Sony claims to have Shipped around 90 million PS2s, the actual number of PS2s sold worldwide is less. But even still, the number of PS2s sold worldwide towers over how many Xboxs were sold.

AS: What do you think of the competitors' machines? Will Sony continue to dominate the gaming market?

Satoru Iwata: It's questionable what the "horsepower" of the two other companies' consoles will be used for, such as fast calculations and high-definition resolution. Creating game software in high definition will require everything from the models to the background to be redone, and it will bloat up development costs. And yet, it has no use for people that aren't playing with a high-definition TV set. Game consoles are not an essential product in life, so we want to make ours as compact, thin, and as inexpensive as we can so that it won't be viewed with hostility by family members.

Taking a risk can also be disastrous. Remember beta vs VHS? And what about Sony's MD...

AS: Why doesn't the Xbox 360 adopt a next-generation disc format?

RB: The next-generation disc standard hasn't been solidified yet. Sony is taking a risk. We can decide after the standard has been created.

I guess micrsoft isn't ? What the hell do they mean by "We can decide after the standard has been created." Does that mean: "screw the early adopters of the 360, and let's put blu-ray or HD-dvd drives in the second batch".....great planning
