In response to Sony’s earlier claim that Microsoft and Nintendo continue are just “peddling add-ons,” 360 product manager Aaron Greenberg has told Kotaku at CES 09 that MS would “absolutely not want to trade places” with its rival.
“First, I would say we absolutely would not want to trade places with Sony,” said Greenberg. “We feel like being half the price of the PS3 served us quite well this holiday.”
“The fact that we’re doing this at half the price of their platform, we feel confident that we’re delivering great value,” he added.
“I believe that we deliver more value for games and entertainment than any other platform on the market.”
As for the price comparison table Sony offered in the release, Greenberg offered: “I don’t think people take comparison grids into retail stores.”
“I would rather talk about why you should buy our console than why you shouldn’t buy the competitor’s system.”
