The ScrewBe very careful when you take apart your Sony electronics in the future, some poor sap was charged almost 62 Euros for a “Special Screw” for his PS3 or approximately $82 USD. There is no possible way that any screw short of being made from some precious metal should ever cost more than a dollar or two at most.  Sony, you get a Corporate Idiot award!

    This is insane.

    You should post this over at MyBiggestComplaint.

    The guys at the hardware store would have an absolute field day with this. I bet this thing would cost less than a dollar at home depot.
