Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot and EA Games president Frank Gibeau have spoken of the “exceptional” price cut Sony brought in for the Playstation 3.
“It’s exceptional news, actually. I think the machine is a great machine, with the Blu-ray. I’m happy that they were able to move to that [price point], particularly in the UK,” said Guillemot.
As for Gibeau: “I think it’s awesome. It’s an old line, but it still rings true for us: ‘We make the ammunition for the hardware wars’. So the lowest priced hardware possible is a good thing for us. We want to see as big and broad a base as possible, and the Sony hardware is a good piece of equipment.”
Sony announced the price cut on Tuesday at it’s GamesCom presser. It now retails for £249/$299/€299.

Speaking with Gamespot, EA Games president Frank Gibeau set the course for EA’s Wii games to come, and warned against the choppy waters ports tend to bring.
“These need to be stand-alone, high-quality games that are profitable,” he said. “Our operating assumption is that ports on the Nintendo Wii don’t sell very well, and we have to design from the ground up–design from the controller out, frankly–an experience that can happen in an IP universe that might be someplace else or might be on multiple platforms, but it really needs to cater to Wii players and how Wii players play games.”
“We think that there’s opportunity to bring custom designs like Dead Space Extraction, Spore, and Need for Speed Nitro, which are all in their own unique windows, they’re not shipping with other games on other platforms. They all have their own unique designs, their own looks. They’re also targeting different customers.”
He used Need for Speed as an example, noting that Xbox, PS3, and PC versions of the game are out to press high-end racing fans’ fun buttons, while the Wii version is more of an arcade racer.
