Microsoft's Bill Gates said in an interview with News.com (via IGN) this week, quote: "You know, Sony can make 80,000 bricks, and people would buy them."
This is Gates answer to the question "There still seems to be pretty strong critical acclaim and demand for PlayStation 3. How do you see that?"
The answer is pretty strange. I agree with Mr. Gates that the real console show-down between the Sony PS3 and the Microsoft Xbox 360 is the next holiday shopping season. This year, consumers have the same struggle to get a PS3 as they had last year to get a Xbox 360. But what have bricks todo with that?
I also think that the 1 year head start of Microsoft might be worthless and only 2007 will count. It will depend on who will have the best games and if the Sony Playstation Network is as good as Xbox Live, etc.
What about Nintendo and their Wii console? In my opinion Nintendo will get a market share that Microsoft and Sony can only dream about for their new consoles.
Oh, and by the way the brick in the photo above can be bought already. Not from Sony, but from Totally Funky.
