Default Whats your favourite piece of anti Sony FUD?

Over the last few years there has been untold bullshit thrown at the PS3 and I was wondering what everyone's favorite was?

I remember the exact opposite, around the PS3's disastrous launch and after Kutaragi was forced out of SCEI some people were saying Sony would never release another console. It was a bad time for Sony with the PSP lagging badly then, Blu-ray trailing HD-DVD and the PS3 being received very poorly so some people fell for it.

That's not to say that Sony fanboys don't spread their fair share of FUD.

Edit: Found a link. It was actually an analyst saying it and fanboys were only too happy to quote him around that time. Not exactly fanboy FUD but very close.

I wish I could remember the member of this forum that was spreading some silly rumor that sony was actively perusing new employees to work on the new system.

Fill in the blank with ANY console in ANY gen... most of the same is repeated every gen

nothing new here, sony being arogant as fuck from last gen thought they were high and mighty and could cop their egotistical ways by stating the PR BS they did... notice how after sales initially didn't take off like planned they went into a more conservative approach with the system? From the format war to pricecuts/models being cleared out, they are now a more enjoyable company to hear from... not the 'next gen starts when WE say it does' mentality
