Very true indeed

Why o why1207d ago (Edited 1207d ago )

the pc crowd, despite some of them being labelled elitist, stood together and told MS to eff off when they were told to pay for live. ms got the message quick. Us console owners are way to weak when it comes to standing up for our principles to the point we actually make excuses for these companies to shaft us. With the pc crowd Ms had no choice but to listen and drop the fees....to appease whoever they upped the live charges down the line for the xbox guys, what did we do....FOLD...lmao, and [email protected] for folding too just for the sake of sky player #ourownblood4lube

Well said my friend very well said.

Us PC Gamers don't take crap from No One, we have a voice and power that Devs, Pubs, etc. respect.

Now as far as always Online Drm/ always on it really NO big deal.

consoles are gonna get so many MMO's next Gen that your gonna be constantly connected to a server anyway.

I stuck to it and ironically the 360 games I was most interested in were generally SP games. Ex. Mass Effect, Alan Wake, Tales of Vesperia, The Witcher 2 and so on.

"Now as far as always Online Drm/ always on it really NO big deal."

Rumors suggest an internet connection will be required for the console to even function. If you want to play a single player game with no multiplayer and/or dlc like Bioshock for example, or watch a movie. You cannot do this without being connected.

That's very different from all devices out there (consoles, pc's, phones, tablets) that still function perfectly if there is no internet access.

I think people find that strange.

Obviously, everyone saying "I'm jumping ship" were never going to get the next Xbox to start with. If they were considering getting one they would have the common sense to wait to hear from MS.

MariaHelFutura1207d ago

Stop being so sour and just deal with it. :]

I fully intended to get the next Xbox but if the always on rumour is true, then simply put, I cannot get it as I'm one of the unlucky ones who lives in an area with somewhat unreliable internet. So I'm forced to switch to Sony. I'm not the only person in this boat so if the rumour is true I expect other people will be forced to switch too.

Not every reaction is a result of fanboy love. Sometimes reactions are the result of common sense and logic. For me common sense says I can't spend a few hundred bucks on something that won't work properly unless the government release more funding for telecommunications to sort out rural internet issues.

It's gonna be accepted because comments made by people on gaming forums don't represent the average gamer outside of cyber space...

Godmars2901207d ago

Sadly, this is true.

But it would be nice if even in the face of such, some held to their convictions.

NastyLeftHook01207d ago

here is the truth.

people have a voice, but very few use it. and those who do make real world changes.

nothing any person on a computer is going to do will ever change the real world.

and the truth is that i know many people who want a playstation 4 who only own 360's. they dont say "im jumping ship" they just want one because in the real world there gamers.
