Sometimes I like to think that PS2 has repeated itself with PS3, just looking at the system’s rough and almost suicidal entrance into this, the eighth generation of consoles, brings back vivid memories of its older sibling.
But can the PS3 reign supreme, overtaking the Xbox 360′s install base before this generation is out? I think not, But Europe boss Jens Uwe Intat disagrees with me completely — for him, “we could certainly see Sony come back”.
“We could certainly see Sony come back – in the U.K. it’s still a head-to-head competition between PlayStation and Xbox, but on the continent Sony is traditionally stronger than Microsoft,” he told MCV. “But we’re very happy to watch the competition, because as long as they’re competing to get more consumers in, there are more people we can sell games to. It’s interesting to see that both companies embarking on a slightly different path when it comes to controlling games. Kinect and Move are both very interesting ideas.”
What do you guys think? Should Sony set its focus on passing the Xbox 360 in terms of consoles sold? After all, the giant has always stressed a 10yr life cycle. Either ways, it don’t matter, the PS3′s enjoying unstoppable momentum now, especially with the exclusive lineup that’s second to none.
