Sony: MS copy everything we do

I expect a full and complete list of all the 'homages' to NIntendo's hardware that Sony have produced over the years. ;)

"We seem to. Every time we go down a path, we look behind and they're right there - we just can't shake these guys. I wish that they would come up with some strategies of their own, but they seem to be going down the path of everything we do. If you look at their strategy in other business areas as well, they tend to do that."

I wish Sony would stop bitching. They get into super-shit-slinging mode in the months leading up to the launch of any new system of theirs, and it strikes me as being scarily unprofessional.

Ms are STILL doing it 7 months after they launched , so its hardly one sided.

Nintendo were pretty scathing to sony about the psp too

I just wish they would ALL shut up. It makes all of them look like prats. NO exception

doesn't anyone ever interview these guys? Surely someone would ask?

They do ask, but then the Sony representative baffles the interviewer with a statement that's even more rediculous than the previous one: "You won't need a PC anymore" etc. etc.

That's quite odd. Why do people keep going on about shoulder buttons? They were on the SNES a long time before Sony used them. Then there's Sony Live style service, online marketplace, the connectivity of a handheld to a main console, wireless pads, 2 SKUs, silver trim on the premium SKU, hard drive, motion controllers, trigger buttons... all ideas from other companies.

It's not so much that they are using other people's ideas, I mean, who cares when it leads to a better console, but it just seems bizarre that they then accuse others of copying them.

The ps3 pad is a dual shock though. Dual shock 3, sans rumble and including 3 wario twisted carts at different angles.

But the main problems with the dual shock were that the analogue sticks had massive d(amage)ead zones, slippery surfaces, and it lacked triggers, or buttons with any 'travel' to them. We already know the triggers problem is sorted now, and for all we know the sticks could be more sensitive and easier to use. You can't say they aren't yet, because you haven't tried it. The only remaining problem we know for sure isn't fixed (from the pictures, at least) is the convex surfaces of the sticks.

It could be very nearly perfect.

this isnt actually true, those dead zones are written in software as decreed by sony guidelines. the hardware is capable of using the entire movement of the sticks but it never does.

the 360 pad annihalates the playstation design in every way

That can't be true.

In fact, using the PS2 pad with PC games proves that it isn't.

Except for the d-pad. ;)
