Sony: Our PlayStation Exclusives Against Anyone's

Sony's senior VP (of marketing), Peter Dille, has stated that his company will be launching "the most aggressive marketing year in its history", this year. First with Killzone 2, then God of War 3.

Now, this does not mean that GOW3 will be launching in 2009; simply that the marketing will. However, seeing how late the company has left the push for KZ2, we wouldn't be surprised of the marketing started on launch day.

Equally interesting from Peter, is his contention that Sony "employs more people in development than Microsoft and Nintendo combined" and that this, according to Dille means that, "We'll put our exclusives up against anyone."

Fortunately Sony Can Back it up
The PS3 has the Best Exclusives !! No doubt

mint royale3216d ago

but I don't appreciate arrogance in PR statements. Sony best not go back to their arrogant 2005/6 stance. They lost alot of respect then but have been getting it back in my eyes recently with top quality games. I wish sony and microsoft would follow nintendo's line and stop talking crap about the other consoles.

spectyre3216d ago

I don't see his statement as arrogant. He's basically saying he thinks Sony's games are the best. He gets a hefty paycheck from Sony so what else is he supposed to say.

I happen to agree with him and the only thing I get from Sony is an empty wallet.

@1.1 How can you say its an arrogant statement when you agree with him? But back on topic I haven't seen a single Killzone 2 ad and its only 4 days away. So I have doubts about this big marketing push they are talking about.

Whether they have the best exclusives or not in my opinion comes down to personal taste.

The only PS3 exclusives I would buy if they were on the 360 are MGS4 and Valkyria.

ape0073216d ago

I want gta 5 to be ps3 exclusive

gta is one of my favorite games ever

DJ3216d ago

He's showing Confidence, not Arrogance. I say Confidence because he's actually telling the truth. Sony's got the largest amount of high quality exclusives, many of which are Very innovative.

ToastyMcNibbles3216d ago

i dont watch tv but ive had my father and cousin both tell me they've seen the killzone 2 bullet ad...i just hope they continue to advertise the game heavily up to release and after

N4360G3216d ago

Nintendo doesn't talk crap because their console and games are just that,crap!!

1ikedamaster3216d ago

I disagree. Those are extremely arrogant remarks to make, then again that has been sony's attitude ever since they were beat to the punch this gen.

Lifendz3216d ago

I can't think of one 360 exclusive I would want so I guess it is all a matter of taste.

pippoppow3216d ago

Now it's time to stand up confidently and put a hurting on the competition. When there is truth behind it why not state it. So many fanboy pro 360 sites spewing misinformation on a constant bases requires a rebuttal. This years line up is looking superior to all others with the Wii second and the 360 a distant 3. Couple the lineup with all the other good things going for the PS3, it is looking to have quite a good year to say the least.

There's a ton of 30 second advertisements of PS3 games on veoh.

They have already started their Killzone 2 marketing campaign. I've seen two commercials already on TV. It's the bullet commercial. If God Of War 3 isn't enough for the public to go out and buy a ps3 for, than nothing is. NOTHING!!

soxfan20053216d ago (Edited 3216d ago )

God of War III is more likely to be a system seller than Killzone 2. GOW3 is an established franchise, and it is a platformer, which will appeal to more people. KZ2, while it may be a great game, might be a bit too hardcore to appeal the mainstream consumer who is on the fence as to which console to buy. On the other hand, both are M-rated, and killer apps are never rated M, so that may not help. Gran Turismo 5 on the other hand, if it delivers what is promised, may turn out to be the biggest system seller - if it is released in time to make a difference in the console wars.

SpoonyRedMage3216d ago

I think God of War is much more hardcore and has less potential to sell systems than Killzone 2. Killzone 2 has caught the interest of the wholly apathetic whereas most God of War fans have probably already got PS3s as it hasn't got as wide of an appeal.

InfectedDK3216d ago (Edited 3216d ago )

I agree - GoW 3 and Gran Turismo 5 will be the biggest system sellers.

Most of those who really loves games like God of War and Gran Turismo only owns a PS2 right now. (Maybe Wii or Xbox360 but they will probably switch).

PS3 system sellers top 15 in my oppinion:

01. Gran Turismo 5
02. God of War 3
03. Killzone 2
04. Grand Theft Auto IV
05. Metal Gear Solid 4
06. Final Fantasy XIII & Versus
07. LittleBigPlanet
08. Uncharted 1 & 2
09. Call of Duty 4 & 5
10. Resistance 1
11. Fifa 08 & 09
12. Assassins Creed
13. Guitar Hero
14. SingStar
15. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

I know there are many good games like, Warhawk, Heavy Rain, InFamous, Ratchet and Clank, Heavenly Sword, Folklore, Valkyria, White Knight Cronicles, M.A.G, Socom, Buzz, WarDevil, Yakuza 3, Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice, Demon's Souls, The Agency, L.A. Noire, Quantum Theory, Siren: Blood Curse, Africa, Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Wipeout HD, Resistance 2, MotorStorm: Pacific Rift, Bioshock, Burnout Paradise and the list could go on!

But I believe those 15 is or have been the reason for people buying an PS3.
