Sony responds to Activision

So EA as of late has stopped looking so evil and have redeemed themselves
in many gamers eyes, taking risks and launching new IP's like deadspace
and Brutal Legend. Activision however seems intent on picking up the reins
on being the industry jackass.

They recently took a shot at the PS3 and to make a long story short said
that they may stop supporting it in the coming years because they perceive
it as being hard to develop for, and oh yeah drop the price while you are at it.
This is not the first time Activision have criticized the PS3, coming right off of
E3 and voicing disappointment in not getting a price drop.

I spoke of this at length in the AntiAliasing thread but I pretty much
called activision hypocrites for pointing the finger of price at anyone
when they themselves rely so heavily on selling games bogged down with
accessories that hit the $100 mark and continue past it.

Well sony have responded to Activision and I've got to give them some
credit for being as civil as they were, given I would not expect a public
condemnation of the company like they may deserve in at least my eyes
it reads.

"PlayStation has tremendous momentum coming out of E3, and we are seeing positive growth with more than 350 titles slated to hit across all our platforms, including many anticipated games from our publishing partners," said Playstation spokesman Patrick Seybold. "We enjoy healthy business relationships with and greatly value our publishing partners and are working closely with them to deliver the best entertainment experience."
With games like God of War, Uncharted and Last Guardian on the horizon,
buying Guitar Hero 12.5:Rick Astley Edition is the last thing on my mind.

What's your 2cents on this
