Come on Microsoft why you trying to remove yourself from the competition. Why are you doing this when all they have to do is fix your broken policies.

And to think I was looking forward to a rivalry that hadn't been seen since the 16bit days. I've tried to stay objective, but when you read about PR talk like that............

They are more broken as company than anyone can think. It's about management and administration. Someone has to change the entire board of directors in Microsoft.

Microsoft is far bigger, richer and more successful than Sony (see Forbes annual top companies). What your saying is their XBOX division is broken ? If not, you don't know what your talking about.

People buy music online and it is DRM controlled and do not allow resale.

People buy movies online and they are DRM controlled and do not allow resale.

People have iPhones, Android phones, and Windows phones that are DRM controlled and do not allow resale of purchased apps.

The only reason that people don't like DRM on consoles is that it changes the status quo of used, lending, and rentals...

I really stopped caring for this guy when I saw the Angry Joe interview. What a complete douche bag.

"Educate gamers", serious just STFU! So now gamers who don't agree with their policies are stupid!

First of all, I'm not calling going to let Larry Hyrb be called "Major Nelson" because that would imply that he's just another gamer who enjoys games and plays games...etc. No he is Larry Hyrb PR consultant specialist I. (or you insert your own fancy title).
Second, if when Mr. Hyrb says that they are going to "educate" gamers on the benefits of MS policies, all that means is that MS is going to force you (through fancy marketing) to accept their DRM policies.
Lastly, if you want to see the PR representative Hyrb attempt to "educate" consumers (with tactful arrogance, a condescending demeanor, and his team of PR overseers) then check out his recent interview with Angry Joe, and lets see how well you can read between the lines.

Everyone I know who have tried PSplus have loved it and have continued to use it. Myself included.
So saying that the two free games on xbox are yours forever isn't very tempting to me. Because while I've had PSplus I've had a plethora of great games become free to me and they get updated with new titles each month, and yes you can keep them forever but must have a PSplus account. Which makes perfect sense to me because its exactly how services like netflix, love film and spotify all work. no one is complaining about those.

Besides when if someone does cancel their PSplus subscription (I doubt it, since you get so much great content through it) they can always re-sign up and get it all back again.

I was skeptical of PSplus when it first came out but now Ps plus offers so much for such a small price! I've now played games like Mass Effect 3, Uncharted 3, LBP2, Uncharted Vita, Rayman, Limbo, and more and more, so I'm definately not giving it up anytime soon.
Especially since I'm now getting ps3 AND vita games free, and soon that'll include PS4.

Damage control galore..and most of it spin and misinformation. It doesn't work offline. Period. You don't own your games. Period. If you want to sell a copy to someone through a random retail source you can't. Period. Stop spinning and just admit what's wrong man.

"Educate gamers", this is BS. M$'s idea of next gen is such a joke. I'm getting a PS4 :)

It's almost pitiable at this point—but won't be until it stops being funny.

Never liked major nelson "larry hyrb" - even his name sucks., 'Hyrb"- it should be spelled "herb". Dude is a shill, and has a very punchable face. PS4 all the way!

Your money is yours to spend. Make sure you spend where it hurts them the most.

We shall see I guess

One really surprising thing to learn is that you also don't keep the 'free' PS+ games because you're only able to play them while subscribed. That's quite a big thing in itself actually though I suppose at that point you can just buy these 'free' games

The whole ms thing isn't sitting at all well with me at the moment though unless they allow all single play experiences to be always offline if needed

The Playstation is such a threat that M$ has turned it's console into a cable box.
