Sony boss, Howard Stringer, yesterday announced that the PS3 will have 937,000 games by March 2008. Okay, he really didn't say that. What he did say is that the PS3 will have 380 new games by March 2008: 200 packaged retail games and 180 Playstation Network games.
I used hyperbole to make a point. You see, Sony has been under fire lately because of their lack of any must-have titles. Now, they come out and say that they'll have 200 new retail games. It's a little overwhelming. 200 may as well be 937,000.
Sony is using the spitball approach, hoping that one or two of these 200 games will stick. What us gamers need to be hearing about is 10 great titles that are coming out, not 200 anonymous titles.
Granted, Mr. Stringer was talking to investors, who could really care less about AAA titles and just want to hear the numbers.
Nonetheless, this is a step in the right direction for the PS3. Of course, while Sony is pumping out games, so to are Nintendo and Microsoft.
