Reeves: Microsoft’s Gosen is incorrect over European console figures

By Patrick Garratt, Tuesday, 22 July 2008 14:40 GMT

Speaking to Eurogamer at E3 last week, SCEE head David Reeves said that his announcement at London’s PlayStation Day in May that PS3 had overtaken 360 in Europe was correct.

Microsoft’s David Gosen rubbished the figures after the event: the company was wrong, said the Sony exec.

“I think we’ve only made one – I would say – controversial announcement and that was to say that we have a higher installed base than Xbox 360 [in Europe] and we stand by that. We know what the figures are,” he said.

“But I think – and I keep repeating this – that the more important thing is the growth in the marketplace is just absolutely phenomenal.”
