Hi guys, take a look at this... seems that MS was playing a technicality at the CeBit show and Sony decided to be immature and packed everything up.

IMHO, Sony probably did this so that rumors would spread that MS is a "big bad giant" that bullied Sony out of CeBit.

What stupid little fruits. Sony was being dirty as usual and payed the price. They couldnt swallow there pride so they packed up and left.

Kinda like the fat kid we all picked on that left with the kick ball huh?

Sounds like how the Russians acted at this years Olympics. No offense to any Russians out there but that was pretty lame.

Sony has shown PlayStation consoles for the past three years without any problem, and the Messe said it would not have worried about the situation if no one had complained.

Translation. We never cared before about sony breaking the rules and letting people play their PS2s. With all the cash they gave us we basicly let do what they wanted. But now MS was complaining we had to do something.

Actually Microsoft wasn't the only ones to complain either. I think most blame should go on the Cebit officials. Sony had been breaking the rules for three years and apparently no one had the balls or perhaps muscle to complain and be heard. Not even Cebit.

I still think it is a stupid rule but for once MS followed it. :)

Cebit? who the heck is that? no wonder they blow... I think I will stick with E3, Spaceworld, and the rest of the good ones.

From what I understand is that MS had employees demonstrating on the consoles which is perfectly fine. Sony could have done that as well but they didn't have enough staff to do such a thing. So it just comes down to not being prepared on Sony's part. Guess they just figured they could get away with playable kiosks again for the 3rd year in a row.

Who was going to stop them? Microsoft? :D
