Destructoid said "I'm not one to go all teary-eyed over any negative news involving Sony, but this next bit of info coming out of Dean Takahashi's blog was more than enough to at least tug at my sympathy strings a tad. While commenting on recent NPD numbers, he had this to say concerning Sony and the PlayStation 3:"
"One piece of news that came out this week was that Sony pleaded with third-party developers not to abandon its struggling platform. That change in attitude is a marked difference compared to the arrogance of past years. The argument is that the PS3 will show its strength as developers learn how to make games for it. But developers know they can staff four or five Wii teams with the same number of people it takes to make one PS3 game. We may have a glut of Wii games soon, but that's not as bad as not having enough games on the PS3."
Destructoids advice to Sony is simple -- whatever it takes. Adding backwards compatibility to the 40GB PS3 would be a healthy start in which to build upon. After all, gamers all need something to do while Sony sorts this all out. Question is... is it too late?
