Sony Boss said what?

Sony Boss said what?

Published On July 14, 2008 | By Jeremy White | News

Many of you who are reading this at this very moment have either played or do own a PS3, Wii, or both. Today, some rather, shall we say, odd,comments came out from Sony’s boss Howard Stringer:

“I’ve played a Nintendo Wii. I don’t see it as a competitor. It’s more of an expensive niche game device. We’re selling a lot of PlayStation 3s now and it’s still the best way to buy a Blu-ray player.”

Ok, woah, back up. It should be neither here nor there for me to state my opinion on this news story, but do you guys really believe what he’s trying to sell? How is the Wii not a competitor? Especially when in fact it is kicking Sony’s tail in terms of sales and overall popularity from people who always have loved games to people who are just now starting to play them. And the term “expensive” doesn’t seem appropriate here as the Wii’s price tag is a measly $250 (compared with Xbox 360 and PS3). And what do you all think of his mention of the Blu-ray disc player? Let the commenting begin.
