Sony takes jab at Microsoft, says 360 is 'reliant' on shooters
Take one look at the 2010 lineup for the high-definition consoles and one trend becomes - shooters are big. This holiday season, Halo: Reach, Call of Duty: Black Ops and Medal of Honor are set to dominate retail, while games like MAG and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 were big hitters at the beginning of the year.
Microsoft's platform has a particular penchant for guns. Earlier this week, the company's UK head Neil Thomspon even told CVG that Microsoft was actively pursuing new first-person shooter franchises. "We'll be looking to have lots of FPS games, ideally exclusive to us [in the future]," he said.
Now, Sony has taken a jab at the Xbox 360 for the lack of diverse software offered by the platform holder. "We've never been reliant on one product genre like one of our competitors," Peter Dille, senior vice president of marketing at SCEA, told video game advertising site The [A]List Daily.
"[Sony has] titles ranging from Killzone to EyePet. PlayStation is a very big tent and ... it's helped us sell 377 million PlayStation hardware products and two billion software products in 15 years," the executive added.
