In an interview with Gamesindustry.biz Sony UK boss Ray Maguire said that the PS3 is leaving behind the competition. HEre is a sample of the interview:
“Many people are saying we’re now joining the next-generation console era, but I believe we’ve stepped over the current next-gen to create the real next-generation,” said Maguire, in an exclusive interview published today.
Maguire believes the stand out features of the PlayStation 3 – the Blu-ray player, the HDMI and 1080p support, and the Cell chip – are all crucial to distinguishing the console from the competition.
“All of those things are part of moving from the PlayStation 2 era to the PlayStation 3 and leaving behind all of the middle products that are in the market place right now, which clearly don’t compare in terms of technical prowess,” he said.
