Kaz Hirai on losing Monster Hunter 3

Kaz Hirai on losing Monster Hunter 3

Gaming site 1up recently interviewed Kaz Hirai, President of Sony Computer Entertainment. When asked about Capcom abandoning PS3 in favor of Wii for Monster Hunter 3 he responded:

"It's my understanding that it's up to the game companies to make business decisions on which platform to release their titles. The series has helped in the success of PS2 and PSP. Capcom has plans to release Monster Hunter Portable 2G for the PSP in March 2008 (in Japan) so we hope to continue our partnership with the company. RIIIIIIIIIIDGE RACERRRRR!!".

God, he even has that look that just says "I hate you, customer of mine". I knew he had the personality, but it's hard to say whole sentences with just your looks. Also, I can kind of make out "Douchebag" from his facial expression. Coincidence? I think not.
