I just saw Anne Robinson mention on Watchdog that PS3 owners shouldn't miss next week's show. Any idea what the old boot is going on about? Is this going to be another badly researched report about a prat who bricked their machine through sheer stupidity and then moans that Sony doesn't give a refund? Online issues perhaps? Thoughts please.
Maybe she just meant because they can. via the iPlayer.
I doubt it though, it's probably exactly what you said.
It's an investigation into YLoD, and will be presented as something the BBC have found out and that no-one has ever known about so you'll be damn grateful and show it, right? And knowing the BBC and Watchdog, viewers will be left in absolutely *no* doubt whatsoever that if they buy a PS3 that weekend, by Monday it will have burned you and your family out of your house and killed your dog. Presenters will have furrowed brows and speak in deeply concerned tones, and a "member of the public" will tell how her kids' PS3 ruined her life, made her ill and drove her into debt. [Warning: that "member of the public" may be from the Watchdog research staff.]
Watchdog is a joke, and so is that ghastly Robinson 'woman' (or whatever it is). Unfortunately the show is very popular and most of its viewers score below 100 on the IQ scale. Sony's defence will be a single-line quote at the end of the section, and Robinson will read it with a strong "yeah right, like we're going to let our viewers believe that" tone.
You're right about everything except the furrowed brow, Robinson doesn't have that degree of facial control left. She can barely open her mouth anymore. That's why her voice sounds like that.
I know it is only hearsay but a salesman in my local gamestop told me that PS3 returns are on a par with 360 returns.
I personally think electronic equipment in general has a much shorter life span than 10 years ago.
Current PS3 returns may well be on par with current 360 returns. They've had enough time to sort out the problems with Falcon and then Jasper chipsets.
