I don't see where he says PS4 owner's should always feel like 1st class citizens, too.

He isn't railing against the concept of differential releases, in general-- he's saying that he doesn't want...

Huh? Crashing and burning is launching a failure. Having the right mechanisms (and financials) in place to kill a non-winner is the mark of a market leader.

You're not, in any way, the target market. Honestly, why bother to comment in a smartphone thread?

The "good friend" thing is clearly an attempt at CYA, to try to explain why his upfront payment was supposedly reasonable. A crappy excuse, but clearly that's why he's trying to go there.

Sure. We all make decisions in life and have to live with the consequences.

How do you see that as the artist defrauding anyone? They paid the guy upfront, for an unstated amount of work. They did it, apparently, as a guarantee to lock in these artists. The only reason to...

I think that's the wrong way to do it, or at least the wrong way to enjoy SF.

You know what that video clip tells me? That who ever produced doesn't know a thing about patents.

Any discussion of patents that doesn't look at the claims is uninformed. You might as well...
