In an interview with New York Times Shane said:
"The generation has a long way to go so it's way too early to declare a winner," he told the paper. "I remember a couple of weeks ago, a lot of people were predicting that the Patriots would win the Super Bowl, too."
Just to explain the Super Bowl reference to the other Brits that don't give a crap about the worst sport in history; the Patriots were the favourites to win the most commercial and overhyped sporting event in the world when in fact the New York Giants took the prestigious title.
Clearly Shane is deluded on a couple of principles:
- Microsoft shifted about 3 consoles in Japan last month*.
- The 360's top game (Halo 3) has already been released.
- Wii Fit is going to appeal to pretty much every boy, girl, man, woman and dog on the Earth.
- Gordon Brown officially endorses Nintendo.
Now we're not fanboys but we thought we better state some facts to Microsoft's deluded VP.
