During the PlayStation Business Review in Tokyo, Kaz Hirai admits the platform had a rocky start but momentum is now on their side.
He cites Metal Gear Solid 4 as one of these "true generation" games and as developers are no longer "confused" with the PS3, more will be on their way.
"As PlayStation 3 approaches the second anniversary of its release, the release of PS3 software titles with the true generation quality only available on PS3 is accelerating," proclaimed Hirai.
The problem was their decision to try and market their next-gen system as a broad-based media system instead of hammering home the videogame console message as clearly.
"By refocusing the positioning of PS3 first and foremost as a gaming platform, we were able to bring an attractive title lineup and achieve a sufficient number of PS3 sales as expected in the fiscal year 2007 holiday season."
I'm hoping one such title in that line-up of "true generation" is Sucker Punch's inFamous, due out sometime next year.
