This is the same man that says the PSP owns the DS in sales.

The big problem is Tretton is the President of SCE now so when he says something stupid to the media everyone knows very fast.

I dont think that makes much difference, there was a jane doe PR rep at CES nobody knew about, but her words spread quick to ign/gamespot/1up.

Harrison is president of SCEWW so it's not like his words spread much slower. I think Harrison is a more grounded person and his FUD is significantly less than they rest of sony.

Heres his most recent interview from gamespot.

Last week, the Best Buy in Lex, had 15 in stock, and had to have a slogan to sell them at all..."We will beat any price guaranteed, or it's free"

LOL

15 x $1200...hmm

I received that magazine a week ago and thought it was an interesting read. I went to gamestop earlier today and they had 3 60GB's and 2 used 20GB's.
I was told that the systems are being returned faster than they can sell them.

Sony AND the PS3 AND Blu-Ray are just JOKES. What a goof. My Blockbuster store won't even carry anything other than 1 copy of 3 games for the PS3 because they KNOW it won't get rented out. TBH, I think Madden is the only PS3 game that has been rented out period.

I don't know about this particular subject, or Sony's PR in general, and I am not a console fanboy (I don't even own any of the major three current gen consoles) but one thing is for certain:

PS3 commercials are among the most retarded commercials I have ever seen.

Thank you.
