It sucks to be Sony Computer Entertainment in 2011

MyGaming - 2011 has been an utterly treacherous year for Sony so far. Firstly, notorious hacker George "Geohot" Hotz released the security keys for the PS3 in January, enabling pretty much anybody to run unapproved software on the console, including pirated games and software hacks. The resultant legal wrangle is just getting underway as Sony is looking to nail the man responsible for the security breach. It remains to be seen how the entire affair plays out in the long run with support growing on either side of the debacle.

Not really, sony appears to have been winning the battles stated in this article and including the japanese earthquake in this is rather pointless as if your using that as an argument you might as well title the article, 'It sucks to be Any Japanese Company'

Too bad Sony is winning and owning everybody in 2011. GeoHot, bam, owned. Hackers, bam, owned. Microsoft, bam, owned. Aritcles trying to pretend Sony is owning them, bam, owned. LOL.

They relesed Little Big Planet 2, Killzone 3, Motorstorm apocalypse so far in 2011. It can't be that bad.

Sony is in the best position this year, they've got games, they're selling consoles, they finally bested Xbox 360.

This Anonymous & Hacking stuff is nothing but a minor Speed Bump, in an otherwise awesome year.

All of which have sold considerably less than their predecessors in the same time frame. I won't even mention Motorstorm launch date fiasco and how it released in Europe only to have just 19k units sold first week

i agree with FailOverHero.

Sony has the exclusives this year but so far, the software just arent selling..

possibly later when twisted metal, resitance 3, last guardian comes out, will Sony get some cash from exclusive software.

good thing though is that the software will boost hardware sales regardless.

it seems like 3rd party developers are more happy with the ps3 with games like portal 2 raping the pre-order charts over the xbox and pc version.

if taking second is bad then what the hell is doing good
