Sony's PlayStation 3 A Tax-Dodging 'Computer'?

For those of you who kept an eye open during the European launch of the PlayStation 2, some six years ago, all this may seem like a like deja-vu. That's because, at that time, Sony was also trying to get the PS2 to be classified as a computer, instead of a console, just to avoid paying some extra taxes which are in place in Europe, for importing game consoles.

....after all if Sony themselves don't even know what it's supposed to be, how are the governments in Europe going to know!

MoonDust3757d ago

Playstation is a gaming console you can't run windows on it it's not a pc.

DG3757d ago

So a computer not running windows is not a PC. So a mac or a linux based PC is not a computer?

Lucidmantra3757d ago

Yes Macs, LINUX, UNIX, DOS, and many other operating environments are PC's

PS360PCROCKS3757d ago

you have GOT to be kidding me??? How can they get away with this? It's OBVIOUSLY a gaming machine, their dumb over their I swear

DG3757d ago

Why is everybody so upset. If you had a chance to save some money on your taxes (and rip off the government) you wouldnt do it. Its normal business practice to write off gas and food etc. this is no diff.

Bill Gates3757d ago

Your post is the only intelligent post here.

DG3757d ago (Edited 3757d ago )

It seems like everyone is on the "I hate Sony" bandwagon and quick to stone them to death. It didnt work on Jesus and it wont work here people (not to compare Sony to Jesus its just a metaphor relax!).

TheMART3757d ago

No I wouldn't compare the PS3 to Jesus ever.

I think the PS3 would be a Judas, a lying biaattcchhh

Chexd3757d ago

haha saying we are dumb when you said "their" instead of "there"..oh the irony

Shadow Flare3757d ago (Edited 3757d ago )

Firstly, judas betrayed jesus, he didnt lie to him you moron

Secondly, i hate you

Thirdly, stop being so stuck up, you stupid fanboy. Get your head out your butt and recognise some good things sony has done, cos ms sure as hell aint perfect.

Im sure most u box fanboys are kids.

-Trying to justify every possible reason u bought a 360

-putting sony down on EVERYTHING to make yourself feel better bout buying the box 360

-you love games where u just shoot anything

- you dont have a job to afford a ps3
