However, they remain confident in their 2012 content offerings
According to Sony Europe boss, Wii U could be 'a potential risk' to business for PS3, but he added that 'it all comes down to content'.
In an interview with GamesIndustry.biz, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe boss Jim Ryan, described the Wii U as a "potential risk" to the PlayStation business.
However, he also noted that he's confident Sony has enough decent content lined up to keep PS3 owners satisfied.
According to him, IPs in development such as Beyond: Two Souls and The Last of Us in addition to “60 new titles coming to [Vita]” this year, will keep consumers focused on Sony’s offerings."It's obviously a potential risk but we feel really good about our content," said Ryan. "Obviously, it comes down to content. There are people who buy gadgets for the sake of the gadget, but that's pretty niche.
"We feel good about our line-up that we showed at E3. We're very excited about publishing it. We've got 30 million (hardware sales target) for this year, it's a big number but we've got the tools to go out and deliver that."
What do you think?"It becomes economically easier if you've got an installed base of 64 million," he said. "Making that financial commitment to this sort of thing is a lot easier than if you've got 6 million."
