Sony Prez: 'Nintendo Should Learn From Us"


Posted February 26, 2007 - By Stephen Johnson

Sony President Phil Harrison recently chopped it up with Game Daily, and the plucky executive in charge of the PlayStation 3 says he has no regrets about the launch or performance of the next-gen game system. He also said Nintendo has something to learn from Sony about how to make videogame systems.

"I think Nintendo, although I am very respectful of the innovation in Wii, and I think everybody should be respectful of it, I'm not sure that it has the technology base to propel that platform in the long-term. So I think their platform lifecycle is inherently going to be shorter, so they could have learned from us in terms of the high technology approach," Harrison said.

"I don't really care about the negativity in the press; if it was true, if they were talking about real big issues that were genuine criticisms, then of course we'll address them, but there's nothing that bothers me," Harrison said.

Harrison goes on to imply that the fact you can walk into a store and buy a PS3 right now but you won't find a Wii is due to Sony's superior supply chain, and not a lack of demand.

" I know we are achieving our goals of keeping the market supplied and working closely with retailers to make sure they get informed about when supplies are coming in so that they can match their internal and external communications to store managers and consumers about when to buy a PS3. If that means that for Wednesday through Friday there were a few machines on a shelf in a store in Milwaukee, great," Harrison said.

As far as the rumble that's so important to some gamersm, Harrison said: "Rumble I think was the last generation feature; it's not the next-generation feature. I think motion sensitivity is."
