Elite "legitimises" PS3 strategy

Sony US responds to new X360.

SCEA has responded to the unveiling of Xbox 360 Elite, with a senior executive claiming the announcement marks a move towards the universal adoption of high definition standards.

In a statement, vice president of marketing Peter Dille commented, "We think every PlayStation 3 owner should have an "elite" experience, which is why we include an internal hard drive and HDMI output in every PS3 we sell, along with the 50GB of storage capacity on a high definition Blu-ray disc.

"Microsoft's announcement today not only legitimises Sony's PS3 strategy, it moves us closer to adopting universal standards in the area of high definition gaming that will benefit game developers and ultimately the end user."
