We have been lied to ever since the “CD’s are cheaper, prices will drop” times. The XB has the piracy and look at their game prices. Now look at Sony’s and see that Sony have had their fat cushion of profit from ps3 users and that this – if it becomes as widespread – simply puts them in the same price/profit/loss as their XB titles. Or maybe we have been subsidising the XBox piracy because we had no choice in how to play in which case the games companies just lost some – some – of that profit.
What we can expect is huge claims by Sony to the press about the millions of £$ a day it loses and it’s effect on future gaming blah blah blah. All lies.
