Do you think Sony will get cocky next generation with the PS5 and start implementing user retrictions and forced funtions like only digital formats (no disks) etc. Are we starting to see it already with no 4K drive in PS4 Pro? Will Sony drop the ball to second/third place. History is against them Sony, MS, nintendo, Sega have all done it. What's your take?
I think this is the oppersite.
Sony paid alot for its hardware design choices,... with the PS3.
Now instead of assumeing everyone will just pay extra for their hardware, their very causious about what they put in.
This gen Microsoft was arrogant.
They assumed everyone would pay 100$ more, be okay with forced kinect, wanted always online only system, insane DRM practises, region locked, that physical sales would be only licenses (no used games), ect ect. They didnt care about Privacy issues, spying via kinect ect,...
Even the UHD Blu-ray might effect how low MS will be willing to sell the Xbox One Slim for...... which could cost them hardware sales.
Microsoft fixed changed alot of that, after the negative public reception it had with the Xbox One in 2013.
