Forget the massive pedophilia problem for a second. The man could GAME.
Balls, arrogance or delusion—or a mixture of all three? I’m having trouble figuring it out as I read this Class V tornado of a spin job by Sony’s Jack Tretton:
“With a year of record sales ushering us into the new year, we continue to raise the bar on providing consumers the deepest and broadest entertainment content for every member of the family to enjoy. With new content being added every day to the PlayStation Network combined with an unmatched line up of exclusive titles on PSP, and the roll out of truly groundbreaking games such as Killzone 2 for PS3, we remain confident in our approach and strategy for another record year of growth and momentum.”
Bullshit throwaway quote talking about non-traditional “family gamers”? Check. Name dropping of make-or-break FPS exclusive? Ditto. PSN name drop to make sure everyone knows it still exists as they wail away on friends over at Xbox Live instead? Sure, why not.
Nintendo has become so big and powerful thanks to the DS and Wii that it thinks taking on entire countries to fight the piracy movement is no big deal. Seriously, there’s a frakkin’ LIST OF NAMES.
EA and Pandemic released DLC today for a game no one is playing.
Exclusive? Timed exclusive? Who gives a shit? Lost Planet 2 could be either, but we know it’s coming out on the Xbox 360, and that’s all that really matters when the systems are so similar. Sony is once again relegated to the sloppy seconds corner. Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
Analyst expects PS3 price cut in mere days.
…it’s the fact that Mirror’s Edge was a shitty game that made it sell less than expected.
New Japanese DSi colors lead me to believe Nintendo is secretly in cahoots with Japan’s eye doctors.
No worthless UMD drive on the oft-rumored PSP2? Better late than never.
Bwah? An video game exec praising the maligned used game market? Hmm. Suspicious. Oh, it’s Microsoft! Something tells me Chris Lewis is bucking the trend because MS, smartly, is looking long term, and sees nothing but death in the future for brick and mortar distribution model. DLC, FTW!
