In recent reports it was revealed that the 360 was “beating PS3 in Europe.” As simple as it may sound, Sony has moved to dispel Microsoft claims revealing internal figures that say its console has sold 300,000 more units than Xbox 360 in PAL territories.
And the company also doesn’t feel it has to follow Microsoft and further ignite consumer interest with a price cut of its own anytime soon. Sony will remain focused on the value offered by the PS3 and its extra functions and services.
“No we are not going to go down in price; neither are we going to go down in price on PS3 in spring time either. Absolutely not, whatever you might have heard to the contrary,” said SCEE president David Reeves.
“Our strategy is very much value added.” Reeves added. Sony’s business model for the console isn’t designed around dropping the RRP every time a manufacturing cost saving has been found. And he was keen to point out that, according to Sony figures, the PS3 is already ahead of Microsoft’s rival.
First it was "Blu-ray is the wave of the future" now Sony seems to think that the "disc-based delivery system will fall". According to a report giving by the guys over at Destructoid, SCEE president David Reeves said, at a developer conference in London, that the future is the PlayStation Network. At the conference he also gave some internal figures that showed over 40 per cent of PS3 owners download games direct to their machines.
"We do believe that the disc-based delivery system will fall as the power of the network base rises. At the same time, the overall industry growth will continue to go upwards as we push out into emerging markets."
