He's saying Sony should have done what Microsoft did and listen to devs.An example is the 512MB asked for by Epic.Unfortunately Sony have there owns way of doing things.Eventually, it will not prove a problem, but it's a hurdle to overcome.

It always takes time to get the most out of new hardware. Same happened last gen, same will happen this gen. If you look back to what was said about PS2 at first.

'most devs said it was hard to program for'

How long will it take you to realize that the PS3 has nothing to do with the PS2 other than brand name?
