This time it’s *shock horror* Microsoft’s UK Retail Boss Neil Thompson’s turn to have a go at Sony claiming they are forcing consumers into buying unproven technology:
“I find it concerning for consumers that they’re being forced into a purchase… I don’t think they need to make that decision for another two, three years maybe. Sony now have a very interesting business model I think they’re going to find challenging.”
Nobody is being forced to buy a PS3. Nobody is holding a gun to my head demanding I buy a PS3.
The difference between BR & HD-DVD is that all PS3 games will come on BRD so regardless of whether BR wins or loses the next-gen DVD war BR will still be used for gaming. Yes it could financially cripple Sony IF BR fails as the next-gen DVD of choice but it won’t make the PS3 useless & extinct.
