Speaking at the PlayStation Business Review in Tokyo yesterday, Sony boss Kaz Hirai said that PS3 was the only machine capable of delivering “true generation” games.

“As PlayStation 3 approaches the second anniversary of its release, the release of PS3 software titles with the true generation quality only available on PS3 is accelerating,” he said, pointing out MGS4 as an example.

The launch period hadn’t been easy, said Hirai, but fical 2008’s plan would see the console through.

“By refocusing the positioning of PS3 first and foremost as a gaming platform, we were able to bring an attractive title lineup and achieve a sufficient number of PS3 sales as expected in the fiscal year 2007 holiday season,” he added.
