What is it your afraid of here Chris? Last I checked you don't even have a PS3...So what is it your afraid will happen if the world bends over backwards to help those in need?

Why is it when ever people want to turn their backs on someone else's need they ask questions like "What if" when the person in need is already in a defined situation?

"What if" it was your son who was disable and looking for help, who wanted to play a game and there was a way he could, would you want Sony to make the effort then.... How deep must the knife go to touch your heart... I ask because each of us has a knife that waits for us and it ALWAYS finds us...unprepared...What if when your knife finds you I was there to help...would you take my hand?

Would you give your hand to another? What if we always did? ":O}

I'm not saying we shouldn't have compassion for this guy, but there is an extent to as far as we should go. You mention relegion well isn't it god that put the limits of what we can do. The blind can't see and they are limited, people like me can't do free fall rides or join the military. Its the limits we have, the better idea instead of bending over backwards for a group of people to make every game have the same experince for everyone is to instead for these people to except there limitations on life. IF we make them get the same experince we do, our games would no longer be fun for us honestly.

There is a gentleman by the name of Stephen Hawking that would speak to the contrary.

In fact, you could enlighten yourself, and be more engaging by showing an effort to open your mind a bit. You could start with A Brief History of Time.

Regardless of anyone's religious conviction, "God"[in whatever way one views Him] and "Science" are inextricably linked. They are not exclusive of each other.

Here's what I think your missing here... it is not up to me to tell what you can and cannot do. It is not up to you to tell others what they can and can not do. One must go out into this world in any shape one finds them self and try and make one's way.

As you have posted, at one point you said "If you will give me medical care I can't provide for myself I can go on living, go on trying to benefit this world and myself.

You spoke your need and because it was met by others, because others were willing to give to you, your still here. You don't need to tell the blind what they can and can not do, they will find their limitations on their own.

You need to make a strong place in your heart to meet whatever limitation they find with an unconditional willingness to try, at very lest really try to ease their way in this world as your way was eased.

Until you see and realize the limitation you have voluntarily place upon your self

You will need blind men and women to help you see. You will the blind to show you the way. you will need the infirmed to heal you, you will be in the care of the disabled until you can learn to walk...." Let those who have eyes see, let those who have ears hear...." "there are NONE so blind as they who WILL not to see."

I offer you a blessing if you already have the grace to receive it. I can not give you that grace, you must wander in the darkness until you find your need of it. Then you must wander until it can be received by you, then you must wander until i it is given to you and all the while you will need the blind to lead you.

The blessing I offer you is this You are only half until you try to help your brother to be whole.

" Let those who have eyes see, let those who have ears hear...." "there are NONE so blind as they who WILL not to see."

Joke "Blind gamer went into orbit after winning against NASA's decision to hire him in the -cleaning team- unfortunately as the shuttle crashlanded into the Eiffel tower we realise that making him a copilot wasn't the smartest choice either !"

Only a complete fool does not fear the consequences of his actions. You are betraying your self with every post made in this vain and I have zero doubt that your karma is at work making a greater fool of you with each post you make.

The more you laugh at the disabilities of others, the more disabled you become...

I've warned you about incurring blindness though willfulness and now your blindness is there for all to see... just ask others here if this is not so....

There is a huge difference between pleasure and safety.

You not joining the armed forces, that's a matter of safety. Not just yours, but also those around you.
That a blind person can't get a drivers license is the same.

That you can't do free fall rides due to passing out - well if they were changed so you could now do them, they wouldn't be a free fall ride.

If all it requires is a few lines of code, or that the options be spoken rather than text only or that larger text be selected. It can be done, it has been done. Why shouldn't they do that.

If it requires major changes where the item is changed to become something else, then tough go do something else.

If 'they' had the same experience as 'us', 'they' would be 'us'

If 'they' had the same experience as 'us', the experience would be fun or not for both.

I think you need to pull your head out of your rear, and actually think about it a little before you mouth off.
