Reeves: "PS3 will be 'the winner' by March '08"

At a special E3 event this evening, SCEE president David Reeves announced a new PS3 bundle for Europe. Comprised of a console, two games and a second sixaxis controller, it will cost GBP 425 / EUR 599 - the same price as the standalone machine previously retailed for.
Following the announcement, GamesIndustry.biz sat down with Reeves to find out more about the decision not to do what SCEA did and introduce a straight price cut - plus the new PSP, future plans and who's going to win the next-gen console battle.
GamesIndustry.biz: Now you've made the announcement about the PS3 bundle for Europe, what kind of reaction are you expecting?

its hard to me to understand all the complainers. ok so no price cut, but instead you get a bundle pack, for the original price of the unit, that includes two platinum selling games and a controller, so a value of 160 Euros, for FREE.. yet, people will complain and complain and complain, too funny.

wii win the so called "console war" because of the demographic. if u take my bubble because u disagree with my opinion, then ur abusing the bubble system.

ReconHope3690d ago

consoles if profiting dont need 2 sale more, they can all have respected places in the market.

ReconHope3690d ago

everyone will be happy to what the wii is offering 2 casual gamers and what the xbox360/ps3 is offering 2 the hardcore.

MyNutsYourChin3690d ago

I see you enjoy using your bubbles and have made worthy comments in the process. In my opinion, you deserve a bubble for your mature and reasonable posting. Have a bubble.

I'm just replying here because I want everyone to read my post first.

Check.

I'm a PS fan. I love the Sony brand and their first party studios etc and even I'm calling bullshit on this one. There are only 5.5 million PS3's in existance, by March 08, I guesstimate 11 million MAYBE. Even if everyone in the world bought a PS3, there wouldn't be enough manufactured to "win". There aren't enough units being made. It's impossible. This article fails.

Edit: Just read all the comments under mine now. Seems it's a unanimous consensus...PS3, 360, Wii fans all agree, this aticle fails It's pure bullshit. People should just shut up when no one asks them to speak ffs. If it was up to me, I would wring Reeves and Tretton by the neck. Phil Harrison should be the ONLY person who speaks for Sony. He's respectful to gamers, to the competition and he has a very honest and modest view of his company.

microsoft and sony recieved 4 there multiple skus that next gen they will stick with one. Its better 4 the consumer, no confusion...

30ROCK3690d ago

Oh I'm so confused! Which one do I buy???

That's not how things work.

Sony will have 1 SKU anyway. Once the 60GB is gone later this year, the 80GB will drop Motorstorm, and at least 100 off the price.

"PlayStation 3, you will see, will be far and away the winner when you look at it by March '08. They really, really will. It's something that is going to be a slow burner, and suddenly it's like a tsunami; it will just overtake you."

...with comments like that it makes you wonder where fanboys get their angst. Not! Man, is SNE feeling it or what after that E3 blast?

Stay on tar - get, Stay on tar - get.......

hahahahahahahahahahahahahahah ahaha !

I understand that "Reeves talks PS3" is the technical title of the story, but the comment worth gleaning from the interview with GamesIndustry.biz in which Reeves states, "the PS3 will be 'the winner' by March '08". What came out of his mouth during that interview is the shocking part worth import. This is not flamebait - it's what he actually said during the interview, no?

razer3690d ago (Edited 3690d ago )

has about as much truth as "The PS3 will be the winner by March 08".

-10 respect points.. =)

@Madden : You know I'm just giving you a bad time.. You are passionate like everyone else on this site and always have good things to say.

Maddens Raiders3690d ago

I regret that you've taken umbrage with me stating my true thoughts on the article and that you've lost respect for me.

Well, razer all I can hope is that your other acquaintances aren't built on such shifty foundations, that allow respect to be lost from one's personal opinion and interpretation. I'll leave it there.

HokieFan3690d ago (Edited 3690d ago )

Sorry Madden, you said it yourself, "What came out of his mouth during that interview is the shocking part". You titled the article with the "shocking" part of what he said instead of the article's real title. The title of the article should reflect what the article is about, and that statement is not the point of the interview. It's one small comment in a much larger interview dealing with many other issues.

From the Urban Dictionary:
Flamebait:
An email, usually to a message board, written with intent to offend\anger\enrage other persons, so that they will send a flaming email in reply.

Didn't you change the title because you knew that the headline would enrage people? It certainly doesn't reflect the main point of the article. I think this is the very definition of flamebait.

Even if it isn't, the guidelines of this site specificially say, "Please do not change or edit the headline in anyway unless necessary. Always use the same headline as the source story." So, I think I was right in reporting it, and it should have been changed before people approved it.

PS360PCROCKS3690d ago

absolutely have to disagree your making a bigger story out of an interview. You can't pick and choose what you want the title to be...

Maddens Raiders3690d ago

with the titleing of this article. I guess taking applying editorial discretion to the crux of the artricle did more harm than good. I still don't see how a man or woman's comments can automatically be labeled bullsh1t simply because of the company or organization they tend to be affiliated with. Let's not miss the larger issue at play here which is that SCEE is trying to push the 360 out of the way in Europe despite the SNE console having a higher pp compared to it's worldwide counterparts. All other google subtitles have it (the article) titled as I have it and the Games Industry article states that he "talks PS3". Well aren't both true, and isn't he talking about *MORE than just [PS3's]? Think about what I'm saying before you blast me. I am being forthwith and am totally open to your concerns for all of my future posts. May I remind you that I've posted many, many times in the past and the scrutiny has never been at a higher level since after the PS3 launch (and that's a fact). I know a lot of people state that N4G is being taken over by PS3 fanboys but I can attest that the 360 contingent is strong, alive, and well on N4G. Just look at the opposition to the post in question as well as coutless others. Guys remember, this is a war. A war. A war. A war. A war. Let's grow up and be men about it. Both of these companies are fighting for our dollars and personally I think it's a barrel of laughs and whale of fun in the meantime. Lighten up a bit, yeah?

cheers to you all

PS360PCROCKS3690d ago

Nah man I totally agree with you I just think that choosing a certain quote to make a story is wrong. especially because it will only ignite fanboys to reunite and act dumb...I think you do a good job I was not jabbing at you I just hate articles that get turned into flame bait.

HokieFan3690d ago

You asked why I reported your story, and I explained it. You changed the title, and that is specifically against the N4G posting guidelines. With the title you chose, it seemed to me that you were just trying to create a flamewar. I have nothing against you, I didn't mean to attack you. I'm just trying to help keep to the guidelines that the creators of this site setup.

The man has integrity but I'm not sure what he means by stating that the PS3 will be the clear winner by March 2008. The clear winner of what? A larger fanbase? More revenue than any other company? More games? What?

Technology wise, the PS3 destroys the Wii and slightly cripples the XBOX 360.

Games wise, the PS3 and Wii are in the same boat and with 3rd parties showing interest in the Wii, it will stay that way. The XBOX 360 is the clear winner in the number and variety of games.

Fanbase wise, the PS3 has an uphill battle to fight considering that that Wii is like a sponge that absorbs the entire non-gamer community and converts them into new "casual" gamers. The XBOX 360 also has a large and loyal fanbase to contend with. But the good thing for Sony is that they still have all those fans that they hooked with the PS2. So maybe the PS3 will overtake the others in fanbase by March 2008 but I think only if better quality and interesting games are released for it soon.

VendettaWFT3690d ago

What exactly does he mean? Also, who still lets this guy talk, i mean everytime he says something I feel as though he is throwing Sony under the bus everytime.
