Sony Australia says nice things about Wii

In an article discussing the repercussions of the Playstation 3's March release date in PAL territories, the Sydney Morning Herald obtains a few interesting quotes from Sony's general manager for Australia and Middle-Earth. Though portraying the PS3 in a positive light is to be expected, the kind words aimed at a competitor's product are somewhat surprising -- especially when they make it sound better than Sony's own product to the uninformed reader.

"The Wii-type functionality is more just a sub-element of what the PlayStation 3 offers," says Nic Foster, clearly referring to motion sensitivity. "Wii is a core gaming device. It's a more fun, intuitive sort of product to pick up, where the PS3 is a broader entertainment solution; so you can have your fun, enjoyable gaming ... but then you have a whole suite of other applications ... such as Blu-ray media playback, the ability to access your music, access your photos and the interoperability with the PlayStation Portable."

The story is too old to be commented.

Who runs this site? Are they paid by Nintendo wii? How is that saying anything good about the Wii? basically he said (in terms of food) The wii is just an appetizer, while the PS3 is a full course meal the appetizer, the soup, salad, steak, lobster and a desert! How can this be anything good for the wii?

Wow atleast try to hide your blinded love for the wii a little bit please! Its so blatant and obvious!
