Sony Pokes Fun at Microsoft’s Ever-Changing Xbox One Policies

During Sony’s press conference at Gamescom earlier, Sony President and Group CEO Andrew House shot a little poison dart in Microsoft’s direction.
He was talking about how cool the PS4 is, “cool things, blah blah, neat ideas we’re great,” then here’s the dart:
“This means that great game worlds will be more ubiquitous, powerful and accessible than ever before. And while others have shifted their message and changed their story, we were consistent in maintaining policies and a model that is fair and in tune with consumer desires.”
It’s in the above trailer at about 00:35.
He’s not wrong. Microsoft did change their Xbox One policies. But does that really matter? They changed their policies for the better, remember?
What do you guys think? Is Microsoft’s change in course something you see as a weakness, or a strength? What about in comparison to Sony, which has been clear and consistent in its message all along — but also let Microsoft take a lot of the risks, and then responded afterward?
