Sony faces up to cadmium problem

Looks set to lose out, big time

Last week Sony ran into trouble with Dutch customs authorities over the levels of cadmium in its PSOne cables. This meant immediate cessation of all PSOne sales and the grounding of 1.3m consoles and 800,000 accessories. Following on from those reports, Ananova is now saying that Sony will lose up to 125 million skr on the Nordic withdrawal of PSOne consoles. Ananova's story is based on one written by newspaper Sydsvenska Dagbladet in its online edition. New PSOne consoles that meet EU regulations will be shipping shortly, a Sony spokesperson was quoted as saying. Sony was also eager to point out that the increased levels of cadmium in current PSOnes will not effect consumers, only the environment. That's okay then.
