Sony: PS3 Downgrade A Lie

Sony has responded to last week’s rumors that PS3 components would be modified to prevent overheating. As reported by EuroGamer, Jonathan Fargher, spokesperson for Sony said, “The PS3 downgrade story is categorically not true. Developers have been working with PS3 dev kits for anywhere between eight and 12 months, and to suggest that we’d now take the decision to downgrade the hardware at such a late stage, is, well, ridiculous. Worse still is the suggestion that we couldn’t fit all the technical components into a plastic box.”

Fargher continued his explanation and pointed to Sony,s track record of making things fit, “Granted, whilst all products are not perfect, we do have over 40 years of experience making consumer electronics equipment, and therefore, extensive experience in making things fit – PSone and Slimline PS2 being just two examples of that."

Earlier in the year, Sony vehemently denied that there were any problems concerning its Blue-ray DVD and its compatibility with the PS3 hardware. Sony also denied that there were logistics problems with its powerful Cell processor. However, these two rumors proved to be true, and Sony,s backtracking had industry watchers concerned about the real condition of the PS3.
