Some things take time, and that's something which is almost a unrecognized taboo in modern culture (where everybody wants to hurry to their grave). The Nintendo 3DS had problems, the PSVita is starting to take of... and so will the WiiU. I am personally finished with consoles, but...if there was a console on my wanted-list, it would be this one. I am more into my PC these days, to be honest. But as a gamer from the 1980s, some of these changes Microsoft (and maybe Sony) are making to console gaming are quite scary. Online check-in once every 24 hours? You CAN lend a game to a friend, but only if they've been your "friend" for 30 days and you can only do it ONCE? A camera attached to your console that can honestly record whoknowswhat. Mandatory game installs, even if you bought them on disc? I mean... c'mon, guys, when are we going to stand up and vote with our wallets by not supporting this kind of stuff? I'm happier and happier with my Wii U purchase, with Nintendo seeming to be the only manufacturer who wants to keep its console focused on games the way they used to be: accessible and fun. I may only fire up my Wii U mostly for first-party exclusives, but boy am I glad that I'm supporting a company that's not trying to revamp the very fabric of what made console gaming great. And all of that that you are complaining about is already happening on PC games and has been happening for over 5 years... all of it. Online check ins every preset amount of time? Check Lending games to a friend? Actually forbidden on PC Used games? Actually forbidden on PC A company invading your privacy spying on everything you do and selling your personal information ? If you use google, you are on that bandwagon Mandatory game installs? Yup, been like that on PC the whole time. So how is all that problematic again? you said you were mostly on PC now so you are already dealing with far, far worse things than what Microsoft and Sony are doing with their next console. Game developer and gamer.
