Polygon: "With all of the buzz building around the recent unveiling of the PlayStation 4 and upcoming reveal of the next Xbox, it might be easy to forget that the next generation of gaming actually started last year."
"Now that Microsoft is firmly in your living room, company officials want to make sure that they're in control of everything you do there."
First I'd argue that there are a lot more Xboxs in bedrooms and dormrooms than living rooms but that's not the point I want to make really.
We have to be careful how much control we give to a single corporation like Microsoft. If they gain their sought after monopoly of the living room as they have in the PC OS space it could severely stunt innovation and advancement in not just gaming but also TV and other media entertainment areas. I say support the company that gives you the most freedom.
Neither Sony or Ms give you freedom, the only open platform is PC
