Microsoft Launches PS3 Hate in Japan

May 4, 2009 Written by Dan Massi


Microsoft has launched an anti-PS3 campaign in Japan. The company has released a pamphlet to the Japanese public, taking shots at the PlayStation 3 left and right.

The cover itself says, “Xbox 360 over PS3 if you are picking multi-platform games”. Really? The pamphlet also calls out the [shal]PS3[/shal] on price, saying “XBOX Live Arcade system – cheaper than the PS3″. It also describes Tales of Vesperia superior on the Xbox 360.

Pretty odd considering the PS3 version fixes problems from the 360 version, in addition to including more content. It’s surprising to see how far Microsoft has gone in order to mislead potential customers. Let’s see where they go next.
