Hirai says 360 lacks longevity, won't top PS3

Sony and the PS3 have taken their lumps in the media recently, but leave it to Kaz Hirai to stand by the big black box even in the toughest times: Hirai recently told Official PlayStation Magazine that in order to describe the 360, he needed a single word that meant "lacks longevity."

But even that semi-burn wasn't enough to appease the Hiraicane's appetite for destruction. He added, "Unless things go really bad, there's no way that at the end of a life cycle our competition is going to have a higher install base."

OK, so maybe he's not providing any actual justification for his claims, but it's still nice to see that Sony still has fight in them.
