I can’t seriously be the only one who appreciated Microsoft for making their console reveal all about their console, can I?
Everyone keeps talking about how Sony is automatically winning because the XBox One reveal didn’t talk about games. It’s*supposed* to be about the console, especially with E3 coming up.
I just can’t understand how Microsoft is being pilloried here. Sony showed up to a console announcement without a console, but they showed some tech demos and everybody creamed their pants. Something something crazy pills.

Economics tells us that having a secondhand market increases sales because, if you find a game marginally interesting, you know you’ll be able to recoup some of your investment.
If it’s much harder (or impossible) to recoup your investment, then you tend to just go for sure things. The more people go for sure things, the less likely it is that we get new and interesting IPs in the AAA realm.

The reason you’re confused is because the logic doesn’t hold water.

Aereo playing to the letter of the law meant that they must be trying to break the law. I can’t wait for legacy media companies to change or die already.
The technology can do so much more than what we’re allowing.

Straight up cash grab. I mean, you can’t have porn.amazon or amazon.porn floating around in the world, even though no one will ever visit those URLs, ever ever ever.
How long did it take us to get our moms to remember www. and .com/.org/.gov/.edu again? How many clueless parents went to www.whitehouse.com?
I don’t know about the rest of you, but if these TLDs escape into the real world, I’m just going to tell the people for whom I play tech support to not bother.
