A Poor Artist Blames The Hardware

"I don't think Sony can afford to sit back. I think they still have things they can do with the price and performance of the machine-- things that they need to address."

Gardner points to the success of the DS as being about fun and accessibility, not about pure technical supremacy.

"There's no doubt that EA has historically bet more on PSP. I think we were excited by the technology, but the consumers have proven that actually what they want is fun. ... EA is putting more effort behind DS games -- and creative ones that really take advantage of the hardware."
-- EA says the PSP is no fun

Let me get this right. The DS is more fun not because of the hardware ... but because it has fun and accessible games. EA can't make fun and accessible games for the PSP ... because of the hardware.

So EA isn't making fun games ... and that's Sony's fault? Hear that beeping noise? That's the nonsense detector going off. There are times when EA gets away with public statements only because they're EA.
