Fuck You, Sony
Some people have told me in the past that I was being unreasonable in attempting to not buy anything from Sony due to the rootkit issue. I don’t do it because I think a boycott will serve any purpose, it’s just that I don’t want to give the company any of my money. I understand they’re a large corporation, and have lots of different unrelated departments, but I still feel that way.
Well, now a different division of Sony has just pissed me off again. Lik-sang has been forced to shut down due to the expense of Sony lawsuits. This was the site I bought the wireless adapter for PS2 controllers from to make my wireless Guitar Hero guitar. They
I will be buying Guitar Hero II, which I’m sure they get some royalty money from. After that, I’ll be avoiding them at all costs. I’m sure some TV/Movies/DVDs will slip in there, but I’ll do my best.
I will not be buying a PS3, and it has nothing to do with the price tag. Hell, I just spent $3300 on 6 baseball tickets (which, sadly, I have to return and get a refund for), so $600 for a game console doesn’t seem like a stretch for me. I just won’t buy a $600 game console from Sony.
I hope your batteries keep exploding.
