Well Motorstorm could still be a launch title.....for the UK.

I'm assuming the man has a ton to deal with and he didn't get the job because he knows about the game division. Then again these interviews are scheduled so you'd think he'd do some homework before hand.

Well the one that made me scratch my head was from Gamespot. It was a video interview and it was for the PS3 US launch. They asked him "For those not sure if they want to buy a PS3, convince em using only 1 word" and his reply was Motorstorm. First off, I played Motorstorm, and IMO it's fun but not worth buying a $600 system over. I don't think any racing game is worth buying a system over, unless it's like a GT type game, in which case I don't consider it racing... more like a driving sim. I can see how Harrison could have personal ties to Motorstorm, but I still think you should be making people buy your system now and not wait til a killer app is out. Look at Halo 3, MS is doing tons of promos that involve them promoting the game to 360 owners (such as the early beta), to make sure all the Halo fans make the switch to the 360.

Lol, I didn't see that one.

I agree MS is doing a WAY better job than Sony in terms of marketing the system and games. Sony needs some promos, more demos etc. Hell throw the Heavenly Sword Arena demo online or something. Halo 3 still has a lot of time before release and I've already seen commercials, promos and adds.

Resistance is old news.....time to move on Sony!

Wow, talk about taking a small comment and running with it. I think you are seriously making too big of a deal out of it. Watch the video again.

The exact question was "if you could tell anybody looking forward to the ps3, one thing they can be very excited about what would it be?" and he said motorstorm, is that really a big deal?

Hmmm... he could have said Metal Gear, Devil May Cry, Gran Turismo etc etc but I see your point. They put him on the spot and I guess Motorstorm was the first thing that popped in his head. Not a big deal really.
