sony president Yoshida pays tribute to Phil Spencer

I'd say ms evens out with sony a lot sooner than people think. Up to this point and through the next christmas MS has had the better games and more variety in everything but indies. That's no small thing.

I'm sure bloodborne will impress the hungry souls crowd, but even in considering that and everything else that we know is coming, theres nothing on the sony release calendar that screams 'head and shoulders better than ANYTHING on ms hardware' to the general populace. And thats got to suck for people that thought they were getting a machine with 40% more power...

In fact, i'm kind of disappointed for the ps4 crowd because, from where i'm sitting, it looks like ms has done more to sell people ps4's than sony has, and theyve pretty much corrected that since kicking mattrick out.

remember major nelson telling angry joe? Come to da future! And you can't turn off DRM easily


I don't get why people keep bringing this up. You (and Angry Joe) act as if all they did was just flip a switch to get rid of the DRM, but it most likely took thousands of man hours to change the OS to get rid of all DRM and its integrations for release.

because trolls hang onto anything they can and refuse to let it go, yet, when its their team, they have already forgiven them before they have even finished the sentence.

Yes. Don Mattrick was a goof. Good on Phil to replace him.



Don Mattrick was a goof? I hope that's a nice way of saying he was freaking disaster.

Phil needs to take something for the constipation though. At least that's what his face looks like.

Phil Spencer is cool.

Just gotta get rid of "Major Nelson" now and then all is right with the world.


I'd take Nelson over Yusef. That guy is still an arrogant ****


Why what did Mehdi say? I never followed his updates.
