Sony Not Phased By Current 'Natal PR Barrage'



Sony's Rob Dyer has commented on the company's stance towards current Project Natal 'PR Barrage' claiming PlayStation Arc has what it needs to make it all go away:
“From Sony’s perspective, rather than go out and do a whole PR barrage to give everybody the ‘happy, happy, joy, joy’ news, we’re going to show up and have a line-up of products to show people rather than having a lot of great statements to say, ‘This is what’s going to happen.’"

“So whether it’s at GDC or DPS (Destination PlayStation), and definitely at E3, you’re going to see – and I’ve seen it from both first- and third-parties – some really awesome products to support this. And rather than us go there and pat ourselves on the back, and send out press releases talking about this, we’re going to be Missouri; it’s going to be ’show me.’ And that’s the deal.”
Dyer also stated there's plenty of support from third parties for PlayStation Arc:
“From a third-party perspective it’s easier to develop for, you can use the same code base that you currently use for PS3 or 360 or even the Wii in order to get a motion controller game out. You can’t do that with Natal."

“You have to have a completely separate code base and my feeling is that we’re going to have a lot more games, a lot more innovation – particularly with the camera and the precision – versus what you’ll have with Natal or the Wii.We can all sit around here and debate that… but the fact is I’m not having any trouble getting third-party support.”
