I thought their press conference was rather dull until the end, when they started throwing the jabs at Microsoft. I was more interested in the Exclusives Microsoft showed off, and it seemed like Microsoft showed off more of them. I could be completely wrong, and maybe it just seemed that way because some of Sony's more in-depth looks at games (with long game-play footage) were multi-platform, and they simply brushed over exclusives a bit more, but the numbers were the same.

So, at least with the games we know of, I'm more interested in the Xbox One... but on the other hand, I like the fact Sony doesn't look to be implementing all the DRM stuff the Xbox One will have... although I thought they said before (after their original event earlier in the year) that they would leave that stuff up to individual developers. In the end we still might see some heavy restrictions on the platform.

Also, it looks like the $399 price is for the system without the Playstation Eye/Move stuff. I don't know if there will be a second SKU, or if it will just be an accessory you have to buy separately, but Sony didn't really go into the details during the event... They also skipped over the fact free online, multiplayer is a thing of the past now.
