Square Enix: Sony needs to define PS3

Ben Parfitt
Yoichi Wada, the CEO of Japanese games giant Square Enix, has claimed that Microsoft is the only current platform holder who remains dedicated to selling in the games market, that the Wii is being bought as a toy and that Sony is unsure about what its machine really is.

In an interview with CNet translated by Kotaku, Yoichi states: “The Wii is the antithesis of the Xbox 360. 360 is strictly for hardcore gamers. The attachment rate for the Xbox 360 is much higher than for the Wii.

“People who buy the 360 really like games. I think the current trend is that most people aren't buying the Wii as a game machine, but as a toy.

“It seems that Sony isn't sure what it wants to do. Is it making high-end electronics or a game console for gamers? I want them to clearly define their console.”
