Sony executive takes dig at Microsoft, highlights consistent 'fair' policies

Sony executive Andrew House has maintained his company's defensive and snide attitude towards Microsoft by criticising inconsistent Xbox One DRM policies on stage at Gamescom 2013. During their press conference earlier today in Germany, House swiped Microsoft with a relatively direct insult:

While others has shifted their message and changed their story, we were consistent in maintaining a message that is fair and in tune with consumer desires, We strove to deliver a platform that delivers both power and great value. And the response we’ve received has been nothing short of incredible.

This strongly suggested that users should trust a platform which makes the right choice from day one, rather than one led by a company that 'flip-flops'.  He was met by cheers from the audience, most of which may already have their hearts set on the PlayStation 4, which is set to be released on November 15th in the US

Microsoft originally defended their controversial used game policy which restricted the sharing of games, but quickly retracted this policy following a considerable outcry from gamers.

Sony have a reputation of insulting Microsoft's Xbox One, notably at E3 where it announced that it would allow users to share games, and even released a video demonstrating the process, where one person hands the disc to another.
