Yup, PS4 and XBox integration in one device. Now that's a hella fun phone to use, and I love playing both games from both companies.

Good move in the right direction. WP is 1000 times better than Android.

I will greet this topic with some skepticism to be honest. Sony, having broken off with Erickson, is in my opinion still finding its footing in the mobile sector. W8 OS is my opinion a great one, but still suffering from comparatively small apps offerings to Android or IOS. Sony is making some great mobile which I believe would require Sony's constant attention and support. In my opinion, it would be best to wait for a little while, best to consolidate on Android, then thereafter weight the W8P options.

Bad move Sony... I've been supporting Sony for so many years, if they really step into WP & abandon Android then Z1 might be my last phone from them.
