The PlayStation 3
is a very important console as it is one of the most powerful in terms of hardware and is filled with interesting features like a Blu-ray drive, essential for big games. But a heavy toll comes with such specs, as it is the most expensive device on the market.
The fact that it almost always comes in at the number three spot, behind its main rivals, Microsoft and Nintendo, has made a lot of people from the industry skeptic about its chances to bounce back, as the company revealed that a price cut
wouldn't be made anytime soon.
All of these things culminated with Activision's president Bobby Kotick revealing that his company might drop support
for the PS3 in the next two years if changes weren't made. Now, Sony has issued a statement, through spokesman Patrick Seybold, which emphasizes the momentum of its sales and growth.
“PlayStation has tremendous momentum coming out of E3, and we are seeing positive growth with more than 350 titles slated to hit across all our platforms, including many anticipated games from our publishing partners,” Seybold says. “We enjoy healthy business relationships with and greatly value our publishing partners and are working closely with them to deliver the best entertainment experience.”
While partly true, as Sony revealed a lot of interesting games for its platform alongside the promise of a new motion sensitive technology that would be launched next year, you can feel the lack of concrete numbers as the statement is akin to all of the spins that we see when the NPD numbers are released and Sony doesn't have anything concrete to brag about.
Look forward to more news reports about a possible price cut and how the industry sees the PlayStation 3 in the months to come.
