Microsoft and Sony share a conviction that playing video games over the Internet is ripe to become as popular as e-mail or instant messaging -- but much more lucrative. Likewise, they have begun marshaling allies and are maneuvering to capture the loyalties of game designers. Still, they are blazing divergent paths. While Microsoft strictly controls how games are presented on its service, Sony leaves it up to game publishers, ISPs and telecoms to decide how to offer online games -- and to work out how they get paid.

Eh. Not bad cept for some things. MS has 500,000 Live units sold and Sony has 600,000. Also it's kinda biased to have the guy working for Sony say that MS's online plan won't work.
