...There must be an altar to some kind of dark God, to make their competitors misstep when it's good for MSFT. The XBOX 360 will have first mover advantage in the next gen. console war, with the DRM misstep along with possible non transferability of games will damages PS3 adoption.
Well, duh. If a competitor wanted to maximize their sales during the holiday-consumer-orgy, then they would leak the bad news about the competition's nasty DRM (or something). However, the 'Murrican consumer isn't smart enough to "get it" on this one. They'll buy whatever.
