Atari Founder Sinks Sony’s Ship More November 9, 2006Posted by dpcough in Xbox/ Xbox 360 General.
Atari started videogaming in home consoles. Even though know they can barely stay alive with credit troubles and bad games. When the Atari founder speaks we listen though because he started console gaming. Today he had some harsh words for Sony. His Sony Comments:
“ I think Sony shot themselves in the foot… there is a high probability [they] will fail. The price point is probably unsustainable. For years and years Sony has been a very difficult company to deal with from a developer standpoint. They could get away with their arrogance and capriciousness because they had an installed base. They have also historically had horrible software tools. You compare that to the Xbox 360 with really great authoring tools [and] additional revenue streams from Xbox live… a first party developer would be an idiot to develop for Sony first and not the 360. People don’t buy hardware, they buy software.”
He then goes on to state how the PS2 and PS only succeded because the came out with good timing (xbox360 anyone?) Sony’s PR should scramble quick, the boat is sinking even more.
