This is similar to miscorsofts desktop operating system strategy. They release something and see how the consumer reacts( me, vista, win8) Then come along with a bunch of "fixes" and get them to buy a new os again a short time later. The strategy here is to allow leaks about the console and see how consumers react and come up with "fixes" ie. they see how far they can push you and step back just enough that youll take it. I bought my son the 360 because it seemed relatively cheap compared to the ps3 back then But we had to buy a wifi adapter hard drive etc ended up costing the same in the end just no blue ray. This time around i think we will go with the ps4 and if they have similar used game strategy then we will go without either.
