Sony did this with pretty much every major release. The best example was the original demo for the "emotion" engine- the original FF7 trailer from e3. The same thing happened- promised perfectly cool graphics, delivered what looked like crap comparitively.
Now FF7 was one of the most impressive demo for a Sony system. Again. And the final product will under-deliver by a wide margin. Again. (according to every hands-on with the system we've so far seen)
I just don't get how people fall to the Sony hype machine.
Person 1: OMG Killzone looks great!
Person 2: Too bad that was all CG.
Now am I talking about this year's e3, or the one when the origional Killzone debuted? If you guessed "this year", "that year", or "both", you're correct!
Again- I'm not just flaming. I really do want to see Sony do well with their system because I want all of the next-gen systems to be competitive. It's just a proven fact that Sony absolutely lies to consumers. All of the companies do- I'm not blind. But Sony just seems to be the worst.

"I can release PS3 anytime I want!"
^Kutaragi less than a month before the date was pushed back.
I no longer blame sony for lying, I blame the fuggin retards that eat it up and believe every thing they see and hear from them. Granted, sony is very underhanded, moreso than the others as you mentioned, but Ive learned to blame the people that believe it without hesitation, they are the ones that keep the fire alive.
Kutaragi is a waste of skin. he made that comment like 3 weeks b4 it was finally announced the thing was delayed. Everyone knew it was impossible, yet he says its on track
he belittles his fanbase by doing so and the zombies are too stupid to realize they are being played for fools. His naivety knows no bounds, the man is a total waste of skin.
