Grumpy old men

Well kiddies today was the 1st annuaul "Bitch Slap Microsoft Day". First to take a swing at Microsoft is Sony, in the lastest article of the Financial Times. Ken Kutaragi, president of Sony Computer Entertainment has slamed the Xbox by saying that it was dead in the water before it was even started. "Microsoft was finished before it even got started. They have no games," Mr Kutaragi also added. "Microsoft has put itself out of the game. Retailers in the US are already disappointed."

But wait there is more! Kutaragi went on running his mouth and said, that Microsoft’s exhibit was "disappointing": it lacked good software and the hardware was unimpressive. "Microsoft does not understand the entertainment business," he said. "The processing speed of their console is not fast enough and the graphics were rough." He also went on to say that no one needs to buy an Xbox and he believes PS and PS2 sales will continue to dominate the market while Nintendo will be there to pick up most of the scraps remaining, leaving Microsoft barelly nothing. (Thanks goes out to EIGamerzX from our message board for telling us about that one)

Next to join in on the festivities is Mr. Yamauchi president of Nintendo. In a recent interview that Nihon Keizai Shimbun had, Yamauchi takes his best cheap ass shot towards Microsoft.

Q: Game Cube is being launched at around the same time as Microsoft’s Xbox. Will that have any impact?

A: The ideas behind Xbox and Game Cube are fundamentally different. Xbox has a built-in hard drive and is being touted as an extension of a PC. Microsoft is going after performance only, and does not understand that the game is played with software. A Nintendo is ultimately a toy. It is the most advanced machine for playing games, and it is totally different from the Microsoft product. It is just like trying to compare a sumo wrestler and pro-wrestler; they play by totally different rules. We do not consider Microsoft to be our competitor.

Why can’t we all just get along?
