@ThursdayNext: Ok, I get it. Thanks for the clarification.
should be applauded given that they are backing away from third party platform exclusive development in favour of producing in house titles, while Microsoft is content to knock first party development on the head and instead pay exorbitant fees for exclusivity of games that rarely innovate.
That is what I was majorly replying to, since Sony isn't developing much when you actually look at it and Microsoft, despite paying those big fees to get exclusives and steal third party games, is doing quite a lot when it comes to first party.
But yeah, you made your "PS3 is actually focused on games" point clear now.
