    Whoops. :lol 

    For the record, I was originally going to post this last night but thought better and deleted it pending arguments about whether or not it was a PS. General consensus seems to be it is not a PS now from people much more knowledgeable than me about such things. There are reports coming from different sources and multiple angles, and the only pictures with the correct "L" are said to be the doctored ones.

    Big fucking deal. It's not like that's a final product, or would ever EVER ship like that in the US. And even if it actually did ship like that in Japan it wouldn't even be a big deal because it's still the exact same word there. Yes, engrish is hi-larious. "Struggling" though? Please.

    It's a joke, useful for easing the tension over all the bad publicity Sony has gotten lately. Nobody geniunely believes the controller would ship that way or that it's a real sign of Sony's impending failure. Lighten up.

    i thought it was the little PS logo, maybe if you press it, you can to to Sony Online or something....

    ....and that controller doesn't have dual shock anymore, they lost and now they can't use it.
