Microsoft Exec In Australia Sticks It To PS3

One of the head honchos over at Microsoft Australia has taken the time out of his day to express some doubts he had about whether the PlayStation 3 will launch in PAL territories during March. He also mentioned he was not very surprised when Sony announced the PAL delay of the console over the course of last week and little surprise at the consoles delay.

(It) doesn’t surprise me. And it further wouldn’t surprise me if this product wasn’t seen in March next year either,” said David McLean, regional director for Xbox Australia, speaking to Gamespot. “We have always been comfortable with our strategy for Christmas irrespective of Sony. We are completely unsurprised by this situation. We have actually been a little surprised at how surprised other people have been,” he added.

He made a final big at Sony by saying, “It would have been nice for people to really contrast what the Xbox 360 had to offer versus Sony this Christmas, so the vapourware aspect could go away.”

He seems like a very happy chap at the moment!
