Sony think so... Phil Harrison, president of Sony Computer Entertainment's Worldwide Studios, has stated that the PlayStation 3 will kill the PC. "We believe that the PS3 will be the place where our users play games, watch films, browse the Web, and use other [home] computer functions," said Harrison. "The PlayStation 3 is a computer. We do not need the PC." Given that there were similar claims for the PS2 and movie playback was pretty dreadful, we can take these comments with a pinch of salt. It's a clear dig at Microsoft and its promotion of cross platform Xbox 360/PC functionality. Meanwhile Harrison is refuting claims that the new PS3 controller is copied from Nintendo. "We have already worked on it a long time, and Nintendo almost certainly has done likewise with something similar," Harrison said. "It is perfectly naturally for two companies to work on [nearly] identical devices. It's like that with technology. [The Dual Shock controller is the] de facto-industry standard for video games...We define the standard for the man-machine interface for playing games." Apparently the standard is giving you hand ache after half an hour. It's been a good day for goofiness from the rival console makers as Peter Moore's comments will attest.
