Kotaku video interview with Peter Moore on PS3 configurations,price drop, PSN.
with Peter Moore. He always seems cool calm and collected. And he is correct Sony critisized Micro about 3 Skus, and then turned around and did the exact same thing.
I agree. He always seem professional.
we said the Wii was a gimmick then rushed to put half ars tilt crap in our controller once we saw the wii. Then we said rumble was last gen, Now we are all jumping up and down it is coming back, and of course we would not pass on a chance to dump on MS for 3 skus then do it ourselves too. Hey we are sony, just a bunch of wannabes and copy cats, but we will say it is an innovation and our ignorant fans will be more than happy to agree and spread our word like we came up with idea, go sony.
How do people disagree with you? Can any of you show me examples of where he wasn't very calm? Or did you disagree cause he made sony look bad?
Right at the beginning of the video Peter Moore asks, "what price drop, its still $500", is he stupid or something? Come'on Peter Moore, stop bullsh!tting us, so you're telling me that going from $600 for that SKU to $500 is not a price drop? so am i stupid or something and just cant do math? cuz my math tells me, that's a $100 difference. And then he asks "what are they gonna do with it" talking about the extra storage on the new SKU's HDD. Well then Mr. Peter Moore, i will ask you the same question, "what are you gonna do with the extra storage on the Elite's HDD?" as he knows that Sony is also gonna come out with this downloadable movie sh!t too. So why even ask the question when he alreay knows the answer? its all just bullsh!t, bullsh!t designed to fool you. You's wanna talk about FUD. This is ridiculous! is this video gaming or fvcking politics? because it's starting to get just as bullsh!t as politics is, with all the lies, and deceit, and spin. It dispicable, but then again, what am I saying, corporations have always sounded just like politicians, after all they are all cut from the same cloth. And this sh!t about Sony only selling the 60GB PS3 for limited time and then just sticking with the new $600 80GB SKU is just fvcking stupid on their part. Completely and utterly stupid. I swear i have never seen a company make more mistakes then this Sony does. Jesus! and you wonder why you are geting your ass kicked. How do these idiots end up running these companies anyways?
microsoft and sony stick with one sku. i think its better that way 4 the consumer.
MS/Sony should focus on making one sku which can both be accessible to hardcore gamers and casual gamer. If they plan on making different sku's they should emphasize that the different models have the same hardware.
Why not have multiple SKUs if it means more people would be able to purchase the item. More SKUs mean more choices, more choices means more customers. How would people feel if car dealers only sold the fully loaded version of all of their cars. Or stereo equipment makers only sold the top of the line stereos. I'll tell you what would happen, the prices would be too high and people would be reluctant to purchase it. Kinda like the PS3, don't get me wrong, it's a great machine, but some people can't afford, therefore the either get a 360 or the even more inexpensive Wii. It's simple economics. Sony, stop using multiple SKUs an excuse, it's not that the general public had a problem with two SKUs, they had a problem with the price point. Sony came up with the SKU problem all on their own.
i get what your saying but dont u think the 60 gig price cut but then the 80gb still for the same price, is a bit much?
I think what sony should have done was permanently reduce the price of the 60 version to 499.00 and perhaps released to new higher capacity sku with a 160-250 gig HD in it since they are claiming it to be more for downloadable content. Because when you're talking downloading HD movies, the 20 gig difference would be eaten up most quickly. IMO OR they could have also done something cool like release the 80 gig version with two rumble pack sixaxes controllers for 599.00
All Sony is doing is releasing a bigger harddrive fools. Thats to be expected. MS on the other hand, said, no need for HDMI, and then turn around and bring out the Elite.
Microsoft stated that they will release HDMI when they felt that the market called for it. If you're gonna comment on what someone said at least try not to slant their words.
Hey. both companies have been doing a lot of talking, espically Sony! This is a fun fight to watch and we all play a part in who's right by voting with our money!
IT looks like there gonna talk about games first then bring in chicks later:P
He is horrible needs to grow some hair already. BTW why talk about PS3 when the main issue here is that all your x360s are gonna break eventually.
he gives you that George Bush - sit - down - have - a - beer - and - shoot - the breeze - attitude, but really this was just PR driveling and downplaying of another competitior's offering which is absolutely w/i the norm. I found it interesting though and of import that he states, "what is PS3 going to do with all of that storage?" Uhmmm....hmmmm. & Please don't bring up sku's Peter (you started all of this.lol) And he went on to say that they (SNE) needs to get their online system going and bring into critical mass. Mr. Moore my free online experience is terrific I might add, and the critical mass point came for me when I downloaded the KILLZONE II trailer in full HD during E3, not to mention full games from the PSN store capable of full 1080p HD. Yes Peter, it's not LIVE, but it's growing and coming along swimmingly. And ver. 2.00 isn't even here yet. Overall, decent interview.
Peter Moore's comment on what is sony going to do with all of the storage was really a pun to say, where's the downloadble content. ie movies, music, etc.
The fate of the console war is riding on two people siting on chairs :(
I'll agree that this PS3 SKU thing is a bit confusing, but why the hell is he asking "What are you gonna do with all that storage?" Didn't Microsoft just release the 360 Elite? With 120Gb of space? Does he not know about Sony's plans for downloading movies? How can he criticize Sony for having multiple SKUs when Microsoft themselves have 3 SKUs? Isn't the Elite their the 3rd SKU? He doesn't understand what Sony's online strategy is going to be? Has he heard of Home? I understand that Moore has a lot to do and think about, and it's easy to miss things here or there (and that he probably did, which is understandable), but he needs to stop criticizing things for being confusing when he hasn't fully looked into those things himself. It's better to say "I'm not going to comment on that because I haven't fully looked into it" rather than "I'm going to criticize it for being too confusing" while ignoring the very real possibility (or, in this case, certainty) that explanations are out there.
I'm waiting for the day when someone sits Harrison and Moore down in the same room for an interview, so that they can call each other out and be forced to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but.
Yea, cause they couldn't have a death match; Harrison would take it no question. Console Exec final showdown. Sony's Phil "The Giant" Harrison v. Nintendo's Reggie "Kinda looks like a child molester" Fils-Aime
Sorry guys but he should really be silent Sony has 2 skus right now witch ONLY differ in harddrivespace. MS has 3 -core ( no harddrive) -premium ( harddrive ) -elite ( HDMI ) -and a 4th coming with is falcon Sorry but ms should just shut up for developers its a damn pain in the ass ms has all those different specs. on the sony side its just about harddrivespace with doesnt interest anyone at all. Also doesnt sony forbid you to use standard harddrives for personal upgrades like ms who charge you insane amounts of money for standard crap. Im definatly not taking sides here but he talks crap. I also got a 360 witch i (would) love but im selling mine and will ONLY get a new one once they get there reliability crap back up couse i have my 2nd broke unit ..........
"what is PS3 going to do with all of that storage?" ??? I dunno Peter, what is the 360 gonna do with so little space? And if it doesn't need it, I guess neither does the Elite.
just to make it really intresting let's throw reggie in the mix. Lol with his brash attitude somebody might go to blows. I can see it now reggie braggin bout current success. Phill braggin bout past success, and Peter bragging bout microsoft cash reserves. Good times.....Good times.
I'd pay to watch it ;-)
Bloodmask.Can't understand why you have so many disagrees - Peter Moore does come across as calm and focused ,plus Sony have turned round and done exactly what they criticized MS doing.Pathetic from both Sony and those here that have disagreed with your comments. I may end up getting a PS3 but i sure don't respect the company one little bit for all their lies.Probably just end up borrowing one if it comes to my wanting to play a great PS3 game. Did anyone notice how humbled Sony were at E3 this year.Almost as if they had been told off - funny as fuuck.
at least Sony's Sku's function properly for a longer period of time!
MS allways comment on their competitors.. Like "Wii is BS,Bluray is that, PS3 is blah blah... " and so on.. its rude.. and I didnt like that move (Sony said sth about 360 and HD DVD ) but sony did it once and a little one.. MS must shut the hell up .. PPL need everythin they want not everythin U want.. HDMI , third party HDD , multimedia Card reader , WiFi , HD player (Blu ray or HD DVD ) , Linux support ,relible hardware..... so do ur job : shut the F*** up and make a 65 nm COOL Bug free 360 for People and make some NEW FIRST PARTY TITLES for us...
PS2 emotion chip that allows my PS3 to play PS2 games without emulation, and instead use emulation for PS2 games like they have done over in Europe. Doesn't that help Sony decrease costs, and the extra hard drive space can used to hold the emulations needed to run those PS2 games.I would suspect that getting rid of the 60 gig PS3 is a long term price reduction solution.
what a dumbass question, what is PS3 going to do with all of that storage same thing you do with 360 duhh download games/movies/demos
that was a funny answer considering the elite has 120gb
Believe it or not the PS3 is more cheaper to operate than a 360 let me explain :for starters the PS3 has a Blu-ray player built in playing at 1080P :for the XBOX the HD DVD player is optional and that costs ($300) alone and get this it doesn't even play at 1080P it plays at 1080i :Microsoft doesn't have a built in camera inside the console through the TV for video chat have to buy a camera ($50) :PS3 internet and online play is free :Microsoft charges you $10/month which is an extra ($120) a year :PS3 offers add ons to games and downloadable games for free to save money and continue your games to save money. :Microsoft you have to buy a whole new game $60 do I have to explain now look at the real difference in price to operate and play PS3 = $600(same price)and w/ the price drop you save $100 dollars = $500 XBOX = $400 + $300 + $50 + $120 + $60 = $930!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this is just for the console I hate to admit it but it's the truth. That's a $430 difference now compare them side by side don't just look at the price in the package do some research before you judge or assume anything
Hey, I was reading your comment until you said that the add on HDDVD player for the 360 was 300.00. Then I stopped reading your comment because I could see right then that you don't know what the hell you're talking about. At least read a newspaper or something for a change so that you would at least have a bit of current events in your brain. Until then...STFU. PS. here is something for your to read about the Xbox360s HDDVD drive for starters: http://www.engadgethd.com/2... Oh one more thing, the XBOX360s HDDVD does display 1080p in VGA mode. Nothing's wrong with a person making a comment, whether it be positive or negative or even boasting on about a product. I just hate it when they just blatenly blow out a bunch of BULLSH!T just to hear themselves speak.
The difference between sony and microsoft haveing different skus is atleast sony has a hard drive in every console a consumer buys so the developers always know they have a hard drive to work with and it seems more and more needed into todays games. plus if sony is just getting rid of the 60 gig ps3s then all that will be left is the 80 gig, so still their will end up being just one sku to buy not 3 seperate ones.....just my thought
1: xbox live is 45-50 yearly, 8 bucks a month 2: SONY does not offer those downloads, they are developer specific. in other words they EA didn't offer Maddens stuff for ps3 but did on the 360 3: (PS3 offers add ons to games and downloadable games for free to save money and continue your games to save money) that's bull-ony! you're saying that if i want ff13, all i have to do is buy 12 and then MAGICALY download all of 13's content as ADDON's to the game???? in EITHER console, if i want a sequel, i BUY the sequel! 4: built in camera? NEITHER one does! you have buy em both! 5: are you stupid? 6: the network may be free, but a paid-subscription almost GARAUNTEES that it will be better. MS knows that when you pay for something, it means that you've esentially provided them the funds to MAKE THINGS BETTER, AND KEEP THEM THAT WAY! If Sony isn't making money off of the network, then they have to look elsewhere (like console pricing) 7: both units display 1080p, and NO, there is no such thing as TRUE 1080p. its a term much like "realistic skin" in blowup dolls. both add to the pleasure i guess;) 8:
the point is that videogaming "PERIOD" is expesnive! If you're worried about prices, leave these consoles on the shelf and go pick up a wii, GameCube, PS2, Xbox, or hell even DreamCast. My friends, the time has come to get a job! Pony up the cash! Buck up, or shut the ... up. Save a few if you can, but don't hate the game NOW, when it's too late. Should've let em know, we ain't gonna pay for that sh now we GOTTA!
The PS3 price cut is not realy a price cut and I think even Sony fans know it.
he asks what they're going to use 80gb of storage for, yet he ships out the elite with 120gb of storage.
Really? 1) I couldn't find a 20GB since the beginning of this year 2) 60GB was priced at 600 for that period. 3) 60GB is now priced 500. 4) ??? 5) Price cut exists! 80Gb is not here yet, but once 60GB runs out, 80GB will drop Motorstorm and drop to 499 or lower. Another thing. You're paying for online gaming. Sony whips MS in that department. It's free and some games have dedicated servers. Isn't it funny that PCs have been able to provide online gaming for free for ages? And suddenly Microsoft comes along with a restricted PEER TO PEER service and Xbots gobble it up. You don't need to pay, MS is raping you without lube. Sony will very soon have a superior service, and as far as we know, it's free. It may be slightly worse now, but holy sh*t it's not 50 dollars a year worse, and that's what MS is making you believe. ShiroRX - lol, that's good. Oh, and Kaz has said they only want 1 SKU. 80GB will be released in August, and they won't make any 60GBs anymore, so when 80GB drops down after 60GB is gone from shelves, they'll still have one SKU at a lower price, it'll just be better. They can't announce they'll drop the 80GB price since it will hinder 60GB sales, but logically it's obvious they will.
I agree with Desperado Sony has to eventually drop the price again if they want to control the sells here in the U.S and I heard rumors that the 60gb can run with the rumble six axis Sony already won from E3 by your votes Microsoft 34% Sony 46% Nintendo 20% Sony beat Microsoft by 12% and Nintendo by 26% sorry fan boys but the scores and votes don't lie
