SCEE president David Reeves has told MCV that substandard hardware will do nothing to grow the games market.
“We also grow the market through new products – some work, some don’t, that’s just the Sony way,” he said.
“And on that point, another thing we have committed to for supporting market growth is putting out quality hardware – you don’t grow the market by putting out shoddy machines.
“So we try to make sure that PS3s have a failure rate of just two to three per cent, which is very low by industry standards.”
Take that, Microsoft.
