MCV asked PlayStation boss Andrew House a couple of questions about some of the decisions that went into not changing much in terms of ownership and online requirements with PS4:
"The one thing that surprised me most is that we were required to make such a clear statement that we were going to maintain status quo in areas that we took for granted."
"That wasn't something dictated by us, that was by the moves the competition was making. That remains the largest surprise for me - how visceral that reaction was from consumers. But the fact that we had to put a stake in the ground, in an area that we felt was just common sense, still has me quite literally scratching my head."
