Microsoft has responded to Sony’s claim that PS3 “won” the horse race in Australia in 2011, and has sent out a rather arrogant-toned response to the press.
“It’s clear to see that the momentum in this industry is with Microsoft and the Xbox platform. We won at the telling Christmas period, we are standalone in our growth this year and looking at the past five years our consistency is unprecedented,” said MS consumer channels group director David McLean.
He continued, arguing that Microsoft platforms were the only ones to see year-on-year growth in Australia, boasting a 5 percent increase in revenue across software, hardware and peripherals, while Sony’s growth came only from the PlayStation 3 and its software and accessories.
Mc Lean didn’t stop there, he said 2011 marked the fifth consecutive year that Xbox 360 has seen an increase in revenue and, apparently, was the only console to do so.
