We've heard Hideo Kojima compare the PS3 to a movie theater while the 360 is like watching a movie on DVD and the Wii is like watching the movie on a TV channel. We've also heard him liken the PS3 to an expensive steak dinner at a formal restaurant, the Xbox 360 to a steak dinner at a casual restaurant, and the Wii to a steak dinner that you cook at home. Now, Jack Tretton has stolen Kojima's analogy bit and tried his hand at making one of his own*.

I think the PS3 is the Surf 'n Turf. You want the lobster and steak and you're going to give yourself the treat of getting the best thing on the menu. The PS2 is your favorite burger restaurant -- you go there for comfort food and it's just always good and is a good value.

[As for the other two consoles], one [Wii] is a lollipop, and I'm too old for lollipops. The other one [Xbox 360] I get sick from once in a while because the cook isn't always reliable.

Wow Jack! You make one Kojima-esque analogy, and you already shoot yourself up to being on his level! I applaud you. I especially love the bit about 360 being an unreliable cook. Not quite up to Kojima's previous analogies, but you're definitely getting there. Keep up the good work.

Man, all this talk of food makes me hungry for some steak smothered in PS3 Steak Sauce.

No one at Sony should make comments about be reliable. How many PS2 broke? Did a law suit to get the problem fixed? I am not a MS fanboy nor will I call it a "gaystation".

Actually i am getting tired of all the execs in the big game companies ripping on each other. It is starting to look like a political race.
 
Yeah I agree, it is getting foolish. These comments never influence my buying practices, only lessen my respect for the people at the other end of the spectrum.

Ironic he used the analogy of Surf 'n' Turf though. Overly expensive menu with little taste or spice, yeah that sounds about right for the PS3 right now. Get some taste (games) and some spice (games again) and maybe we'll sit down and have a meal with you Jack.
 
I well and truly miss the days of old SEGA vs Nintendo Genesis vs SNES
Not just because of the quality and creativity of the games for their time, but just the entire atmosphere of it all.

I honestly can never see myself rejoining the console wars despite how much of my childhood was dedicated to them.

I also agree it is really stupid to attack a company for something your own company is guilty of many times over. Any one remember how many original Playstations had faulty lasers, and needed to be fixed or tipped upside down during play?
