Sony rode out of E3 triumphant; this is inarguable. The thing is, that doesn’t really matter. Microsoft has a tougher road ahead of it than it anticipated it would, but to sit back, cross one’s arms, and declare the console war over would be ludicrous at this point.
The companies that have fared the best in the technology world understand the maxim that your customers cannot articulate to you everything they want. Yes, you should listen to the people who use your products (and you should listen just as closely to the ones who do not), but you cannot simply ask people what they want you to make, then make it; that’s how you end up with The Homer. Nobody asked for iPhone. Even after that, nobody asked for iPad. And nobody-but-nobody ever asked for a Nintendo DS.
