Sony CEO Howard Stringer has labelled Nintendo Wii nothing more than a “nice gaming device” – and an expensive one at that.

Speaking at the Allen & Co media conference in Sun Valley, Idaho last week, he said:

“I’ve played a Nintendo Wii. I don’t see it as a competitor. It’s more of an expensive niche game device. We’re selling a lot of PlayStation 3s now and it’s still the best way to buy a Blu-ray player.”

Thanks, Bloomberg.
