Sony: PS3 is already an "elite" experience

Microsoft has officially confirmed a new Xbox 360 is in the making and will be released in April. Sony has had its say on the new console with a HDMI port and 120GB hard drive.

Peter Dille, senior vice president of marketing for Sony Computer Entertainment America, released the following: "We think every PlayStation 3 owner should have an 'elite' experience, which is why we include an internal hard drive and HDMI output in every PS3 we sell, along with the 50GB of storage capacity on a high definition Blu-ray disc.

Above: Now if onlyit actually came withan HDMI cable...

"Sony has been the strongest advocate of high definition as the future of next-generation gaming. This requires high-definition components, including HDMI output, and large storage devices to deliver and store all that rich and vivid HD content. Microsoft's announcement today not only legitimizes Sony's PS3 strategy, it moves us closer to adopting universal standards in the area of high definition gaming that will benefit game developers and ultimately the end user."

Do we detect a bit of the old "told you so" in there...?
