Dear Sony, Would You Please Shut Up

Whilst discussing a partnership with the Official Playstation Magazine in the UK and the nifty Killzone 2 stuff that they are packaging together with the new issue, David Wilson, the UK PR Manager at SCE UK, had the following to add:

“Killzone 2 has been a long time in the making, and best showcases why PlayStation 3 is the only console powerful enough to deliver a ground-breaking title of this nature.”

Give me a break Mr. Wilson and tell your company to stop running it’s mouth.

More after the jump.

Why is it that Sony still think that they can pull this whole story of the Playstation 3 being so incredibly powerful and amazing that nothing else can come remotely close to it.

Please. Both the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3 have shown that they are very capable and that at the end of the day, the playing field is pretty much level. I have yet to see any of these two consoles pull off a game that the other could not.

At worst, the other console would run a little slower but saying that the Playstation 3 is “the only console powerful enough to deliver a ground-breaking title of this nature.” is an absolute heap of donkey dung and Sony knows it, so I wish they would stop saying it. Blu-Ray doesn’t count because it has nothing to do with power and the game could be split onto two discs.

I really see no reason why Gears of War couldn’t run on Playstation 3 and why Killzone 2 couldn’t run on the Xbox 360. Making statements that your console is the only one powerful enough to handle a game is rather silly in my opinion and makes you look like a fool.

Unless of course, he was talking about the Wii and completely forgot that the Xbox 360 existed.
