- Hirai feels the delay of Home will ultimately have a positive effect, as he is not happy with the current working version. He wants to make sure it's the best Sony can deliver to its fans and that's always nice, whether it's truth or spin.
- As for backwards compatibility, Hirai and company decided it was more important to get PS3 owners to buy PS3 games and Blu-ray movies and play those on the system, in addtion to PSN content. Removing the backwards compatibility and lowering the price is just one strategy employed to get the PS3 in more homes, he says.
- As for Monster Hunter going to the Wii, Hirai passed the announcement off saying that game companies get to choose what platform to slap their titles on. The franchise helped the PS2 and PSP, but there's another Monster Hunter title due on the PSP in March of '08, so it's not as big of a deal. Or something.
