Judge PS3 in two years

EA boss Gerhard Florin told GamesIndustry.biz that the effect of the PS3 price will only become apparent two years after release. Florin believes that the price will not hold back sales in the first twelve months.

“Look at the price in two years’ time, and then you can say whether it’s too high. Whether it’s too high or not the consumer has to decide, but I don’t think for the first year the price will be a problem which holds anything back.”

Florin had some things to say about Microsoft and Nintendo as well:

“I wouldn’t make any judgements within the next two years. The first two years will clearly be an open race, everybody will do very well. I believe all three [consoles] are worth supporting in different ways.”

“Something like Harry Potter is a very clear candidate to lead on the Wii. Shooters like Medal of Honor, Black, we will clearly concentrate on PlayStation 3 because we need Cell processor power. Then we’ve got more strategic, online-orientated games that we concentrate more on 360.

I agree that right now it’s to soon the judge how each system will fare and in between 2-5 years we will have a clear view of this so called console war. It’s to early to say that the PS3 is dead since its only been out months, its too early to say the Wii is a fad at this point but they better fuel these people demands since it damn hard to find one, people are going to look elsewhere pretty soon. Its too early to say that the one year lead Xbox 360 has will hold up and if sales in Japan will boost up or stay low as they are now.

Only time is going to tell what will happen.

    I completely agree!!! That has got to be a first lol.

    Gerhard Florin is right. Take his advice one step further though… Not only should you judge the PS3 in 2 years (when there’s something to judge), but you shouldn’t buy one until then either! That is unless you want to buy me one! I want a Blu-ray player 😉 If I start saving up now, I should be able to get one in 2 years. lol Go figure!

    This is getting a bit much more subjective, but I very much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you speedily see connected albums, songs, or other users associated to what you’re listening to. Clicking on a single of individuals will center on that item, and one more set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” can also be excellent enjoyable, letting you discover other people with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist developed based on an amalgamation of what all your good friends are listening to, which can be enjoyable. Individuals concerned with privacy will probably be relieved to know you’ll be able to avoid the public from seeing your individual listening habits should you so select.
