Sony Stresses Importance of Games, Games, Games

Kotaku writes: "When Kaz Hirai took over Sony Computer Entertainment, the company's outlook changed. The previous head, PlayStation father Ken Kutaragi, kept talking up the PS3's other selling points. It was a Blu-ray player! It was a super computer! It had 4D!! Somewhere along the line, the focus that Sony Computer Entertainment made game machines was lost. Hirai has done a sold job of roping that back in. In an interview with Nikkei, Hirai said:

The thing that I did when I took over last year was to boast the appeal of games themselves... The main premise of the PS3 is video games. That's the absolutely most important thing that we cannot lose sight of."

The story is too old to be commented.

Well they are starting to deliver the AAA titles now. R2, LPG and Socom to name a few. Not to mention some great multi-plats on the way. Gaming season is looking great.

They've had the AAA games for awhile now, but it hasn't seemed to help. GTA4 "not AAA to me but to you all it waS" didn't help. MGS4 didn't help. C'mon, Sony's problem isn't software; it's price and until they drop it they'll let nintendo and Microsoft both frolic in the sun together.

Sadbut true. PS3 has the games to back up a buy; if the asking price was reasonable.

MGS4 didn't help? FYI the console sold 400k in the month of MGS4 and that was when MGS4 80gb bundle went out of stock almost everywhere, in other words, they could've easily sold more.

PS3 is selling just fine

It has outsold its main compentition in its first 2 years!

$400 is a great deal for the hardware

the big issue is

do you have the money to spend to buy all the great games on the system!
