So first Microsoft was all "This is what we're gonna do." And then everyone got mad. And everyone was worried that Sony would also do that thing. But then, Sony was all "We're not doing the thing." And everyone was happy. Then Microsoft was all "Dayum. Look how mad everyone got. We can't do the thing." And they told everyone that. That made everyone feel all better. Thuh end.
Meanwhile I have my Wii U and my retro collection and the gaming media doesn't consider me a real gamer. So whatevs.
