Sony: No overheating, downloads as a "weapon"

updated 12:05 pm EDT, Wed October 4, 2006

Sony heat issue, downloads

Despite first-person accounts to the contrary, Sony is rejecting claims that there were troubles with the PS3 at the Tokyo Game Show. "SCE can categorically deny that there's any problems with PS3 units overheating," a representative tells GamesIndustry. "As could be seen on the TGS floor by the tens of thousands of media and public attendees, both the hardware and software worked flawlessly." In another instance of Sony cynicism, MCV reports that Worldwide Studios VP Michael Denny calls downloads a "big weapon" in preventing trade-ins. "Downloadable content is where we can extend the life of a product," he told the London Games Summit. By tying games and downloads together, customers may be less inclined to exchange a product, knowing they'll lose out on future additions if they do. A trade-in may also render their current downloads useless.
