Microsoft's Coporate Vice President, Peter Moore, made a swipe at Sony saying, "Tell me why you would buy a $600 PS3? People are ... going to buy an Xbox and they're going to buy a Wii ... for the price of one PS3. People will always gravitate toward a competitively priced product -- like what I believe Wii will be -- with innovative new designs and great intellectual property like Mario, Zelda and Metroid."

Sony, for their part, responded to Microsoft's barb in an interview with GamePro. "I think Peter Moore is exactly right," said Sony exec, Phil Harrison. "I think Nintendo will be the second system consumers purchase after PlayStation 3. I haven't had a chance to check out the Wii myself, but Nintendo has a great history of innovation and has always done great things for gaming and long may they do so."

Funny, funny stuff. :lol:

I think the appropriate translation for this marketing speak is, "They offer something we don't, but we really wish we thought of first. Now it is too late so we will tout our system as better and Nintendo as going after a 'different market' but it is hard to contain the envy. At least we can boast that we are better than our competitor [SONY/Microsoft] and that people would buy the weird system before theirs."

So let me get this straight, Sony and Microsoft are in a backhanded way telling me to get a Nintendo system?
