Xbox Manager Bitch Slaps Sony for Every PlayStation 3 Misstep

This generation of gaming has slowly transformed many into flame suit wearing fanboys. I will have to agree I have been steadily and slowly sucked into the vacuum of fanboyism.

Xbox product manager Aaron Greenberg brought his flame suit and battle axe to do a pretty interesting interview with Destructoid regarding Sony missteps with their darling the PS3.

Fuel for the Flame:

  • “We have been fighting Sony’s promises from the day we entered the market and if you remember at that time it was all about PS2 being an online cybercity with partner announcements from the likes of RealNetworks and AOL,”
  • “Where are the achievements? The friends list integration across all games? Where is the long-promised video store? Where are all the other products using and networking with their CELL chip? How come Blu-ray did not result in better games? What happened with Sixaxis and rumble? Where is the complete 1080p game library we were promised? If Blu-ray as they said would be such a catalyst to PS3 console sales, then why have PS3 sales over the past couple months not seen any lift since the format victory?”
  • “The reality is that Xbox 360 is leading this generation with a larger installed base, more than 2xs the games library, the most exclusives along with the leading online service and community. While we have not yet announced all of our plans for the full year, I am confident that we will extend our lead over the PS3 in 2008,”
That sounds like fighting words to me......I am pretty content with the direction that Sony is going with the PS3 and when the dust settles we will look back at the Sony PS3 as the true innovator of Next Generation Gaming.
