On his way out the door, Sony Europe President David Reeves believes the PS3 will be the market leader in three to five years. GI.biz's interview with the parting exec reveals his prognostication that the PS3's performance will be a "tortoise and hare situation," with the PS3 obviously representing the slow and steady creature from the fable.

Reeves restates that he is actually "retiring" and that we won't announce he's with a new company on May 1. He believes that he might do some stuff in the games industry, but he has no concrete plans. Right now, he's just going to "get some rest because it's been a very tough year."
