Daily Game - Microsoft supported HD-DVD with Xbox 360 to avoid royalties to Sony. With Xbox One, it could pay royalties to Apple for every sale due to Kinect technology.
Yup, nothing seems to be working out for good.
Sony - hardware Microsoft - software Microsoft pay every xbox one sold(blu-ray) Sony pay every laptop(that comes with Windows)
PUBLISHER'S UPDATE: Microsoft's new Xbox One Kinect sensor was created entirely in-house and did not use PrimeSense technology. Therefore, the Redmond-based company would not need to pay royalties or licensing to any entity based on sales of the Xbox One Kinect hardware.]
Microsoft also pays Sony a royalty for every Xbox One sold (Blu-Ray playback licensing, DVD playback licensing), and Sony also pays MS a royalty for every PS3 and PS4 sold (VC-1 video codec for Blu-Ray playback, as well as WMA and WMV support).
"May"..."could& quot;...I love these articles that are set out to give bad press to a company. Now this whole article is updated turning out to be false. But people will be commenting on this for the entire life of the X1 how they have to pay Apple for every X1 they sell...which is just on a hunch that is now false.
