Games Sony just won the console war for this generation. Not only is the PS4 going to be cheaper, Sony's CEO gloated on stage last night at E3 with the biggest possible grin as he detailed that all that nonsensical DRM crap that Microsoft is pulling, like blocking used games sales and stuff like that? Yeah, Sony's PS4 will have none of that. Sony even made an instructional video to explain how sharing games works.

Incredible to watch.

Watched both MS and sonys e3, and did not think it would go this way. When Sony announced those things the roar from the crowd was telling. I am sure some execs at Redmond were tossing chairs across the boardroom, no way they expected Sony to do this.

I didn't get a chance to watch either, but what was Microsoft thinking? I had always been a Nintendo/Sony person. Never cared for the Xbox, not just because it is a MS product but I felt it was a clunky device, never mind the red rings of death, etc.

But Sony more or less admitted last week they weren't going to do DRM. Did Microsoft really think Sony would had followed suit and done the same? Those number crunchers at MS certainly effed up big time, a lot of heads will roll and I really can't seeing them do a HUGE ass u-turn on their policy now, can they?

I for one cannot wait to get my PS4!
