ソニーとMSの違い

 New York Timesの5月17日付け記事(閲覧には無料登録が必要)に誤りがないとすれば、以下の部分は非常に興味深い:
While every Xbox 360 title must be developed in high definition, Sony officials are playing down that aspect of the new PlayStation. "Blu-ray technology guarantees the highest graphic quality," said Jack Tretton, executive vice president of Sony Computer Entertainment America. "HD is not the be-all and end-all," Mr. Tretton said, noting that the depth of game play could be more important.

Microsoft executives have decided to end internal development of games for the current Xbox this year, but Sony will continue to create titles for the PlayStation 2.

"We'd be crazy to abandon them," said Mr. Tretton, speaking of PlayStation 2 owners. The company may decide to create titles solely for PlayStation 2 even after the introduction of the new system, he said.
 つまり、MSは現行のXboxが失敗だったことを認めて既存ソフトタイトルは全て捨てると決めたのに対して、ソニーはPS2タイトルへの互換性を保証することでソフトメーカーの保護政策をとるというスタンスらしい。これは結構明暗が分かれるというか、業界内でもエンドユーザー間でも、それぞれに波紋を呼びそうな話だ。

 もっとも、この記事内容が現時点で全て正確だとしても、明日にはどちらかの社(両方か?)が方針を変更している可能性もあるので、しばらくは何とも言えないのだけどね…。
