Electronic Arts Executive Wonders What The Hell Is Going On With Sony


Posted March 3, 2009 - By r_pad

Several readers of TheFeed are a bit puzzled with what's going on with Sony. Whether you're a longtime PlayStation fanatic or enjoy rooting against the company (in a mature and thoughtful way), Sony's performance since the release of the PlayStation 3 has been disappointing. It's getting to the point where even Sony's partners are wondering what's up. In a recent interview with Gamesindustry.biz, Glen Schofield, general manager or EA Redwood Shores, said:

"I'm really not sure what's going on with Sony. They've been such a great, great partner and PlayStation 2 being such a great machine that, God, I hope they get out of this and they figure it out and they're around for a long time."

Maybe it's just me, but if Sony has been such a great partner to EA then perhaps the company shouldn't be calling it out in public. Like Mark Twain said, "The proper office of a friend is to side with you when you are wrong. Nearly anybody will side with you when you are right. " I'm a bit puzzled that Schofield would say such a thing. I don't think he'll be getting any cupcakes from Kaz Hirai any time soon.

Furthermore, I'm sure every division of Sony Computer Entertainment will be fine in the long run. This is a marathon, not a sprint. Even though Sony had a rough start with the PS3, there are plenty of great games coming and it's sure to sell millions of consoles. Having partners say things like "I hope they get out of this" makes the situation sound far worse than it actually is. With "partners" like these, who needs rivals?!?
