I know you feel that Sony "wronged" you in the past, but the funny thing is that if I gave you something like "The Pepsi Challenge" and didn't put labels on the consoles, you'd likely fall head over heels for Sony.
Also, where do I get free tablets/phones to use for smartglass? You seem to imply that Vita costs money, but tablets and phones do not.
Lastly, next time you need a new laser, hit me up. They cost about $5 and take 10 minutes to swap out. Fwiw, I've replaced probably 10X as many Xbox lasers as Playstation ones.
You know I really wasn't bothered by the used game thing. I'm wavering on dropping Gamefly. I love the service but I'm having a hard time getting through games timely and might want to save the monthly cost but I for one was actually looking forward to the sharing. Ill be keeping it for a while now though.
Lets say this, I'm getting used to buying and forgetting. I can't sell or trade my Android, Apple, Steam, or console digital downloads. What microsoft was doing was the same thing as nearly every other digital capable device except offering sharing and gifting. This might have pushed other digital mediums to the same. Further, if they would have added a few things and made a friendly place for Gamestop/Gamefly on the digital front there is no reason rental places couldn't offer digital rentals like Netflix does movies.
What I called whiny bitches were the ones who can't see what an all digital future would be like and who resist change. I get this crap all the time at work...oh noes my Outlook send/receive button vanished, we need training to find it. :banghead:
Free phone no, but how many people already have one vs a Vita? I've got upwards of 2 iPhones, 2 Androids, an Android tablet, and an Apple tablet at my fingertips. That includes family in the household and work devices. I know I may be an exception but a great many people I know have a smart device. The ones I know without one don't normally game anyway. The smartglass app is nice free addition.
Yes, would love to get this PS3 fixed. Would get my wife and kid off my ass about watching bluerays!
Spyder and I are not arguing. He's got his opinion and I've got mine and this is how adults on an anonymous forum hash it out
I've been wrangling with this decision since BF4 on next gen was announced. Just laying out my reasoning for where I've gotten to. No need to hand out infractions. I don't take a differing opinion personally, on the contrary I listen and see what fits me. Besides were not name calling....yet
