Greenberg says Pressure is on Sony

Aaron Greenberg(Director of Product Management for Xbox 360/Xbox Live) gave a piece of his mind in an interview with our robotic friends at Destructoid about Sony and their false promises.

Aaron had this to say about Home:

Think back to GDC 2007 when Sony promised to leap ahead in online with the Sony Home unveil. Here we are two years later and multiple delays for a product that has appears to have little to no buzz. Where are the achievements? The friends list integration across all games? Where is the long-promised video store?

Aaron goes on to say that Microsoft is readying to release a second Gears game while Sony hasn’t even released the first next-gen version of Killzone.

Then three years ago at E3 they showed what PS3 games would supposedly look like with the Killzone 2 video, that we are now learning will ship four years later. That means that we will have shipped Gears of War and Gears of War 2 before they can even get Killzone out the door.

Aaron wraps up his barrage of words with this nice little ditty:

The days of Sony snowing the consumers and the press are over, I think the pressure is now really on them more than ever to deliver on all of these promises.

You know Aaron does have a point. Where is Sony’s marketplace? Where is Home? Metal Gear Solid 4 will surely help out Sony, but where are the features which Sony has been touting for years?

  1. Thems is fighten words. I like it!

  2. I was thinking about this the other day when I saw that Killzone 2 was delayed until next year.

    A lot of people gave MS crap for showing only 2007 games at E3 last year while Sony was showing off everything they possibly could. Flash forward to this month, we’re almost at E3 again. Several of Sony’s big deal items were delayed.

    I just wonder, in retrospect, if people would change their minds about who better used E3 to their advantage. I don’t really care who “won”, but it’s just funny how this has all worked out.

    The PS3’s slogan is still essentially “Will be awesome eventually”. Personally I’m willing to wait for major price cuts still lol.
