Sony's David Reeves

| Eurogamer: What's your reaction to the Q3 financial figures?
| 
| David Reeves: On PS3, the target is still 10 million sell-in. PS3 was the 
| number one priority, and the Corporation is going to meet that target. We're 
| very happy about it overall.  
| 
| PSP was not hit so much by demand, but by economic factors. I can only talk 
| specifically about Europe, but we've lost volume in Russia. A lot of 
| retailers there have been sucked up by oligarchs, and they didn't have the 
| financial support. They were not able to buy in the product, even though the 
| demand was there.

Microsoft knew about Xbox 360 disc-scratch problem, employee claims

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft knew prior to the Xbox 360’s launch that the console can damage
| discs if gamers tilt the unit while a disc’s spinning inside, documents from
| a lawsuit focused on the problem reveal.
|
| The revelation was made by Hiroo Umeno, a Microsoft programmer, in an ongoing
| case that was filed with the Seattle District Court in July 2007. The
| plaintiffs are seeking class-action status on behalf of affected gamers, but
| the documents containing Umeno’s confession have only just been unsealed at

Disgruntled Gamer Sues Microsoft For Scratched Game Discs

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft could find themselves in some hot water if a Madison County,
| Illinois resident has his way.  Jason Johnson is suing Microsoft for what he
| claims is defective hardware in relation to his Xbox 360.  Johnson claims
| that his console has ruined his favorite games and made them 'unplayable' due
| to optical disc scratching.  He claims that his copies of Rock Band, Grand
| Theft Auto IV, and Rock Band 2 all began displaying the "Disc Read Error"
| after extensive use.

Microsoft admits scratch problem with Xbox 360

,----[ Quote ]
| There hasn't been much discussion on the fact that the problem exists
| by consumers, but untill now Microsoft has always somewhat denied the
| problem and never proposed a solution.
|
| The Dutch television show Kassa, which deals with customer complaints,
| has been nagging Microsoft about this problem for several weeks, they
| did tests with Xbox360 setups and filmed (and proofed) that the Xbox360
| is indeed responsible for scratching game discs, when not moved, placed
| on a stable table and under the best possible conditions.
|
| [...]
|
|
| The television show also reported that while this issue is now an issue
| in the Netherlands (it is also widely covered in regular news), it
| could become a global problem for Microsoft in the future. Therefore
| I would recommend anyone who is facing the same problem to contact
| their local Microsoft office and point them to this article.

Gears of War disc errors - why the hell is no one covering this?

,----[ Quote ]
| So, we're all just 'unlucky' Mark? Thanks for that. I'm happy for you
| and your console, but what about us? Where are we supposed to turn to
| for help and support? Microsoft wasn't very helpful (ref #102-379-2964)
| any of the times I've called them (I think it's up to three now for the
| same issue - perhaps I'll call again today and check on an update).
|
| All I know is that if I see that dreaded error message again on my new
| 360 I am going to go absolutely ballistic!!!

Update brick your 360? Speak up

,----[ Quote ]
| Since yesterday's update, there are numerous reports about 360s
| being bricked. Some people suspect that this is being done by
| Microsoft intentionally to stop modders and hackers. Xbox Scene
| thinks it has more to do with certain combinations of hardware
| and firmware.
