if you think that more than 5% of PS3's install base even keeps track of firmware rumors. Most people who own a PS3 never see a message board or internet gaming site. They just buy the thing, buy the games and play. Get a grip.

 Your right most people don't care about firmware rumors of visit the forums. But the "5%" people that do are Sony's most loyal customers and the most vocal. All this rumor is doing is hurting Sony and making their customers who do visit the forums disappointed. I know that 2.70 was a rumor and will eventually be release, but no date had been given. If Sony just gave us a date this giant hype machine would die down a bit and Sony wouldn't have to live up to hype of a fictional features list and firmware rumors.

How is it Sonys fault for rumors. If you want to put blame, blame all the great "gaming news sites" for treating it like it was straight from Sonys mouth when really it was from some troll on another forum that started all this.
