Yes, last night, SCEE boss David Reeves made a silly boxing analogy. But he also said some other stuff. Namely, about how the PS3 will, later this year, start using smaller, cheaper Cell chips.

Sony Computer Entertainment of Europe honcho David Reeves is not an easy man to impress. So even when Microsoft lands Final Fantasy XIII on the Xbox 360, Reeves just turns up his nose, flashes a "W" and goes "whateves". Just listen to the man talk FFXIII:
