Ken Kutaragi can’t seem to shut up about the PS3. Not that it would be strange for Ken to talk PS3 being the mastermind behind the Playstation brand and all, it’s more the things that he says that seem to puzzle gamers everywhere. Ken Kutaragi feels he needs to further confuse us and has now made some interesting comments about the Cell processor. Before we get into that here are some classic Ken Kutaragi quotes.
“Beating us for a short moment is like accidentally winning a point from a Shihan (Karate master), and Microsoft is still not a black belt. Just like with their operating systems, they might come out with something good around the third generation of their release.”
“I believe we made the most beautiful thing in the world. Nobody would criticize a renowned architect’s blueprint that the position of a gate is wrong. It’s the same as that.”
“Microsoft shoots for the moon. Sony shoots for the sun.”
"This time, Microsoft has stated clearly that it is going after PlayStation. However, they're going not after the PlayStation 3, but the PlayStation 2. They were looking at 2, and that's why Xbox 360 became like that."
“With the PS3, our intentions have been to create a machine with supercomputer calculation capabilities for home entertainment.”
PS3 is “for consumers to think to themselves ‘I will work more hours to buy one’. We want people to feel that they want it, irrespective of anything else.”
“The PS3 will instill discipline in our children and adults alike. Everyone will know discipline.”
“Microsoft is trailing behind us, but they are not a threat. They are good at improving [on products], but we will be advancing to the next level with revolutionary technology.”
“We’re not going to equip the PS3 with a HDD by default, because no matter how much capacity we put in it, it won’t be enough.”
Ken Kutaragi has now once again commented on how he views the launch of the PS3 and what the PS3 really is, though am starting to suspect that even Sony doesn’t know what the PS3 is about anymore. Speaking in an interview with Electronic Engineering Times Asia, Ken Kutaragi said of the PlayStation 3, “Though sold as a game console, what will in fact enter the home is a Cell-based computer.”
He continued, “The model image for the Cell-based network may be the Internet: servers around the world form one virtual 'computer,' and each PC accesses it. Application programs can no longer directly access the hardware; instead they will have to be written in high-level, object-oriented language. The Cell processor will completely change the concept of programming. I am sure that a technology revolution is about to occur, not only within Sony but throughout the digital consumer electronics industry.”
He has already been compared to Comical Ali (Former Iraqi Information Minister), and I can already hear it “there is no xbox”. But despite all the people criticizing him for his craziness I can’t help to like the guy more and more. I have always liked people with a “colorful personality”, and Ken seems to have nicked the whole f*****g rainbow.

I've seen the stats of both systems and ps3 is not a hundred bucks better than xbox 360. They have just fooled you into thinking that paying for there 7 years of research on the cell is getting you some kind of super computer. I've only a playstation, a playstation 2 but I'm not going to bother with the garbage that is ps3.
10 - PS3=Crap
Unregistered - Mike 08.14.2005 02:43
Even if the PS3 is a little bit more powerful than the 360, where are all of their good games?? Do they have Gears of War, PGR3, Huxly, Halo3, Oblivion, DOA4, or any of the other great games coming out for the 360? I haven't seen one good game coming up for the PS3! Killzone 2 or 3, or whatever the hell they are gonna call it, is gonna suck as much as the first game! The preview of Killzone was CG anyways!! Not even what it will even look like! Furthermore, do I have to mention PS3 will always be second to the 360s live capabilities?
The 360 console even looks better overall! I mean, who want a Foreman grill sitting by their TV? The 360 controler will be the most comfortable controller ever, unlike the PS3s which looks like they left it up to a bunch of monkeys to design (can you say Bannana Phone!)
All in all, you don't judge which console is better on just the graphics alone! It is mostly about the games and gameplay! The 360 may be a teeny bit underpowered compared to the PS3, but its games will show everyone that the 360 is the system to own!
Lastly, I am not wasting a cent on any Sony peice of crap this generation! It is the Xbox 360 and Nintendo Revolution for me! At least Microsoft and Nintendo arent forgetting the most important part of consoles! The GAMES! Do I really want a supercomputer that can go on the internet and grill burgers? No! I want to play games!
Sorry PS3 fanboys! I will never stupe so low and let my self get brainwashed by Sony into buying another peice of worthless crap! If you are smart, you will stop listening to Kutaragi's lies and see that 360 will be the best gaming console this gen. (I swear that guy is retarded anyways....)
Let the flaming begin...

First of all dissin the PS3 like that is fucked up. Yes the 360 would be a great system, and yes the revolution would offer a unquie gameplay, but never forget why the PS3 has always been on top- Sony learns from their mistakes, and they are far more popular and experience in their work of entertainment. So if you a fan and are satistfy with a console, then stay a fan, but don't hate the player (in this case Sony,MS,& Nin.) hate the game (like Mario,Killzone,Fonzamoto Sport), or what ever the fuck that it is that u hate. I on the other hand am going for all the next gens, just for there feel of gamplay, and no am not rich for all y'all cheap bastdars- cough ~Nintendo~.

Well we've got 360 dev kits and Quake IV looks like it's running on an underpowered PC and MSR sslows down with traffic and corners.
These are facts. The pad is ace, though. There are no games yet that warrent a purchase. Cameo could be on any system.
The PS3 will be awesome about three years into its life because it will take that long for people to learn how to code for it. Pixel shading technology will dump on the 360's ancient polygons. This bit is opinion, but based on knowledge.
I want Ken as my Uncle.

i think xbox fans are just putting on a good show as if they are acting likes its good.
i played xbox 360 and boy it does not feel next generation, its just like an xbox 1 or ps2 with a little bit more horsepower.
another tiny little fact is, microsoft have lost billions on their big black box, and i think im correct in thinking that when you loose money in your product, the product is a failure???
and can someone tell me what exactly is new from xbox 360? i mean come on is written clear, xbox 360 is all ready 'old'.
ps3 has amazing graphics, blu ray which is gonna become standard (look at ps2 with dvd). lol and who saw that article where xbox 360 is following in sega dreamcast (which i remember did very wel lol).
the bottom line is that xbox is all ready looking like nothing new, its not like the graphics are going to make a difference because its not powerful enough to calculate all these real physics unlike ps3.
70% of gaming market is sony, i need an xbox fan to tell me what they are going to get out of xbox 360.

Unregistered - TrueGamer 02.27.2006 19:00
Xbox360, PS3, Revolution, PC, Phantom, and whatever else to be released in the pipeline are all just the canvas for the programer to paint with. The games will make the difference between the systems, not the systems themselves. So if a game looks "super l33t pwnz0rz" it's not because it's on a better system it's because the programmer spent more time with the code for that platform. Take a look back on the dreamcast, the 1st 128but system. It's flaw was its premature release and that killed it. But the games always looked good from Sonic Team and Capcom and the like. Considering even after it's death games were still being made for the system abeit limited quanities Ikiruga)and those still looked good. Ninja Gaiden on Xbox looked amazing, MGS3 looked amazing. The best games always come out near the death of a system. Programmers finally learned the code and make games look it best for that hardware. Problem is that the market has already shifted to the "next gen." The new Systems comming out are still 128 bits. Never have you seen a marketing scheme like they days of old Sega and Nintendo. "8bit! 16bit! 32bit! 64bit! 128bit!" The three gaming powers that be can't market that angle because we haven't made a transition from the 128 platform. So my point is..the whole "xbox360 or PS3 sucks argument" is a moot point because we should be focusing on the developers and their efforts to make really good games.

THEY BOTH SUCK!!!
the 360 isn't far enough in the future to be a real next-gen. as far as i can tell, same with the ps3. they are both the exact same as their predecesors but with more power. neither are bringing anything new to the market. at all. people are already realizing the xbox 360 is the same thing they've been playing for years and the ps3 will be the same. gaming will die out if they keep this up.
if you can argue, then you're a fanboy that can't see what's really going on here.

I've heard both say funny things.
All my friends who jumped into xbox360 felt duped, suckered, and regret getting this console. Only hard-core sports fan are happy with it, means 3 or 4 peeps out of a dozen or so. Fact is YOU all bought a rushed out console. There was nothing wrong with the xbox. They just killed it to get your money
Thanks for being guenie pigs, that is why I'll wait for PS3, by the time it comes out lot of games will be ready instead of being RUSHED.
Xbox was sweet!!!! But Microsux messed up BIG TIME with the xbox360 brand. I have never heard so many disses of 360 by GASP, xbox fans. I've been too let down with it SO, next gen I'm ditching 360 and Championing for PS3.
Why you ask? SIMPLE! Stronger support for PS3 from N. American and European developers. More MMO games for PS3. Support of 360 from Japenese developers is weak. So if your stuck with 360 only, then you will have to rely games from Pc.
Developers who never made games for playstation brand are now supporting PS3, plus xbox live aint the only kid on the block,( peeps who worked on LIVE have jumped onto Sony's live service.
Last but not least , how many will spend an extra $200 to $300 for HD-DVD players thus making xbox360 cost $6oo to $700, FOOLISH!!! Remember laser diss, mini disk, betamax and useless paperweights. That also be HD-DVD too. Wanna bet.
Sure, Sony screwd up too with Ps2 HDD. At least they got it next round. Xbox360 failure in JAPAN, cause when xbox was new and mysterious from well known Microsoft people jumped in. Now everyone learned their lesson. That's why PS3 will rule. Sorry Microsux, you just lost another loyal fan!

haha. i read how the 360 is better. you need to constantly update to play only a handful of xbox games(like barbie)and it has a friggin dvd-rom drive. the hard drive looks like a friggin dongle, and to play hd-dvd you need to purchase an external drive unit and plug it into the usb 2.0 port. genesis anyone? i remember just exactly how the 32x and cd failed, to much additional stuff to purchase and add on, and it really made the system bulky. i agree that the 360 is xbox 1.5, but it's just like every other new microsoft program. vista - xp 1.5, 360 - xbox 1.5, and a lot other projects that always end up like crap because parts of the code are protected from the programmers whose job's to make it better. microsoft will continue to release crappy half-ass products that everyone buys, but it just isn't the best solution. i'm not an oss enthusiast, and i sure am not a microsoft enthusiast. the playstation 3(yet expensive) will be the most revolutionary piece of equipment we ever buy. alienware wishes they could be that powerful with their alx 'puter line. it just sucks that microsoft didn't buy the intellectual property for the xbox hardware, 'cuz right now i'd be playing all of my xbox games on hardware emulation, cheap trick but it gets the job done, unlike software emulation. but you do have to give kudos to apple 'puter, they figured out a way to port powerpc apps to an intel based processor. microsoft only wishes they could port intel based apps to the powerpc architecture. sega ended up a failure, and microsoft carried on their failure tradition(anyone realize how similar the dreamcast is to the xbox? dc used a cd based format, and the 360 is using dvd's, just a matter of time until sony uses the best optical storage disk to rule them all. in the next five years we'll be carrying disks that hold more info than these bulky lacie drives. later.

Unregistered - Matt 07.15.2006 11:05
Just what are you guys talking about regarding nintendo. If you cared to check stocks and profits, along with how much Sony computer entertainment and microsoft game studios is worth, you'll notice that Nintendo comes out on top. Just remember, despite the xbox 360 being a very good machine, technically, just like the ps3, people didn't stop and look twice at what sony and microsoft had on offer at e3, they all headed straight for Nintendo.
Anyone who thinks nintendo is dead is sooo totally wrong, and should get a reality check. And whilst you're at it, check which console is top of the games market WORLDWIDE - the DS lite, that's right, NINTENDO's DS lite. It has outsold the psp twice over if you check the current sales figures.
In conclusion, yes, ps3 and 360 are good machines. But they're not games consoles, and they're far from being anything new. Nintendo is the consumers choice, not the marketing department's.

Half of the people speaking on here are fanboys.
Look at it this way: Ken can brag all he wants about technology. People can go on and on about how the PS3 has Blu-Ray and the Xbox360 needs an external terminal to play HD-DVD and this that and the other.
In the end? What's gonna sell the console? The fact that it's got Blu-Ray? If you buy a console based solely on the fact that it's got Blu-Ray, you're gonna be sharply disappointed. It'll be the games that Blu-Ray plays. THE GAMES. Whenever Kutaragi wants to believe it or not, people are going to be buying the PS3 because it's a game system.
So what's that mean? Whatever else the PS3 does is gonna come in second. It's got Blu-Ray, that's great. Guess what? You're paying $200 more for that capability than what you'd be paying for what the Xbox360 can do. TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS. That's half the cost of the fully-loaded 360 system. You're going to be paying $500 for a bare-bones PS3, $600 for a fully-loaded one.
On top of that, the PS3's graphics aren't much better than the 360's if you've looked at them. The hard drive is bigger granted, and I much support that decision. 20 gigs on the 360's is pretty small. But if I buy an extra hard drive along with my fully-loaded 360, I've STILL saved $100 off of what the fully-loaded PS3 is gonna be.
But back to what matters: games. Fanboys can say this or that on the systems if they want, but talk is cheap. Games make all the big talking that Kutaragi does, and all the naysaying that 360 haters do, equate to NOTHING. You can have all the technology in the world, but without games to back it up, you've got nothing. You can have the best car in the world, but without arms and legs, you still can't drive it. Same with the PS3. I see a few stand-alone titles that really look cool, like Heavenly Sword and Lair, but a lot of the titles they're releasing are multi-platform games. I don't doubt that there will be incredible games to come, like Devil May Cry 4 and the FFXIIIs, but for now, I'm not sold on the titles I see, because not a whole lot have been announced.
You can all say what you want about how a system's going to do, but you can sit here and argue over who's going to win the next Super Bowl with absolutely no frickin' clue as to how it's gonna go because it ain't here yet. Future is yet to come. Argue about the present, but don't sit here and spit in each other's faces about what's gonna happen when you don't know.
All I know right now is that Kutaragi's talking a lot of crap and he's really offputting me with what he's saying. Talking about how the PS3 isn't a game machine and about how Sony's gonna take over the world (<---hyperbole) is just really making me wanna buy the console less and less. I have my reservations, but we'll see how everything goes once it's launched. Until then, stop saying the 360 sucks. It's got a strong line-up ahead of it, whereas the PS3 does not.
But that, as well, is opinion I suppose.
