Sony has no strategy for an online service – Ballmer

“Sony has no strategy for an online service,” according to Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, who also says Microsoft is “going to beat Sony overall”.
“We’re off to a very good start,” he told Investor’s Business Daily, before repeating Peter Moore’s claim that Xbox 360 will ship between 4.5 and 5.5 million units by the end of June.
The launch was “phenomenal”, says Ballmer, who admits, “We knew Japan was going to be tough.”
“I’m not sure we’re going to beat Sony in Japan this generation. Maybe,” he adds. Xbox 360 launched in Japan on December 10th but was soundly beaten by sales of all the other consoles in the period that followed, particularly Nintendo DS, which outsold everything else in the region by a significant margin.
