re: Xbox in 2014 possibly

Of course that's the official reason they say they got into it but I beleieve there was more to it than that. There have always been rumors for years (Yes I know RUMORS!) then last year this was released.

quote:

Joachim Kempin, former VP of Windows Sales at Microsoft since 1983, stated that if the company couldn't work with Sony, they were dedicated to beating them instead. "The main reason was to stop Sony. You see, Sony and Microsoft...they never had a very friendly relationship, okay? And this wasn't because Microsoft didn't want that.

"Sony was always very arm's length with Microsoft," he continued. "Yeah, they bought Windows for their PCs but when you really take a hard look at that, they were never Microsoft's friend. And Microsoft in a way wanted them to be a friend because they knew they had a lot of things we could have co-operated on because they are, in a way, an entertainment company, you know? I mean, at least a portion of Sony is and they had some really good things going there, but as soon as they came out with a video console, Microsoft just looked at that and said 'well, we have to beat them, so let's do our own.'"

Yeah, Sony flexing on Blu-Ray ownership would be a huge move and I've yet to see anything resembling an official announcement on this.

It's odd that this was posted, because there are rumors that the new Xbox will be pushed into 2014, but not because of BluRay. Apparently they're having trouble getting the hardware down and without the hiccups of last gen (they don't want to rush another console and deal with RRoD again).

Tomorrow is the big reveal, I can't wait to see what's up their sleeve.

Hopefully there isn't too much focus on Kinect.
