Edge Interview: Ray Maguire

Edge: PS3 hardware’s performing strongly then, but how do you feel first party PS3 software’s doing? Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg suggested yesterday that Halo 3 has outsold a large number of PS3 games – including the Uncharted and Resistance franchises - combined, based on NPD figures.

RM: Well I’m really happy with them because as I said, we’re selling more than we ever have done before. Secondly, I’m not too fussed about the competitive bits or people’s comments because at the end of the day, I’ve only got my focus, and that is giving consumers a great experience and great content and I don’t care what anybody else does. If we are doing that and if we are measured by the enjoyment and the engagement that we have with our consumers and we can have a successful business then that’s what it will be. Our DNA is about innovation and giving people technology that they didn’t even realise they needed at the time and about pushing the envelope.

deadreckoning6662960d ago (Edited 2960d ago )

I'm srry, who got owned exactly?

EDIT: 3 disagrees..no rebuttle???

"I may be going out on a lim here, but I think the people who got all hot and bothered with Greenburg`s stupid statement are made to look just as foolish as greenburg in this whole thing."

Finally, someone hits it right on the nail! Montrealien bubs up.

If ONE(a man uve never met, whose only crime was talking crap about another computer entertainment company) man's tweet causes a couple dozen people to lash out at each other, then YOU are the fool, not Greenburg. He's proly laughing his off at the comments made yesterday lol.

@Montrealien- Dude, its hilarious. All these companies are after in the end is money and these fanboys grow such a strong emotional attachment to these companies haha. Who cares if Greenburg talks crap about Sony? Its a COM-PU-TER EN-TER-TAINMENT company..not ur mother, not ur father, not ur first-born. ROFL, either this is one big joke or fanboys are one of the most idiotic sects in the entertainment industry.

@Lionhead- Yep, I sure do don't I =D If by getting "riled up" u mean mocking fanboys...then YES, I'm LOVE getting riled up quick.

"Greenberg is a troll. A professional troll, that is."

I agree 100%. What I'm saying is...why does his trolling bother people to the point that they call him "fat" or lash out on him. In case u didn't know, America is a free country and u can say whatever the hell u want lol. I can understand if u lash out on someone for speaking ill of a friend, son, daughter, or family member...but lashing out on someone who only said that game Z sold more than games A,B,C, and D combined. HAHAHAHA

Doc Sony2960d ago

Duhh... Greenberg got owned, his childish rant got struck down in style.

Greenturd expected Sony to stoop to his level but instead they just showed him the pimp hand.

ShinMaster2960d ago

Greenberg is a troll. A professional troll, that is.

He made a comment out of desperation, bringing up a game that's almost 3 years old.
The comment about GT selling more that followed up, was simply made to mock what Greenberg said. And A LOT of people missed the sarcasm.

Lionhead2960d ago (Edited 2960d ago )

Damn, dead sure does get riled up REAL FRIGGIN EASILY.

Edit: Well I don't blame you, you are just really defensive though lol

wages of sin2960d ago (Edited 2960d ago )

Dead,
There is no escape from that blackhole of hypocrisy and ignorance.
Bubbles for you.

@all of you in love with Sony's response,
You're all full of it. All the crap that Sony talks/has talked (Kutargi, Harai, Butler etc.,) and that's "the truth". Greenburg does the same, "That's typical M$ lieing to people!". What is wrong with you? Are you really that ignorant or are you truly stupid.

As stated previously in another post by IdleLeeSiuLung:

"So far, I haven't heard a comment that is worse than Ken Kutaragi:

* "The PS3 is not a game machine"
* "Beating us for a short moment is like accidentally winning a point from a Shihan (Karate master), and Microsoft is still not a black belt. Just like with their operating systems, they might come out with something good around the third generation of their release."
* "I believe we made the most beautiful thing in the world. Nobody would criticize a renowned architect’s blueprint that the position of a gate is wrong. It's the same as that."
* "Microsoft shoots for the moon. Sony shoots for the sun."
* "This time, Microsoft has stated clearly that it is going after PlayStation. However, they're going not after the PlayStation 3, but the PlayStation 2. They were looking at 2, and that's why Xbox 360 became like that."
* "With the PS3, our intentions have been to create a machine with supercomputer calculation capabilities for home entertainment."
* "The PS3 will instill discipline in our children and adults alike. Everyone will know discipline."
* "Microsoft is trailing behind us, but they are not a threat. They are good at improving [on products], but we will be advancing to the next level with revolutionary technology."
* "We’re not going to equip the PS3 with a HDD by default, because no matter how much capacity we put in it, it won’t be enough."

This one though is a direct INSULT TO CUSTOMERS:

* PS3 is "for consumers to think to themselves 'I will work more hours to buy one'. We want people to feel that they want it, irrespective of anything else."

Source: http://www.qj.net/qjnet/pla...

In fact, all of those quotes except for the supercomputer one is today (or ever) not a fact!

What is more shocking is the fact that Ken Kutaragi, the father of PS is conducting himself in such an unprofessional manner... So no company is perfect, as people will be people and when there are people there are plenty of idiots that should keep their mouths shut!"

Nevermind, you're the SDF.

CoxMulder2960d ago

Your comments are no longer funny nor interesting, cool the f**k down.

"Who cares if Greenburg talks crap about Sony? Its a COM-PU-TER EN-TER-TAINMENT company..not ur mother, not ur father, not ur first-born"

"Who cares if Greenburg talks crap about Sony?

"Who cares if ......... talks crap about ....?"

"Who cares if [random guy] talks crap about [Greenberg]?"

See the hypocrisy deadreck? SEE IT? Look closer..

Great response by Sony =D

Mature comment from and for smart people...

greentard for the others :)

sikbeta2960d ago

"And there you have it. According to the boss (Sony UK boss, Ray Maguire), they’d rather focus on engaging the consumer rather than inciting flame wars."

Totally True, while these fat-dude (Greenberg) talk about sales, PS3 owners got a New Exclusive Sequel:

Which is added to the Loads of Games Sony was Revealing and the Loads of Games we'll enjoy...

Montrealien2960d ago (Edited 2960d ago )

I love the reply Sony made here, it is a sign of class, no need to let yourself get taunted by a profesional troll like Greenburg and lower yourself to their standard. Many N4G users should take some notes here. Don;t let yourself get trolled by an idiot.

aaronisbla2960d ago

not sure why you're getting disagrees on this, bubbles

n4gno2960d ago

apparently, brainless son's of greeentard disagree :)

Imperator2960d ago

"only got my focus, and that is giving consumers a great experience and great content and I don’t care what anybody else does,”

And THAT'S why Sony is the better company.

zoks3102960d ago

A class A response to a class A a**hole, Greenburgh fail again.

madmonkey02960d ago

once again, Greenberg tries to big himself up, and once again, he is made to look a fool by Sony. well done.

Montrealien2960d ago (Edited 2960d ago )

its a flame war between two corporate entities in public. Happy sony is firing back though, I miss the cocky Sony PR from back in the day.

ShinMaster2960d ago (Edited 2960d ago )

"...at the end of the day, I’ve only got my focus, and that is giving consumers a great experience and great content and I don’t care what anybody else does.”

Now that's a decent comment. And that really is all we should really care about, great experience and content. And Sony has not failed at that.
