I think you're exaggerating. It rarely happens. Of course the anti-Sony crowd will take any minor incident and blow it out of proportion. I shouldn't be surprised.
You implying I'm the anti-Sony crowd?
I usually play the newest games on day one and this has happened to me at least ten times. Rogue Pilot, Crazy Taxi, BTTF, Brain... that psn brain game I can't remember the name of.., Scott Pilgrim DLC, Ricochet HD, Test Yourself... I wish I could remember all the disc games this has happened to me on, or friends its happened to that i had to explain the situation. But I've played hundreds of ps3 games and that's not something I make a note of.
The sad reality is if it's not a big name release it has a decent chance of happening. But they do get fixed eventually. Even if it takes a month or more like Rogue Pilot did.
