Gaming News: "Ass Face"
Posted: Wednesday January 21st, 2009 by

In a single interview with Playstation Magazine, Sony Computer Entertainment chairman and group CEO, Kazuo "Kaz" Hirai said that the XBox "lacks longevity", dismissed Nintendo as a competitor, and proclaimed the Playstation the "official" leader in the console gaming industry despite the numbers, install base, or sales.

Initially the comic had more text, but in the end I felt nothing more needed to be said. Kaz Hirai is an assface. He opens his mouth and crap falls out. (Pardon the imagery).

I expect big wigs to say and do stupid things. As a matter of fact a large part of my gaming news comics are based on the idea. But most of them, at one point or another, manage to redeeem themselves. If Kaz has ever said anything to rinse away his verbal diarrhea, I've never heard the flush. (Again, pardon the imagery.)

In the world of product consumption there are only a few ways to quantify success: units sold, profit generated and/or number of buyers. The Playstation 3 doesn't lead a single one of those categories, their non-competitor the Nintendo Wii does.

Now don't mistake my position here, I'm not anti playstation. I'd own one if I could afford it. But I'm quickly approaching the point of being unwilling to EVER buy one just because I refuse to support anything Kaz Hirai is associated with.

Note: I do have a version of panel where Kaz is wearing a pair of underwear on his head. It's just not as clear with them on that he's a complete and total assface.
