I think the public is becoming very jaded with the antics of this group. I know I personally now avoid anything with the Sony moniker any more.
Oh no, Sony lost your business! What ever will they do? Sorry, but beyond the most vocal whiners (who apparently love to frequent the Blue's News boards), I don't think anyone is feeling very "jaded with the antics" of Sony. They consistently put out quality hardware and people are more than willing to pay for that quality. The PS3 is in no danger of "defeat", whatever that is supposed to mean.
