Even though he wasn't speaking for the entire Sony organization, did we just hear Sony Australia & New Zealand general manager Nic Foster say that the competing Nintendo Wii is more fun than Sony's PS3 gaming console? Well, just about:

"Wii is a core gaming device. It's a more fun, intuitive sort of product to pick up, where the PS3 is a broader entertainment solution; so you can have your fun, enjoyable gaming ... but then you have a whole suite of other applications ... such as Blu-ray media playback, the ability to access your music, access your photos and the interoperability with the PlayStation Portable."


Oops. What sounds like more fun, a "core gaming device" that's "intuitive" and costs $250, or a "broader entertainment solution" that'll clip you for $600? You decide.
