Xbox 360 is “inconsistent” and “doesn’t even work” says Sony

Sony’s VP of marketing, Peter Dillie, has criticised the Xbox 360 for it’s profitability, inconsistency and reliability. Speaking at the recent E3 event, Dillie said:

I don’t want to be argumentative. But I take issue with Microsoft either having a long tail, or being profitable, because they’ve never done either. They’ve never made a dime in this business.”

With the Xbox 360 you’ve got an inconsistent design, some have a hard drive, some don’t, and none of them have Blu-ray, and the HD DVD will be out of business in a matter of months. Is this a ten year product?”

“It doesn’t even work. Do they want to be selling it for ten years and refurbishing them all for ten more years? I don’t think that’s a ten year product. You could disagree with me, or they could disagree with me, but I’d put that up against the PS3 any day.”
