I'm not sure I understand the XBL article. Is the MS guy really arguing that they don't want games unless they're timed exclusives for the 360 because they're looking out for their users?

There's either some kind of weirdo voodoo logic going on there, or I completely misunderstood what he's after.

That's exactly what he's saying. What they mean is that they don't want games released on PSN first and then later on XBLA, as it gives the impression that XBLA is somehow a second-class service, which is the last thing they want to project if they're trying to get punters to pay for the privilege.

Basically, they want to say "Pay for Xbox Live Gold, and you get all this stuff first!", conveniently ignoring the things they'll never let you get.
