The PS3 is "perhaps" the only one that "grows more valuable over time" says Patrick Seybold. They immediately talk of 'coming out the gate into 2011'.
"Since PlayStation Move was introduced in September, millions of consumers and gamers have joined the PlayStation family," said Sony's Patrick Seybold. "The key to Move's long-term success is developer and publisher support; enabling PlayStation to offer the most diverse line-up of motion and 3D games."
"The combination of innovative hardware and a relentless line up of blockbuster titles is why the PS3 is perhaps the only console that grows more valuable over time."
"As we come out of the gates in 2011," he continued, "PlayStation is brimming with new games to whet the appetite for all gamers, like next week's highly anticipated launch of LittleBigPlanet 2, which received top scores."
"And right around the corner, Killzone 3 is positioned to set a new standard in hardcore gaming as the first AAA title to utilise both 3D and Move functionality." It's true that 2011 is holding a scorcher or two for the platform. Missing from Sony's own little debrief of the latest NPD figures were, well, any figures mentioning PS3 hardware sales.
"According to the December NPD, PlayStation is the only console company to show year over year software growth with an impressive 32 per cent increase in sales," commented Seybold, hoping to oh-so-subtlety gloss over the missing digits.
PlayStation Move's sales numbers weren't included either, though he did boast of "PlayStation's steady expansion of software titles to create what is without doubt the most exciting line-up of motion control gaming options available to consumers today".
"We look forward to the year ahead as we continue to deliver the kind of compelling, innovative and diverse content experiences that have kept the PlayStation brand synonymous with premier entertainment for over 15 years," added Seybold.
