Once bitter rivals, Sega is now happy to send Nintendo a few compliments.
Sonic and the Secret Rings director Yogiro Ogawa called the Wii Remote a "fun device to design games for" while chastising PlayStation 3 as too expensive for the audience in an interview with Computer and Video Games. "Now I think that if Sony had sold the PS3 alongside the Vaio brand, maybe like calling it the 'Vaio PS3' or something like that, it may have been more appealing to the right people," said Ogawa, referring to the "value" of a PS3. "I think that the way in which Sony has chosen to approach the PS3 could have been better. It's very expensive."
