Occurring right along side this event is Microsoft's response to Kinect hacking: "Cool, here is an SDK!"; not what I would have expected.

Given that the fight over DRM is an age-old battle (even on consoles) and there is plenty of market history to pull from to see what happens over time, isn't the right move for Sony to just suck it up, innovate and move forward?"

  • Occurring right along side this event is Microsoft's response to Kinect hacking: "Cool, here is an SDK!"; not what I would have expected. Not what I would have expected. My jaw dropped for a second when I read that. And the article does mention the complete difference between hacking a kinect to make it do fun things or hacking the PS3 platform (which creates security holes for Sony) so that's important. Still, Sony needs to take a lesson from their Aibo Pet days.

A motion to adjourn is always in order.
