Say what you will about his outbursts, Sony's Peter Dille is a man who wears his heart on his sleeve. Dude bleeds Sony. And as is often the case with passionate, outspoken types, as often as they're wrong about something, they're right about something else. Yesterday, Dille was so wrong about Final Fantasy XIII, but today (well, last week, it's from the same E3 interview), speaking about the PS3's global appeal, he's bang on the money:

Developers know they have to amortize that investment over a global marketplace and the best place to do that is on a PlayStation format. Because if you look at the global footprint, PlayStation 3 dominates in Japan where the 360 is really irrelevant. In Europe, the PlayStation 3 is already past the 360. And in the United States you have a dogfight...So back to the third-party community, they’re looking at what’s going on, they’re realigning their development resources to exploit PS3 and I think they understand that if they want to have a global return on their investment, PlayStation 3 is the only place they’re going to get it.

Man's got a point, a point that - as the PS3 begins to slowly, inevitably pull away from the 360 in Europe - will only get sharper!

This reminds me of the fickle arguments that used to go round the playground about which was better Amiga or ST, Megadrive or SNES.
Do you really care that much?

Karym wished he'd bought a 360 but opted for the Sony hype machine instead ;)

Megadrive wasn't nowhere near as shiny tho, I suppose it was shinier that the SNES but wasn't there a few shiny versions of the PC Engine going around?

Infact all the old machines were incredibly unshiny :(

Nothing can compete with the PS3's shinyness, nothing!!!

True, but it wasn't the same high gloss piano finish that the PSP and PS3 have, stunning shinyness.

Just had a thought Witchy do you sit your PS3 horizontally or vertically??
If you stand it up then it doesn't attract much dust pmsl, saying that though mine looks a bit dull at the minute. :banana:

It's under my tv mate laying flat, it's sitting next to my horribly unshiny Xbox360 and slightly shiny Wii.

Wife wants to put it in the kitchen as she thinks it's a sandwhich toaster.

Here now Karym.....

Have you felt the heat that pumps out the back of your PS3, mine is red hot!

It is nice and quiet though, not like those jet engines in the 360 :)

I'll be saving a fortune in the winter.

Kids : "Dad I'm cold"
Me : "**** off, I don't care!"
Kids : "Brrrrrrr.....shiver...."
Me : "Ok, put that fooking PS3 on and we'll all get a heat"
