Father Final Fantasy versus Father Playstation

Very interesting tidbit in the latest edition of EGM Magazine. It seems that Kutaragisan is NOT on Sakaguchi's friends list. Could be one of the reason why Sakaguchi supported Microsoft and their endeavors in Japan (speculation). Interesting quotes about Wii and Microsoft's Japan strategy ...

As for supporting Nintendo's Wii, Sakaguchi said, "The system is intriguing, but right now, I have no plans on making a game for the Wii."

But Sakaguchi isn't exactly smitten with Microsoft, either: "Microsoft has to change its marketing strategy in Japan. There are a lot of excellent games on the 360, far better games than what's on the Wii or PS3. But not a lot of people in Japan have a clear idea what games like Gears of War are all about. Just look at the Windows Vista commercial -- it's terrible."

No link to full interview ... sorry ... only in the latest EGM issue

This guys has became such a fanboy since Mistwalker was finance by Microsoft. This guy is a true fanboy and we all know this by now. The wrong kind of fanboy, one influenced by money not bye the truth. ps3 and Xbox are both great but this is BS.

"The system is intriguing, but right now, I have no plans on making a game for the Wii." = No eye for money making opportunity for this guy. Speaking of the PLAYSTATION 3 and the visionary, "The machine's architecture is tricky, and I don't like Ken Kutaragi." = The Sakaguchian Way of being a pu**y.

No love for Ken equals no game from him.

I like how he rags on the Vista commercials.

Nah he's just direct with his comments.

When sakaguchi gone from Nintendo to Sony "Ohh! he is a genious!" .. now he goes from Sony to Microsoft "Such a fanboy .. why we ever cared about him? just because he made the most memorable games on playstation? worldwide based."

A console without games is nothing;

The title is about the father of playstation/PS3, but in the text we almost read nothing about one of the most important quotes:

"When asked by EGM why he had no projects planned for the PS3, Sakaguchi said, "The machine's architecture is tricky, and I don't like Ken Kutaragi."

Why was that just left out?

Wasn't purposely left out. I don't think the story is that the machines architecture is tricky. IMO, that's a very weak excuse. I think its more that the two just couldn't work together.
