I Blame the internet for the PS3's bad sales

Dave Karraker is the PR guy for Sony America so I think everyone can feel sorry for him as he must have the hardest job in the gaming industry at the moment.

However sympathy only goes so far… When asked why the PS3 is not getting the consumers excited he has the following…

I think a lot of this goes back to the proliferation of the Internet, where a very vocal minority can make a lot of noise and potentially alter perceptions of the masses, whether they are accurate or not. A lot of this, naturally, is driven by the media who seem focused on taking swipes at us lately

So in normal speak… There are just to many people out there and not all of them are falling for our marketing hype… Maybe they didn’t want to work extra hours or get a second job Dave…

Hint for the future, don’t complain about the internet in an interview that is being published on the internet about a piece of hardware that is meant to be used to connect to the internet.
