Famitsu boss: PS3's Japanese problems are being resolved

Famitsu boss Hirokazu Hamamura has told MCV that he believes issues strangling PS3's development in Japan are being eradicated, although a price cut is needed this year to boost sales.

“The PS3’s penetration pace has been slower than I expected," he said. "Its higher price tag and software development difficulties have been major causes for stalling the growth of its installed base. However, these problems are gradually being resolved.

“If the console gets another price cut by the year-end shopping season, I believe its penetration pace will become accelerated.”

A price cut in Europe would be great as well, Sony. Sony?
