Mattrick: Sony and Nintendo have been on vacation

Don MattrickMicrosoft’s senior vice president Don Mattrick obviously feels pretty strongly about his company’s products, and he isn’t afraid to tell the press about it. What’s more is that while talking to MCV, he not only claimed "victory" at this year’s E3 Media & Business Summit, but was also quick to take a few jabs at the competition.

"I think we got more than 12 months’ work done, and others went on an extended vacation. Hopefully they got some good vacation photos, because they sure weren’t showing up at work.

Of course I’m going to be biased, but so far what I’ve heard is that Sony and Nintendo have disappointed. And Microsoft has been leading, innovating and driving a very comprehensive global program.

We’re building momentum and we’re on a scale that no other consumer electronics company or entertainment company has been able to achieve in nine years. It’s been a very good show and I’m very pleased with what we’ve been able to accomplish. I think there was a lot of good work, a lot of innovation and a lot of news from us."

So what do the GN readers think? Have Sony and Nintendo been on "an extended vacation?" From where I’m sitting, I see Sony just starting to get back to where they need to be in this race, and Nintendo almost completely losing touch with everything that the real gaming community cares about. I guess that means that Microsoft’s doing alright by me.
