Eyebrows remain unraised as MS Japan chief has a pop at Sony's next-gen console

In news so crushingly predictable, we should probably have written this story up randomly one quiet afternoon when there wasn't much else to do, Microsoft's Japanese Xbox 360 general manager Takahashi Sensui has lambasted (or at least 'had a grumble about') Sony's PS3, describing it as "too expensive" for a games machine.... read more

Despite its price tag :twisted:

Why do microsoft boffins have to keep going on at the price of the PS3? The PS3 price tag should make them happy, no? The way they speak, they sound almost angry. Could this be becasue they are scared that even though the PS3 has a higher price tag they know it will still sell more units than their inferior Xbox360

Microsoft might be trying to draw the attention of the Japanese gaming public to the price of the PS3- but there is something Microsoft have failed to understand...

ITS NOT ABOUT THE CHEAPNESS OF THE CONSOLE.


If it was, the 360 would have been selling millions in Japan. Instead it is being outsold by the Gamecube!

Its about the desirability of the console and the games. As it stands the PS3 is the most expensive but its perceived (in Japan) to be the best and most powerful.

And for our next piece of breaking news from a microsoft official, "the sky is actually blue", or maybe "the earth is round".

Those are two of the most blindingly obvious statements I've ever read.

Obviously not going for the shock and awe tactic was he :D If I was him I'd be more worried about my job the way the 360 is performing in Japan because he has to know the Asian market is a gimme for Sony right now, especially if it comes out before Wii.

yes, it is expensive... WHO f**king CARES?!?! the ppl that want one will still buy them. just let it rest. is M$ angry because they realize it will still sell, and maybe they couldve priced the 360 higher and made more money? please, i am sick of talking about the ps3 price. im not gonna buy one right away. theres my decision. now everybody go make their own, and stop trying to push it on everybody else!! (not you guys in particular that have preceded my post, just the masses in general who are fanboy ass holes)
