    So? The PS4 will consist of plenty of technology not founded by Sony

    If Sony owns part of Blu-ray and Microsoft have a Blu-ray player they will benefit in some sense, if Sony makes the PS4 and it does not have any parts that are made by Microsoft then this is a good thing for Sony .

    I've got my doubts about that being true, to be honest. For all we know, they did consider it but scrapped it soon afterwards lol. Of course they won't say so to keep a better reputation, though.

    It's hardly going to help or benefit them, if at all. Samsung is pretty much the only one that will profit from the Blu-ray player on the next Microsoft console. Sony will just look from afar and think "wellp, there goes one of my most important advantages, back to the drawing board".

    But they're not the ones getting the money. It's not a bad thing since they're not paying anything, but it's not a good one since they most likely won't get anything either.

    Well, even if they did consider it and told us that, they can at the very least brag about them actually listening to the consumer. I think it's a rational decision anyways so I'll be a happy camper.

    That's something we'll never know for sure, though. For all we know, they never considered our opinion but thought it wouldn't be financially wise . Afterall, this would've been thought of and discussed before the huge backlash against Microsoft.

    If I recall correctly, they're Samsung's.
