The Smartest & Dumbest Things Sony Did in 2012

kotaku.com: We're currently taking a look back over 2012, not only at delivery foods we've ordered and personal mistakes we've made, but also what the major gaming companies have been up to. What have they pulled off? What did they bungle? We already ran down the list for Microsoft, and today it's good ol' Sony's turn. (PS Vita, PS3, Sony)

I can't believe they're still spouting off about how "mediocre" Uncharted Golden Abyss is. How many times are you going to feed us that BS, Kotaku? There's nothing mediocre about that game. The game sits at a respectable metacritic score of 80 and the reviews ranged from "this game is outstanding" to "this game is pretty damn good".

Another example of Kotaku playing "if we say it enough times, it'll become true!" No one is falling for it. As I said before, Kotaku needs to move on from their grievances with Sony over the whole black-listing thing and stop taking cheap shots at them in every damn article related to Sony. It's petty, plain and simple.

And then to show off the two-faced nature of the site, they bash Playstation All-Stars after their reviewer recommended it and went on about how much chaotic fun it was? Just makes me shake my head. To go from "This game is great fun, we recommend" to "we're disappointed, this game is mediocre, why oh why isn't it Smash Bros, where's Crash Bandicoot?"

Just classless.

@majiebeast: +1 Bubble for Truth and for Helpful.

@everyone else: Follow these instructions.

1. Click on kotaku.com+ underneath "Read Full Story"
2. In the drop down menu for story quality click "WTF?"
3. In the drop down menu for "Do you like this website" click "No."

Kraptaku needs to be removed from the internet, but we can at least start here.

I feel really bad that you visited this site but it you are a noble warrior for returning with the information that we need to not make the same treacherous journey.

I think the mistake with Playstation All Stars Battle Royale is that they should have waited to release it as a launch title for the next gen.

The PS VITA mistake was really in the proprietary memory card.

I'm calling it. 600% in the next 10 minutes.

I have to concur with the psVita choice
Hicken  +   714d ago
I'd have to agree with you... if I were a troll who knew nothing about the Vita except the BS I read on the internet which happens to be far from the truth.

How about shutting down multiple studios like Sony Liverpool and Zipper interactive?
Ult iMate  +   713d ago
I heard they returned the Liverpool studio.

PS All Stars? Really? I'm freakin' in love with that game!

You know guys/gals we are just giving them what that 'site' wants by clicking & commenting about their 'articles'.

For me personally that 'site' hasn't been revelant in years so as soon as i see that name i could care less what they 'write' about.

There that is all i am gonna say.
Y_5150  +   714d ago
All I see on this list are good things for us gamers.

Uncharted golden abyss mediocre? wtf its a great game and nowhere near mediocre and psasbr was put in a tough position to succeed imo. It seems like some reviewers had there mind set on the score before they even tried the game.
InTheLab  +   714d ago
They tell people to got buy PS allstars but it's a dumb move? At any rate, Sony fans should be happy they really had to dig down deep to come up with anything. Most of Vitas games were given a "yes" from this shit site but Vita is bad?

Their Xbox version of this article barely related to Xbox and was more of a Windows thing. Kinect failed at everything they attempted with it aside from Dance Central.

Kotaku either hates Sony or REALLY loves MS.
