Why is TC surprised?
This is Sony.
You know, the same Sony that bragged about selling a game console for $600?

Hilarious!

What? Lying is the basis of most modern day marketing campaigns.


No, lying can get companies sued for gross misrepresentation of their products. Advertising is about making people think they're talking about something that they're not, about saying something they're not saying. If a company makes a direct claim that is patently provably false, they can and do get in trouble for it. That's why you don't find advertisements in the media that are straight facts that are wrong, but are merely misleading.


Alright. Lets see you attempt to sue Sony for this, right now.

Careful what you wish for, because Sony has some of the most talented lawyers in the world (sarcasm).

But anyways, Starwars4J is correct. Misrepresentation can get you in trouble.
Whether a third person pointing that out means they should actually sue the example or else their statement is negated is a different story. Though to be overly serious, it is clear co1onel is just lashing out for being pwned in business.

Oh, and while we are on the topic of Sony stupidity:
http://www.jp.playstation.com/psvita/hajimete/index.html

Very right column, 4th box down (the one with a golf screenshot.
The title in the box says: "The games you can play on the Vita"
When you click the link...

...
You get a page that says:
PS Vita games exist as a cartridge or you can download them. You can download them in the PS Store.

That's an opinion, so it wouldn't work.

Amazon's 180 dollar bundle FTW! Glad I waited and grabbed that baby in Black Friday. Great deal, even if Persona4 is the only game I'm interested in right now.

Look, PS+ is actually value more then the retail pricing, so if you add that to the bundle, you get more then $99 of saving.

Sony does this only? I see all the time on everything. Its not based on bad math but something to attract customers.

If you're smart you'll know what you're getting into before you buy ANYTHING. Look at Black Friday deals, you can see alot of the reason why somethings looked cheap but really weren't.
