Executives have a hard job and often say the wrong thing. Myarcadeplanet.com compiles a large list of Gaming Executive quotes with commentary.
“I can't comment on failure rates, because it’s just not something - it’s a moving target. What this consumer should worry about is the way that we've treated him. Y’know, things break...it's a complex business."
"Nobody is concerned anymore about backwards compatibility. We under promised and over delivered on that. It’s a very complicated thing... very complex work."
Moore's like the Donald Rumsfeld of gaming execs. And no, I haven't forgotten Kutaragi's "Jack into the Matrix!" comment. He's wild, but at least he doesn't cry about how 'complex' his job is.
Er, Sony fans scoff but:
"Nobody is concerned anymore about backwards compatibility."
Remember about a year later when all of a sudden Phil Harrison was commenting that backwards compatibility really WASN'T as big as they thought, and that the scaled-back Euro support made more sense? Whoops.
thats a truely desperate/scared sony fanboy comment...your now being ignored
interesting quotes. its battle of the bumbling idiots. between Moore and Kuturagi. Now if they got Bush involved. That would be hilarious
I actually took time to see if I could find anything from him; however the best I could do was this: a report from 1Up.com where the president received a copy of brain age. Read here if you wish: http://www.1up.com/do/newsS...
what happened to the 360 quotes ??
Well, SONY is a prime example of why companies have PR departments. The problem is, too many of their Chiefs get to spent a lot of time in front of the camera and the mic. These guys obviously aren't listening to what their PR folks are telling them, because they have said quite a few things this year that has made them sound completely out of touch with their customer.
Peter Moore just doesn't do well when he's under fire, bottom line. he needs to learn how to say "No comment"
"....tonight I'm going to show you a world of games that are fueled by high-definition graphics and sound, a world powered by a new generation of video games inspired by human creativity and driven by human energy."
Great vocabulary: "Powered by...", "Fueled by...", "inspired by", "human energy". Cut the bullshit, peter Moore. I must admit Peter Moore is a great marketer, lol.
"Next generation games will combine unprecedented audio and visual experiences to create worlds that are beyond real and they'll deliver storylines and game play so compelling that it will feel like living a lucid dream."
Lucid dreams... for f*ck's sake, lol @ Peter Moore.
Edit: Above, stop the damage control. So you admit the stupidest quotes come from Peter Moore. You see, "no comments" on red ring of death would be stupid too. Then again, I don't blame him, it's not his fault that the whole X-box team decided not to add backwards compatibility, to rush Xbox 360 out the door, and deliver the worst quality ever in a home console.
worst quality ever?
i would disagree with you on that. You obviouslt never owned a cd-i or a jaguar
Worst ever eh? This guy is a f*cktard... That would explain the single comment bubble. lol.
I haven't had to blow into my xbox360 yet before playing a game ala the NES, and it still plays DVDs a year after owning it unlike my PS2. And even if the hardware had a high failure rate, they were fixed/replaced for free which= good customer service. Bad customer service is setting a console at a price of $599 and calling it a BARGAIN!
These consoles are not the next generation consoles. All we know they could make better consoles. But in these consoles PS3 is the best one.I agree Xbox 360 Games > PS3 games but PS3 > 360.
summury = All consoles suck but PS3 > 360.
Nintendo thinks there is only room for one high-power console in the market?
Explains their Wii strategy but I have to wonder if it'll hold water once the price cuts begin and the margin between the Wii and competition (especially 360 Core) starts to shrink. Combined with recent comments that Nintendo is gearing up to manufacture 1.5 Million Wii's a *month*, this could get nasty...
This sums up their strategy perfectly...
"The games industry is like a 'big village.' The centre of the village is the most active and healthy part of the games industry and by staying there, it means you can no longer see the outside world. There you'll be pampered and be surrounded by enthusiasts. But a few years ago, I heard in society that Nintendo was losing its place from the centre... It gave us the chance to slip away and understand the game market more... We've been calmly surveying the market and it's not that we're no good in the games industry anymore; it's just that we've surpassed being a 'village company' and in the centre of the spinning world, we've had a chance to think about how Nintendo should continue in its existence. It was a good opportunity and that's when we came up with the catch phrase, 'something that people aged 5 to 95 can enjoy.'"
Miyamoto as quoted by Game Brink
I like the last quote by Miyamoto, it sounds so right to me..
its also nice to see NINTENDO hasn't made any stupid quotes..
though that 35million WIIs by 2012 is kinda getting there in my books.. i wish they kept their predictions hush hush so we wouldn't be dissapointed when they don't reach their goal.. (at this point it could go either way)
There was one about how people don't want multiplayer by them, but I couldn't find the direct wording... I remember reading it a while back...
Mostly, the Sony/MS quotes get pushed around due to the closer proximity of their systems. The wii is a different audience.
"I never try to look for what people want and then try to make that game design."
That one is just priceless.
no wonder Ken Kutaragi was forced to resign. he just doen't know how to translate what he means without sounding like an arrogant japanese person. that's a shame.
I think we all know who lied more.
Reading your link has made my day. It's just too funny, and thing is, i own a PlayStation 3.
nice find, and to top it all off, there is a link to nearly every single thing on it. and so the good thing is all the Sonyfanboys cant say anything about it.
a link as proof, how poor is that? lol, i can give you a link with 100000 complaints about the 3 rings of death, thats proof for the crappiest console ever!
Obviously, evidence is incompatible with fanboys.
Tnx guys for appreciating it, feel free to use it whenever you feel fanbois are getting out of control.
