With PlayStation dad Ken Kutaragi taking home the Lifetime Achievement Award at DICE this year, there's one achievement of his that isn't in the list of honors: His ability to come up with amazingly insane sound bites.
(On PS3's price) "It's probably too cheap." (On PS3's price) "We want consumers to think to themselves 'I will work more hours to buy one.'" This is the reason why the PS3 is failing so badly, because of the arrogant Sony corporate culture. They really thought if they slapped a Playstation sticker on the side of anything at any price it would sell like hotcakes, but we all know now that it isn't and the PS3 is going the way of the Gamecube while the Xbox 360 and Wii continue to extend their lead.
Your quotes are just as good mate, just as good. You're both crazy but I love it, makes me smile reading them. I'm insulted that you haven't been nominated or given an award. It's scandalous
however he was a good man, the real only issue was probably him speaking for sony, maybe he should've just worked in the backround.
He is one of the biggest reasons console gaming is what it is. I understand it was Playstation as a whole that made gaming literally xplode times about 3 or 4 but he was the main man behind the legend.
Most geniuses are eccentric.
