Cows may love to see this happen, but MS leaving the console industry would be devastating. MS keeps Sony honest, and vice-versa. If MS left the industry, Sony would basically have a monopoly.
I agree, Sony needs Microsoft just as much as Microsoft needs Sony.
But, Sony having the entire industry to themselves isn't bad, the ps2 is without a doubt, the greatest console ever made, and sony had the entire market back then.
The XBox was better than the PS2 in pretty much everything aside from JRPGs (it still had some good ones though)
No it wasn't, and it's not even close.
The xbox did have great graphics, and the console itself was great, but it doesn't even come close to the ps2, not even in the slightest.
