â€œI was basically expressing my frustration at a lot of specific things that they had promised over time,â€ he said, speaking in the latest Major Nelson podcast.
â€œI 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 weâ€™ve talked about, while the reaction may not always be positive, weâ€™re going to tell youâ€¦ People just want you to be straight with them. We know titles slip, we know things happen, and thereâ€™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.â€
He also went on to say that the Xbox Live Marketpalce is like Wal-Mart while the PLAYSTATION Store ris like Quickie Mart.
â€œWeâ€™re at 17,000: the PlayStation Network is just around 600 items,â€ he said. â€œThis is like comparing a Wal-Mart superstore or a Cost-Co to your local Quickie Mart, right? Itâ€™s at extreme endsâ€¦ In the first year we had more than 600 items. We were way ahead of that.â€
Those 17,000 items include GamerPics, TV Shows, Movies, Demos, and everything else in the service in the US.
