Winning

So, in case you didn't hear, Sony won the "XBox One vs Playstation 4" part of E3 (which basically means E3, but Nintendo hasn't had their non-press conference press conference yet and *I* still care, okay?)

The PS4 will not block used games, will not require an online connection, and will launch with a pricepoint $100.00 US below Microsoft's console. Oh, and also Kingdom Hearts III.

That's brilliant.

I still find it odd that there are still people defending Microsoft, going so far as to call Sony's Press Conference an "Epic Fail" cause the Assassin's Creed Demo messed up. Sony has won my respect, and my support this generation.

Of course it helps when lending games to actually let go of the game.

i'm glad someone finally learned that to compete with a big evil company all you really have to do is be less evil then them.

In essence, Sony went up and said "we're doing the opposite of Microsoft and, oh yeah, Kingdom Hearts 3! For real this time, we mean it!" And they "win," whatever that means.

It is genius, hilarious, or both?

and now I will think of Charlie Sheen every time someone mentions PS4.

Sony essentially murdered Microsoft's PR drive with this one video.

I wrote a blog entry about the whole Xbox DRM situation and pointed out Microsoft's convoluted and user-unfriendly explanation regarding sharing games, before posting Playstaton's video response. When compared side-by-side, you really see how badly Xbox are making things for themselves.

As a huge microsoft fan who bought a zune, xbox, xbox 360, a windows OS for every computer I have owned, and plans to get a surface and windows phone, I fully endorse the PS4 as currently a indisputable superior system. I will buy just about anything microsoft makes, but I dont want that 500 dollar giant black brick, even if it was free.
