Kutaragi 'Doesn't Care' About Rivals

Sony Computer Entertainment president Ken Kutaragi has downplayed the threat of rivals Nintendo and Microsoft in the midst of the PlayStation 3's scaled-back launch.

Speaking to Next-Gen's European media partner MCV at Sony's Tokyo headquarters, Kutaragi commented on the possibility of Xbox 360 and Wii overcoming the PS3: "We don't care," he said.

His remark isn't a sign of forfeit to Sony's videogame competitors, rather a sign of his confidence that PS3 production will eventually get up to speed and go head-to-head with the Wii and Xbox 360. While it's surely keeping a keen eye on competitors, Sony's main focus at this point is on its own in-house issues.

X360 needs help in Japan.It's been on sale a year and has'nt even sold 100k.And that's with no competition.

Why do you think the world is Japan and the next gen war revolves around there. Japan is a fraction compared to the europe and the reset of the world

Of course they don't care about market share or the competition. They don't care because they know all that matters is selling 50 million Blu-ray players so they succeed. That's the only way they'll make money.

The PS3 is a blu-ray machine first, gaming second
