- PS3 to live 10 years: Sony's Dille on firmware updates, Competition & More
With the holiday shopping season about to be in full swing, we sit down with the big three console makers, get their thoughts on their 2007 year, why consumers should want their respective console this year, plans for after the new year and much more.
We wrap up our series with an interview with Sony's senior vice president of marketing, Peter Dille. While Sony may be in third place in the console horse race, behind Nintendo and Microsoft, don't count it out yet. As Dille is quick to point out, the PlayStation
3 is holding its own when it comes to core features and exclusive titles. While Microsoft grabbed headlines after grabbing previously exclusive PS3 titles like Assassin's Creed and Virtua Fighter 5, you're still only going to be playing games like Heavenly Sword, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and Ratchet & Clank Future on Sony's machine. We talked with Dille about exclusivity, the embattled Blu-ray format and the company's plans for 2008.
Note: We originally intended this story to run Nov. 21, and after several delays and false starts, we finally got our questions answered. We apologize for the tardiness, Sony fans.
