Microsoft Exec Does Not Like the PS3 |

Microsoft exec Aaron Greenberg extensively bashes the PS3 in an interview with Gamasutra. OK, big surprise, right? Microsoft dislikes a direct competitor.

It’s usually wisest to ignore this kind of flame bait. In the past, I’ve criticized the media for interpreting Sony’s outdated PR training as arrogance, and I’ve later critized the new (but better) faux-humble approach for being superficial and disgenuine. Video gaming is about the games, the craft that goes into them, and the enjoyment and stimulation that comes out of them.

But this is just so over the top, it’s impossible to not have a reaction. This guy is like a comic book villain that makes you want to root for his downfall.


Greenberg really did say that the PS3 business is hemorrhaging at retail. That quote isn’t even taken out of context at all; the entire interview is just complete PlayStation bashing. And this guy has really built a reputation for this kind of outrageous commentary. Remember the upscaling nonsense that he started? Or remember him accusing Sony of “snowing” consumers and the press?

    Who cares.

  • Methinks Aaron Greenbleurgh is bucking for a promotion.

    I bet he’s got a PS3 at home.

    Just remember this is coming from the same company that makes the Zune and Vista.

  • Pungyeon

    Why does this make him different from any other Microsoft employee?


  • He looks very irritating.

    I like my Zune 😛

    by the way, why does he have a PS3 controller on the table?

  • coatimundi

    Not only is that a PS3 controller, there’s a PS3 on the table behind it. We know what console he’s really playing on his off hours.

  • Jerry

    He is just upset with how Amazing the PS3 is. And is using his natural instincts to defend his own work. It makes sense to me, but he could atleast have respect for the system, seeing as it is in the same industry.

    I hear that MS is having (yet more) quality control problems, this time involving the upscaling chip. Aparently it falls off, which limits the game play experience.

    As a matter of fact, I think PSP is much better than the so called PS3, lol.
