This is an intriguing tale. One full of mystery, supense, chills and thrills. Is one story better then the other; or can the two learn from each other and lead gamers into gaming bliss.
The future vs. the present basically. And you can actually see it in work too. Ps3 leading in EU and Asia = future 360 leading in America = Present Different cultures, different shopping methods.
The wii = past, and the wii is leading everywhere, what does that mean
a lot of rabid sheep out there. ;)
the Wii has nothing really to do with the PS3&360.
I like the Microsoft strategy more, but it looks like the Sony strategy works better.
MS has stated themselves that they focus on the present and Sony's strategy has always been the future and long term sales. So how can you disagree with that?
Microsoft Strategy was to buy/acquire other business/company,just look at their history trend, back on topic M$ main strategy has always been the "NOW" and Sony has always been the "FUTURE" or "LONG TERM PLAN". At this rate between SONY and M$ I think Sony plan is pretty stable, whereas M$ Short term plan or what they call the "NOW" seem to also working, but it would not last since it sort term and will not have a longer period success or a greater impact as to SONY long term plan, therefore each company have two difference vision to the goal they have in mind
"M$" belongs over ------> Use MS please. It makes what you say more appealing.
its either you make 1st party games or you buy a bunch and hope it all works out for the best and unfortunately that's what M$ is doing
MS are buying exclusivity because it's much cheaper than holding 1st party devs and doesn't breed resentment of being forced into doing work you don't want to (why bungie left). MS can still go out to the companies and give them cash to make games.
I like Sony's strategy more. Focus on 1st party exclusives, and use their resources wisely and efficiently. While Microsoft's strategy seems good at first-buy up as many third party exclusives as possible, one has to wonder if they can keep that up until 2009/2010.
are amongst the current and coming PS3 exclusives . More than half of them and the real heavy hitters are not out yet. I think the Playstation brand is trying to cater for even more 'core' gamers first and catch up in North America whih explains certain decisions concerning the profligation of specific genres.
ms-good games now.....nothing later sony....good games coming nothing right now. there's no pleasing this jerk....what he wants is good games now...good games later...and good games after all that....while he's playing the good games now. he's asking a little much...i don't think any company, (even sony with their extensive 1st party devs) can constantly pump out games like that.
SONY's Strategie = To WIN (It WILL) ;) Micro$oft's Strategie = To LOSE!!! ;-D (It WILL AGAIN...xBox 1 where are you???) ;-D
This guy brought up many valid points
