Reggie Fils-Aime has said some pretty interesting things regarding the PlayStation 3. Not always the system itself, rather he puts in his green contacts and stares longingly at the games due out for Sony's console, like LittleBigPlanet
. He now thinks that the 360 and PS3 are in a tough spot, since both developed expensive consoles that are difficult for for game makers to develop content for. He said that "the challenge that our competitors have is significant. They've gone down the path with building expensive machines that they lose money on. They've gone down the path with games that are hard to develop."
Fils-Aime followed this up with "They've put themselves in a box. I don't know how they're going to get out of it." As if this were a magic show, our dear Fils-Aime! You should know even the most advanced magicians need time to unbind their shackles and escape the container of water (or create a cloning device to make it appear that way ... cookies to the reference-catcher). It's going to be a fairly decisive holiday season, so it seems, but Fils-Aime shouldn't worry about the PS3 and 360. Different strokes for different folks and all that. They'll get out of their box on their own.
