Nope, it's just MS making clear what it's goal always ways. A box in your livingroom that is does everything, so you use them for all your home entertainment, PC and Phone.
Apple should make a gaming console.
The iGame. Comes with a free turtleneck and every game requires a new console.

Nintendo has said in the past that they won't do that, that they'd just drop out of the home console business altogether instead. (They'd still have their strong handheld business to sustain them.)
That's an odd stance for them to take. I can understand why they want to stay in the home console business, but if things got bad enough that they left it I don't see why they'd turn down the opportunity to still make the games. There'd still be an audience for Mario games. I've never been a much of a Nintendo fan (I was a Sega kid) so I'm not willing to buy a Wii U for a handful of Nintendo exclusives, but if their games were on Xbox/Playstarion I'd be temped to pick them up.
It is the stance of a company at no risk of having to follow it. Nintendo is fine even if the Wii U is a complete bust. At this point they can study the XBO and PS4, figure out their next course and put something out ahead of the next generation with several years to spare.

The mobile market is where they're strongest though, and they should probably focus on it lest phones and tablets draw away too many of their more casual customers. A 'Game Boy Phone' (4-5" slider phone version of the DS perhaps) is probably the best way to do this.

I'm not upgrading until they come out with a slim version and a price drop for the PS4 in a year or two.

PS4 destroys XBO, then dances on its grave and takes a dump in the caskett:

Jesus Christ.. i know that MS and XBO have it hard publicitywise nowadays (and they are to blame for a good part of it) but this is brutal

Re: Will you be getting a PS4 or an Xbox One ?

Interesting, and not totally unexpected. There was one intriguing comment from a reader on that site that said:
I'm starting to think Bill Gates is behind all of this, just so he could return like a Messiah to save the company in true Jobs fashion.
This makes a sick kind of sense although, if true, is an extremely risky maneuver.

No it doesn't make sense.. Gates is an engineer like Wozniak (who actually did the work behind the scenes for Jobs) whereas Jobs is the leading man, the main star who provides the charisma and the (admittedly) cool ideas and who understands the needs of the people before they know it.

Gates doesn't have that, i'm afraid.

But he does have an ego that rivals that of what Jobs had, though maybe not as mercurial. I'm not saying it would actually work, I'm just thinking that Gates might actually believe it could.

I think he might be having trouble believing this is even happening. He's always struck me as someone who's able to figure out what works and what doesn't and wasn't so against the consumer as what we're seeing now. Sure, he's made some bad decisions during his career, but nothing on this scale. If anything, if he were still at the helm of the company, I don't think he'd let it happen. He's too much of a technology geek himself.

Considering the way the internet has reponded to the Xbox One and all its DRM i have to say it's not looking good for MS, i know the Xbox one will still sell in large numbers but it looks like Sony are going to start running when they hit the ground, whereas MS will smash into the floor and spend a large amount of time laid up before going through rehab to learn to stand and walk again.

Re: Will you be getting a PS4 or an Xbox One ?

PS4 is still cheaper than the XBOX One when someone adds the camera eye. The camera costs $60, so PS4 is $460 compared to $499.

I don't see the difference in price between the Sony and Microsoft online accounts. The Gold Account for the latter costs approximately $5 a month; the same amount for the Sony network. I think the difference might lie in what each offers - I haven't studied those details.

^^^The camera is not mandatory on the PS4 so you dont really need to buy it at all which is good, i could count on one hand the amount of game i used the pseye camera for on the PS3, Kinect 2 on the other hand,(oh come on, that was good word play lol), is and your going to pay for it regardless of your intrest in it.

On the subscription side PS plus gets you free games every month be it on the PS3, PS vita or PS4, or all three if your that rich, plus unlike Xbox Gold your media apps are not locked behind a sub, so even if you dont have PS+ you can still watch lovefilm, netflicks and the likes and use stuff like the browser, and some game will not require you have a PS+ to play them online.

Sony must be celebrating, because on PS+ US at least, there are a lot of high-profile releases on it: Uncharted 3, X-Com: Enemy Unknown, Little Big Planet Karting, Deus Ex: HR, Saints Row: The Third.

It does predate Microsoft's 180, but even if you started anew I doubt it would be anywhere near 50/50.
