Is this the year the PS3 takes the top spot? Or is it next year? While the pundits gaze into their crystal balls, soon-to-retire Sony exec David Reeves thinks he's got the answer.
"I don't think it will be next year, but in three to five years it will become dominant on the market," Reeves told industry site GamesIndustry. "The legacy will be that people will see a tortoise and hare situation. In a way, in the end it will be a dead heat. People will say PS3 took a while to get going but it really caught up very quickly and confounded many of the critics from the first year."
So David Reeves thinks that the PS3 will be dominate in 2012 or 2014. Meaning? Meaning by Reeves most liberal estimate, it could take the PS3 almost eight years to become dominate in the market — leaving the console with a little over two years left in its proposed ten year life-span to rule the roost.
Shame because David Reeves is retiring tomorrow. He has been the gift that keeps on giving.
PS3 to be dominant in 3 - 5 years, says Reeves [GamesImdustry]
