    Could some collaboration on a project be appearing in the future? The two domains were both snapped up by Microsoft this month, but the question is, why? It wouldn't be insane to say that Microsoft could have bought Sony, or that it happened the other way around either. Some people have even been speculating this could be the start of a joint-console venture. Or this could all be some marketing campaign. What do you think?[/p]
    UPDATED: Move along, nothing to see here. According to a Tweet from Microsoft corporate communications VP Frank Shaw the listing is just an innocuous "defensive domain name hold".[/p]

    Maybe some kind of collaboration, I don't think so though.
    It would be funny to see the reaction of the 14 year old fanboys for each company who hate on each other.

    You've got the PlayStation 3, which is devoting a lot of effort to the Move. You've got the 360 devoting all of the effort to the Kinect. And you've got the upcoming Wii U.

    Get splurging.

    Guys, the rumor of a possible merger or partnership between Microsoft and Sony has already been debunked.

    Read the source again.

    Even if this was true, all you will have is xbox games on PlayStation console or vice versa.

    That wouldn't be taking down Nintendo.


    Tbh, I see no reason for them to hold this.

    Plus where Microsoft-Nintendo then?

    Good to know.

    Even if it WERE real, it'd be more likely related to Windows Phone 7 on a Sony phone, or something similar. Sony and MS aren't just games companies, y'know?
