back to article Domain name claim teases Sony-MS partnership

Microsoft has allegedly registered "Microsoft-Sony.com" as well as "Sony-Microsoft.com" in a move that could mean the two giants are about to go into business together.

My old Vaio had Windows and Office installed.

Yet I still can't get GT5 for my Xbox360. ;)

Common ground for the company?

Well they both hate users installing Linux beside their OSs.

Their internet products have been exploited security-wise.

Not likely

Aren't Sony just bringing out some Android pads?

Doesn't seem very likely.

"As for the Microsoft and Sony collaboration, I won't hold my breath."

SonyEricsson

has net debt of €252m at the end of June. Prior to iPhone launch it had +€2.2Bn in the bank. SonyEricsson isn't long for this world if it keeps on trying to flog Android devices.

Right now Microsoft would look a very inviting partner to SE if Microsoft, as with Nokia, throws billions of dollars at SonyEricsson. SE are desperate for additional loans to keep them afloat, why go to a bank when you can go to Stevie B instead?

" Only way to beat the Wii U, you reckon?"

Given that the PS3, and even the Xbox have both vastly outperformed the Wii in terms of games this gen, I don't think either will have any trouble next gen.

Nintendo have a couple of well-trodden franchises and everything else is utter shit.

Bit of a shame when you look at it in terms of sales and bums on seats though.

While I am sure that console vendors love to have great content to crow about, I'm pretty sure that they'd happily forego it in exchange for a stonking increase in sales volume and a few more millions in the bank.

If it was a domain squat..

Who would get to take ownership of it after the court case - M$ or Sony? There's only one way to find out!
