Aaron Greenberg is such a quote box when it comes to saying abrasive flamebait that I have decided to come up with a new tag called Aaron Greenberg Says. Today, Aaron Greenberg says many things, really taking off the gloves and laying into Sony, as he likes to do so much.
"You can't underestimate that we're half the price of the PS3 at a time when consumers were looking for great value," beams Greenberg. "The PS3 was down in February two percent even with the launch of Killzone 2 -- that's months of year-over-year declines. Xbox continues to head north while the PS3 is heading south. We're gaining share.
"But what we hear from our partners is that it's not just PS3, it's also PS2 down 62 percent year over year. With that business declining, and with the PS3 business declining, it's been described to me as hemorrhaging at retail right now, and it just keeps getting worse. What we're finding in our research is that a large portion of the volume we're driving with Xbox 360 purchasers is actually PS2 owners choosing Xbox for the next generation. We're switching people from the PlayStation brand over to the Xbox brand."
Greenberg also says that if GTA: The Lost & Damned had sold at retail, it would have outsold Killzone 2, and boasted that Xbox 360 titles currently have over 130 titles rated over 80 on Metacritic, while rival platforms don't even have 100. Aaron Greenberg says so many things. He's a gift from God to blogging comment boxes everywhere.
