"If you buy it, you own it": Sony CEO Andrew House tells all about PlayStation 4

That's how it should be. You have a lot to learn M$ from Sony.

This story is like the worlds financial system.

SONY = GOLD (physical)

I know which one I would want to have.

Apparently ms forgot basic consumer rights, way to go microsoft

it's the american way, the government owns you just like the companies... you own nothing even when you pay for it, you just borrow it.
