Absurd Sony Headlines This Week |

I keept my tab on many news sources throughout the week so I know what’s going on in the world of Sony and PlayStation 3. In the course of doing so, I find some absurd headlines that just don’t make sense, are trying to be sensationalistic to grab eyeballs, or whatever. I’ve compiled a few that I’ve seen this week. Can you guess why each of these are ludicrous?

  • MS Chief ‘Flattered’ by Sony’s Homage
  • Sony CEO Predicts Blu-ray Win
  • Panasonic Blu-ray player to beat PS3 to market
  • Can Sony Do HDMI?
  • Round 1 to Microsoft
  • Sony refuses to show off PS3 HDMI
  • Sony calls it quits for PSone
  • Hollywood’s UMD support dwindling — Blu-ray next?
  • Black Guy

    “Hollywood’s UMD support dwindling — Blu-ray next?”

    iSaw that 1, iDin’t even bother w/ it. Just the headline alone indicated that it was intended to incite FUD.

    Right on. Most news sites fall into two categories:

    A) Online high frequency tech news/gossip sites that echo and reaffirm every sensationalist rumor that goes around.
    B) More traditional journalism that skips over these topics completely. You won’t find Newsweek or the New York Times even mention anything so clearly bogus.

    I like this site since it has the frequent chatty delivery on topics in video games and popular consumer technology of group A yet has more accuracy and less BS than the others.

  • Well thanks observer, I appreciate that!
