    I can tell you a market they lost that they probably didn't think of......

    deployed military

    Our shop had a 360, and almost every shop I can think of had one when they were deployed. That is a decent amount of consoles that will not be sold for that reason alone. Not to mention people who don't have reliable internet and the few responsible parents that won't allow their children online.

    Also, non-upgradable internal hard drive = stupid considering all games are installed.

    now thinking about it.....

    I didn't have the internet at all when I was in the military, most people who lived in the barracks didn't have it either. This is just a stupid move all together.

    I really have a hard time believing they'll go through with the always online thing - even if that's what the reports are saying. It doesn't make sense.

    But like I said, not a big deal to me, personally.

    It's to prevent piracy. I would say the publishers would be pressuring them to do it.

    Well yea, Facebook sucks. Its audience is 13-22 year olds - and cougars.

    Haven't had that sh*t for two years and life has been grand since I stopped using it.

    If Facebook had an "it sucks" button, I would've kept it - because 99% of statuses are flat out awful and deserve to be torn a new one. And believe me, I was the social assassin who commented on people's statuses until they wised up and deleted them. I at least had fun with Facebook and f*cked with people, while everyone else spilled their guts and whined like a little school girl b*tch. I had a lot of people remove me from their friends list. Some would say that's a bad thing, but nah it was hilarious.

    Clown posts a long status about passing all his classes this semester. He says "Passed all my classes. 2 C's and 3 D's." I respond "That's awful, and no one cares."

    Same guy posts about the last survivor of Titanic dying at age 100 something. I get in there before anyone can respond and say "who cares"... That comment gets like 10 likes and he deletes me from his friends list.

    Steelers fan posts after losing Super Bowl to Packers. I respond "HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Steelers suck."

    Good times, but I enjoy not having to check Facebook for dumb notifications... God forbid I take 12 hours to get back with you. Some people were just unreal. And my friend's current girlfriend gets mad at him for not posting on her wall enough - even though they see each other every damn day and when they're apart, they're on the phone nonstop. "Baby, you don't ever respond to my wall posts." I dare a girl to ever say that to me. I'm not lacking in the bulge, so I have no issue never speaking to her again.

    Also when I deactivated my account, it asked me why... I said "Zuckerberg's a douche."

    F*ck Zuckerberg. That tw*t can suck it.

    Facebook "sucks"?

    Facebook is merely a social site. If it sucks, it's probably for reasons unrelated to the site itself.


    Yes, I'm saying you have no friends. The only people I know without facebook are weirdos that build bombs in their basements... and Titans Eternal.

    Well, actually a lot of my friends started to get rid of their Facebooks once they grew out of it. I don't see the point in having one if I have your number.

    Only good thing it ever did for me was reconnect me with some family... but now I keep in touch with them on my phone.

    There's no point in having a Facebook. I like Twitter though.

    Facebook is just fkn annoying when people just post photos of their kids or statuses about their kids and how they "fell over" or "OMG [baby] just woke up!"

    Who. Gives. A. ****.
