Hideo Kojima’s Analogy
At neogaf.com, you can see how he relates to the Wii, the PS3, and the XBox 360, and that they don’t intertwine or overlap each other.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Now, the PlayStation 3 is like a movie theater for people who want to see this movie on the big screen with THX and 5.1 audio, even if they have to pay a high price. The Xbox 360 is DVD. Basically, you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know what movie you want to see, so you go to the store and see if you can pick up a good one. The Wii is like a TV for when youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re home and you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know what you want to watch but you [want to] have that variety.Ã¢â‚¬?Ã¢â‚¬Å“So I think the three platforms are really distinctive and they mostly donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t overlap each other Ã¢â‚¬â€ people who love movies watch TV all the time. We have to be very quick [with what weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re doing in terms of games]. We canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t wait long to turn on TV, and also, the programs have to be in all varieties so everyone is satisifed, as opposed to the movie theaters, where everything has to be high spec. People want high emotions. You want to be touched watching it on the big screen. For DVD, or the 360, you need to have a lot of variety so when people stop by theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll pick up your product. Maybe in the future, youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll see three DVDs for $10.Ã¢â‚¬?
