Atari founder backs Microsoft in next-gen console race

Calling Sony’s software development tools “lame”, Atari founder Nolan Bushnell has said that he believes that Microsoft will come out on top in the next-gen console race.

“I personally believe that Microsoft is in a superior position,” Bushnell said in his Gametrailers feature, adding, “Sony, whenever they changes consoles, the software tools that they have are lame.”

“Microsoft, because of their strong software tools, will end up with much better products sooner and easier in my estimation,” Bushnell said.

Bushnell also says that Microsoft holds the advantage in the online space, calling Sony's PSN service “god awful”.

“They have a good infrastructure with [Xbox Live] Arcade, their online world. Sony really need to get their act together with their online world,” he said.
