MCV meets SCEE president and CEO Andrew House to discuss the future of PS3 and PSP
MCV: Wii sales are sliding and Xbox 360 is showing a year-on-year dip. How has PS3 managed to buck the trend?
Andrew House: We are still benefiting from the launch of the PS3 Slim at a different price point. This is related to the fact that we are getting more consumer recognition over the value of the experience on PS3. We are now adding to that sense of value with more and different services. So it’s a combination of the £299 price point, video downloads, catch-up TV, the growth in Blu-ray and our newly-announced art house film service – Mubi. People are starting to see the full picture of what this very powerful device can offer them.
