    "Sony is still the one to beat"

    Epic Games VP Mark Rein has taken on Sony's critics, saying that he believes the strength of the PlayStation brand and the company's ongoing strategy will ensure PS3 is a success.
    Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz in an interview at GDC last week, Rein said, "Sony has a very, very strong brand, so in my opinion, they're still the one to beat.
    "The Wii is an impressive piece of hardware, but as you get the visually more impressive games coming out for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, as the marketing dollars get turned up to support the larger quantities of machines, with potential price drops and titles like Singstar which appeal to the larger market... Those machines will ignite, they'll take off, and they'll sell just fine."
    Rein's comments came after Phil Harrison's GDC keynote speech, during which the Sony Worldwide Studios boss unveiled PlayStation Home and exclusive title LittleBigPlanet. "It looks like they've got some pretty cool stuff coming," Rein said.
    "As the big titles come out, they're going to sell a bunch of machines. When PlayStation Home comes out, they'll sell a bunch of machines... Yeah, it's a high price, because it's a new, high-end piece of equipment, but history shows that price will come down. They'll sell lots of them, it'll be fine."
    Rein questioned some of the criticisms which have been levelled at Sony in recent months, particularly with regard to the amount of PS3 stock currently available in US stores.
    "So wait, if they don't have enough machines in stores, that's a bad thing? If they do have enough machines, that's a bad thing? Pick one!
    "People just seem to want to take a smack at [Sony], and I can't figure it out. They're the leader, so I guess they have a target on their back."
    He also had strong words for those who have accused Sony of following in others' footsteps. "I read on a developer forum, one of the guys who worked on PlayStation Home said they started designing it in 2004. So when people say things like, 'Oh, they announced this new piece of software! They just copied so-and-so!'. What, you think they just made it last week in their basement?"
    According to Rein, there can be a tendency amongst industry professionals to take an insular perspective, and fail to recognise the attitudes of the typical consumer. "The gamers out there, they aspire to buy a new PlayStation," he concluded

    I agree with everything. Sony has some great stuff coming to the system. Home is going to dominate the crappy mii's. Ps3 folding at home is coming next week, (which is for a good cause) and a bunch of great games this year. People keep doubting sony, but they will be crying after sony surpasses the wii and the 360 in sales. The wii will stay ahead for a couple of years, but after that its going to be outdated. Nintendo will have to come up with a new system just to keep up. I think nintendo made a bad move with the wii. Good concept but it lacks alot.

    well i think nintendo is already making a new console every company does after they produce one but it might be held back because the wii is in high demand, nintendo is made so that it is cheap because it is supposed to be good for the costumers and easy to buy ,sure they could update it with blu ray and stuff but that raise the cost quite high, the major turn off is the price for the ps3 ,heck my mum used to bother me because i was using my pocket money that i was saving for the wii but then she saw the ps3 and left me alone about it and to enjoy the graphics you need a hdtv and my parents cant afford one right now like other people so thats my point

    Why would you need an hdtv? It comes with av cables for a reason. Theres a difference between graphics and resolution.

    seriously man, stop with the advertising. Everywhere you go your posting that damn link, even sending private messages to people. You already sent me 2 of the same damn thing.

    Really, stot the advertising. If people wanted to have a console war, theres much better forums they could go to.
