Financial news was not so good today for Sony, however. The AP reports that the company's stock price dropped 2.75% after concerns of erratic PS3 performance (read: overheating and reset) issues at the Tokyo Games Show. From the article: "About 200 PlayStation 3 units were clustered together in close proximity and housed in kiosks that concentrated the heat generated by their processors and provided poor ventilation ... Overheating under such circumstances is a common affliction at trade shows, afflicting not just Sony products but those of its competitors ... [a Sony spokeswomen continued] 'For a normal player at home, there shouldn't be any problem.'"
But Sony apparently told Business Week that problems were caused by a "one-of-a-kind" temperature irregularity not something as common as suggested above. We can appreciate the aforementioned 200 units being demo systems, but was the problem a trade-show standard, "one-of-a-kind," or something else altogether?
