Sony Kaz Hirai said according to CNET in an interview with the Official Playstation Magazine that the Sony PS3 is hard to develop for on purpose.
The Sony restructuring is not going to be enough to turn Sony around. They need a major brainwash to adjust to the new world order: Nintendo rules. Microsoft knows what to do with the Xbox 360. Sony PS3 sales suck.

The whole incremental release of even better games worked great on the PS2 as Microsoft just started late with the Xbox and there was no Wii. Basically if you wanted the cutting edge you had to have the PS2.
Today the Xbox 360 delivers graphically intense games well enough and the PS3 cannot leverage its hardware advantage one bit to make the real difference. For casual games it is too expensive and not as innovative as the Wii.

In such a situation to talk about stifling game developers on purpose is ludicrous. If I would be a game developer for the PS3 I would be really pissed off by such a statement. Any other company tries to please its developer community and tries to support them as best as they can to get the best software. Apparently Sony is not buying into this concept and believes that this is the way to keep the PS3 interesting for the 10 year projected lifespan. If Sony is not doing something big this year, the PS3 might not even see its 3rd birthday.

I still hope for the best and for Stringer to pull the right strings. My PS3 is starting to catch dust.
