SCEA’s director of hardware marketing John Kolelr has told Gamespot that the company’s arms are ‘wide open’ for Wii fans to climb aboard the PlayStation brand. Sony announced earlier this week that it has cut the recommended retail price of the PlayStation 3 to $249.
“The other rationale about having the price drop now is that our arms are wide open for Xbox 360 and Wii consumers to come aboard the platform.”
“We knew with the software lineup we have the time was right to say we’re open to all gamers, whether it’s a second console for the household or a new one on the family demographic side. Either is great for us, and with the software lineup we have coming, we think that 360 and Wii consumers will certainly be very interested with the new price point.”
