To Whom in may concern,
 
Sony, baby! I want to bring you to Hollywood, my man! We're talking the movie star fast track, you know what I'm saying? Of course you do, baby, of course you do!
 
Listen, S-Dog, I got a pitch I wanna run by you. No pressure, my man, no strings attached! Just let me know what you think, your people will talk with my people while me and you go grab some celebritory appletinis, ha ha!
 
Alright, so we got this tween comedy in the backburner, right? Something really classy, real contemporary. It's about this loser nobody who has no friends and is the butt of every joke in highschool. You know the type, I'm sure. A real NERD, am I right, haha? Yeah boy, yeah boy! So we got this loser, right, and one day he gets this great idea. He sees the top dog - the most popular and well liked kid in the school -  walking along and thinks, "What makes him different? What makes him so cool?!" And then it hits him, like a sack of solid gold bowling balls!
 
The next day the guy comes in and he's wearing the same clothes as the popular guy and has all the same mannerisms. He eats the same things, talks to the same people, and walks exactly like the popular kid. You see, to the loser, he thinks that by simply copying the other guy he too can be popular.
 
It was hard scouting for talent for this part - what type of self respecting person would be fine with being portrayed like this? Who wants to play the part of someone who envies the popular kid so much that they shamelessly try to mimic them, entirely missing the point of what made the person popular and well liked in the first place? But after seeing your GDC conference I realized that person is you!
 
So congrats, S-Dog! Let me be the first to welcome you to Hollywood!
 
Your's Truly,
SirPenguin
 
P.S. Oh, and want to know how the movie ends? Everyone sees through the loser's pathetic ploy and he's a lot worse off because of it. A real tear jerker!

This post is fail, sorry.
 
So Sony blatantly copied motion controls. Amazing, Microsoft blatantly copied the Miis and is using motion technology as well, I don't see you bitching. You should be glad Sony is bringing you the Wii HD all Nintendo fanboys have been crying about for the last 4 years.
 
So big companies copy each other, welcome to the industry. And don't dare call me a sony fanboy. If anything I am a PC fanboy, I am just speaking for a company that does not deserve the bashing it is receiving.

You act as if Nintendo invented avatars (what miis are).

I hate it when shoe companies rip off other shoe companies and make shoes. Do they know that the original shoe company came up with the idea of the shoe first before the other shoe company? I think the first shoe company should sue the second shoe company, I mean, they completely stole the first shoe companies idea! There is no way that the second shoe company's shoe isn't just an attempt to better the first shoe company's design.

Yeah, people really need to stop all the hatred when they don't even know what it's going to be like.

Well basically people are upset because instead of Sony trying something different, they went off to carbon copy the success of the Wii with its Wii remote controllers.

I'd say at this point we pretty much know what it is going to be like.

They've already showed just about everything that it's going to be like.

And the keyword here ladies and gentlemen is "companies copy each other, welcome to the industry" it's not a big deal and they are not forcing you to use their fancy new motion controller technology.

It's going to be like this...games will sell gangbusters but the games themselves will be hated by journalists because they are bland and uninteresting. Just like the shitload of wii games on the market right now
