Sony Says Xbox "Lacks Longevity," Microsoft Shrugs

... according to some old dead Greek guy who took a fatal swig of hemlock. The latest attempt to massage our brainwaves with persuasive oratory comes from Sony Chairman Kazuo Hirai, who reportedly told CVG the Xbox 360 "lacks longevity" and that the PlayStation 3 will eventually pull ahead.

Sony's still in denial. The reality is that, while they may have the superior hardware platform, they are getting their butt kicked in the marketplace.

Don't get me wrong; I really like my PS3. But when you see the numbers of units being sold and the PS3 is not just 3rd, but a DISTANT 3rd in a 3 horse race, you've got to wonder what they are thinking.

Sony's definition of longevity = drip feeding games.

If GT5 had been released in say November 2008, they could have sold more units.

The PS3 will only start to be worth having, from a gamers point of view, by the end of this year.

Here's another good exclusive game, God of War III:

Here's what concerns me a bit....when is PS4 due out, will they play the same backward compatible game with chip and/or software rendering? Will it make obsolete my current PS3 games?

Because from where I sit the PS3 has a life of approximately one year or much less...Number two went out in 6 weeks!!

My guess is that the PS4 will just be a faster, beefed-up PS3. If so, it should be possible for it to run PS3 games without increasing manufacturing costs.

I can't see Sony developing completely new hardware like the Cell, again. Way too expensive.

Sony plans to focus on the PS3 for 10 years after it's launch. I don't think there's any attention being placed on the PS4. One has to wonder if they can afford another round...

Very encouraging guys. As you know I've pretty much bet the farm on PS3 coming though for us!
