Third party publishers can dictate DRM terms
The video showed that there WAS a standing ovation. Was that faked?
Huge difference though. Sony says all first party titles and system no drm. Gam makers can have heir own (just like they did on ps3 ... See origin etc) vs a system that at the os level phones home daily
Sony runs up the score. MIcrosoft will not be in Asia for another year, according to IGN. It will also keep with a proprietary hard drive technology meaning end users can't change hard drives.
But like the PS3, Sony will keep with a SATA laptop hard drive that can be changed by the end user.
I think the "third parties decide DRM" stance is the same as, basically, the one-time use online game passes. MS is integrating it at a system level, whereas Sony is more or less leaving things as they were.
I have to say that, while I am 100% in Sony's camp and think they did a fantastic job and I like their offering way more, MS is really thinking a few steps ahead here. If you remove the semi-unreal concerns about privacy with Kinect, have a stable internet connection that your console is always connected to, and don't worry about how much money you spend on games, then there really is no problem with the Xbox One. The big issue is that those things don't enhance features but are requirements. I'm disappointed that Sony didn't emphasize how those things could be features that make the PS4 better, but rather just said "we're keeping things on PS4 nearly the same as on PS3, but with prettier graphics."
Huh. Sony is the cheaper option. Huh.
I know people love their PS2 and PS3, but I was not a fan. But in contrast to the Xbox One price and restrictions, maybe I need to look more seriously at the PS4.
Or maybe I skip the whole thing and buy a new iPad
