You can't say ms dropped the ball when they did nothing but gain.
I agree that it was. However it was merely another studio funded by Sony, not actually Sony themselves. Sony's DNA is that of a hardware company and they really haven't ever showed their prowess at that. In fact the horrible build quality and lack of power compared to their competitors in all gen's they have been a part of is proof enough of that. Granted MS dropped the ball this gen too and I also hate the direction they are now taking.
Ah I wasn't clear, I mean in terms of hardware quality.Yeah Zune and Xbox were tanks
