He honestly just says whatever is on his mind. He out and out dismissed MS' claims of dominance over Sony this gen, and was very 'to the point' about why they are introducing the new 80 gig. I like this guy.

Remember, competition and a little smack-talk is healthy for the industry! It means a greater focus on first-party games, third party software for every platform, and competing price-points.

This gen isn't turning out so terribly after all. (Unless you're a hardcore Wii-owner. Animal Crossing Wii? I'll pass. Still, Ninty is rolling cigars and wiping their a**es with cash, so I'm pretty sure that they don't care to cater to my tastes :) )

Cheers,

Good interview. Can't blame the guy at all. He had a good point. Microsoftl won't outsell in the PAL regions or Japan. They're pretty much screwed because the battle all boils down to North America.

"They won't in Japan. They won't in the PAL territories, so the deciding factor is North America and that I can't comment on--I just don't know the figures. But I agree with Kaz [Hirai] I think over a 10 year lifecycle... I don't see it. "
lol, he just owned Microsoft
