Sony's Jack Tretton sticks with 10 year message


As the sales figures continue to show that the PS3 ain't shakin' what its mama gave 'em, Sony's Jack "We're still waiting for our $24,000" Tretton speaks to the LA Times and brings us back the 10 year life cycle message. Tretton tells the LA Times, "We didn't get into PS3 for the first six months of 2007 -- we're into this for the next 10 years and beyond ... A million units one way or another at this point isn't going to worry us."

Sadly, the optimistic Tretton quote was buried somewhere in the story. The first quote was actually from a 32-year-old tech savvy entrepreneur who pretty much echoes a choir of consumers at this point saying, "There's no compelling reason for me to buy it ... There aren't enough good games for it. And it's too expensive." Don't expect Tretton to talk price drop anytime soon.

Kyoshi Shin of the International Game Developers Association is quoted saying, "When people talk about the PS3 on chat forums they say it's like going to a very expensive restaurant and not getting anything to eat." Maybe it's like a good expensive restaurant that takes time to prepare your meal? We hope to get our food soon though, we're getting hungry.
