Sony's Bad Day

Wow, Sony just can’t get it right. First, they release cd’s with copy protection. Then, the copy protection is found to install a rootkit. Then, they say it is no big deal. Then recently, they say they will stop using the copy protection and offer and uninstaller. Thing is, the uninstaller leaves security holes open on the machine.

And then too add fuel to the fire, there are rumors (which Sony denies) that they are going to create some kind of locking feature on game discs so they will only play on one console, etc.

I am very disappointed in Sony. I have a PS2, but I don’t know if I am going to get a PS2. XBox 360 and/or Nintendo Revolution is what I will probably go with when they come out.
