    Is this the same Sony that recently ended the year with massive net losses?

    How the hell have they got £242 million to spend!

    (Edit: According to Wikipedia and a quick Yen to GBP Sony have net equity of -£16billion and something)

    Hmm, interesting move. I could see them using this big style for Playstation 4. Imagine if they could provide support for peoples PS3 titles by making them available via this instead of having to put emulator chips / software into the actual console. Would help them keep costs down and still retain the selling point of being able to play your old catalogue of games.

    Probably wide of the mark, but meh.

    Microsoft is doomed now, omgz! On a more serious note, it appears as if Sony can counter OnLive now.
