Gamnesia: "Notably there is nothing overly wrong with being arrogant. At times it makes you sound like an idiot, but overall its impact on the consumer base level is usually nothing notable. You could also argue every major corporation, including Nintendo and Microsoft, are arrogant in their own specific ways. However, this particular topic is going to focus in on Sony, given that the gamers out there seem to be all too willing to hop on the Sony train as if they are vastly superior in every fashion to the whole industry. In fact, that mantra by gamers is what gives Sony their bravado to begin with. So, when Sony starts making silly assertions about their superiority again, remember to look in the mirror because they are learning it from the best.
When you dig for silly quotes many of them come from between 2005 and 2008, a time when Sony was openly bashing pretty much any product on the market that wasn’t a PlayStation 3. In fact, this is the time when they proclaimed the PlayStation 3 was probably too cheap, hinting that they should be charging more for it. You won’t find those sort of quotes from them today, but that doesn’t mean that underlying thought process has left them."
