    Sony have confessed that a consumer fansite promoting the PSP is not genuine and was indeed created by them. They said "Busted. Nailed. Snagged. As many of you have figured out (maybe our speech was a little too funky fresh???), Peter isn't a real hip-hop maven and this site was actually developed by Sony. Guess we were trying to be just a little too clever. From this point forward, we will just stick to making cool products, and use this site to give you nothing but the facts on the PSP." Oh Sony whatever next?

    Eh, I'm sorry but I just ain't buying that. Find me an official sony press-release confirming the same thing, this could just have been any joker having a laugh.

    EDIT: After having read some more of its contents it certainly seems like a faked site, however, still undecided for what purpose, pro-sony or against?

    Also:
    Sony's PSP advertisements have bordered on zany and offensive for some time, with everything building up to the "all i want for xmas is a psp" campaign. While we noticed something was a tad off kilter with the childishly-worded site, all it took was a few hundred detectives to spoil the company's fun. Unfortunately for Sony, the firm was busted in an attempt to construct an undercover website urging folks to urge their parents to pick up a PSP this December. This most certainly isn't the first time this year that the firm has started a "quasi-official" weblog, but trying to fool all those eagle-eyed readers out there didn't quite work out as planned. Nevertheless, the site remains up to provide "nothing but the facts on the PSP" from here on out, but that just makes you wonder what all the other propaganda before this was.

    Sony's prices are different from their competitors how? And please, don't compare the pricing of the Wii and Ps3 since they're entirely different machines, not to mention how the wii becomes drasticly much more expensive as soon you get additional controls for it.

    - I've looked into the issue a bit more, the site seems pretty much proven to be fake with connections to a marketing company called Zipatoni. However, I still find it to be pretty damn weird that Sony has not yet made an official statement regarding the matter, a faked site is pretty serious and hurts the company's credability. Either Sony isn't aware of it, trying to lay low or it's a scam/hoax seeking to hurt Sony, even if the later sounds alot like a wild conspiracy-theory. But you gotta admit, it didn't take no sherlock holmes to find the site suspicious and discover the link between it and Zipatoni, either someone's very stupid or someone wanted it to be discovered.
