    Should have put this in the PS vs Xbox forum and changed the title to "Sony Are Nicer Than Microsoft".

    Nice to see a company take responsibility for the mess up and offer a token of good will.

    It's pretty nice that the would do this... it would be even better to fix the problem though.

    What? sure Sony are going to carry out construction work on a convention centre they do not own? and only use a few days for an expo being held by EB GAMES?

    The convention centre only uses ground/first floor normally, but due to that large demand they offered option to open up/create temp second floor that doesn't have wheel chair access.

    here is the OG post on facebook by the guys affected

    I'm not talking about right there, right now. I mean, don't let it happen again.

    It was an oversight... just like they said. Something they didn't think of. If they make sure that doesn't happen again, it's going to be ok.

    there were 4 people there together with wheelchairs? something weird about that. were they disabled like real disabled people or those football players with a cast?

    anyway, where's my wheelchair, going to the next show.

    i don't have a heart? maybe so but at least i have a pretty face.

    I'm disabled myself. Not in a wheelchair but part of it a weakish left leg and arm so I can only use controller with one hand. Anyway, I've always been a strong supporter of handicapped rights. What Sony just did was one of the best things I've ever heard about, and a company going that far. Sony just made me a lifelong supporter/customer. Great Job Sony.....great job.
