Georges Fornay, VP of Playstation Europe explains why PS3 is priced as it is and answers other questions

"When you start with a machine costing 600 euros, are these people ready to pay 600 or even 400 euros today?

What we are trying to say, and what people don't always understand, and it's partly our fault... this machine was created to last.

Tomorrow you'll have to buy a Wii HD, tomorrow you'll have to buy a new Xbox because these machines are not future proof."

patterson5271d ago (Edited 5271d ago )

I like this guy at sony he didn't beat around the bush on the questions, he gave an honest answer he admitted that sony need to do better with the ps3 sony has become more humble now. I cant wait until e3. Ps3 is the future.

I disagree that max is unlikable. Chloe is infinitely more unlikable in my opinion.

gold_drake1d 17h ago

omg chloe was awful. i really hated her at the end haha

Cacabunga1d 12h ago

Abby was absolute trash protagonist in every way..
Tidus was so meh to me..
On villain side, the one i didn’t like wa Micah, because they wanted him to be that way and it was brilliant👍🏽

Rancegamerx1d 14h ago

I agree, I liked Max, Chloe was a horrible friend and a bad influence.

Cacabunga1d 7h ago

Everyone agrees on chloe, I’m sure even ND do.

H91d 10h ago

Both are horrible, granted Chloe is infinitely worse, it feels like Chloe is just fanservice for people who too over the edge and wasn't written to be a character that makes sense

MrChow6661d 12h ago

exactly I was expecting it to be a the top of the list

ravens521d 11h ago

Ye I was expecting her too. Guess they actually played the game. Unlike you and whoever agrees.

gpimlott16h ago

I played through the whole game and think she is one of the worst character Ive ever played as

ravens5214h ago(Edited 14h ago)

gpimlott. How?

Christopher1d 10h ago (Edited 1d 10h ago )

She's actually not bad. It's the writing itself that is bad overall, but she's fine overall. She's no worse than Miles Morales IMHO. Both thrust into a spotlight and receiving both praise and blame and dealing with it.

Forspoken is a bland game because it's 75% bland, boring, repetitive going through the motions and diversions that add nothing of the value with purposefully gated memory moments that don't feel organic or like you're discovering things but waiting for others to reveal things.

ravens521d 8h ago

Exactly Chris. Even though I liked the game. I kno u played it. People who actually played it and went thru her dream saw she was a good likeable person who really just acted out due to being alone and unloved. I think your problem is it was open world, I think if it was more linear you may have liked it better.

savedsynner1d 6h ago

Oh no she's bad. Very unlikable even before you add on the bad dialogue. The game could have been quite good with a good protagonist

ravens5219h ago

For all the people like synner. Shes actually half white lol. Inferior complexity is a hell of a thing. You'll be ok.

Nerdmaster1d 21h ago

Most of these aren't even that bad. Especially comparing to others like Squall "Whatever" Leonhart, Forspoken's Frey, and the guy from Atomic Heart.

-Foxtrot1d 14h ago

Squall is one of the best developed main FF characters so...

People talk about his "whatever" thing thats at the start of the game, not the character he eventually becomes in the end.

Nerdmaster1d 2h ago

No amount of "character development", (especially the ones that for me feels sudden and undeserved like Squall's), will justify him being a d**k to my girl Quistis. Even if he found the cure for cancer, from that moment on, I would never like him.
The article is about being unlikeable, and he was indeed unlikeable for at least half of the game.

BrainSyphoned1d 13h ago

Squall is the best protagonists in FF so you can go whatever yourself.

H91d 10h ago

My good sir, I need to steal that "you can go whatever yourself" because it's gold

BlaqMagiq11d 13h ago

Except Squall has actual character development.

gold_drake1d 11h ago (Edited 1d 11h ago )

the "watever" is only present in the english localisation.
so your argument doesnt rly ... stand imo.
