Microsoft Says Kaz Hirai's Statements 'Out Of Touch'
Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Kazuo Hirai laid down the virtual gauntlet, saying that the Wii was not a competitor and that the Xbox 360 lacked longevity. So what does Microsoft have to say in response?
TheBitbag asked Microsoft director of product management Aaron Greenberg his opinion, and got an earful in return. Greenberg said that it sounded like "an old hardware company that's comfortable with its market position," and that Sony is "out of touch."
According to Greenberg, with the Xbox 360's U.S. install base lead is up to 7 million, he can't imagine "any scenario where the PS3 can catch up with us."
"In fact, even if you doubled the current PS3 sales and the Xbox 360 remained flat, they couldn't close the gap until 2014," Greenberg said confidently.
