Sony Assails Microsoft

This is not a cat fight but it is a close second. This time around, Sony marketing VP Peter Dille has suddenly decided to let the world know how he feels about Microsoft's Xbox 360. Like any gentleman who witnesses any catfight, we'll just stand aside and watch with you.

"I don't want to be argumentative, but I take issue with Microsoft either having a long tail, or being profitable, because they've never done either. They've never made a dime in this business."

"With the Xbox 360 you've got an inconsistent design, some have a hard drive, some don't, and none of them have Blu-ray, and the HD DVD will be out of business in a matter of months. Is this a 10 year product?"

"And by the way it doesn't even work. Do they want to be selling it for 10 years and refurbishing them all for 10 more years? I don't think that's a 10 year product. You could disagree with me, or they could disagree with me, but I'd put that up against the PS3 any day"

I agree with him on that MS did not maybe take the time to make the 360 as reliable as it could have been. We all know the problem is in the 360´s cooling system. But as already been said, MS never tried to make it last 10y´rs either. Ive heard rumours about MS releasing a new "next"gen machine already in 2-3 years.. Hopefully that time MS will take time to make it function as it should!? ;)

Sorry for double post´s, one more thing I do agree with him. MS should scrap the core edition, and just make all 360´s include the Hardrive. So we can have a harddrive buffer in our 360 games. Would make the games function better!!

HAHA this is gold! Everyone on sony f**ked? Lets be honest in 2 years blue ray player will be 100$ and ps3 still 400$-500$. Its so advertised superior graphics = bulls**t lie even after a year of delay. 10 year product? things already look better on GF8800

LOL in 10 years Xbox 360 and ps3 wil both be so far out of date it won't matter. The fact that Sony thinks it's ps3 will be top of the line "next gen" in 10 years just shows how big their ego has gotten. I mean the ps3 sales are really low and they still say they have the best system. The sales don't lie, the consumers have spoken and that speaks louder than anything

add me if u own an xbox, anyway, its true that xbox is pretty fragile in their hardware quality, and especially the dvd-rom, however the games and graphics are great, and i'd prefer a core system, coz my premium system got broken down, talking about over heating and the dvd rom, yeah reason why the dvd rom doesnt read? coz i tipped the console over while it was running a game and scrambled the disc, and the system froze up when it slammed to the left, i tipped it vertically, and it last for a month after i bought it, amazingly? lol, well anyway, to those ppl with bad luck on their xbox, these are the reason why ur xbox broken down, dont frame microsoft because of your lousiness. i tipped my console over, scrambled my cd and screwed the hardware. thank you for reading

For the dumbass that said the ps1 and ps2 are still top of the line "next gen" console, you need to get out of your Mommie's basement and learn to read. I said, "The fact that Sony thinks it's ps3 will be top of the line "next gen" in 10 years just shows how big their ego has gotten". In 10 years they will be "last gen". You are obviously a ps3 fanboy. BTW the ps2 was released for North America October 26, 2000. Basically, 2001, so 2001-2007= 6 years. A far cry from a decade. BOOM!!! Another ps3 fanboy down!

Actually it was launched on March 4, 2000 in asia and contrary to your opinion north america isnt the centre of the fvcking world so the launch date WAS march 2000!So can we count march 2000 as 1999 seeing as its soo close ?pls?failing that, just go fvck yourself!

the only video game platform (excluding pc) to hit a 10 year life span was game boy.its not really a surprise MS dosnt think the 360 will last 10 years. the difference between the first xbox and the 360 was only 4 years.and imo both the ps1 and ps2 had a 6 year lifespan. sony thinking that ps3 will have 10 years is kinda ridiculous. oh man, imagine not replacing your pc for 10 years?

Microsoft has the (ridiculously deep) coffers to lose lots of money now so that they can rake it in later, and that's exactly what they've been doing in the console biz.And if the results emerging from this new generation of the console war are any indication, it's bloody well working.

The part that makes me laugh most is the "hd dvd will be out of business in a matter of months" a recent market study for Europe put hd dvd at 74% market share. That seems a lot higher than "blu-ray" lol

I think that this attack on MS XBOX 360 was planned in order to persuade the consumers to buy PS3, since as Sony sais it has a 10years life...xaxa an other proof tha Sony made everything wrong with PS3. They run out of marketing strategies and now they attack!!! MS XBOX was better than PS2. But what do the sails say.........

$ony blows and people dont want to admit it.$ony says that the 360 design is inconsistent simply because it has a removable HD.Thats the same as saying the PSP or DS design is incosistent because it has removable discs or cartridges.$ony sucks and if that makes me an asshole then so be it!

"my Geforce 8800 GTX owns both,who need ps3 or xbox these days maybe the new generation kids which they su.x in 3rd person games" lol u obviously don't know what those consoles can do. your geforce 8800 gtx will fry if you play games like Killzone2 (PS3) and Gears of War (Xbox360) with everything on high. ofcourse in the future PC will get better but like it or not currently next-gen consoles (not including Wii) have better graphics than PCs even with the best graphic cards in the market.

David, and retard at 0:51 16/7/2007PS2 has been selling for 7.5 years now. Games ARE still being made, consoles are still being sold.Who knows how long for, but a far cry from 10 years? I think not.

Sony Assails Microsoft

xbox 360 is crapbut oh well, in 3 years the xbox 720 will already be available, lets hope it will be betterf**k microschrott, sucky who can't do a gaming console that lasts even 5 years whereas Sony's PS1 is even still ruling

Sony Assails Microsoft

Arrogant words just as kuratagi, and now he's selling hot dogs out there :P... Let the facts talk by themselves bluray is not guaranteed to success and also a design flaw is not to include emulation support (PS1, PS2) in different versions of the PS3 this guy is talking nonsense

Sony Assails Microsoft

360 now = betterbetter gameslooks betterps3 later = much bettersame gamesbetter productI own both, my 360 cooked off, if they fix it and return it sometime before next year ill buy 360 games... that is untell the 2nd gen of ps3 games start hitting the market. Forza looks<GTHD but forza drives better.. so FORNOW i like my 360, but later I see the ps3 as dominating the market
