Honestly what the hells up with this flame war? Who the hell cares buy one or don’t big deal? The point of arguing is to swing someone to your way of thinking not disprove there way of thinking.
I’ve got to disagree with a couple of points here. First, there are many reasons why people might discuss issues they care about. Sometimes it might be to sway opinion, but other times it is to raise awareness, to vent, or simply because the discussion is valuable in and of itself, without any specified outcome.
Second, “Who the hell cares buy one or don’t big deal” is a counterproductive attitude to have. Companies like Microsoft count on attitudes like that when they come up with plans to strip consumers of their rights and redefine ownership in their favor. They count on people to shrug their shoulders and say “big deal” and they count on those people to silence others by saying “who the hell cares.” It’s not helpful. Attitudes like yours are what allows corporations to shit all over consumers and take away our rights. If you want to let that happen without a fight, fine, but I for one am going to speak up.
There is one reason why so many of us are so adamantly opposed to this in such a loud, blunt, and outspoken manner. Microsoft or any other company watching, should not be allowed to think they can get away with this kind of stuff. I don’t want to be some “console warrior fanboy”, but I want to see the Xbox One fail. Not because I dislike microsoft or something silly like that, but because if it is successful, then Microsoft and other companies will think that it is okay to trample all over our consumer rights. The DRM in the Xbox One is anti-consumer bullshit, that anyone who isn’t a corporate apologist should never be defending if they are a consumer. We should not take this lying down. We need to fight back loudly against these kinds of practices, so that our rights as consumers do not get infringed again and again in the future, as much or as little as they are with the Xbox One.
