Rootkit scandal, and now hitting LGPL scandal related to the Rootkit (they included LGPL'd code in the DRM package, apparently... details are still sketchy on this one).

My favorite is them trying to play catchup in the HDTV realm though... after years of their (non-CRT) HDTV's being the bottom of the barrel, they're spending massive money on ads.

Re: Sony in the news a lot lately...

yeah they have a new PSP ad campain to compete with the XBOX 360 release. I don't see them going BANG but certainly they will be hurting for quite some time as even the PS3 is gonna hurt them for a few years to come hardware wise. As stated the PS3 cost is gonna be higher than MSRP so they are gonna lose per sale of the PS3 until production costs go down but as they do so does the price of the units MSRP. Games will be of course the saving grace there but they will still lose money on the PS3 up front.
