Obviously everyone except the Sony devout know that the Sony quote is pure PR bullshit spinning.
"Sir, the tools are ready. The system is done."
"What the fuck is this shit?!"
"WHAT THE FUCK! I can program a game this easy? What the fuck are you thinking? It's supposed to be cryptic and hard!!!!"

Just keep in mind, he's an artist, not a code monkey. He's looking at this from an artistic viewpoint, where he wants the tech to get in the way of his vision as little as possible. I can understand how an artist would have a harder time appreciating the pros with the cons of differing architectures.
Can't wait for Darksiders II!

So, while I think Hirai is trying to spin it in a positive light, I'd say they believed their own BS when Kutaragi was at the helm; seeing as how the PS2 was a massive success and that was notoriously difficult to program for.Great quotes on the internet:
I hear Galaxy is brilliant, and it probably is. Just can't picture myself sitting down and playing it. That would take time away from watching the Disney Channel and working on my coloring book.Ryan Payton (MGS4 Associate Producer)

Considering the free pass they got with the ps2, I guess it shouldn't be that surprising that they thought they could get away with it again with the ps3.
