Hirokazu Hamamura, The president of Enterbrain, which is the publisher of popular Japanese magazine Famitsu, gave a lecture about the current status of the console market.
He stated that unlike the Wii, the PlayStation 3 has many exclusive games that belong to famous franchises, all previously released for the PlayStation and PlayStation 2. The bad thing is that most of these games don't even have a release date and that raises doubts among the fans. Once they are released, however, Hirokazu Hamamura assures that the PlayStation 3 will be in better situation than it is today.
He gave Final Fantasy XIII and Metal Gear Solid 4 as an example. As the two most expected titles for the PlayStation 3, once they are released the console will sell many units just because of them.
In addition, Hirokazu Hamamura claims that the PlayStation 3 might be cheaper by the end of 2007 due to Sony's new chip technology.
