President And CEO Of Sony ‘3DS Is A Babysitting Tool’

Jack Tretton, President and CEO of Sony, has made a harsh comment towards Nintendo recent gaming efforts, and commented that the new ‘3D-without-glasses’ handheld is a babysitting tool, and doesn’t regard the DS as competition. Heres one of the comments that Tretton made:

Our view of the ‘Game Boy experience’ is that it’s a great babysitting tool, something young kids do on airplanes, but no self-respecting twenty-something is going to be sitting on an airplane with one of those… He’s too old for that.

Continuing in this interview with Fortune Magazine, he talks about how this year is ‘Sony’s best year ever’. He says this despite the fact that there are 49.2 million PS3s sold worldwide, but obviously not as succesful as Nintendo’s Wii, boasting 86.3 million consoles sold. As well as Nintendo, Microsoft also got some bashing:

They’re starting to run out of steam now in terms of continuing to be relevant in 2011 and beyond… I mean, you’ve gotta be kidding me. Why would I buy a gaming system without a hard drive in it? How does this thing scale? Motion gaming is cute, but if I can only wave my arms six inches, how does this really feel like I’m doing true accurate motion gaming?

Currently, 3D gaming for the PS3 requires glasses, which in my opinion, excites me as much as watching paint dry!

Will Nintendo fight back?

    Ah obviously the best way to get your point over is by trolling. The only people i know who have a psp are too embarrassed to play it in public because they only have porn on there.

    I remember Sony making fun of the Wii’s motion controls…. A control system so bad that they copied it 4 years later.

    And of course, their last console, the PSP Go, was soooo successful…..

    NGP = Nintendo Gaming Preferred.

  3. Shame that Sony has to stoop so low, show’s they are feeling the pressure. Reggie and Iwata must be smiling now.
