This plus the battery recall and poor selling PS3 will prove to be an expensive lesson for Sony.

Well, I hope it will serve as a lesson, but how ‘expensive’ it will really be is yet to be seen. Also, it does seem the PS3 sales have ‘taken off,’ although when it’s sold by including free titles, that skews whether or not it sold by its own merits, or because of the free titles offered with it. So, whether it makes Sony change some of its cavalier attitude toward quality control is another matter altogether.
