Sony Computer Entertainment President Kazuo Hirai has stated that the PlayStation 3 is the only system capable of delivering a “true generation” quality gaming experience.
Speaking during the company’s Business Review in Tokyo yesterday, Hirai commented, “As PlayStation 3 approaches the second anniversary of its release, the release of PS3 software titles with the true generation quality only available on PS3 is accelerating.”
Hirai attributed the machine’s difficult start to the fact Sony originally marketed the console as a multimedia device, noting that things have picked up since it repositioned the PS3 as a videogames console.
"However, by refocusing the positioning of PS3 first and foremost as a gaming platform, we were able to bring an attractive title lineup and achieve a sufficient number of PS3 sales as expected in the fiscal year 2007 holiday season," he added.
