MMM...... All I got from this was
"We got more games coming. Games that will run only on the PS3 (I would assume so since they are first party...) watch out."
That's actually true. The only games that I assume are being referred to are first party.
Considering the 360's current library, imo, they would have to put out quite a ass-ton of first party games to reach that oh so unattainable gamerankings equality.
While I don't subscribe to gamerankings myself, I do believe that the site breeds inferiority compex and false assertions about a ton of games. According to them, Uncharted, and Elite Beat Agents aren't AAA, but Winning Eleven 6 and NCAA Football 2004 are.
That said, I guess the speaker could be talking about future games, and pretending like the past and back library doesn't exist. Even then, however, Sony surely must be putting out quite a lot more first party games than they are in 2008, if they want to be significantly better than what Microsoft probably has planned. Especially since MS can also get its exclusives from 3rd party publishers.
Now, granted, there are a couple of big 3rd party games for the PS3, but those are gonna dry up, and since Sony isn't investing anymore in 3rd parties, we'll have very few games sticking with the console out of the "loyalty > profit" mantra.
In essence, I don't know how Sony is gonna keep up with Microsoft exclusives and exclusive content, since they are no longer paying for 3rd party support, as stated by them. Much less how they are gonna absolutely dominate them, like it says in that interview.
It certainly is possible, but I just don't see the plan. I think it's PR.
Anyway, lets looks at the Sony exclusive lineup for PS3:
Rachet and Clank Future Untitled sequel
God of War 3
Team ICO game untitled
Now lets looks at the upcoming 360 exclusives lineup(with assumption that these games may/will also appear on PC):
Halo Bungie untitled sequel
Star Ocean 4
...and Left 4 Dead, we'll chalk up to moneyhatting and Valve being understaffed, or whatever you want.
I think that yes, certainly Sony has a small advantage there.
However, the overall library for those systems is significantly in the favor of the 360 in my, and most people's honest opinions.(at the very least it's a generally accepted myth)
And even though the PS3 has an edge in upcoming releases, doesn't mean we have seen everything from either company.
So, basically, how the hell is the PS3 destroying Microsoft in future games releases? I think that with multiplats, the future libraries are both really, really close, considering that the multiplats make up about 80 or 90 percent of all the games that come out anyway.
If this was World of Warcraft, we would call a transition from 360 to PS3 future libraries a sidegrade. We could call overall libraries a downgrade. In the world, we call it comparing apples and oranges.
The Sony exec basically said, "Oranges are gonna pwn apples even harder in 2009, because we have a lot tastier oranges coming down the line than ever before." except their Oranges used to be sour and mostly sucked until MGSOrange came out. It's cocky and arrogant, and as an apple and orange lover, it offends me.
