Try saying that to Microsoft. They charge an insane amount for their online functionality, force you to buy ridiculously expensive specialised HDD drives and their point system causes you to spend more than you intended to, especially with the pricing of a lot of products (there's a ton of games that cost 1200 points, meaning you have to buy 1000 points, then 500 points seperately, costing more. There's almost nothing going for a simple 1000 or 500). Then you have the insane cost of Kinect, which they're marketting as a near essential item, despite its apparent uselessness, nonfunctionality and lack of decent games to go with it (also overpriced).
Furthermore, to cancel a subscription to XBOX Live, when you realise how pointless and expensive the service actually is (I get more use out of my free PSN account anyway), you have to use a telephone service (there's an option on the website to cancel, but it's greyed out in Europe), which is extremely poor quality (near impossible to hear what's being said on the other line), puts you on hold for 20 minutes or more (way more for me) and asks you questions with no prior indication of this knowledge being required (such as the secret question for your original Microsoft Live account, or the card number used to pay), causing you to have to start all over if you don't have this information ready, all to put you off from cancelling your subscription, keeping their pockets lined.
On top of that, the PS3 is only slightly more expensive itself (and is FAR better value for money), and that's only recently, and depends on the model opted for.
...So yeah, if you think Sony's ripping off it's customers, that's nothing compared to Microsoft.
EDIT: Blast! Ninja'd on almost every point!
