For investors, the big question is how Microsoft's store compares. I'll be honest; I don't see a huge difference. Both are clean, open spaces, built to get customers playing with technology. Sony
But that's just my initial read. We won't know what customers think till the cash registers start ringing. I'll be back to report on that tomorrow.
