GDC 07: 'It's all about software now' says Harrison
Posted by XanTium | 9-3-2007 16:06 EST

 
From gamesindustry.biz:


Sony Worldwide Studios boss Phil Harrison has told GamesIndustry.biz that the company is set to focus on software now that the "challenges" of recent months are in the past.

"I can't deny that we've had some challenges, but I think those are all behind us," he said.

"It's all about software now, it's not about hardware. It's all about services, it's about the way the industry is changing and the way we hope to be taking a leadership position in that change."

"We're taking some pretty giant steps forward... The keynote here at GDC was a very, very significant moment for the evolution of PlayStation 3," he observed.

If it's all about software, where are the games?

Yeah, they need more games now. Though that LittleBigPlanet stole the show at GDC... but who knows how far out that game really is.

Which one is it? Software? or Service? The PS3 network isn't exactly blowing anyone away, BluRay isn't a huge reason to buy one, what is making the service so compelling to say games are now what's left?

You know, I like Microsofts saying better.

"It's all about the games."

Dude, why don't you get it? It's their freakin job to try to convince people to buy their console, IT'S BUSINESS!!! It's their job to keep shooting BS like all other companies. How the hell can you sell if you stay quiet?
