Ding ding! Everybody back in the ring! Those cheeky execs are at it again, this time with Sony Computer Entertainment America boss Kaz Hirai accusing Microsoft of stealing all Sony's ideas. Buckle up boys, this could get rocky!
Speaking to PlayStation Magazine, in an avalanche of irony so heavy it's a surprise the weight of his words didn't squash the poor guy flat, Hirai winged, "Every time we go down a path, we look behind and [Microsoft is] right there - we just can't shake these guys. I wish that they would come up with some strategies of their own, but they seem to be going down the path of everything we do. If you look at their strategy in other business areas as well, they tend to do that."
Woah, fighting talk there buddy! That's not all though, according to Hirai, Microsoft's strategy of launching an HD-DVD add-on is all cock-eyed too. "And the other thing is, you take a look at, for example, the fact that we incorporate the Blu-ray drive from day one," Hirai frothed, "You're not going to be asking me, 'So, talk to me about this Blu-ray add-on that you have. Does it work for games? Is it just for movies?' That's exactly the kind of pitfall you fall into if you launch something that's too early, too premature..."
So, another day, another console exec unleashing verbal blows. Let us know what you think about all this in the comments below - in the meantime, we're off to the fallout shelter.
