Sony Oz boss speaks out

PS3 in different league, he says.

SCE Australia boss Michael Ephraim has responded to criticisms of the PS3's high price point by stating that the console is in a different league to its rivals.

"We think PS3 is not a product to be compared with Wii, it is a completely different product. This is a digital hub, that is a games console," he told news site The Age.

"To maximise Xbox 360, you need Media Centre, you need a PC. And now if you want to play high-definition movies (and we can argue which format is going to win) you have to spend another AUD $249 [EUR 150]. Xbox is significantly dearer than PS3 for what it can do straight out of the box."
