GDC 07: Nintendo may grab headlines, but Sony still has sales
Sony's Phil Harrison was quick to remind his audience yesterday that Sony is still the number one brand, and that he personally doesn't feel like Sony is losing. The combined sales of the PlayStation brand show that gamers want PlayStation products: the PlayStation 2 is still the greatest-selling console on the market; and the PLAYSTATION 3 has sold faster than the PlayStation 2 and Xbox 360 in the same time frame.
"While certain systems grab headlines," Harrison commented about the recent love of Nintendo by the gaming press, "sales are what matter."

When faced with the issue of the launch library drought, Harrison noted that the PS2 and PS1 didn't have the greatest launches ever: "Fantavision, bless its cotton soul, was NOT going to establish a 100 million system ... The Bouncer [Square launch game] was NOT a good game."
