Sony and Microsoft have mostly been sidestepping Nintendo’s new console Wii U, categorizing the new machine as nothing more than a platform stock between two generations: the present and the one to come. It’s lukewarm, then, neither hot nor cold. But a Sony top executive has now admitted that Wii U is indeed a potential threat to PS3, nonetheless the firm feels pretty good about the content it has incoming.
That’s according to Sony Europe head Jim Ryan who spoke to GamesIndustry recently:
“It’s obviously a potential risk but we feel really good about our content. Obviously, it comes down to content. There are people who buy gadgets for the sake of the gadget, but that’s pretty niche. We feel good about our line-up that we showed at E3. We’re very excited about publishing it. We’ve got 30 million PS3s (sales target) for this year, it’s a big number but we’ve got the tools to go out and deliver that.”
What do you guys think, should Sony be afraid for PS3 once Wii U is released?
