The PSP Show #22: fallout Lik-Sang and response en masse

The PSP Show: Let's show Sony how we feel

Ewan Spence feels your pain, he shares it, because it is his pain, too. He’s come to tell us that The PSP Show #22 is dedicated to the memory of Lik-Sang, a eulogy of all that it had done for the consumers – and the ironic advantages they gave to Sony. But of course, it doesn’t end there. To answer the faint cry of “What do we do now? Where do we go from here?” Ewan offers us two suggestions, all with one intent: time for Sony to know that we, the consumer, are upset.

I recall, in my journeys through QJ comments and forums, that when similar suggestions have been raised, many of you have countered, “So why would a megacorp like Sony listen to us when it can easily afford to ignore us?” True enough, but I personally can counter that with something I read this in a forum sig (not the QJ forums, though): “Destiny is just a lame excuse to let things happen.”

Ewan admits his first idea is frivolous – to just buy the PS3 console (and nothing but) and resell it somewhere else. I’ll leave it to him to explain. It’s the second one that’s more probable, even if it is a long-shot: a letter-writing campaign. Nothing profane though: Ewan advises that we write a polite letter to Sony to tell them why we think they made the wrong move with Lik-Sang.

It may not hit Sony at the bottom line – not yet, anyway – but it might warn them that the mood in the air is decidedly against them. And economic analysts everywhere agree: Sony can’t afford that. Hear Ewan out. It’s a long shot, sure, but destiny’s just a lame excuse, too. Thanks for telling us about this podcast, Ewan. Thanks for reminding us we’ve still got a voice.
