How to shoot yourself in the foot, Sony Style

Jeff nails it, again.

“If I were the CEO of Sony I would be calling the head of the PSP group in for a meeting and ask the following questions:

1) Why is someone posting a firmware downgrader for the PSP that strips the latest firmware out of the device and downgrades it to one of the earliest releases? Why are such a significant number of our customers willing to forego bug fixes and updates in the current firmware for the capabilities that the original generation of firmware gives them?”

I’ve had the same argument before, but it seems that Sony is incapable of learning. Can you say ATRAC?

So UMD sales are down? Can’t you take a hint?
