Sony talks sh*t about 3DS technology

So, Nintendo murdered everyone at E3, not just with its rather terrifying selection of awesome games, but with its stunning 3DS demonstration. If you haven't seen the thing in action, let me confirm that it's pretty amazing stuff. Sony boss...

Sony bullsh*t: PSPgo was a 'test'

The PSPgo was an ill-advised, expensive, worthless waste of space. This is scientific, objective fact that can be proven in any court of law. But apparently it's alright, because it was just a test. In fact, even though the PSPgo fell flat ...

Sony: Core gamers 'look down their nose' at Wii

With PlayStation Move gearing up for launch this year, Sony is pushing out the boat to try and make us forget that it's basically copying the Wii. The best way to do that, of course, is the imply that the Wii ruined motion control for every...

Dear Sony: Put Tomba! on PSN ... NAOW!

Dear Sony, I have just remembered that Tomba! exists. If you don't remember the game (and we could hardly blame you), it was a sidescrolling adventure starring a troll-like creature with pink hair and a hatred of evil pigs. Anyone who remem...

PSP comes both first and last on sales chart, PSPgo fails
