The lights are on
hehe its comments like this that just make me wonder, has fanboyism killed rationality? Do you not think Sony is also only after your money? Are they not focused on the bottom line? Did we all forget that Sony patented software back around Christmas that basically does the exact same DRM that was originally on the X1? Do we not realize that they will be able to do the same thing as Microsoft and patch it in later once the consoles are established?
Sony was very smart in what they did. They let Microsoft make the first move and watched the reaction of the consumers. They let Microsoft dig the hole, then just pushed them into it with their E3 press conference. Now on paper the PS3 appears to be the better console, and should turn out to be slightly more powerful. Combine this with a better price point and I think Sony will easily beat Msoft this holiday season. In the end though I think next gen will be a lot like this gen, neither system has a significant hardware reach over the other and it will mostly be decided by 2 things, where people go to game online and which has better exclusives. Microsoft already has the advantage in online gaming and seeing as how Sony is going to start also charging for online I dont see that changing. Exclusives we will need to wait and see. Going off current gen it would seem like Sony should get the nod but Microsoft does seem to be really pushing for exclusives this time around.
