Any guesses? :P

Sony: Microsoft right about downloadable media predictions

50°
329w ago - Well here's one that is sure to cause quite a debate. While speaking at an ELSPA press conference recently, Sony Computer Entertainment UK's Ray Maguire offered his insight on where he sees the direction of gaming media going, saying that within the next 10 years 90% of game sales will be online.

Maguire elaborated on his beliefs, saying: "We have a situation that if you're a retailer you're currently responsible for the goods that come through your chain," he continues "But that's not true with ISPs in the future.

This isn't merely a games industry issue. It's an issue for every industry with companies that have a website, and when we look at user generated content it's a people issue."

Hmm... Well considering Microsoft has said all along they feel they "backed the right horse" and claimed that Sony knows downloadable media is the next big thing, which is why they are implementing it into their plans, do we look at Microsoft trailblazing and say that they are indeed on the right path?

More Moves at Microsoft: 3 Top Executives Step Down!

This time, two top executives have left the company and a third will do so in a few months. They are:

--G. Michael Sievert, formerly corporate VP for Windows Product Marketing

--Steven Berkowitz, senior VP in the Online Services group

--Pieter Knook, formerly senior VP in the Mobile Communications Business

Sievert, previously executive vice president and chief marketing officer at AT&T Wireless Services Inc., had been with Microsoft since 2005. As the executive responsible for promoting Windows Vista, he undoubtedly took some heat over public perceptions of Microsoft's latest operating system as slow, bug-plagued and incompatible with other applications (although Microsoft also says it sold more than 100 million Vista licenses in the product's first year). In early February, about 10 days before Microsoft announced Sievert's exit, CEO Steve Ballmer told analysts that the company needs to improve its Vista marketing efforts.

In announcing Sievert's departure, Microsoft said only that he left "to pursue new endeavors"; the technology-news site CNET.com quoted Sievert as saying he plans to start his own company. Microsoft promoted Brad Brooks, previously general manager for Windows...
