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?
