Hirai: ‘We can’t allow Nintendo to run away with it’

Global Sony Computer Entertainment boss Kaz Hirai has reiterated that the focus of PS3 is games – and demanded that PlayStation “can’t allow Nintendo to run off alone”.

Despite boasting of PS3’s Blu-Ray capability and processor power in the past, Hiari has once again said that the company’s focus for the system is games software.

In an interview with Nikkei (translated by Kotaku), Hirai said:

“The thing that I did when I took over last year was to boast the appeal of games themselves... The main premise of the PS3 is video games. That's the absolutely most important thing that we cannot lose sight of.

Hirai added that making games Sony’s priority would expand the firm’s position in the marketplace. And about Nintendo, Hirai said, "We cannot allow Nintendo run off alone."
