Sony: The PS3 is in a marathon and not a sprint

Sony officials said on Thursday that their soft selling PS3 is in a "marathon" not "sprint" race in a statement made to GamePro.

"We developed the PS3 as a hardware that lasts for decades and believe we are in a marathon rather than a sprint," company spokesperson Nanako Kato said when asked by GamePro why the system was being outsold by rival Wii 6 to 1 in Japan.

The story is too old to be commented.

I ran the Boston Marathon in 06, and didn't go to work for the next 4 days. There I said it cause no one can stop me.

MS medic would have patched you up the wrong way and by the 2nd mile you would have had a heart attack.

why not get it later on when it's cheaper, and all the good stuff happens later on like release of worthy games and whatnot

The XBox360 is the marathon runner who maintains a sprint-like pace from start to finish, completely obliterating his competition.

A marathon runner couldnt go on without water.

The PS3 can't go on without software, which it is losing left and right.

That being said, IF there is some great software, PS3 sales will start to pick up, and there will be much rejoicing among cheerleaders.

<EDIT> : @ Disagreers. Just so you know, all the bubble-stealing and disagreeing clicks in the world won't make the PS3 sell any better. So give it a rest. Oh yea, that's not going to happen I forgot I was wasting my time trying to make a point to lemmings.

WTF I'm a moron for stating the obvious. Ok go watch some BluRay.

someone would disagree with the analogy but good one.

The games are coming as we know, but seems like there are only 3 games that deemed themselves as saviors for the console. You can also say, games to show potential. Well that's the only games people ever really mention. Well you know what they are. As if I would buy a console for 3 games.

The PS3 will rely soley on First-Party this gen, if more games become multi.

So yeah software is always key in the long run, just as water to marathon runners. Haha but then again, if you can't "afford" a nice pair of running shoes, your gonna be left behind.

It may be losing titles but its also gaining just as many. Every time I looked at a site I see it say PS3 has new exclusive.

Donkey Slayer3696d ago

it has been out compared to either the Wii or 360.

Next time do some research before making a fool of yourself.

Nice speech from Sony but we shall see who is the best marathon runner.

kewlkat0073696d ago

are very good marathon runners, and the PS3 was born black hehe so there goes your winner.
