First off I am neutral in the console war, have owned and enjoyed all consoles from both developers.
Now outside of MLG and MOBA type games, is anyone going to watch someone play a game for more then a minute before they start playing what they sat down to play? Do we really need the option to let someone remotely take control of our game ? Sure the Tivo like saving of the last 15 or so minutes of our gaming is nice, but don't most of the people that want to show off that type of thing already have the means to do so? Am I giving up my right to be opted out of another players such videos in online multiplayer titles by just signing into the PSN?
Just some thoughts........
I would rather see Sony ease the burden on my wallet, spend some of that aforementioned R and D money on some possibly evolutionary new game developers that might be over looked because they are not going to follow in the yearly retread of old ideas.
