Stay Classy, Jack

“[Microsoft and Nintendo] are starting to run out of steam now in terms of continuing to be relevant in 2011 and beyond. I mean, you’ve gotta be kidding me. Why would I buy a gaming system without a hard drive in it? How does this thing scale? Motion gaming is cute, but if I can only wave my arms six inches, how does this really feel like I’m doing true accurate motion gaming? Our view of the ‘Game Boy experience’ is that it’s a great babysitting tool, (but) no self-respecting 20-something is going to be sitting on an airplane with one of those. He’s too old for that.” – Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Jack Tretton

I hate to roll out the meme, but… uh… u mad, bro.

Seriously, did the Nintendo lineup kick his puppy today or something? Cripes, man. I’d normally post something longer in response, but it’s probably not worth the effort.

    I would laugh at this, but Sony trying to shame gamers into buying their products is nothing new, particularly this generation.

  2. Oh, definitely, but this just takes it to a whole new level. They’re outright insulting the people they’re copying for doing it (motion controls, handhelds) better than them. It just seems /desperate/ at this point.
