Re: E3 2013

I think the post-E3 reaction against Sony is too strong - the "they don't give us anything new, and they are charging for multiplayer" reaction.

Well, just think how it could have gone - it was looking pretty bleak beforehand when everyone expected them to adopt the same DRM measures as MS.

The $$$ for multiplayer isn't welcome, but is to be expected, I suppose, with MS making all that cash over the years on Live. The lesson is that people don't begrudge paying for a good product, and Sony demonstrated with PS+ that they can deliver that (Euro PS+ this month has XCOM, Demon's Souls, ICO, SotC, Kingdoms of Amalur and several Vita games).

That's all we want, a decent product, at the end of the day.

It'll be interesting to see how the used game thing shapes up for MS. I don't doubt the Xbone will sell like hot cakes, but if the owners are only buying 4 games a year instead of 8, will MS feel that at some point? Will the developers?
