Sony sent me an email about a contest they are having. It seems they want to address the idea of cyberbullying on the internet. This is the process by which another person harasses, bullies, or defames another person on the Internet. They want the customers to write the press release and they will reward the person's who's release they select to use.

This is probably so Sony can blame something as stupid on this on an external source.

Maybe if they spent half as much time addressing their own PC bullying tactics via rootkits they wouldn't worry about such absurdities as this.

I agree. The Wii is more awesomer than the PS3.

If you don't get on and write that press release, I am going to have to send round the 'ired goons to rip yer bloody arms off, see if I don't!

I think Sony get around kids too much. If they opened forums for parents maybe the contest would be about lowering their prices.
