Sony: Were head-to-head with MS

PlayStation platform holder Sony is in bullish mood ahead of the upcoming launches of both PS3 Slim and PSPgo, believing that its two new machines have given it the footing it needs to square up to the challenge posed by Microsoft’s Xbox 360.

We’ve competing very seriously, head-to-head, with Microsoft in Europe right now – and this gives us a major opportunity to do that more aggressively,” House told MCV at Gamescom.

We have very high hopes for the new PS3 and think it will deliver a significant increase in our sales.”

House stopped short of making any ‘further bold predictions’ saying it’s a little dangerous to make statements like that given the seasonality of our industry and the current climate”, but admitted Sony is quietly confident about its offer in Q3 and Q4.
