I am at the airport waiting for my plane, and since there is free WiFi (and surprisingly fast on top of that), I naturally check my Twitter feed. Well, obviously, something just happened at E3, and the conclusion seems pretty clear. Here is an excerpt:

So, Sony pulled off better hardware, at a cheaper price, with no crazy DRM lockdown.I know what I’m buying.

To any objective measure, Sony won. They had to, and they did.
