I think you're an odd one. What, exactly, did Microsoft do to "manipulate" that Sony didn't do?

You be right on the first part.
I make comments here for my entertainment, not to change anyone's mind on anything, so no need to go back and forth.
It's not that important anymore to me anymore, everyone seems to lay down now, so I just need to lose the edginess from years past when it used to.

Whatever. I just don't see how Microsoft is "manipulative" and Sony isn't. These are just companies, and like most companies they're not as smart as people think they are. They don't have the agendas and coordination everyone gives them credit for.

What Microsoft delivered was an online platform that was smooth, stable, had good social aspects and didn't let thieves take your credit card. Sony failed on all those parts at launch and never recovered.

Ahh, the good old "Wait, what actual reasons do you have for thinking/saying that" followed by "I don't have the time or inclination to explain to you for the following reason"

Good times.

Don't worry, everyone who is reasonable agrees with you. I applaud this concept (just like preloading on Steam) but it still isn't enough for me to consider PSN to be even as good as XBL, much less better than. PSN is definitely catching up, but is still behind. I'm a Sony-hater but have never had a problem giving them credit when it's due.

I'm just realistic about it.
