    I can't believe this - sony is content to lie right to the faces of their consumers, when they didn't in fact win an emmy for the sixaxis controller. What a bunch of bull-shit. Read the link.

    So they won for the dual-shock, NOT the sixaxis.

    Sick bastards...

    Yeah umm... Let's promote our new console, manipulating what was said to make people think it was for our new stuff, when it was in fact for the old stuff. It still looks the same, so we're alright to claim this!

    I must say that I sure do like that dualshock. And the NES pad as well. Loads of good times with those devices....

    This thread is proof that the internet is full of rational, collected people who definitely have their priorities in order.

    Kinda. I also like Nintendo for that matter too, the N64 is still my favorite console and the SNES isn't far behind.

    There's lots of things to bitch about: You can't replace the controller batteries. It costs too much. The online isn't as fleshed out as it could be. There's not many great games out right now. It doesn't have a built-in scaler.

    Those are valid points worthy of discussion/criticism. PR blunders are not. For ****s sake you people bitched even more back when you thought the thing really had won an Emmy. It's just silly. It's really silly.

    All I'm going to say is, I don't think "lying" counts as a PR blunder.

    Apparently Sony were none the wiser:

    This Sony bashing does seem a little over the top. Not that it's that big a deal.
