Aaron Greenberg Responds To Statements Made By Kaz Hirai

Torrence Davis of The Bitbag writes, "CVG quoted an interview posted in OPM with Sony's Kaz Hirai. Kaz put the gauntlet down and said that the 360 has no longevity. It's not often you hear Sony execs laying the cards on the table so I found this very interesting."

Whoa! Fight Fight! There's a hole in his statement though.

"I can’t imagine any scenario where the PS3 can catch up with us"

The 360 only rallied ahead of the PS3 in sales right after the price drop. If the PS3 does indeed drop their price again sometime this year then it's going to be like the early part of last year. That is just one scenario so start imagining harder Aaron.

Aaron Greenterd3170d ago (Edited 3170d ago )

"This sounds like an old hardware company that’s comfortable with its market position. That complacent attitude is out of touch with where the industry and consumer is today. This generation won’t be won over just hardware specs, but who can out-innovate when it comes to online and software. This is the kind of stuff that’s in our DNA, and frankly moves the console war onto our home court.

I’m confident we will outsell the PS3 throughout the entire generation by providing more innovation and building the best and broadest games library while growing our entertainment experiences on the leading online network. With a U.S. install base lead now of more than 7 million units (according to NPD), I can’t imagine any scenario where the PS3 can catch up with us. In fact, even if you doubled the current PS3 sales and Xbox 360 remained flat, they couldn’t close the gap until 2014."

ps. I am the biggest douchbag in the World of America
pss. we are not admitting that 360 sales are or ever were flat

Xbox Street Gang3170d ago

FINISH HIM! PS3 WINS FATALITY!

PirateThom3170d ago

It's funny, because "software" plays right into Sony's court a lot more than Microsoft's due to, you know, the fact Sony have more than 2 first party developeers.

So, yeah, I'm not sure what he's saying in this statement.

egm_hiphopgamer3170d ago

i can't wait to see what happens at this years E3 Aaron Greenberg VS Kaz Harai this will be amazing man www.thebitbag.com all day stay tuned for more of this on the hiphopgamershow Sunday and the Warzone on Friday we got this on lock enjoy everyone peace

Danja3170d ago

of M$ to ignore the rest of the world and believe that a console war can be won by the default of American figures only..

so what if the PS3 goes on to sell 30 million in Europe plus 10 million in Japan...that 40 million already ,plus they sell 20 million in America...but M$ is still ahead in America by 5 million , but is behind by 10 million worldwide are they gonna just forget about those figures..

and they have the worst software line-up coming into 2009 so if I were them I wouldn't be talking about software....and as for online PSN has caught up with XBL...

jwatt3170d ago

WOW this is entertaining and I can't believe Sony is starting this!

PirateThom3170d ago (Edited 3170d ago )

Funny thing about Sony, and in three gens it's something I've noticed about them, they'll take a lot of crap and never rise to it, they'll show themselves in a good light... and then everyone forgets, Sony have teeth. Notice how this direct attack has sent Microsoft instantly on the run so they've had to turn to sales figures?

soxfan20053170d ago

I've said it before and I'll keep saying it - the US alone accounts for about 40% of worldwide sales. I challenge anyone to name another single country that even accounts for half of the US's sales. It has nothing to do with ignoring the rest of the world. MS has significant market share in the other 60% of the world too. MS just knows what the biggest prize is in the console war. MS will do just fine in the rest of the world as well, even if they don't dominate elsewhere. The only country PS3 really dominates the 360 is Japan, and Japan accounts for only about 10% of the sales that the US does.

dznutz003170d ago

i hope im not the only one that noticed this but something was missing a big something anyone see any of these "" on Aaron's quote

PirateThom3170d ago

Aaron's repsonse is full, hence no quotes. Hirai's quotes are partials from CVG

Kushan3170d ago

Why do people get so riled up about stuff like this? For every person that says the PS3 is going to lose to the 360, there's someone that says otherwise. At the end of the day, neither console has "lost", both are successful and both will be here until the end of this generation. What do you think is going to happen, the PS3 is going to finally sell ONE more console than the 360 (total) and suddenly Microsoft's going to say "Ok, you win, we'll just pack our bags and leave, then..."?
Get real, people, debating which console is going to sell more in the end is like debating if it's going to rain tomorrow or not. You might be right, you might not, but in the end it's not going to matter, the world will keep on spinning.
Face it, if you bought a PS3, you've made a good investment and will have plenty of great games to play. And if you bought a 360, you made a good investment and will have plenty of great games to play.

Did you see what I did there?

IdleLeeSiuLung3170d ago

Aaron has a sound argument there and points to some facts instead of the castle in the sky like Sony.

Arrogance is Sony's biggest problem. If they would only take MS as a serious competitor from day 1, PS3 would do much better....

@soxfan2005
You got majority disagrees, but nobody has provided any counter proof. Instead clearly all the Sony fanboy comments here are getting the majority of agrees. The majority of the readers here got to be Sony Fanboys, that is the only way to explain this pattern.

pumpkinpunker3170d ago (Edited 3170d ago )

Sony fanboys still think it's the PS2 days.

how cute in a semi-delusional, borderline pathetic way. You guys, here's a newsflash-- the 360 has sold eight million more consoles than the PS3 along with TONS more software and is widening the gap as we speak. Just save yourself the money for a psychiatrist and medications by getting a grip on reality. jeepers, you guys make me a sad panda thinking about all the reprogramming you'll require.

Or didn't you get the memo? The PS3 sucks, guys. everyone I know who has one wants a 360 instead. sorry. true story.

ThanatosDMC3170d ago

They'll fight with software that Sony also has... you know, multiplats?

Wow, im surprise he called the other console out...

thats_just_prime3170d ago

"I can’t imagine any scenario where the PS3 can catch up with us. In fact, even if you doubled the current PS3 sales and Xbox 360 remained flat, they couldn’t close the gap until 2014."

The truth is just brutal.

And if the ps3 cant even catch the 360 how is it ever going to come out a head of the wii. Making the statement

“there’s no way that at the end of a life cycle our competition is going to have a higher install base"

all the more arrogant

Nicolator3170d ago

I want this guys to physically fight this E3.. now that would be entertaining. Hirai might carry a sword thou... shyt!. Greenberg hope he has some moves or something.

gaffyh3169d ago

@xbox fanboys - do you guys not realise that pretty much everyone wants a PS3 except you?

1. Seriously, the ONLY thing holding most people back is the price, as soon as it drops the sales could triple, or quadruple or more. This will attract the more casual gamers. Even now in EU, everyone wants a PS3, they just can't afford it yet. Everyone says they are waiting for a price cut.

2. 2009 and 2010 Sony has the best exclusives available, even if you combine the exclusives from all the other platforms. This will attract the more hardcore gamers, Killzone 2 already seems to be converting many Xbox-only owners.

If MS want to show that their console is good, they better get A LOT more games for their 2009 lineup. I can think of AT LEAST 22 confirmed exclusive games coming to PS3 in 2009 (most of which look amazing), and I can only think of 5 for 360 (most of which look mediocre).

Saint Sony3169d ago

Best laugh of the day, right there gaffyh.

It's really nice we have a person here who knows what the people of earth wants. I'm sure industry headhunters are right after you. People like you are needed.

Ever thought it this way though? "@PS3 fanboys, do you guys not realise that pretty much everyone wants 360 except you?"

To me the facts kinda tells that much more people have wanted 360 instead of PS3. Odd...but we all know Microsoft lies their sales numbers right?

mint royale3169d ago (Edited 3169d ago )

not to take sides here but unless you can show me how EVERYONE in Europe wants a ps3 you fail. Seriously. The problem with sony this gen to me is that they constantly overestimate the potential of the console. The ps3 is doing fine but the unrealistic expectations you sony fanboys have put on make it look like a failure when in truth it never had the chance to dominate like you said it would. It simply won't dominate this gen, the wii is the casual ps2 console this gen I don't see how you can argue this.

EDIT: @saint sony - Microsoft lies about their sales numbers when sony fans don't want to believe them. They have no evidence. Even more hilariously they try and came sony give out sold numbers and not shipped. My god thats deluded. :(

gaffyh3169d ago (Edited 3169d ago )

@Saint Sony - I didn't say everyone, I said pretty much everyone, and by that I mean PS2 owners cos they make up over 120 million gamers.

Also I do have a 360, what I'm saying is that more people WANT a PS3, than people that WANT a 360. The 360 is $199 it should have consistently huge sales at that price, but guess what, it's not. PS3 is unaffordable and still sells well, 360 is very affordable and sell pretty well.

Whatever there's no point arguing with an idiot like you.

@mint royale - How does sony overestimate their console? You are retarded if you think Sony should just say "yeah we are selling crap, X360 is better", same way you wouldn't expect MS to say the opposite. Everything Sony has said, which fanboys construe as arrogance, was to keep their PS3 prospects alive. If they didn't say "Next gen starts with us", you expect them to concede and say X360 is next gen go and buy it? WTF is wrong with you, it's just good business.

mint royale3169d ago (Edited 3169d ago )

last gen ps2 owners want the wii more than the ps3 or 360. You think it was the hardcore that made up the ps2 numbers? No it was the 100 million casual gamers that are now mesmerised by the wii. Sorry but it just ain't gonna happen. I live in europe and I just see the wii dominating. In my local game store the wii has 5 shelves, the ds has 4, the 360 and ps3 and ps2 have 2 shelves and the psp has 1. Domination will not come with killzone. What will come is an awesome game that should make you not care that the ps3 will never do ps2/wii numbers.

EDIT: Notice I never said sony overestimates it. I said people like you talking about domination starting with.... It has become a feature of this generation sadly. Stop it already.

gaffyh3169d ago

Not saying that ALL PS2 owners will want a PS3, obviously the casual audience got a Wii, I'm talking about casual gamers (my definition is different to yours I expect), I mean people that buy a console for a couple of games like in EU most people bought Fifa or PES for their PS2 and that's it.

Also where did I talk about domination? 360 could easily dominate, if they get some games out in 2009, but their lineup sucks, and I'm seriously pissed off cos I won't have hardly anything to play on my 360. Halo ODST is probably the only game I will get, and even then I didn't think Halo 3 was great. The only thing selling the 360 is price, and that isn't enough.

But xbox fanboys automatically think 360 is ahead, they've beaten the PS3. That is not true, there's still everything to play for. Even the Wii isn't completely immune, who knows maybe people will stop buying it all of a sudden (although I doubt that lol).

mint royale3169d ago

yeah I get you point about people buying ps2's for fifa - I saw that alot last gen! But if they are casual, they won't care about brand they will care about price and it is here that the 360 and wii will always 1up the ps3. If I was buying a console to just play a few games I wouldn't buy the most expensive one.

The ps3's awesome lineup will convince the hardcore to buy it - the people found on here - but for awesome sales the ps3 needs to attract the people who don't play games so much. I can see people in my family buying a wii or ps2 hardcore or not but only the hardcore wanting a 360 and ps3 and this is where the difference in sales is going to come from when all is through.

SL1M DADDY3169d ago

What do you get when one arse-hat drops the gauntlet on another arse-hat? A load of crap, period. Sorry, but it's just sad when the flaming wars of fanboys reaches as high as corporate Sony and MS these days.

Primetimebt3169d ago (Edited 3169d ago )

Greenberg comments still shows how much Mircosoft is a virgin in this industry. They're nearly at a price cut away from a PS2 price point but the sales still reflect a slightly higher growth than that of the first xbox. The rate there going they will only have outsold the original one by 10- 15M in the same time frame. Call Sony arrogant but I think they seem to realize this and after all smack M$ was talking they simple called them out on it. This is why they waited for christmas number to come in before they even bring up the point. There current price point below the Wii, and half the PS3 they're still only putting up a alitte increase of XBOX 1 type numbers.

I_am_rushin3169d ago

"This is the kind of stuff that’s in our DNA." You know that sounds strangely familiar.

Sony "High Definition it's in our DNA. HDNA." Anyone remember those commercials?

y0haN3169d ago

You gotta love Aarogant Doucheberg, he's trying his best.

acedoh3169d ago

SONY has something big coming. To make statements like Kaz made goes beyond Killzone 2. I am thinking a price drop. Also I think 2009 is bringing out the confidence that SONY hasn't had until now for the PS3...

Aaron on the other hand thinks he needs to open his mouth everytime anything is said about the 360...

dachiefsman3169d ago

@all the above.

I don't know whats funnier the fanaticism above or the idiolization of 2 execs who like the smell of their own farts.

not EVERYONE wants a PS3/360. I can name more people who could give to craps about gaming as opposed to those who like to.

NickIni3169d ago

I'm laughing so hard.

If you read the comments Kaz Harai did make, people are up in arms over nothing.

Microsoft have gone on the defensive because Harai WOULD LIKE TO THINK (no word spinning there Eurogamer) the PS3 was the market leader. He didn't come out and bash the 360, he just said he couldn't see it's longevity.

Ahahaha

uie4rhig3169d ago

That sounds about right, MS invented everything in the world, hell they invented going on the computer forever without paying a penny..

oh wait... ...

StephanieBBB3169d ago (Edited 3169d ago )

But guys there is NO WAY that the Xbox360 can have a bigger install base than the PS3 in the end of PS3's 10 year life cycle.

1. The xbox360 doesn't have a 10 year life cycle. It will get replaced in 2 years time, then I can assure you that the 360 install base won't grow at a rapid pase beacuse the 720 will take over. PS3 will still be on the market by then growing as the PS2 has done because thats how sony strategise. If Microsoft can keep on producing games with equal or better quality for the 360 and 720 then the PS3 It may change, but that would cost a fortune and wouldn't be worth it in the end.

2. The software line up of 2009 for the 360 doesn't look as good as the PS3 right about now. And as they both are GAMEING consoles I would predict that GAMERS will go with the console that has the hottest games line up.

3. Microsoft counts consoles sold and as the 360 has had a huge failure rate people have wiended up buying 2-4 consoles over the course of 360s life time. And if you use some common sense you will know that buying 2-4 consoles instead of 1 makes a huge difference in sales numbers but neccesarily not in software sold. This IMO indicates the mysterious advantage PS3 has over 360 in EA labeled games sold.

4. NPD sales doesn't count for sh*t as the sales of the rest of the world is more important than NPD sales.

Im not a PS3 fanboy im a realist and I tell it like I see it.

*Edit BTW whad'dup HHG! =) looking forward to the new episode on sunday. pz

Death3169d ago (Edited 3169d ago )

The PS2 which has sold over 150 million units worldwide is all but dead today. This is a best case scenario for any console. The PS3 has not followed Sony's traditional lifecycle in any way. It was last to the market, has the lowest market share after 2 years and is still at the highest price. Unless demand justifies production, the PS3 will have a much shorter life span. In all honesty, the PS2's lifecycle already ended. Sure, they are still manufacturing hardware, but what about software? With the largest user base in history, the weekly and monthly software charts rarely see a PS2 entry today. The PS2 is no longer relevant and hasn't been for awhile now. How does the PS2's lifespan impact owners today? It really doesn't.

NPD doesn't count? Norht America represents approximately half of the market worldwide for the Xbox 360 and over 40% of the PS3 worldwide. It is by far the largest market today with Europe coming in a close second. No matter how you slice up the regions though, the PS3 is over 8 million units behind worldwide and the console has been out for over 2 years.

-Death

StephanieBBB3169d ago (Edited 3169d ago )

1. First off compare the PS2 intallbase to the xbox installbase. Do you see how a longer life cycle impacts sales now? Sony has also said that they are aiming for a 10 year life cycle so if you want to state otherwise then go ahead.

2. You missunderstood as I said that what Aron greenberg is saying that 360 is winning in the NPD both in software and Hardware sales. I ment that this doesn't count if the 360 is loosing in the rest of the world.

3. Give me solid proof that the xbox 360 has a 8 million hardware lead in it's installbase over PS3 in the whole world. NOBODY can prove this, It's impossible because so many factors can be manipulated so the other one has an advantage. For an extreme example. If some guy bought 1 million 360 consoles then that 8 million lead is only 7 million in installbase but still 8 million in sales. That doesn't mean that Microsoft can say that they have a 8 million lead on installbase over the PS3. The only way this would be possible to pin point is if EVERY 360 console in the world had an internet connection hooked up to it and a gold/silver membership active. Then Microsoft could check how many users they had and give us an exact number of thier installbase.

Shadow Flare3169d ago

"out of touch with today's market" is what i think of when i look at your console aaron greenberg. Broken hardware, old hardware and no HD-media format. No wifi, no bluetooth....no first party developers = pretty piss poor 2009 game line-up. So don't be in a hurry to say Sony is out of touch, when it's so blatently hypocritical of your own console. 360's ahead in sales. Got it. They fail in everything else.

There's a REASON the 360 is dirt cheap

UltraNova3169d ago

Dear Aaron,

I would like to inform you that the United States of America is not the only place the PS3 and the 360 are sold. I know this might be shocking for you to hear but it is the truth.In fact the USA only accounts for like a forth of a consoles market in the whole world ! Oh I forgot to tell you that yes they have discovered in recent years that their is a place called THE WORLD besides the USA if you can believe that! Yes its unbelievable right? Places like Europe, Asia, Australia etc...which might actually account for 3/4 of a consoles market (by the end of its cycle). Hope this helps!

Regards UltraNova.

Beast_Master3169d ago

When people respond to comments and do not answer the critisms. Kaz says basically 360 will have a shorter life cycle which means they will not be around long enough to "Beat" the final PS3 sales figures because their hardware is not built for a long life cycle (which if you disagree with you are living in a fantasy world). Instead Greenburg doesn't address the comment he says basically well we will keep innovating the software and no comment on the hardware.

GREENBURG call me when you can declare that you believe the 360 hardware is built to last longer than 3 years dumbarse!

Rapture3333169d ago

I thought I distinctly remember this guy saying he has better things to do then bad mouth the competition? Does anyone recall?

Rhoic3169d ago (Edited 3169d ago )

What in the world are you talking about? The software attach ratio is horrible for the PS3. Not to mention their games on average don't sell too well at all.. and don't give me things like "Oh well LBP has already sold over 1 million!" That should have happened a long time ago. In fact, there's only been 1 game to sell like a 360 game on the PS3 and that's MGS4.

The software attach ratio for the 360 is 8.1 games per console. The average price for each game is $59.99. Then Xbox LIVE comes into play with the XBLA games people buy off of it. Not to mention the $49.99/year deal with XBL which could also be included as software sales.

Exclusives? No. They don't matter when you look at the 360. ANY game can sell if MS does good with marketing. And that has already been proven. Sony can have all the first and second party devs they want, but when these games like Resistance 2, Little Big Planet, Haze, SOCOM, etc. are not selling, then it doesn't really matter. And yes, sales ARE all that matters to these companies.

Microsoft also has 36+ games that have sold over a million copies compared to Sony which has around 15-17 I believe.

I myself own 18 retail games and 11 arcade games for the 360.

You do the math.

Also, go by this:

"This generation won’t be won over just hardware specs, but who can out-innovate when it comes to online and software"

-As stated in the article

infamousinfolite3169d ago (Edited 3169d ago )

I wasn't aware of the 360 having a software line-up this year. lol it just didn't dawn on me that there was any games coming for the 360 I thought Gears of War 2 was all that was left.

On-topic: Yea Software is in our favor this year. Not going to list all ('cause there's too many) but some like Killzone 2, Heavy Rain, and God of War 3.

"This sounds like an old hardware company that’s comfortable with its market position. That complacent attitude is out of touch with where the industry and consumer is today. This generation won’t be won over just hardware specs, but who can out-innovate when it comes to online and software. This is the kind of stuff that’s in our DNA, and frankly moves the console war onto our home court.

I’m confident we will outsell the PS3 throughout the entire generation by providing more innovation and building the best and broadest games library while growing our entertainment experiences on the leading online network. With a U.S. install base lead now of more than 7 million units (according to NPD), I can’t imagine any scenario where the PS3 can catch up with us. In fact, even if you doubled the current PS3 sales and Xbox 360 remained flat, they couldn’t close the gap until 2014."

It looks like Aaron Greenberg is getting a little nervous there, eh? lol

Shepherd 2143169d ago

man, this site is like 80% PS3 users who always rally against every compliment made towards the 360. You all must feel pretty good about yourselves considering no one who likes 360 can ever be right when the majority of the sites users drown them out with misinformation and sh!tty predictions. Killzone 2 is already the greatest game ever and no on has even played the final version yet. PS3 will take 09 even thougt thats what the said about 07-08 and they were wrong. Someone says they enjoyed a 360 exclusive and they get murdered with disagrees and loss of bubbles. Sometimes people get disagrees on here if they dont have a sackboy, Kratos, Snake, or Killzone avatar i bet. The 360 will last for several more years, it has longitivity, much like it has for the past 3 years that i have thoroughly enjoyed my $50 a year superior online service and dozens of great multiplats and exclusives. But hey, let the disagrees roll in.

pippoppow3170d ago

Guess thats why 360's 09 lineup looks so amazing.....yeh.

Sarcasm3170d ago

Are you guys crazy? Of course Microsoft is innovating.

They've innovated numerous ways to buy third party exclusives and even get Halo 3 to receive 10/10s everywhere because of $800 worth of free SWAG.

Very innovative indeed.

Screw making games, that's not the point. Because Aaron greenberg knows that the 360 fanbase care more about sales numbers than the actual games themselves. So why bother making any good software? The 360 fans don't want them. They want sales numbers!!! And that's what MS is delivering for their fanbase. Sales sales sales. Screw quality 1st party games. Screw games in general. Sales is what really matters.

:)

no-spin3169d ago

The NXE is their version of the super 360. I DO like the update, (install games to hard drive is a relief with the crappy hardware), the netflix service is very good indeed, but these are not the type of innovations that influence the console industry, but they are improvements nonetheless in their console.
Sony has a rocky road ahead, but is possible. The PS brand is way too dedicated to their consoles, and the PS3 will have its success, even if that means selling less or equal to the 360. A price cut would influence greatly the console sales.
At the end of the day everybody wins, the market is huge, and many gamers are buying both consoles.

Xbox 360 and PS3 are great consoles. Only time will tell which console comes out on top.

I am just tired of hearing companies say they are right on the get-go. There really is plenty of time for both Sony and Microsoft to really make something happen that could change everything. Right now? Soon? Who knows?

think what sarcasm was tryiing to say is that the AAA multi plat titles don't push consoles sales as much as an exclusive does, which microsoft is lacking this year. except if your FF13, which is going to push a crap load of ps3's in japan.

ceedubya93169d ago

The only exclusives that have really pushed consoles this gen have been:

1. Halo 3 -360
2. Gears of War - 360
3. Metal Gear Solid 4 - PS3
