The following video is from The Motley Fool's weekly Tech Review, in which host Chris Hill talks all things tech with Fool analysts Eric Bleeker and Lyons George.
This week, Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) announced a reversal of its position regarding its upcoming Xbox One console, which will no longer be DRM-restricted. Consumers had long been expressing that they would be dissatisfied with having DRM restrictions in the console, and while initially Microsoft had taken a stance in defense of the feature, the major momentum shifts in favor of competitor Sony (NYSE:SNE) with its upcoming new iteration of its PlayStation have finally pushed Microsoft into this reversal. Did the shift come too late for the Xbox One to regain lost traction? In this video, Lyons and Eric discuss the gaming-console competitive landscape, and which of these two companies holds the advantage at the moment.
