A Feel Good Sony Story That Makes MS Look Like Sh**
Okay, here's your feel-good story for the week.
Many Sony followers have always appreciated the company's apparent desire to put the gamer first. And that's what a disabled gamer is praising after attending the EBGames Expo in the city of Sydney, Australia.
According to the story posted at Gameranx, a Reddit user by the name of RandomHypnotica spoke about his experience at the event. He and three friends, all of whom were in wheelchairs, wanted to go hands-on with the PlayStation 4. However, due to an oversight, all the units were upstairs and as such, were not wheelchair accessible. A Sony representative apologized, and said they always support the disabled player base.
Then, he took the contact information of each of the disappointed gamers and promised that each of them would receive a shiny new PS4 on launch day. Then they headed over to the Microsoft area, but were flatly told that the Xbox One displays were upstairs and there was nothing they could do. ...okay, this story sounds like it has some spin to it, but if it doesn't, I won't be surprised in the slightest. In my estimation, Microsoft cares as much about gamers as I care about hockey, which is to say, very little.
