Allard Talks with Financial Times

FGN today posted a series of quotes by J. Allard talking to London’s Financial Times about Microsoft’s chances against PS2. Financial Times quoted Allard on delays, online play, Trojan Horse theory and Microsoft’s rep:

"We want to make sure we have sufficient quantity of hardware at launch in all territories. Everyone was disappointed by the shortages and delays in delivery of PS2, so in Europe, where there are so many different languages and complexities, we want have time to make sure we have an exceptional launch."

"Our objective is not to have everything in one box. We didn’t want the console to be a compromise. We didn’t want to be the mini-van of videogames by trying to be all things to all people - we wanted to be the Ferrari of video games."

"It’s not fair to burden gamers with a poor experience of the Internet, so we are going to be patient with broadband. We don’t want to compromise the quality of gaming whether on or offline, so it’s worth waiting."

The primary brand will be Xbox, but we did do some research on Microsoft at the height of the antitrust thing and we were really surprised by the results. People said they thought we stood for seriousness, commitment and quality. We expected much, much worse."
