Mattrick: 360 will outperform PS3
Written Thursday, July 24, 2008 By Joe Robinson
In an interview with Eurogamer, Don Mattrick (Head of Microsoft's 'Xbox' division) confidently stated that the Xbox 360 will soon out perform the Playstation 3 in terms of software.
"I did the math, I did the math a different way, I did the math...there was no equation that I came to where I got a different answer, and I went, 'You know what? This is getting boring,'" he said. "Like, instead of everyone standing on the sidelines trying to hedge, I'm just going to say it."
This follows on from his bold claim during Microsoft's E3 keynote speech that the Xbox 360 will defeat the PS3 worldwide in this generation of consoles
Sony have stated that some of their best titles have come later on in their previous console's lifespan, and so could still threaten to dominate in the coming years. But Mattrick believes that even in those years, the 360 will be better then the PS3.
"I think we're going to outperform them."
