In the second part of the 'Edge interviews hardware big cheeses' series, we hear what Phil Harrison had to say about Sony's recent performance at E3, and the company's controller issues.
if this guy can't remember how poor his own sony press confernce was, then either, he's a thick idiot or he's on some serious class A drugs!!
i personally think most of the Sony camp's on drugs, and that's why i've applied the new PR post!!
What is he on? The guy look stupid when he was asked.
There was a general feeling that attendees came out of this year's presentation less enthused than they were coming out of last year's. His answer was stupid. He responded by saying.
Yeah, I agree with that, and I don't quite know why that is.
I guess, um, when something is new and exciting and heard for the first time, that elicits a certain reaction emotionally, compared to when you're just confirming something that people already know.
He really believe this was the first time people heard about the PS3. Okay.
I am still not sold on PS3. I will have to play it to make a real decision. They have just stumbled a bumbled their usual hype. And have you noticed that the PS3 fan boys (ackira) are accusing Microsoft of hype all of a sudden.
I agree with all 3 of yall. And yea achiraa is an asshole.
i think you are on drugs. the presentation was better than the ms hype show.
If he's on drugs, its only because he took them out of your medicine cabinet. Microsoft's show destroyed Sony's. Based on audience reaction ALONE, its easy to tell who made the biggest impact.
At MS's show everybody was showing real enthusiasm; clapping and cheering throughout Cliffy B's GeOW demo. And they were riveted in their seats for the H3 announcment teaser - the theater cheered over the mere GLIMPSE of the Master Chief through the smoke...and when it was over, they roared their approval.
Contrast that with Sony's show, where you could've heard a cricket fart. On multiple occasions, Kaz Hirai had to beg - actually BEG the crowd to applaud for embarrassed-looking devs showing their mediocre games....The only time the audience made any noise was during the infamous "Riiiidge Raaacer" incident...they laughed...and trust me, they werent laughing WITH him....
I think Achira is either a really little kid or he is being paid to be this dumb. Tell me what you think.
achira achira achira... lol
Were you at this years E3? Because MS didn't hype anything. They were the ONLY company that had playable games that were actually Next Gen and not ran on computers or other systems besides the system you are suppose to be showing off. It is what it is. It doesn't mean the ps3 will suck. It just means that their games weren't close to being showed off yet. Nintendo wowed everyone with a fresh new look and play to games. Ms wowed with top notch content that was playable and coming soon.
Your dean on man, I agree
what is funny is a couple of days ago he jumped on someone who said something negative about sony...
and yet he is always saying something neg. about M$
Achira must be a Sony employee. He is just a dumb as them!! Sony had the worst E3 ever!!lol...
Achira you are really funny. Go watch the shows now and see how the publics reacts @ MS show clapping and cheering. @ Sony's show they're almost death and further disappointed of the CGI showed @ E3 2005 and now they got almost nothing.
You are a real fanboy placing it like Sony had a good show. That's funny
yea I agree with all yall except achira who is an asshole.
achira your hopelessly lost in your love for Sony.
All of you think that peoples will buy a next gen console base on E3 presentation? If so than, where is the sky rocketing of M$ sales of there 360? All of you are just pathetic for being so ignorant. You come onto the Sony section and claim BS but can't back your BS up. Stop being a kids already and grow up for once.
I think E3 just reflect's Sony's attitude to gamers and the PS3. They pretend they don't lie, pretend the games look/play great, pretend that no one will notice them ripping off the wii controller and Live!, pretend everyone is happy about a $600 price point. Sony HQ must have one hell of a big bucket of sand for them to bury all of their heads in.
Meanwhile, back in reality, only people like sonyisgod and achira actually believe them. These are the people that they will suck $600+ from for a second-rate next generation experiance, because they believe every word that comes from Sony, regardless of how ridiculous, stupid, untrue or overblown it is.
Sony bank on these idiots.
You are correct with everything you said about sonyisgod. But how much you want to bet that all this Sh!t he been talking and he can't even afford a ps3.
E3 is for developers and console makers to show off what they have coming. Xbox 360's have been selling as fast as the stores are getting them. Its a steady 300,000 a month in the usa alone. Until they can get more systems out to the stores it will continue to sell out. I have talked to EB games, Walmart, and Best buy. Every store I go to has them on the shelves. I asked them are they selling. They all tell me that they get several shipments a week and sell out the day they get them. They also said everyone who buys them are surprised they are even on store shelves as most people don't know they are available untill they see them. World wide already above 5 million sold and by the launch of the ps3 they will be close to the 10 million mark. And 150 games by the holiday season. Ps3 will be lucky to have 10 games by launch from what they showed at E3.
this is you in the movie
I agree with wat all of yall said about sony is god and achira.
Im glad Sony's working on the quality of their controller and games but those controllers suck ass and motion sensing is ridiculous; it's not a good idea for standard gameplay (not like Wii). This guy is fullofshit
and that SOny show wasn't a hype show?? ALl i can say is bring a console to market and let us play it and see if it is as good as you say. Lets load up whatever and Gears of War and see what happens. I won't say MGS4 since that won't come out for another year they need to suck anpother E3 of hype out of their crown jewel. MS showed its real-time preview of it this year, they will have more at e3 07 and it will be out. Instead of sucking 3 E3s of hype out of it.
I can't believe this guy. Watching him try to dig his way out of the two SKU question is embarrassing. Yes, the 360 does have a version that doesn't ship with a hard drive, but at least it can be added in afterward. You can't do that with an HDMI port.
Although comments like this don't reflect well on Sony in general, I don't think it's fair to hold things like this against the PS3. After all, it's not like Peter Moore hasn't said things that become PR nightmares (back-compat).
except peter moore has the respect/intelligence to do something about a PR blunder.
Think industry news sonyISgod, it's on the home page and not just in you're so called PS3 section.
"Well, I think that the way I'd describe it is that the pieces of the puzzle are all there - PlayStation 3 is kind of laid out for everybody to see. The hardware was well understood and well defined last year"
the puzzle is all there?
The hardware was well understood and well defined last year?
I had think they even know if brokestation is a console or a computer, nobody even know the final specs and its downgrading, that´s $ony on his best. Ken and this guys really are patetics and sads. Give them the emotion engine please.
"The PlayStation 3 format is exactly the same between the two SKUs. Our competitor has a different format between the two SKUs - one with a hard drive, one without - but all PlayStation 3s have a hard drive"
And the hdmi?
"Apart from the extra hard drive space, the top-end model also supports wireless networking, top high-definition TVs and memory cards"
They really are exactly the same to me.
This is a horrible and sad interview, he seems PISSED to answer the question about "confusing consumers" and kind of was rude answering it, and who uses "UM" in their answers?
he claims the two choices in their sku's are not different because they both have a hard drive. only no HDMI.
but he said M$ are offering two completly different systems because one has a hard drive and one does not.
but with M$ it is the exact same system...you just have to buy a hard drive to make it the more expensive one.
with sony...you can not add hdmi connection to the lesser one.
Sony's way of thinking is off.
Sony had just recently state it in the psx magazine that the HDMI output will also be upgradable, so SUK it you stupid idiot. NOW can you say about that huh? are you going to say that the add on will be useless? or are you going to say the add on will take up the USB port. all you are bunch of idiot that can't get your fact str8.
ahhhhaaaahaaaaaa!!! SonyISdog, you. are. a. riot.
you're a funny guy now again go watch yourself ssj
So whats you're point sonyISgod? both 360's are the same in every way, not counting the add-on, can you say that about the PS3.?Both SUK's can be upgrated the same with new hardware and software in the future. Can't wait for the 100gb hd so a can use it with the core 360 i stated out with lol.
There are 3 ps3 fan comments and 21 xbot comments. You xbox fanboys are really pathetic i mean its amazing how concered you are with the ps3, you guys are despicable.
We all play videogames and yes i have a 360 and tend to favor Microsoft and thats only after being hardcore Sony for years what turned me was the fact that i went through 3 PS2's and they all broke and trust me i take care of my sh*t, i just think its ludacris that after 6 years they cant make a system that works with out breaking, i work at a Gamestop and the amount of calls i get a day asking if we fix ps2's is insane(old and new models) you might argue that the 360 has defects but the calls have drastically slowed since the initial launch almost to none(speaking for the store i work at)thats what turned me off to them...i read these and comment bc im looking for reasons to buy one of these and they arent given me any and im not gonna pay 600 and it f*ckin break not at launch or 6 years later like the case is now
Maybe you need to be more responsible and take better care of your console because me and everyone else i know has had one since launch and nothing was wrong with it.
this is industry news thats why there are 360 fans commenting. It helps if you actually know what you are talking about. It really helps prevent you from looking like an ass which you do. ha
And everybody I kno has had one since and after launch and all of theres has broke AT LEAST twice.
lol all i just tell them is ps2 killed xbox and is killing 360 ..point final!
You have proved no point. Doesnt matter how many ps2s are being sold.
WHy should the 360 fans call gamestop? when M$ came out and said call us and we'll fix it for free?
Not every person who bys a console jumps online a researches it the way some ppl do ts pretty much goes like this ex:Parent buys console for kind it breaks, Parents call store they bought it from to get a new one. end of story..ex: if you live in an apartment and somethin breaks be it stove or frige you call the landlord not the people who made you stove or fridge right?
Why didn't they ask him where the RUMBLE has gone
What's a controller without feedback? It's nothing. A console with a controller that has NO RUMBLE?
we could lived without rumble, untill the batman technology come out for the PS3.
Like i said in another post rumble is necessary for immersion what good is awesome graphics and story line if you cant feel like like your there. Videogames are and interactive medium, not a sit and watch medium like movies
A console that has nothing next gen?
The Xbox 1.5
A dumbass sony fanboy with no life?
Fu*kin sad bro every thing about the 360 is next-gen it's why Sony's doing all the coping lol better come with somthing else besides that child like response.
It's another nickname of ssj04/sonyisgodNOT again and so on.
And you'll know what my reaction is:
We at least have a next gen console, call it the xbox 1.5
You have nothing up to date due to lying and delaying Fony so go wait for your gaystation which can be called:
Which is less then 1.5
Now go watch yourself again:
See how peaceful it is untill Sonyfanboys open their mouths. F*CKIN news is news. Do you Sony fans ever think theres more 360 fans than PS3 fans because we have over 5 million "owners" of the console, and most PS fans keep their mouths shut cuz they know it would be stupid to boast about what Sony says because of their history plus the PS3 not being out yet.
And I don't see them crying about it, I don't see them dying for rumbles. You 360 fans act like rumbles is everything. Ooh yah I almost forgot, rumbles is the only that that all of you fool have going on for you, since your gaming system + games are crape.
Rumble is important to console gamers even sony ones who play the ps2. The only people who try to defend ps3s controller is dumb ass sony fanboys like you.
As for 360 games being crap, I got about 5-6 million ppl that would disagree with you.
PS If 360 is crap why is sony trying so hard to be like 360 and do what microsoft has done?
Rumble goes hand and hand with next-gen console gaming we're in the 7th generation of gaming and a $600.00 console should have rumble, it adds to one of the only things that makes console gaming next-gen lol
People buy PCs for multiple reasons not just for gaming. Pcs give you the option of playing games thats not their sole purpose PC's sell regardless of if they play games are not. Consoles are different the bc they are marketed as one thing playing videogames and videogames are and interactive medium, are'nt as necessary as a PC is in todays world and so they have to make it as appealing to consumers as possible and they promising an interactive experience and rumble hightens that. How many ppl played the first metal gear and at the beginning when you took the thermal shot and they told you to put the controller up to your arm, after that i remember going whoa that was awesome bc it got me into it and the millions of other ppl that played that game and those small tweaks are why metal gear is where it is at today. So saying rumble doesnt matter is insane
You would even defend Ken if he said the PSZero would be an *ssmate for homosexuals. Which would make sense with the gaystation
peoples that would agree with me about 360 system + games are crape.
first of all "peoples" isnt a word. What 100 million are you talking about. I didnt know sony sold any PS3s. lol
Are you trying to spell CRAP or GRAPE?
sonyISgod you seem like a little 12 year boy with a nasty mouth. So you claim Sony's like McDonalds, over 1 billion served and 1 billion different people ate at MC'y-deez one time. lol
Hahaha go watch yourself in this movie, you are this guy which can't write either
Xbox 1.5 and its games suck. MS has yet to sell 5 million consoles so i dont know what redmond boyzz is talking about. and he really sound stupid because there are more than 3x ps3 fans than xbox 1.5
MS has sold 5 million+ actually. And how many of these so called ps3 fans that you speak of have actually played the ps3. hmmmmmmmm
it's ssjo04 again with his other nickname! funny guy or was it g*ystation
360 only manage to outsell the PS2 one month (april) only. Average PS2 salse is 460,000 month Average 360 sales is 230,000 monthly. Now you tell me who is losing badly. haha losing to a PS2, now that is just sad.
you just don't get it. You can't compare the two. A 120 dollar PS2, and a 400 dollar 360 is uncomparable.
They sell 360's as soon as they get them, the reason why it isn't selling is such bulk as the PS2 is because the 360's supply isn't there. If it was it would.
A dumbass learn to read. I said PS3.
Good point Paul.
And those numbers are not the average numbers for either console fool. Those are the numbers from May. If I'm wrong put up a link b*tch.
