    Gamesindustry article: Why MS did it

    This may very well be the most informed and best read you can have when it comes to the XBox One and it's highly controversial unveiling as well as the subsequent fallout from the gamers.

    When they got rid of Blackley early on, I thought it was a sign that they had changed directions with the 360. After J. Allard was gone, there was really no one in their decision making process who would advocate the gamer's viewpoint. They did this to themselves. The Xbox One is a tell-tale story of what happens when company chronies get together and drink the kool-aid. That is my opinion on the matter, anyway. Feel free to read and make your own conclusions.

    excellent column.

    That is what I've been saying!

    The only aspect of the debacle that I find really crazy is this: this is a fight which Microsoft had no need to pick. As I mentioned, Sony will apply similar DRM to digital purchases, just like everyone else in every entertainment and software industry does.
    Sony Computer Entertainment America trademarked “Bid for Greatness,” on June 7, 2013, only a few days before its E3 press conference. The trademark refers to a reward program and auction system involving virtual assets and trophies.

    Here’s the filing..

    “Arranging and conducting auctions in the field of computer games, virtual game assets and trophies; Arranging and conducting incentive reward programs to promote the sale of computer games, virtual game assets and trophies; Auction services; Providing consumer information in the field of computer games and video games”.

    MS will allow you to trade in your digital games towards XBL purchases; can you imagine what kind of FINISH HIM it would be if Sony sets up the infrastructure to allow for digital game selling between gamers? It may be something totally different and may never see the light of day like the myriad of other wierd stuff we've seen in patents...but it would take Sony to new heights.
