Sony: We have no regrets over PS3 launch pricing and late timing
Sony’s Jon Koller has revealed that he absolutely has no regrets over PS3 launch and high pricing. He went on to explain that the console has been profitable this generation and they are pleased with the way it has performed so far.
“You can’t always do everything at the same time. Given what we’ve had – and to do what we’ve done – I don’t think we have any regrets,” he said. “We have a very profitable consumer. If you’re a retailer or anyone else that sells PS3s, you’re more than pleased with the PS3′s performance.”
He mentioned that their competitors got a headstart of them due to the PS3 delay when asked about why PS3 wasn’t leading the market like PS1 and PS2 did.
“There’s no secret that we opened behind a high price point. And certainly others got a relatively nice head start on us because of that. That’s certainly been part of it,” he said.
“But we absolutely have no regrets. This has been a very good cycle for us, and I think if you ask any publisher they’d say the same thing. It’s been good, and we think it does portend good things for the future for PlayStation.”
