360 owners are ‘highly interested’ in the PS3 SuperSlim

Sony are currently seeing a “very high” level of interest from Xbox 360 owners, following the announcement of the latest PlayStation 3 model.

John Koller, hardware marketing executive at Sony, made the claim during an interview with Gamespot:

“We have seen a very high interest rate from Xbox 360 consumers wanting to purchase a second console.

We’ve held up Uncharted 3 as our flagship product over the last year and it’s a good opportunity for those types of consumers to come over and own a second console in their household.

We saw the same kind of thing happen in reverse during the PS2 years when a lot of PS2 consumers said they wanted to get an Xbox because of Halo and some other games. So we think the strategy works and it’s a good one.”

Let us know what you think of Koller’s comments below.

    Crazy didnt look at it that way but now that I think about it makes some sense. The only problem is that everyone is expecting a new console from both sony and microsoft at the next e3(or sooner who knows) and why with in a year there is gonna be a new console and that is what I think the problem with this line of thinking is.
