Kaz Hirai on Xbox One vs. PS4 This Holiday: “We Want to Make Sure That we Have the Best and Compelling Games”
Kaz Hirai, CEO of Sony and Hottest Man in Games, was interviewed today on CNBC as part of a larger story that involved Sony as a whole, including their $8.5 billion dollars lost in the Electronics sector during the past decade.
Among all the financial jargon, the PS4 came up, with Kaz being asked,: “How are you going to be able to position [the PS4] to be a better gaming experience than the Xbox One, and get ahead of them, features-wise?” Here was his response:
I think that with any PlayStation platform launch, and certainly with PlayStation 4, we want to make sure that we have the best and compelling games that we bring to our consumers and fans through both our first party studio products, as well as from our third party partners. And that obviously, in this generation of software and hardware, is going to include a lot of social aspects, a lot of network aspects as well. But I think we’ve been synonymous with bringing compelling gaming experiences to customers around the world and PS4 is no exception.
So far in the interview (which has now concluded), there haven’t been any crazy Kaz facial expressions or Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiidge Raaaaaaaaaaaaaceeeeeeerrrrs, so it doesn’t look like any new memes will pop up from this. I guess we’ll just have to wait for E3.
What do you think of Kaz’s answer? Let us know in the comments below.
