    psp The Modchip Review Sham - Worrying for Newbs

    Yesterday it was highlighted to me that 2 sites had posted the same review and the second site even went as far as to watermark the images from the first review, now this brought outrage (not from us we just laughed ) from members and visitors of both sites.

    Well today the 2nd site has posted that the review was actually a Press Release that was sent out, now this is worrying, what the hells going on when a company is sending reviews out as press releases, the other worrying thing is that neither site really mentions this but they really promote the review.

    Now this modchip isnt cheap and what the PSP scene needs is truthful and unbiased reviews because the price of these modchips can be up to $99 and more.

    I wont mention the sites as most know who they are and theres probably more who posted this "Press Release Modchip Review" but be honest with the scene and your visitors.

    Im sure other people will want to comment on this

    you guys remember "snake oil" salesmen, from like the civil war era (in america. i know there aer a lot of euroean adn asian members here as well.) eff it. lets just say early 1800's. anyways, they would hire people to take the elixer and exclaim that it healed them or something. anywho, same thing. tho im pretty sure that this kind of advertisment is frowned upon, and even rejected in some business circles. ipod doesnt review their own product.

    kinda makes me laugh.
    the only thing that im afraid of is the psp scene turning into a total cecst pool of cheapness and lies. well, lets just hope that DCEMU keeps on bringing us quality news about this and a great environment to discuss such matters in as well =)

    lets see a unique review on the modchip from DCEMU
    not to rock the boat, but wouldn't getting "paying for reviews" be the same as the posting affiliate links to lik-sang with "newly released" games whenever your RSS feed updates?
    :: PSP Lua - PSP Lua Games and Homebrew
    :: PSP Skins - PSP Skins, Wallpaper and Templates
    :: Anime Avatars- Anime and Cartoon Avatar Gallery
