Atari Founder: Xbox 720 in “Superior Position” Because Sony’s Software Tools “Are Lame”

Many developers may have jumped on board with the PlayStation 4 but according to Atari founder Nolan Bushnell, Microsoft is poised to win with their next Xbox console.

He stated on GameTrailers’ Rollin’ with Nolan that, “I personally believe Microsoft is in a superior position, and the reason is Sony, whenever they change consoles, the software tools that they have are lame.

“A lot of times in the past they were in Japanese; not well documented and getting the software development community up to speed…they may have been able to do it in Japan, but the American software community just says ‘Oh boy, what a pain.’

“And a lot of people don’t realize how strong the software community is at making the hardware platform sing and dance.

“Microsoft, because of their strong software tools, will end up with much better products sooner [and] easier, in my estimation.

“And with that, I think will be an advantage. And also don’t forget, Microsoft actually has so much money to defend this. Plus, they have a good infrastructure with the [Xbox Live Arcade], with their online world.”

While we don’t necessarily disagree on any point – no, not even that Sony can be quite lame when it comes to software tools – it remains to be seen if Microsoft can really win the next generation with the Xbox 720. Especially if it actually needs a constant internet connection play games with.
