Otherwise, companies like Microsoft will continue to infringe on our rights more and more, using false enemies such as ‘piracy’ to justify and solicit their means.
To top it all off, Sony announced the opposite; the PlayStation 4 is free of limitations on used games, will not need an always-online connection — or any online connection for that matter — and, almost as if to deliver the final blow, the PlayStation 4 will be $100 cheaper than the Xbox One, and will be region-free.
Now, as much as I love my Xbox 360 and all of its exclusives — hell, I’d even label myself an Xbox fanboy — I have to admit Microsoft’s defeat. All loyalties aside and facts considered, Sony’s PlayStation 4 is not only superior in terms of hardware but is also much more consumer-friendly. That’s fact. Not opinion."
