SCEE's Andrew House has said motion sensing technology is "one of the essentials" for PlayStation 3, before giving the "high-definition entertainment" sales pitch.
Talk to a Sony executive about PS3 and you can be sure to hear 'Blu-ray' inside of a minute, as it's "one of the best Blu-ray players around" which almost "gets lost in the mix" apparently.
"That's one of the essentials," House tells , in response to how important is motion-sensing to the PS3 lifecycle. "But the PlayStation 3 is also one of the best Blu-ray players around for high-definition movies and that almost gets lost in the mix."
"That gives it an enormous sense of longevity, people want the best if they are buying into high-definition entertainment from a television standpoint or from a movie standpoint. That's an inherently long lifecycle and it helps bolster the traditional gaming lifecycle as well."
As for speculation on pricing: "No, it's too early to say. We'll take our time with it," he said. As long as we don't have to suffer a price tag close to the new PSP Go we should be alright.
