Sony mystified by PS Vita glitch reports

Guardian: Sony appears to have been a victim of internet Chinese whispers, combined with an element of its Japanese website getting lost in translation.

One wonders whether the Sony-haters who hacked the PlayStation Network earlier in the year and aimed a barrage of bile at the company (including threats to senior executives) are up to their old tricks again.

I think it's just a mix of fanboys and the typical anti Sony media for the most part. I'm glad that neogaf has been real responsive as far as clearing up the bs lies though.

Edit: Lol, I think the Engadget site trolled the hardest when they said that Sony gave an apology for the "mass" PS Vita freezes when in reality, the Japanese blog were apologising for their phones being down and made no mention of anything Vita or even gaming related. The sad part of it was that anyone could've translated the official blog on their own to see that Engadget was straight up lying, but no one did. You can also press the Vita power down for 10 seconds to come out of the freeze and restart the system btw lol.

Mystified - is a great under-used word. I'm mystified alot on N4G.

Thanks for saving me the trouble.

Could be just the usual thing that. A few people are complaining and that is translated as 'everyone'.

I heard the Vita is just a hollow plastic box that emits a hallucinogenic gas making the owner think they're playing a game. When the freeze issue is reported the gas is starting to wear off and the gamer is seeing a glued on image that represents the screen, hitting the reset button emits another cloud of gas making the gamer think the issue is solved.

Blast you Sony for being so evil!!!

A few Japanese people get faulty Vitas, media reports it as a common issue, bad Japanese translations lead people to believe Sony acknowledges that there is an issue, Vita suffers bad publicity. Nintendo fanboys are in heaven right now.

This is the state of our games media today. Anything that can get them hits and garner them a bunch of money they will do it in a heart beat.

I am tired of dishonest, bias journalist and their underhanded tactics. Of course engadget and other site wont acknowledge that they are wrong and will blame Sony for "beating around the bush". I still just cant believe how undermining the media is these days.

Even user reviews aren't all that honest anymore:

"When you look up reviews on your favorite site, beware: they could be fakes."

I guess the Chinese hate the Vita because it's much better than their Yinlips.

Lol
