But this time was contrived and nowhere near as epic as E3
Remember when Sony ‘won’ E3 based on the potshots it took at Microsoft at the end of its E3 conference? That was so epic, wasn’t it? Well, they tried that again today, and they failed in my estimation, because their words just rang hollow. However, for those of you who are wondering what it was that Sony said, it was basically about Microsoft changing its plans for the Xbox One all over the place while Sony was consistent.
“While others have shifted their message and changed their story, we were consistent in maintaining policies and a model that is fair and in tune with consumer desires,” Sony Computer Entertainment CEO House said, reports Gameranx.
Yes, that’s all well and good, but what happened before doesn’t matter any more, House, what matters is what’s coming ahead. Microsoft may have made a mess of the Xbox One, but at least they were receptive to the feedback they got before launch, unlike a certain other, $599 priced console selling company I can name.
More importantly, moving forward, Microsoft seems to be securing true exclusive content. What is Sony doing? ‘Console exclusives’ indie games, and timed exclusives at that?
