Xbox 360 director of product management, Aaron Greenberg has assaulted Sony once more today. He claims the company has a history of not delivering on promises to gamers.

“I was basically expressing my frustration at a lot of specific things that they had promised over time,” he said, speaking in the latest Major Nelson podcast.

“I think Sony has had a history of over-promising and under-delivering. [I was] just using actual facts of all the things that they had promised. I think I talked to some folks about this afterwards, but I think as an industry, we owe it to our customers to be straight with them. I think that some of the stuff we’ve talked about, while the reaction may not always be positive, we’re going to tell you… People just want you to be straight with them. We know titles slip, we know things happen, and there’s little we can do to control that, but if we promise something – I think as an industry – we need to start living up to our promises. As an organisation, i think Xbox has a pretty good track record of doing that.”

He also went on to say that the Xbox Live Marketpalce is like Wal-Mart while the PLAYSTATION Store ris like Quickie Mart.

“We’re at 17,000: the PlayStation Network is just around 600 items,” he said. “This is like comparing a Wal-Mart superstore or a Cost-Co to your local Quickie Mart, right? It’s at extreme ends… In the first year we had more than 600 items. We were way ahead of that.”

Those 17,000 items include GamerPics, TV Shows, Movies, Demos, and everything else in the service in the US.
