Tretton: PS3 has seen phenomenal momentum

via TeamXbox, Jack Tretton has released this press statement in response to the recent NPD results:

"Leading into a pivotal season packed with blockbuster titles and unique online service offerings, consumers have chosen the PS3 as their home entertainment console of choice - showcased by its year-over-year sales growth of 155 percent. With its commanding line up of software titles and enhanced movie playback capabilities, the PS3 has seen phenomenal momentum with a software sales increase of more than 234 percent and additional studio support of delivering content in the Blu-ray format.

The dual platform release of the much anticipated Grand Theft Auto IV title reaffirmed its legacy on the PlayStation platform with a 6 percent higher attach rate than Xbox 360, reinforcing consumer choice of PS3. Poised for continued momentum, PS3 is delivering on its breadth and depth of exclusive titles to its gaming fans with today's prized exclusive title launch of Metal Gear Solid 4. The media have hailed 2008 as the year of the PS3, and with solid sales and growth opportunities ahead, we feel consumers are saying the same.

- Jack Tretton, president and CEO, Sony Computer Entertainment America"

These gaming executives need to shut up.....they are annoying as hell. The only one I could tolerate was Phil Harrison, he was pretty cool.

These other guys are just annoying.

Unless these gaming executives are announcing new releases or new features, they need to keep a lid on it.

EDIT: btw, didn't notice this game from an Xbox orientated site....pretty surprising.

TeamXbox usually handles news really well. They don't usually get into the fankid sh/t slinging that other kiddy sites get into.

Most likely it is the year of the PS3..Sony just need to get the games out to its fans and not delay it.This month the PS3 will sell even more since MGS4 is a big system seller...This E3 i hope they show lots of exclusive games!! I am getting tired of mulitplatform games they are not able to push the power of the ps3..

Sony bring the games!!

They are doing a good job over at Sony. Alot of new IP's and great Sequals in 2008.

Syronicus3840d ago

The "Sony PS3 has not games" argument died about the same time the "RROD" argument died. Sorry, but there are a ton of games for the PS3 and some of them are the greatest games to hit the market regardless of platform.

muddygamesite3841d ago

True, they are pretty good for a website that is supposed to be an xbox website. i give them alot of respect for that. Gamersyde however cough cough xboxyde cough is just full of snotty pancake heads.

"PlayStation platform with a 6 percent higher attach rate than Xbox 360"

Clinton5143841d ago

Similar to how MS tries to spin up ABSURD sales ratios as well as ludicris hardware comparison charts.

Ri0tSquad3841d ago (Edited 3841d ago )

I'm sorry, Tretton is just pointing out a fact.

Panthers3841d ago
