Why Microsoft Got Into The Console Business
I'm 99% sure this is bullshit, but will wait to see the full interview. The threat to the PC only came after m$ bribed, bulled and beat PC developers into submission. Not only did it threaten the PC but the quality of games and software development as a whole. It brought on the institutionalization of development with almost slave like conditions for developers, low quality shovelware and retail release in beta state or worst.

Greed at a corporate level, global profit at the expense of humanity.

Yes, Microsofts venture into the console gaming market was strictly based on the fact that they saw it as a really big (and growing) market to try and take over. They had zero intentions of ever playing WITH Sony, they saw Sony had this huge pie and they wanted it. I was at CES in 2001 and all the talk was about Microsoft wanting to dominate the living room.
