In this war between Sony and Microsoft regarding their consoles, you can hear anything. Check this out.
It seems that Sony executives think that when PS3 will hit the shelves it will make the PC obsolete. Yeah right.
This week the German magazine Der Spiegel had a little article with Phil Harrison, president of Sony Computer Entertainment.
He denied the thing that the idea with motion-sensing was taken from Nintendo.
“In a certain way, I understand why people would say, but it is stupid, if you’ll forgive me saying so,” said Harrison.
Next, he continued praising the PS3. He said that the Linux-based operating system on the console’s hard drive will have enough processing power and nongaming functionalities to render traditional PCs–most of which use a form of Microsoft’s Windows OS–useless.
Sure that PS3 is a powerful machine and has a lot of other things like wired and wireless network, media reader and USB ports, but to render PC obsolete?
“We believe that the PS3 will be the place where our users play games, watch films, browse the Web, and use other computer functions,” said Harrison. “The PlayStation 3 is a computer. We do not need the PC.”
Is really Sony against the idea of PC remaining the number one gaming device or against the media center thing that comes from their rival, Microsoft.
I don’t see PS3 allowing you to use a word editor, a spreadsheet editor, edit or create photos, or maybe use an AutoCad program. So maybe Sony will want to choose their words next time. Because PS3 will be nothing like a PC compared to what both can do.
Well, I’ll leave it to you to discuss whether Sony is right or not.
