Seattle Post-Intelligencer checked in with Sony to see if the company had any comment on how Halo 3 would shape the competitive landscape this holiday season. Here's the full statement that Sony sent in response:
"We've never been dependent on any one game -- PlayStation has always offered a very diverse portfolio of gaming experiences and this year is no different. We're offering more than 10 exclusive PS3 titles in North America this holiday season across multiple genres and demographics. And in early to mid 2008 we'll continue to add innovative and diverse games like Gran Turismo 5, Killzone, LittleBigPlanet and Metal Gear Solid 4."
Shane Kim, Microsoft Game Studios corporate vice president, sees things differently, of course: "Sony has no answer to Halo 3," he said in an interview. Kim also cited other upcoming Xbox 360 games, including Mass Effect, which he expects to be high in the sales rankings.
