Sony don't care much about users either, but at least they didn't artificially kill off the PS2 to help sell the PS3, the way Microsoft did with the XBox 1 and 360.


They didn't "artificially" kill the original Xbox (and notice, I said original Xbox, the name most people use, almost nobody actually calls it the Xbox 1).

MS was no longer able to manufacture the original Xbox, due to Nvidia attempting to extort money from them to continue to manufacture the GPU used.

Without the GPU, it is impossible to manufacture a console.


This. Its the only reason they stopped supporting the original Xbox at all. If it were up to them, there would probably have been an Xbox version of COD4, for example.

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