Hirai: Third Parties Were Initially “Confused” by the PS3

Sony Computer Entertainment President Kaz Hirai has spokemn about the lack of understanding of the PLAYSTATION 3 among third-parties.

Speaking to MCV, Hirai commented, “I think there was some confusion as to what PS3 was initially – some of the third parties didn’t understand and they wanted to scale back a little and see how things went before they really put in their resources.”

“But when I re-positioned the PS3 as a video games console at Tokyo Game Show I think everybody got that message loud and clear,” he said.

Recently, Hirai stated that he felt the PLAYSTATION 3 is not competing with Microsoft or Nintendo, but the industry as a whole.
