Microsoft games head Peter Moore launched an unprecedented attack on Sony's PlayStation 3 business at CES in Las Vegas yesterday, saying the company lacks the talent or the company make-up to ever deliver a suitable online console service for consumers.
"It's going to take [Sony] a couple of years to get up to speed on this, and I'm not sure that they necessarily have the talent, or it's built into who they are as a company," said Moore regarding PlayStation 3's online feature set. "They're struggling with some of their hardware issues, and apparently they're going to deliver another five million in the next 90 days. But this business is about hardware, software and services now. And the consumer expects that."
