Hi Ian,

Regarding captioning; a guess is that Valve’s long-time support for [CC] have played an important part. Especially with Valve's move to both Linux and Steam Machine, I think MS and Sony feel they have to do the same for their respective platforms.

> Take the one real accessibility consideration that they've made so far, highly detailed customisation of how subtitles/captions are displayed (for PS3/4 it affects videos only, for XB360/1 the settings are actually available for game devs to access, although no dev has ever used them). That's quite an unusual thing to have implemented given the general lack of accessibility everywhere else.
