Seriously someone needs to explain to Jack Tretton that he really is damaging Sony’s image with his press releases and interviews.
He was recently interviewed by Newsweek about the new 40Gb model and he was asked about the lack of BC in the 40GB model and how it actually could be portrayed as a betrayal of the PlayStation brand. Jack’s answer?
Today, for $399, I’m able to get all the same technology in the Playstation 3, and for $129, if I don’t own a PlayStation 2, I can buy that as well at any retailer in North America. So for a total investment of $529, I’ve got two machines that do everything the same machine did a year ago at $599. So it’s hard for me to see that as a negative for the consumer.
So if I want my PS3 to do what you promised it would do I need to go and buy a PS2 as well?
I think the 40GB model is the best thing that Sony has done recently but Jack is on his way to ruining that now. Jack people don’t want to be told to buy more Sony goods to get what was originally promised to them.
