Games Remember that little legal spat going on between Apple and Psystar? That one's been more or less wrapped up, with Apple being the sole victor there. The dust from that case has barely had time to settle, and already we see another company quoting it to support its own restrictive, anti-consumer practices. The company in question? Ha, it's Microsoft.

This situation was predicted by many when the xbox was first released.
Microsoft using Apple as defense for building a complete package with no competitors hardware or software allowed to touch it.
Luckily at the moment consoles can suddenly change leaders with market share very volatile the Microsoft could be irrelevant next year.

But whether Microsoft's consoles become irrelevant doesn't stop Sony or Nintendo from copying this move. Anyone can cite this case.
