Sony Exec agrees with Microsoft Exec regarding Nintendo's Wii

In strange turn of events after E3 ended this week, Sony Computer Entertainment executive Phil Harrison agrees with Microsoft’s Corporate Vice President Peter Moore regarding Nintendo’s Wii. A few days ago Peter Moore was quoted saying that consumers could purchase a Microsoft XBOX 360 and a Nintendo Wii for the same price as a single PlayStation 3. According to GamePro, Harrison said console buyers should buy a Nintendo Wii in addition to a next generation system, whether it is the XBOX 360 or PlayStation 3. According to The Wire:

"I think Peter Moore is exactly right," Harrison said. "I think Nintendo will be the second system consumers purchase after PlayStation 3. I haven't had a chance to check out the Wii myself, but Nintendo has a great history of innovation and has always done great things for gaming and long may they do so."

If this is the case, several game publications anticipate the console war will only be between Sony and Microsoft in the high end while Nintendo sits back as the third wheel capturing the mainstream market with the cheaper Wii. Despite this, Nintendo could still very well end up with the number one selling console in its generation in the long run. The high cost of Sony's game console could leave it out of the hands of the average console gamer. Despite the high $500-600 price tag, Harrison is still defending the PlayStation 3’s value with the built in Blu-ray player. How Sony is going to market the feature is yet to be seen as Blu-ray has constantly been delayed.
