    Sorry for the title. but everything just came clear as to why Sony are banging on about the PS3 being a computer. they were trying to make it seem the PS2 was a computer so they could carry that torch on with the PS3. oh well. wonder if this finally means Sony will give it a bleedin rest over the whole confused identity of the PS3.

    They were trying to cheat the taxman.

    This sort of thing is nothing new in the corporate world. I am mildly amused, however, that SONY would resort to such futile tactic to recover a pennies. Someone would have had to be bloody gullible to believe their claim.

    I would have no problem if the cost difference came to the consumer, but with any company who are we kidding :rolleyes:

    Good find though.

    Are we surprised? Let's face it - the only reason they dropped Rumble is so they dont have to pay immersion technology - royalties.

    Immersion funnily have announced they would be happy to put the rumble in the ps3 pad and it would not cause any problems with sony's movement sensor, after Sony claimed that was the reason for leaving it out :rolleyes:

    Actually, there was a ban on PS2's entering middle eastern countries as the chips could have controlled missiles.
