If this is actually true, folks, you can look for some serious lawsuits to get flung at Sony in the coming weeks.  The PS3 got its version 3.0 firmware upgrade not too long ago, and ever since, strange difficulties have come to light.  Especially for those with off-brand controllers.

The Sony controllers, meanwhile, had nary a problem operating in the new environment.

So it’s left to ask–is Sony’s new firmware just too much program for the knockoffs?  Or is Sony looking to lock some people out of the market?  If it’s the locking part, well, like I said–Sony’s going to be lawsuit bait within weeks.
