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.

funny how ms forgot the lesson of their initial success. IBM gave up control of the PC platform and it beat out apple's more advanced but more tightly controlled system in the 80s. ios's loss of market share in the 2010s seems to be another replay of the same in mobile, this time with android being the open system. with ninty not doing well and Sony being Sony you might think this gen would be a slam dunk, but no, ms wants it all and may end up turning this into a fail.

I think ms needs to slash and burn their management and marketing departments, neither seem to understand consumers.

Out of curiosity, have you checked MS's stock price?

Hopefully they will target Ballmer and toss his head down the steps at the Redmond campus.
