Is this what happens when you come out the same year as Sony?

Kind of my whole point Im NOT getting screwed. But, I just dont like the policies they attempted to implement. I honestly believe its only because of Sony its gone.


Maybe so.. but it was enough to beat the 360, despite being out a year less.

You have to understand. Sony's business strategy is short sighted (not in a bad way) but sony is known for looking at the first couple of years.

Microsoft is a very distant viewed company. with everything moving toward the digital platform (music, movies, tv shows, shopping, information etc) was very focused on getting the jump on digital gaming. hence the drm and policies.

mark my word, 5+ years down the road drm is coming back for both systems...sony just prolonged it and used that to make MS look bad.

you do realize the 360 came out BEFORE ps3...and ps3 had such a bad price/launch that it took them almost 4 years to get out of the gutter slump?


yet still came out on top? thats not a very good selling point for Microsoft


Not only that but these FBs love to brag about the first 4 years of the 360 as "It was the best selling console"
Yet the PS3 caught up in 3 years & passed them... What does that say about your mentality when you ignore how the 360 has been irrelevant since 2010

I'd much rather be the company that turned it around than the one who flamed out hah

the thing is, I couldnt care less. I own every form of entertainment that I want from other devices. I dont think MS understand that I only want to play games and buy them at deals. Nothing more, maybe watch a movie or two. No music, No TV, NO sports. Its like making a car that can, let you take a bath in it, and have a microwave in it. Problem is when I get in it, Im just trying to drive to my destination. Thats all.

The Wii was indeed a huge success. How anyone can deny that is beyond me.

This is what happens when you have stupid PR guys and make garbage decisions, while Sony does everything right.
