"Every time we go down a path, we look behind and they're right there - we just can't shake these guys. I wish that they would come up with some strategies of their own, but they seem to be going down the path of everything we do. If you look at their strategy in other business areas as well, they tend to do that ... And the other thing is, you take a look at, for example, the fact that we incorporate the Blu-ray drive from day one. You're not going to be asking me, 'So, talk to me about this Blu-ray add-on that you have. Does it work for games? Is it just for movies?' That's exactly the kind of pitfall you fall into if you launch something that's too early, too premature... "
Wow. Yup, Microsoft totally copied the idea of a unified online system, complete with downloadable content and micropayments. Maybe they'll steal Sony's totally original motion controller, too.I acknowledge that the HD-DVD add on was forced by PS3's inclusion of Blu-ray, but this is getting ri-goddamn-diculous.
