Games "So, to summarise this buyer's guide to next gen consoles: don't." Yahtzee, as usual, nails it. I particularly like the apt description of how you used to buy a console because it had the specific games you wanted, whereas now it feels like you're buying a console because it's holding the games you want hostage.

With sony you can never believe anything they say. I think people have figured this out and are waiting for it to release and suckers to buy it before they actually take the dive.

So MS has already torpedo'd their own new gaming console and sony's is shrouded in the mystery of distrust.

I'll bet that sony is going to do most everything MS does on used game lockdown, possibly thinking their lip service to indies will take them over the top. I'd be utterly shocked if sony goes the consumer friendly route (which would definitely lead to ultimate domination next cycle).
