PSN Will Beat XBLA Says Richard Lemarchand (Who?) by Anthony Barlow

It’s the new console war. The downloadable games war and at the minute, content wise at least, Microsoft are winning due to the sheer quantity of games available. According to Richard Lemarchand from Naughty Dog (oh that’s who he is) that’s about to change. He believes that PSN will have an edge that XBL won’t.

I think there’s going to be other things coming down the pipe that’s going to give PSN as a whole a competitive edge… What I will say is as a games designer I’m very excited about net connectivity. I really like how Sony is thinking a little bit outside the box in terms of gamers as modern media consumers. With things like LittleBigPlanet looking towards consumer-generated content and with games like flOw and flOwer — which are art games — Sony is really looking to expand games as culture in the same way that pop music, literature and fine art are culture.

I agree but then again he sorta has to say that Sony owns Naughty Dog.
