    A buddy of mine was sub'd to gamefly for about a year. He would get the discs 4 games at a time, rip them to his pc, install a crack from a trusted site, and then gg. He has the full game.

    Then he sends the original game discs back, and gets 4 more.

    Need a mod'd console to play them, so he really can't sell the discs since 90% of kiddies don't know how to mod theirs. But still.. he owns almost every game in the 360 library.

    After reading more about the system. I truly believe the logic for all the extra features were geared at an entirely new market. Obviously the current gamers will continue to buy the new system to continue playing new games. But this system creates a new type of customer for the system. Someone could buy this purely for the TV and home entertainment abilities and never even buy a single game. The Internet linking and connection to cable box can provide homes with a better experience than a current smart TV.

    No reason to complain about this update to the system. It's all the stuff they are doing that hurts the gamers that truly sucks

    Which is why I don't do it. He get's a boner from having an entire systems catalog available.

    It's about the principal of snaking the system!

    This was from a reply on the Kotaku article on the AU site:

    Also the some of the higher ups in Sony are listening to a twitter campaign for no DRM on twitter.


    *this is all grain of salt stuff.

    For used games, but EA got rid of it. presumably for whatever is in store for XBone and PS4.

    It would be a ghetto day in hell if madden was Xbox exclusive... That's just ridiculous. Specially with the bullocks they are trying to do.. I'm imagining something will be changed about all of this before the details come out now. Madden unfortunately is my main reason for a gaming console.

    I stopped buying Madden a couple of years ago. No loss for me.

    EA is everything that is wrong with gaming. IF that exclusive license ever runs out with the NFL I hope 2K can match MLB The Show's quality. Best sports franchise available.
