    It'll be like when they banned smoking in pubs. Everybody up to the last minute saying it's then end of the world, and then after it's happened, people will just end on with in and quit complaining.

    Of course. MS will be expanding their box to do lots of other gubbins.

    Meanwhile, supposedly sensible human beings will wail and gnash their teeth and worship Sony, who also want to cram as much gubbins in, and give as little a shit about you as MS do.

    It's absolutely pathetic how Sony can show off some game footage and the internet starts wanking off over pictures of Ken whassisface. Shows just how retardedly low expectations are.

    That reminds me, we know why Microsoft wanted in on the gaming industry, what about Sony? What was their motivation? Expansion to another market? We're all well aware of the PlayStation's origins, but what made them want to get involved with Nintendo in the first place?

    Was the other way around, Nintendo wanted CD drive help from Sony.

    Probably just spotted a way to make money.

    If it's always online, I bet some anonymous hackers will give their very best to do to XBL what they did to PSN.

    Even a minor success could be a total disaster.

    Yeah, but I think I heard that it was between Sony and Philips. So maybe Nintendo courted to a bunch of electronics company's and Sony was interested. But what made them so interested that they didn't stop with the failed prototype? Was it Kutaragi convincing someone at Sony?

    Potted history:
    Nintendo wanted a disc based system, tried to make it work but couldn't - especially the copy protection.
    Sony and Phillips had developed extension to CD that had copy protection.
    Nintendo signed contract with Sony to develop a unit.
    Nintendo realise that contract is too generous to Sony.
    Nintendo pal up with Phillips behind Sony's back.
    First Sony hear of it is when Nintendo announce at press conference that development with Sony has ended and Phillips are new best friend.
    Sony push on and release Play Station console with SNES slot.
    Sony re-designs console. Drops SNES slot and calls it PlayStation.
    Rest is history.


    So there's probably a number of reasons but I bet there's a bit of revenge in it as well.

    Yes, I can see all these issues as being a pain in the arse....but all these "I'm not buying it" comments.... really?

    I think they'll water it down anyway, they can do without the grief. The bad internet publicity would spread and be twisted/misconstrued by the main stream media, sowing seeds of doubt in all those moms and pops.

    This is all my fault. I was starting to hope that the report that said the 21st of May was all bullshit.

    Twas a forlorn hope I fear :(

    RIP Xbox.

    This is probably the greatest article about computer games I've ever read. There probably won't be another Ken Kutaragi.

    Wanting to be banned is a sign of a mental.
