Here's an absolute mindblower for you. Sony exec Kaz Hirai has stunned the world by saying that the PlayStation 3's main premise is videogames! I thought it was just an expensive clock, but apparently there are these magic circular relics you can put inside the PS3 to create moving, interactive pictures. The future is here!

This is what the polygonal Sony Computer Entertainment boss has to say: 

The thing that I did when I took over last year was to boast the appeal of games themselves ... The main premise of the PS3 is video games. That's the absolutely most important thing that we cannot lose sight of.

The PS3 still has the stigma of being a machine without any games. This is a relatively unfair assessment, but it's true that Sony has been doing more promising than delivering. It is clear that Sony knows what needs to be done in order to make the PS3 a success, but it's still dragging its heels in an industry that moves at light speed.

Here's hoping that LittleBigPlanet is the beginning of a wave of quality titles.
