Sony, Sony, Sony... Why must you treat us so? It looks like the folks at Sony have stepped in it yet again. According to 1UP.com, last week at CES, Sony's Senior VP of Marketing, Peter Dille announced to the Sony faithful that the U.S. version of MotorStorm would be running in 1080p at a whopping 60fps on the PlayStation 3. Normally, that would be something to cheer about, except for the fact that Sony later recanted the statement and instead confirmed that MotorStorm would remain at 720p with a frame rate of 30fps for the U.S. release.
Gotta love that. I always find it interesting when a company throws out fake numbers in front of a huge audience and then later revises them, knowing that everyone is going to file a report on the initial announcement, but that most won't bother mentioning the correction later. While I'm not saying that this is what Sony did this time around, I do wonder about it. I mean, this is Sony's Senior VP of Marketing we're talking about, not the kid down the block who just picked up the latest issue of GamePro. You would think that someone out bother would be fact checking his speeches before he gives them.
As expected, here's the link for the 1UP.com article I'm talking about.
