PS3 is most powerful - Hirai

Ignoring the howls of anguish emanating from his public relations department, Sony president Kaz Hirai has been saying things again - and guess what? He reckons PS3 is the most powerful games console, that Blu-ray is ace, and that Sony is amazing.

"I have heard many people say our competitors' systems are just as powerful as the PS3. That simply is not true," he told a CES trade rag, in comments picked up on by IGN. "No other next generation entertainment system pushes the envelope on advanced technology like PS3."

He goes on to declare that you "just can't expect that 9GBs of storage capacity found on today's DVDs are going to have enough space to hold tomorrow's games," adding that Resistance: Fall of Man's 16GBs "simply wouldn't be possible on any other system without using multiple discs". To be fair, he was talking to "Blu-ray Today".

He know's absolutly nothing, does he even know that Sony themselves that the total power of the PS3 was theoritcal and not actual? Also what about the totally obsolete graphics gpu in the PS3? Compare that against the yet to be released R600 equivalent in the 360 that has been in the 360 for over a year now!

This guy is a complete tosser!

Prove it. That is all I have to say. Put up or shut up.

More of the same from Sony.

Word to Kaz...look at the DS (not as powerful as the PSP), look at the Wii (not as powerful as either the 360 or PS3)...

it does matter! look in the future! the wii will not sale all the time at this rate, ppl will understand that it is only a gamecube with time. the sales of the ps3 can only go up, because ppl buy hd-tvs and because the ps3 is future proof, xbox360 is not.

PS3 is future-proof? What if BluRay fails as a format? Microsoft would release a BluRay add-on for 360. PS3? Not so much. Xbox 360 is the future-proof console.

And two quick examples:
-Oblivion easily fits on one disc. Massive worlds, hundreds of potential hours of play, virtually all of the dialogue is recorded audio. All on one DVD.
-Gears fits on one disc. The best-looking game ever made for console, a game that tops anything PS3 is even hoping to ship in the near future, fits on one DVD just fine.

Where's these supposed space issues?
Also keep in mind- Most PS3 games are still staying under 9GB as well, even though the devs have all that extra space to sue freely. They're not even using it when it's there. The one game that does use a total of 15GB- Resistance- has lots of crappy low-res textures, making everyone wonder exactly what about the game could possibly be taking up that much space, except sheer inflation.
