On Tuesday July 5, 2010, Sony uploaded the first episode of the anime Queen's Blade onto the PlayStation Network for free. However, they took it down two days later after they were informed of the show's mature content by IGN, and relisted it as a $2 purchase in the store's paid anime section.

The PlayStation 3's launch was delayed a year after the Xbox 360 was released, supposedly because of a short supply of blue laser diodes, a "$0.05 component" that were used on the system's Blu-ray drive to read Blu-ray discs. Former PlayStation executive Phil Harrison elaborated:

"In this particular case, the shift from red laser to blue laser was actually quite a sophisticated change in the way that the optical head on a drive worked, and it was a little bit of physics and a little bit of chemistry mixed together, because it's really a crystal that you're making. And they just couldn't make enough."

According to a report made by BBC's Watchdog, 0.5% of the PS3 60GB launch released would suffer from the infamous "Yellow Light of Death" (YLOD) approximately two years after its purchase, and since the PS3 warranty was about one year, Sony would offer a refurbished console in return of the faulty one, for £145 up until August 2009, which since has been changed to just £128.

Sony responded to the report by saying that they "have serious concerns as to the accuracy of these allegations and the likely tone of the Watchdog report" and that they "think it is highly unfair to suggest that from an installed base of 2.5 million that the numbers you mention somehow are evidence of a 'manufacturing defect'".
