Sony Promises New Plans For Playstation 3 This Year

"We've talked about this next year being the most aggressive marketing year in PlayStation's history," Peter Dille, Sony Computer Entertainment America's senior vice president in charge of Marketing and PLAYSTATION Network said in a recent interview. "It clearly falls into the 'we can't comment on rumor and speculation,' but we're confident in our plan, and we'll just leave it at that."

Over the last few months, a lot of third party developers and market analysts have asked publicly for Playstation 3 price cut, but Dille believes that this is not what the wish of the majority.

"We have a big event every year called Destination PlayStation. All the third-parties attend; all the retailers attend," he said. "We don't have the press there for a reason -- because we want to be very candid in our plans and not have sort of the implication of having the PR aspects to those conversations."

"When we lay out the plans to those folks there -- I think it might be fair to say that some people came into Destination PlayStation curious about what our plans were."

"I think they all left really fired up about the year ahead because, once they understood what our plans were, we didn't hear any of that grousing that you're talking about -- certainly not from the folks that attended."

"And I was quoted as saying recently that third-parties want our hardware to be free. We understand that; we have a business to run, and they have a business to run. As I said earlier, we were marching to a mantra to be profitable, which meant we weren't going to be cutting the price of the PS3 last year, and going forward we'll have a different plight."

Sony Promises New Plans For Playstation 3 This Year

stupidest beurocratic bullsh1t i've ever heard, i mean seriously, bad 3rd party devs want hardware free because they want a scapegoat for their poor sales, that is a scapegoat in itself, a sidestory at best. the real deal is that sony is losing money and they haven't advertised their (new) systems in a long time. It sucks when a big monopoly, sorry tri-opoly (nintendo, sony, xbox(ms)) tries to squeeze out the developers by increasing fines on the bandwidth of PSN demos, yes developers pay the bandwidth cost of demos now, just a sad state of affairs when the japs try to squeeze out american developers.

Systems are about games, sony falls short by a long shot.More Power? Bla.. Then lets see it!Most games i have played are often better on the 360 or the same on both systems.You don't need it "all" at that price range to play the best games. All you need is the best system out of the 2, XboX 360 and XBoX Live.With that, you have the best game content and service on the market.With the money you save you can go out and buy some top games. Then hit XboX Live and enjoy!My ps3 has been collecting dust since the day i bought it.

yes the ps3 is more powerful but my pc is faster than a ps3 so why the debate surely everyone should play games on pc. oh and the server i run is faster than my home pc so why doesn't everyone run a server(the size of a room).cost is important and the ps3 is too expensive, everyone i know thinks the same and allot of them have bought a 360 for that reason.the amount of available games is also a huge factor considering that the N64 was faster than the playstaion but the playstation had allot more games so it was the better console.fanboys (both sides) wrong always wrong.
