Breaking – Sony Shuts Down PlayStation Brand, Says Goodbye To Gaming

by Ernice Gilbert on April 1st, 2011, under Hot, News, Sony, Unbelievable

The unexpected has happened. What we never thought would be a story told is being written as we speak. Many will remember this day, the 1st day of April, 2011, as the saddest in gaming history. My friends, Sony’s decided to shut down all things PlayStation, as it says there’s been no profit in it, and has admitted to making a big mistake by including Blu-Ray in launch PS3s.

The company’s giving everyone 3 months to enjoy games on PSN, but has already started shutting down game studios, beginning with SOE.

Developers the world over are pleading with Sony to rethink this decision – even Microsoft’s offered the once electronic giant a loan of $2 billion, yet company exec Kaz Hirai’s said the decision is a final one.

No more PSN, no more game studios, all the PS4 talk has been rubbish, and today, my friends, the industry has lost its greatest company.

A report on ArsTechnica’s claiming that Sony’s “the biggest spy ever”, with the company collecting every piece of information it receives. From the controllers you’re using, to what USB devices are plugged in.

Michael Pachter Doesn’t Give A Crap About Us Gamers, His Insults Are Unacceptable

Who does this guy think he is? Gamers Voice decided to report Activision to the UK ’s Office of Fair Trade over prevalent issues in the PC and PS3 versions of Black Ops, a good move I must say, but analyst Michael Pachter comes out and liken the group’s actions to something a “cry baby” would do.

Oh really? So we should just take any crap the greedy conglomerates feed us? Pachter, you’re not welcomed here, you remind me of the greedy investors who call Wall Street their home.

The man actually got into a war of words with the advocacy group, then he went on to speak of the “overweight” gaming population in a very unnerving manner.
