Microsoft are a shell of there former self, a rotting shell that doesn't have the good sense to lie down and just die, there irrelevant it all but a couple of markets.

They need to sack off Balmer.

Re: A Question of Ownership: Was Microsoft too Ahead of its Time?

In my opinion, they should have stuck it out. They would've lost sales to start with, sure, but if they did it right (and the past would suggest that they wouldn't), they could've changed console gaming.

To do it right, they would have had to offer games cheaper than retail but knowing Microsoft, they wouldn't.

In backtracking that's all they're doing (game wise at least).

It's something that's always irritated me about media companies (music/film/game/software etc), they cry about "piracy" being "lost sales" but never attack or go after the used market (egay being a prime example), where people get the legit thing for less and the company behind the product gets fuck all.
