Kaz Hirai: Developers Were Confused About PS3


Posted May 12, 2008 - By bleahy

Why was the PS3 slow to get games? According to PlayStation boss Kaz Hirai, it's because:

"There was some confusion as to what PS3 was initially – some of the third parties didn't understand and they wanted to scale back a little and see how things went before they really put in their resources, but when I re-positioned the PS3 as a videogames console at Tokyo Game Show I think everybody got that message loud and clear."

Seems like Kaz is claiming that the PS3's success as a Blu-Ray and multimedia players actually hurt its initial game development.

We aren't so sure we agree with him. If you say "PlayStation" to us, we think videogames, not movies and photos.

What do you think?

P.S.: It's Riiiiiiiiidge Racer!!!
