Right now, you all might be digging your own holes.
Sony is building an empire, they just had to first build their underground passage ways, but now there starting to build toward the sky and outwards toward the horizon...
um uh ok????
Ok, let me say it im more understandable terms.... The passage ways = Sony was in the hole at the starting, trying to get their feet planted, winning the blu-ray vs. hd dvd race, getting the games to show how powerful the console is and ect. It's where all their secret projects are worked on before being reveiled (PS Move, Firmware updates ect. Building the empire toward the sky = Now that sony has it's feet planted, now it can now start building up from what they have so far, making it even better and improving. Expanding towards the horizon = Means exactly that, expanding on what they started with, adding more things to the PS3 that makes it an all around better gaming console and entertainment machine.
@Forbidden_Darkness Dude I have seen fanboyism but that's on the verge of creepy cult talk right there. Kinda freaky, just sayin.
they are a corp. they make products we enjoy. that's as far as it should go, really.
I'm joking wow...
I love Sony products but when companies get too big quality suffers. Whoever is at the top will fal, that is how it works. I want to see them to stay focused on delivering the best products they can. Let Apple and Microsoft fight over who's biggest. EDIT: I have to say something else. Nintendo better not be the only company investigating these suicides... This whole situation is f*cked, and these companies are the only ones who can fix it.
Let Apple and Microsoft fight? Last time I checked, Sony was a hell of a lot bigger than either of them. Sony has 170k+ employees while Apple has 36k and Microsoft has 90k. Sony is in movies, record labels, TVs, computers, media players, gaming, cameras, etc etc etc. I don't think there's even a fight to be had there, nor is Apple even remotely interested in fighting that. Microsoft, maybe.
now i don't want to buy any products from them, i am not going to buy a product that involves some one dying due to bad working conditions. (this is modern slavery)
still what does that have to do with this article? am i missing something here? guess i am
you are missing the point that Sony is awesome and they can do no wrong
you are missing my point in that IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE ARTICLE unless im missing something here i don't see how what he said is relevant here? what am i missing?
you're missing the fact that reading articles is superfrulous and antiquated
You're missing the Fact that I didn't Read the "article" (cos it's tooltaku) and by reading some comments, IDK WTF is going on? NVM, well seems like Foxconn, the Comp. that manufacture parts for every piece of technology (they make stuff for ASUS too and others) it's like the old-slave Days, now every-1 is like "OMG" but this kind of "treatment" to their employees is old, they [Foxconn] had problems before cos of that and now there is more exposure cos of the Suicides IDK WTF N, Sony and MS got to do with this cos if this site Wants to Call Out Companies that work with Foxconn, they need to call a lot more Electronic Manufacturers like, Intel, DELL, HP and so on...
Eh why they even bring Apple to this article. They're not even serious about gaming. They've never been. They appear like they're more into targeting the mobile casuals. I think the companies that are really putting their resources to gaming are the obvious nintendo, sony, and Microsoft.
read the article please....
The issue with the Foxconn suicides isn't even entirely related to those four companies, just more or less Sony and Apple. What I don't agree with the title is that with the gaming issue a month ago, it's like now we have to bring apple to the equation when we mention the obvious gaming companies. Apple shouldn't have to be in the same sentence with the three words Sony, Nintendo, and Microsoft.
sssuuuurrrre like they can make a knock-off of the cell processor.
slavery or expensive electronics, what do you choose?(agree=slavery,disagree =fair wages & expensive electronics)
what would be your reply if someone said both?
makes no sense
I would happily pay more for the things I love if it meant better wages and lives for these people. I've seen the way they live and it's miserable and heartbreaking. If you have a heart. And not a cold frozen piece of cynisism. To all the comments regarding Apple or how great Sony is... You've completely missed the point. Either that or you're just callous assholes. Try giving a shit about something other than your own narcisistic materialism.
What does Apple have to do with gaming?
You didn't hear about the new Apple gaming console coming out? yeah me either!.
We can't just keep on building on the cheap, selling what the market will bear while trying to wring every drop of profit. @Cha465: You know China just announced an iPad clone called an iPod, right? @Cha465: Yeah, like I or the Chinese actually care what the actual name is...
apple makes both the ipad and ipod. iped is the china clone of the ipad.
that made my day comment of the day bubbs for both lmao
here we go again... another "letter type" article
im surprised this came from kotaku. the article is full of theories of chinas future and misplaces the tragedy that seemingly is occurring in china and places such as a boon of prosperity.china will never be a dominant force in capitalism if they have no export.if they choose to rely on labor as a source of product with which to secure capital; they are forgetting they have none, as capitol is not within the domains of communism.capital as a means by which is referred in the article is being generated by china in the form of "outsourced labor".the only way china can create capital in the guise an american views capital is by means of exporting a commodity and importing wealth based on the surplus of wealth minus the cost of exporting said commodity. when all is said and done a corporation is not the people who comprise it for they are but employed by the corporation.with laws being passed in america that make it possible for companies and maybe even non profits to donate to political parties; a possibility that china could be likened as a "government" that has a capitol/creates capital wealth, by proxy of its involvement with the manufacturing of goods is possible.as it stands now the only people catching the heat are the hearts set ablaze and the company stocks effected. which brings into another paradox; if china managed to create a real economy based on physical stock of product and labor and not imaginary; then they (western economists) would not be viewed as not being rich: even though they have an infrastructure that supports physical commodities and physical labor to maintain their own countries goods.and an attempted new monetary system backing this as well(prior conjectures).
Has to be the irony of ironies that a communist country has become a center capitalism and is exploiting its people...
