Sony was planning on doing the exact same but got scared off by the reaction to M$ and decided to capitalize on it. But recognize, the Xbox One is a lot more developer friendly, so ask yourself this, historically in the console market, have games gone to the players or do players come to the games?
if PS4 is 4 to 1 what will MS and developers do? yes in first year it might be close but come on, xbone is a privacy nightmare, the day first home video made by kinect by some hacker appears, MS is done. all i can say poor celebrities, first hacked mobile phones and now advent of hacked xbones

so you are saying "Deal with it"
so finally EA 'rep' has joined our discussion xD well they are supposedly in strategic relationship with MS, so its nice to see them join hand in hand

or just nod or shake your head when the "press" asks a question, about the internet/used games "thing" we have no comment on those "features" at this time, simple. When they ask about Sony for the love of all that is holy please don't say anything about it, a quick "they are doing their own thing" easy stuff you know, hire me Microsoft, i got a ton more
they are not interested in common sense, they need yes sayers. you see, stupid people think that everyone is stupid, so if they lie to your face, they actually believe that you believe their lies
its really as simple as that. and the guy in interview, well he is the high exec, he is the one who was presenting the xbone show few weeks ago

but those are not your games, they sold you right to play the game not the game itself. and you can play it unless they decide to turn off their servers and leave you with nothing, like the BFF of MS is doing right now with their older games (EA) ...
thats how bill made his money. he bought DOS for 50k from other guy, then sold it to his mothers friend, ceo of ibm on licence basis for millions
