Sony compares apples and oranges, calls out Wii's lack of features


Sony's latest press release is likely to stoke the ire of Wii fans by including this chart, a not-entirely-objective breakdown of the PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii. Okay, so we understand it is Sony's job to sell PS3s (though the company struggles with that, bless it), but various truths are being rather severely bent here. We're sure you don't need us to point out where facts are being stretched and contorted.

Further on in the release, Sony declares that the Wii's "lack of enhanced features comes at the expense of a comprehensive entertainment solution." A "comprehensive entertainment system," Sony fails to add, that only a minority of console buyers have shown any interest in. Far be it from us to sound petty, but past the break we have three more suggestions for Sony's "Functionality" column.

  • Motion-based controls
  • Nintendo first-party software
  • Backwards compatibility
