160° : Sony misleads multiple times on MotorStorm resolution, revises PS3 sales goals to allow for success.

From the article: "It's starting to get frustrating to cover Sony. From being misleading in their Emmy press-releases and then pulling the evidence, to switching their stated manufacturing goals, I just can't keep the stories straight. The Emmy thing was okay-we all make mistakes, and perhaps Sony just jumped to a few conclusions. But the issue of Motorstorm's resolution is much thicker and smacks of negligence.

It's not like the gaming press made up the 1080p, 60fps Motorstorm story by ourselves. Sony employees were telling the press that would be the resolution and the framerate...

Please tell me you are just kidding? I just cannot fathom you being such a tool in real life. They made some valid points. Come on man.

I'm just going to re-post part of the article here as opposed to some disparaging comment about Sony. This is magical.

In the CES keynote, which you can watch here, Peter Dille states that we'll see Motorstorm at 1080p running at 60fps. [...] After all that buzz, they're now saying Motorstorm will be at 720p and run at 30fps. At least according to SCEA. Then again, at this stage who do you believe? I don't even think Sony knows anymore.

Mr. Dille also says they hit their goal of shipping 1 million systems in that speech. Since when was that their goal? We reported on what their actual goal was: they wanted 4 million by the end of the year, and 2 million at launch. That was then brought down to 2 million shipped when they talked to the press. When was it ever 1 million? Engadget has an even more damning interview with Peter Dille. Let me repeat that he is the Senior Vice-President of Marketing. He should know better than to give a keynote that directly contradicts his own interviews:

Engadget: So, you think you're still on track for 2 million units in 2006?

Peter Dille: Yeah.

Engadget: I'm gonna hold you to that.

Peter Dille: Okay, you can hold us all to it!

if they announced that there was going to be a giant purple dinosaur car, and then later they say that the car isn't there anymore, who the he11 cares! i get it its resoulution but come on folks, does it really matter? who cares if it doesn't run 1080p, thats the game devs choice, they created something for your enjoyment and all you can do is complain that they aren't outputting at the resolution that you like? seriously.. thats like reading a book and complaining the letters are the wrong font..

Sony corrected their announcements shortly after

This is quite different than announcing a exclusive game that's not exclusive and have the developer to correct that.
