So who’s side are you on Sony? The Empire or the Rebellion?!
In order for Sony to qualify as a honorary member of the Rebel Alliance alongside the brave Nintendo Ltd. Co it has to fall under a certain criteria. I’ve taken the liberty of spelling out just a few, below…
1) Less Expensive than the Xbox One
2) Absolutely no DRM
4) No Internet connection required
5) Focus on hard copy games, and no download exclusives.
6) If there is a focus on download exclusives, a removable hard drive.
If all of these requirements are me, with the exception of “1” because we can’t demand the world of an expensive system; I will be forced to forego all Sony products until they get their act together.
It seems to be becoming clearer that Sony and Microsoft met behind closed doors and are now trying to scum out their consumer base in the name of ‘the developers’. However, these new DMR cloud based regulations imposed by the Xbox One are militant to say the least and will not be tolerated in my home. I hope you feel the same. Because together is the only way that we’ll force these companies to not strip the consumer, those who pay for their fat checks, of what little rights we have.
“I am altering the deal. Pray I don’t alter it any further.”
The Xbox One will be 500 dollars, games are estimated to cost over $70.00, and they expect us to accept a licencing clause which allows them to alter the agreement and possibly shut down the servers allowing us to play even single player modes! –Without a fight? Well, they wouldn’t try if they didn’t have faith in our own ignorance and need to horde all thing elite. (See Apple TOS)
Don’t be ignorant, don’t break and waste your money just to play Halo 5… and then later find out that in 2020 you can’t play Halo 5 anymore because the ‘Xbox 2.0’ is the new system and the One’s servers have shut down. Because make no mistake, that is what you’re agreeing to. If Sony wants to walk that wire with them, if they want to assist in cornering the market, answer back with a sick PC gaming rig and the access to better and improving graphics, the ability to fix kinks in the game play, and a library of licensed games that are already cheaper than what the consoles have to offer… many of which are exactly the same! All of this can be yours for the amount of money you’d be poring into the One or the PS4, anyway.
Till next time, tell me what you think of this whole fiasco? Where do you think Sony will fall tonight, June 10, at their E3 media briefing.
