While Sony may be in third place in the console horse race, behind Nintendo and Microsoft, don't count it out yet. As Dille is quick to point out, the PlayStation 3 is holding its own when it comes to core features and exclusive titles. While Microsoft grabbed headlines after grabbing previously exclusive PS3 titles like Assassin's Creed and Virtua Fighter 5, you're still only going to be playing games like Heavenly Sword, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and Ratchet & Clank Future on Sony's machine. GameInformer talked with Dille about exclusivity, the embattled Blu-ray format and the company's plans for 2008.
Game Informer: You face some serious competition this holiday season from Microsoft and Nintendo-why should consumers go with PlayStation 3?
Peter Dille: Well, quite frankly, it is always competitive in this business, and there is no better time to be a gamer than right now as there are many great console and content choices to choose from. And if you want the most technologically advanced gaming system that will stand the test of time for the next 10 years and comes with a free online gaming service, then the PS3 is a perfect choice.
