Sony: PS3 Still For 'Early Adopters'

The PlayStation 3 was released in North America in November 2006. That's over two years ago. So we're well out of the "early adopter" phase, right? Not according to Sony we're not!

In an interview with Gamasutra, Sony's John Koller has said:

The PSP, from a handheld perspective, it's more of a 13-17 year old [demographic] , multi-ethnic, a bit lower-income as well. The PS3 is still in its early adopter phase, tech-oriented consumer... they're interested in the multi-functionality of the system.

Alternate headline: Sony says PSP for "Ghetto Kids".

    lol everyone has an opinion on this, but both Sony and Microsoft would have had plans for the (around) 10 year life of each console. The first few years of this would have been marked "early adopters" for both. ps3 and 360 sold around the same in the first two years but its only the last year for 360 that has seen it move past that early adopetr phase. it seems perfectly reasonable that the one-year-behind ps3 is still at the end of its "early adopter" phase. so far the ps3 has sold roughly with the 360. Sony's failure this generation so far is that it allowed the 360 to catch up with it. Anyone who claims that the ps3 has failed compared to the 360 either has a time machine or cant figure out that 3 years means more sales than 2. It may fail, but it hasnt happened yet.

    I hope Ps3 doesn't fail. Can you imagine a microsoft monopoly?
    the horror...

    Imagine? Ever heard of Microsoft Windows?

    I own both consoles. Ps3 farrr better than 360, but 360 has exclusive titles that I really enjoy, so you need both!!!
