TGS 2007: Konami Pokes Fun At PS3 User Base

At Konami's TGS press event earlier this week an executive for the company couldn't help but join in for some good old-fashioned PlayStation 3 teasing. The comment came from Kazuya Takahashi, Online Contents Production, Exec. Dir., as he was discussing Konami's plans for mobile phones.

While making a point about how every consumer has a mobile phone (and it is therefore the biggest market for gaming), he asked everyone in attendance who had a Wii. Next, he asked who had a Nintendo DS. Finally he asked, "How many of you have a PlayStation 3? Probably none."

Of course, Konami then brought out Hideo Kojima to show off the latest trailer for its PS3-exclusive Metal Gear Solid 4. So it had better hope one or two people have a PS3 by the time it comes out.

BTW PS3 sales would ofcourse increase as soon as SONY drop the price.

still ps3 which costs 3x as much as x360 in JAPAN outsells it 10:1 .

PS3 --Wii margin has gone down recently too. I expect PS3 to overtake wii next year

Stop the stupidity already. The XBOX 360 is superior to the PS3 in graphics - it has (and always will have) an advantage in memory - at least because the OS on the PS3 is a memory hog (assuming you can use the split memory of the PS3 efficiently). So it will always have an advantage in textures. The graphic chip for the XBOX 360 is simply superior.

It also has an advantage in AI - because it is better at out-of-order instructions.

The PS3 has an advantage in physics.

In the end, the difference between the two platforms is going to be minor and it will be based more on the time spent refining the code than anything else. Want higher resolution - you are going to lose tectures.

Anyway - the stupidity is getting old already. Both are great machines, it just turns out that Sony priced its machine a little too high for mass acceptence.

No.. you all are STUPID!

They could tease us like that, but these guys were stupid enough to blame the PS3s.

Every single PS3 out there will slap their face when they know how to program the CELL/BE.

LAZY DUMB DEVELOPERS!

Konami has to laugh at the situation.i mean back when PS3 was first announced i'm sure they thought it was gonna be a runaway train like the PS2 was.Kojima likes to use the most powerful hardware at the time, but at what expense.How many copies do they expect to sell if only 1 million people in japan own a PS3.That's why more japanese developers are turning to wii cause in their country its a runaway train destined to sell copies of said game.That be like valve making a wii game expecting it to only sell in japan.Japanese companies want japanese buisness, but with PS3 and Xbox 360 they are having to look somewhere else(USA) for alot of sales.Before a fanboy starts to attack me i have a ps3 and want buy another system, but facts are facts.Find me in warhark, darkwatcher76 baby yeah!

ps2 runaway train... uhhh... the ps3 is selling better than the ps2 initially did.. hmmmm

Omegasyde3682d ago

Smokey is right. Don't forget the PS3 sold "Half" the of the Total of Xbox 360's in less than "HALF" of the time.

The Console war will last a while this time. The smart gamer buys more than 1 system to enjoy the benefits of each Systems unique games.

Duh.

hotshot12373682d ago (Edited 3682d ago )

400 DOLLAR PS3 EQUALS AROUND 12 MILLION by that time. most people that are buying ps3's right now are getting it for metal gear solid.

@socomnick, please EXPLAIN YOUR REASONING? cuz it wouldnt do good on 360

socomnick3682d ago

Bigger install base in the US. Not sure but didnt mgs 2 and 3 sell more in the US than in Japan.
