Microsoft continues to push the envelope with innovation after innovation. Xbox Live and Xbox Live Arcade are HUGE and the upcoming Xbox Live Anywhere will continue to change the face of gaming in a big way. I remember when Sony fanboys compared Microsoft's console future to Sega's Dreamcast failure. However, I don't hear much from those fanboys lately. As for Sony...I hear about some clear innovations in marketing and technology...with regard to their new motion controller. Oh wait...that was Nintendo. The two sku is pretty innovative, though. Oh wait...that was Microsoft. Actually, what I hear from the Sony camp is the sound of crickets chirping...and the distant sound of a fat lady warming up her vocal cords.
