Microsoft wants gamers to stay online so they can feed them advertisements

If these rumors happen to come to fruition, I can guarantee you MS will not be acting unilaterally here, Sony will follow suit.

Maybe not:

While the Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4 apparently resemble PC architecture, other development sources claim that Sony's upcoming next-gen equipment is a preferable platform to work on, and its OS is less "oppressive" than Microsoft's next-gen solution.

Microsoft has been doing a lot this gen to close their system down. Sony seems a lot more laid back in many respects.

Funny, people were basically saying the same thing a while back when Sony patented that one method to block BC, but everyone ignored them.

Microsoft has always seen xbox as advertising machine. Sony doesn't see Playstation platform that way

Hey TC, shut the eff up with your stupid "Woe is MS" topics.

I like how the GameFAQs spellcheck shows that the word "Wii" is fine, but the words "Xbox" and "Kinect" show up as typos.
