John Pilger -- The War You Don't See (section on the BBC)


Digital TV group sets 3D standard

Big Brother


so basicially the MPAA (FACT, BIP, RIAA) ala, sony and co have drawn up a monopolistic strategy to block cheap electronics so only there trusted members get a licence & topping up on the DRM.....

O2 to raise broadband prices by up to 27%

Big Brother

capitalism = profit before people

This is the second time in 3 months that prices have been raised!

more money for a reduced service, sounds like capitalism to me!


lol i see O2 are still advertising their service as "Download as much as you want" feckin scum bag lairs, maybe its their own fault for leading ppl on & underinvestment that has led to network congestion? maybe instead of rubbing their greasy hands on all their profits they should give something back to the people.

Norway to probe Sony's PS3 Linux 'downgrade'



yep all those scientist hackers using the other os to link PS3's together for the good of humanity was just too much for sony to take as they wouldnt get any software sales from them customers and sony couldn't charge extortionate amounts of monies for supacomputers as ppl could make em on the free!

LG presses for PS3 US sales embargo



Sony stealing technology, surley not these are the jead of the MPAA & RIAA & again they are in the news for theft... or is it copywrite infringement, nope according to sony its theft!

Aussie outfit offers Brits rock-bottom price tellies


Sony rip off

so your happy to pay the extra £100 just to have the sony tag even though sony use a generic screen used by other manufacturers....

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II


PC games vs Console

another fact is that us pc gamers have had amazing titles in the past that were designed by gamers, but now they are all being dumb downed for the kids console market and they have to meet their shareholders expectations so titles are rushed, thus depth & story suffers, its a sad decade for gamers as corporations now churn out their cruddy titles by the bucket load.


45% Very Generous

Played through this short bland title and can honestly say it sucks.

gone are the days of jedi knight II jedi outcast, this series, since jedi academy is just a cash cow for the masses with little depth or skill involved to master.

Sony drops PSPgo price pants


Rip Off Sony Destroying Second Hand Market

well even if they were giving these away for free i wouldnt have one as sony has blocked you from reselling all software purchased for the device, even when you seel your console you are forced by sony to format all the games or you would face prosecution from the sony ass hats.

this is their attempt at destroying the second hand market, sony are scum.

Sony piques PS3 fans with PlayTV patch fee

Thumb Down

Anonymous Coward hey idiot

"So which company looks after it's customers? It's certainly not Microsoft."

corporations only care about profit and marketing not customers.

Channel 4 4OD to hit PS3


Media PC

But a computer ffs, they play all the free media out there, with free codecs n far superior ease of use with no worries of the flash ever being unsupported because the said company doesn't want to pay to support it, try watching even video Jug or youporn on ur consoles to see the common error "not supported"

+ there are litrally thousands of streams not just the handful you can get on these kiddie toy, media centre wannabe's.

Sony shows own-brand SD memory cards

Dead Vulture

propertarian sony bends for now

sd was the way forward but sony decided to try to force everyone that purchased anything sony had to purchase their over priced propertarian cards and hold back advancements in our society for profit. what is it with sony and their sesire to screw over the entire population of the world?

what is it with these large corporations & monopolies?

Sony BDP-S760 Blu-ray disc player


still over priced

I ran a comparison of the film wolverine on blu-ray & DVD using my £40 Toshiba Up-Scaling DVD & PS3.

Up close on my LG 42LH5000 the difference was vast but as soon as i sat back down on my settee 15 foot away, the difference was not as impressive as i expected, yes it did look better, but the difference was asimilar to that of changing a regular scart to a RGB one, but not worth the over inflated prices of neither the hardware or media for it.

I then tried it on my daughters 19" lcd & the image was almost identical.

TBH unless you have a large throw away income people sick to DVD.

DS crowned UK's favourite console

PSP Go Bluetooth tethering inbound


Sony yet again shows contempt for its customers

Ah a firmware fix even before it gets released kinda how things seem to be now release half finished products use the public as beta testers.

PSP Go = your games are worthless!

you are now blocked by sony from,

lending YOUR games

trading YOUR games

selling YOUR games


who's games are they exactly ?

SONY public relations blogger arguments: steam does not hold water as copying anti consumer behaviour is a disgrace, so sony copying steam is pure contempt for customers. not that steam is available through ANY console.

SONY public relations blogger arguments: "you have a choice in psp3000" this unit will be phased out as soon as sony can, forcing people to purchase new games through them as they now hold a monopoly on sales.

SONY public relations blogger arguments: "jealous / cant afford a PSP Go" even my 8 year old isnt stupid enough to fall for these school-yard tactics.

Microsoft admits to Halo 3: ODST 'issues'


the death of gaming as we knew it.

another half finished game wtf is wrong with the industry. they rush out titles use us as the beta testers & then expect micro payments for what has always been free content within the PC gaming community.

every console needs to be boycotted & a mass return to the PC is what is needed, consoles were supposed to be plug & play ffs.

games were a lot better when they were on a cartridge, at least you didn't have to worry about endless firmware updates craping out ur system.

Sony to rename Motion Control


Name suggestion

How about "the big stick to beat our customers with".

kinda has a sony ring about it dont you think?

Sony says ‘No’ to UMD swap shops

Dead Vulture

Time to lube up ppl

So do Sony think having a monopoly with the PSP GO pricing structure for games & blocking all resale, trade or just giving away the software for free because of anti consumer licensing of all titles released for the PSP GO will win people over?

does anyone else see this Sony scam for what it truly is, the destruction of the second hand market forcing everyone to purchase a brand new copy?

lets hope a huge retail boycott of this yet another assault on consumer by Sony

Amazon to take MP3 downloads international

Thumb Down

RIAA/IFPI At it again?

I'm sure we will have global price fixing where the uk and europe gets screwed over by the RIAA/IFPI just as they forced apple to price fix, i'm sure the same will be done with amazon by denying outside region credit card payments where the same content can be found for half the cost and piped from the same servers!
