PS3 Manufacturer Warns Media

PlayStation 3 manufacturer Asustek has fired a warning shot over the bows of the media, following yesterday's leaked reports that the company has already begun shipping PS3 units to Sony.

Via Taiwan's financial hub, the company yesterday issued a sternly worded warning to the media about the reports, stating that it would sue any outlets that had damaged relationships with its clients.

what are they scared of???

andy capps3726d ago

They're scared because this sort of information being released is a violation of whatever NDA they signed with Sony, apparently. Good news for gamers as it appears that the report that was leaked is true, bad news for the company as Sony may penalize them, and worse news for whichever employee leaked the story.

I state that it's good news for gamers as it proves that the console is in production, thereby indicating that it will launch on time in November. It also seems to indicate that they are forecasting to at least meet if not exceed their launch estimates as well. I mentioned yesterday in another topic that if they do exceed the production estimates and can ramp up production quickly, that may help to lower the price at launch. Possibly be a large "Krazy Ken" announcement at TGS? Hmm...

This would mean that the PS3 final specs are finalized and they will have to tell the world about the hardware. If they downgrade the PS3 on anyway they will get flamed for 4 months. They don't want people to be exposed to bad press about the PS3; they know that Sony fanboys would buy the PS3 even if it's not half of what they promised.

sony r such a arrogant company,all respect and loyalty for them has been pissed into the wind.

andy capps3726d ago

What does that have to do with this topic?

THELANDSOFSAND3726d ago

maybe he's pissed at sony's attempt to censor and control media reports. i know i am.

jedicurt3726d ago

you are so right, how dare sony go after people for violating confidentiality agreements!!!!!!!!! How Terrible this company must be for making sure that companies and employees follow the contracts that they sign. Please, MS did and does do the exact same thing, just the don't get mentioned for it, cause sony is the company on the bashing block right now.

Wake up your morons, this is normal business practice

THELANDSOFSAND3726d ago

i dont remember MS throwing a hissy fit and threatening to sue THE MEDIA about reporting rumors. this is just sony trying to control their bad PR.

Watapata3726d ago

Sony isn't the one threatening to sue the media, that would be Asus...it says right there in the article...maybe you should open your eyes a little, blind allegiance is NEVER a good thing...

THELANDSOFSAND3726d ago

asus are under contract for sony and represent sony. they are also producing sony's product.
maybe you are blind?

Watapata3726d ago

They are under NDA with Sony, but they in no way represent Sony. Yes they are manufacturing one of Sony's products and likely would like to keep things that way and so in their own self-interest are threatening legal action. There is nothing, however, to indicate that this legal action was at all prompted by Sony.
