It's the fact that if your internet is down for more than a day, you can't play, if you ever want to take your system somewhere and you can't connect for whatever reason, you can't play. You cannot borrow/rent games anymore. And even if someone signs in with their profile for you to play the game, it goes to every hour online as opposed to every 24. But as soon as you are back on your profile, you have to buy the rights to play the game.
To each their own I suppose. I just don't want to throw money away because I have it.
If Sony comes out and doesn't have these ridiculous restrictions, there is no reason to stick with Xbox.
In the past, I don't know how many years, the only time my internet, in any of the last 3 or 4 places I've at, has gone down was when the power was also out. I'm not real worried about it.
I don't take my PS3 or 360 on trips. They stay home.
If publishers allow someone to borrow or trade in or rent or whatever games, great. I don't do a lot of borrowing, trading or renting. Not a lot of problems for me.
I'd be throwing my money away if I didn't intend to game and bought a gaming system. If I buy a new console, I'll be gaming.
