"There's things I love about the PS3, but.." - Greenberg's Greatest Hits

GamerZines: Aaron Greenberg has recently been in the news yet again for praising the 360 whilst paying the PS3 a backhanded compliment.

Despite many fans requesting browser support for Microsoft's console, the product director dismissed the idea explaining "The web browsing experience on TV is a poor one," and "Sure, you can go on the PS3 and go to Facebook and try to navigate, but it's an absolute nightmare."

Let's face it this sort of corporate vitriol between Sony and Microsoft isn't new. So we'd thought we'd compile Greenberg's best comments, a greatest hits if you will, to remind us all which console manufacturer pays his wages.

"I can't imagine any scenario where the PS3 can catch up with us. In fact, even if you doubled the current PS3 sales and Xbox 360 remained flat, they couldn't close the gap until 2014." The Bitbag, January '09 "

and yet green burg here we are almost a year later, and the PS3 it just about 4-6 million console away (and its only shrinking)

"We remain confident that Xbox 360 will not only outsell PS3 for the full calendar year, but for this entire generation. Our strategy has always been to completely focus on delivering the best games and entertainment experience in the living room and not get distracted by anything else." Joystiq, October '09

Didn't the PS3 outsell 360 in 09?

yup sold about 2 million more in 09
where was green burg state ment for that?

but at the end of the day microsoft pays my bills

but i like having one good exclusive a year to play

but the media is never going to stop sucking my d!ck so i dont care

but we out sell the the US only.....some of the time

but people prefer exclusive DLC over exclusive games, so thats what we give them

but we have support from all 3rd parties, so who cares we have like 2 first party studios... we get almost, if not all 3rd tittle ps3 does

but i like having the option of playing my tittle on the PC too

but upscale DVD is almost as good as bluray....on a SDTV

but who doesn't like paying $50 a year for basically just cross game chat

but we had netflix first

why does this guy talk so much sh!t!

rawd3309d ago

@El Jugador

Did you forget what company he works for.

Nitrowolf23309d ago

i know its just competition
but have they ever heard of friendly competition?
Only ones who have been taking stabs at the competitor constantly is MS and most of its done by this guy. On some occasion Sony and Nintendo do attack other companies, but you never see it as much as MS does and along with their exclusive games developer parties.

hamoor3309d ago

well he is not worst than the fanboys here
Atleast he got paid for his job while here they do it for free

sikbeta3309d ago (Edited 3309d ago )

GOD, he still talking about the PS3, Damn... annoying.... Please, take care of the Console from the Company you get paid instead of paying so much attention to what others companies are doing...


I can understand why he said that, he works for M$ and they don't like the idea of something replacing what window$ do, like a Browser that is Not IE on a TV that is Not a PC with window$ installed...

HolyOrangeCows3309d ago (Edited 3309d ago )

Poor guy, I'll bet he's a big PS3 fan, but he has to do anything he can to shut it down (And he's not very good at it. LOL, FF13 and Gears 2 show the "power" of the 360 and that it is more powerful than the PS3, lol) b/c he's paid to do it.

''We have proved over the years, that all games can be realized on Xbox 360. Just look at titles like Final Fantasy XIII, Forza Motorsport 3, Gears 2, and Modern Warfare 2 on Xbox 360? These games and our leading online experiences demonstrate that Xbox 360 is the most powerful games and entertainment console''
-Aaron Greenberg

2 sub-HD games (FF13 and MW2), 2 games with more powerful PS3 counterparts (FF13 and Forza), and a game with unstable, laggy online play (Gears) represents the POWER of the 360......THAT shows that the 360 is "The most powerful games console"???

ChozenWoan3309d ago

I'm doing that now thanks to my pc with HDMI output. lol /s

But lets be honest, ordering a pizza from your PS3 is a pretty cool feature.

Syronicus3309d ago

Well, in defense of Aaron here, the 360 did outsell the PS3 in both years 2005 and 2006...

As for the entire generation, the PS3 will destroy the 360 come 2016 when this gen in declared over. Ten year cycles people, ten year cycle. By that time the PS3 will be around 125 million sold and the 360 will have barely hit 85 million. Bookmark and quote me in 6 years.

One of the slickest executive or one of the dikkiest. I think his comments just insult peoples intelligence, at least the intelligent peoples intelligence.

Raoh3309d ago

globally its a different story..

japan released its 2009 fiscal year sales numbers..

ps3 sold just under 2million units and the 360 sold roughly 250 thousand units

Playstation 3 – 1,925,429 (4,934,824 all time)
Xbox 360 – 251,911 (1,253,102 all time)

coldfoot3309d ago

Ms doesn't even have exclusive dlc. It's timed exclusive dlc which is pretty much meaningless because it's much easier to wait for extra content in a game you already own an play compared to waiting for a whole new timed exclusive game.

ThanatosDMC3309d ago

You know he has a PS3 on his bed... yeah, he's dirty like that. He "loves" what he hates.

All girls want what their superiors tell them they can't have.

Why do PS3 fangirls hate this guy?!?!

Really now?

Is it because he says the truth about the faulty ps3, and the ps3 fangirls get buthurt?!?

Let me tell ya something, ps3 fangirls, the truth hurts!

And being in last place, is more than true!!!


sikbeta3309d ago

Wait...What? He said something about Faulty PS3s, but don't tell me he said something about Faulty Hardware, I mean, WHAT A SHAME, knowing the Huge Percentage of Faulty x360s, he's not in the Best position to talk about that...

Uwe_Boll3309d ago (Edited 3309d ago )

I think its unproffesional when the heads of the gaming departments trash the other company. I would prefer it if they trashed companies like activision instead, you know the ones who deserve it.

@HxCGamer he actually does like he has downs hahaha bubble+1

HxCGamer3309d ago

it makes it unprofessional, if their statements are lies...

maybe he really doesnt know he is lying and he is actually retarded... its a possiblity

edit: he kinda looks like he has down's in the picture .. just sayin

Montrealien3309d ago (Edited 3309d ago )

they all do it every now and then, it keeps us yappping about them.

Your comment reminded me of a recent penny arcade comic strip.
