There have been a few times in the past when I've ragged on various sites for continously quoting certain key Microsoft employees for repeated relatively vapid and often completely unfounded statements as if they were some kind of source of news.
Listening to one executive bash another company's product is generally two steps away from listening to two fanboys duke it out in forums. The only difference is that the executives use better grammar and the fanboys are often better informed.
Just to prove I'm not playing bias here, lemme add Sony to the list:
Firstly, Nintendo has titles like Brain Age which has gone on the books for scoring highly with non-gamers. The PSP has nothing remotely similar. Secondly, the Nintendo DS has spanked the PSP in sales like a naughty schoolboy. If anyone is trailing anyone else - Sony is doing the following.
Thirdly - Earth wide audience? WTF. Oh wait no - that actually makes perfect sense.
Sony executives are Martians. It explains why their PR is so bizarre and why they can't communicate very well to consumers. English is their second culture.
Well, welcome to Earth Sony execs. Now, please hire a decent translator and start explaining why the PlayStation 3 is worth it's price tag for the holidays.
