    Hey when Microsoft goes out of business I will be there to say I told you so.

    Considering they're about to finally flip the switch in the computer world, that'd be quite the prophecy.

    Most things Microsoft suck.


    Well, except the Zune. Zune HD was way better than iPod, but since everyone was in their "iPOD RULES! MICROSOFT SUX!" stage, they never knew.

    This is very true... they will be able to continue to sell used games for all consoles... except the Xbox 1.

    Aside from a couple of games, I don't buy new. Granted, I'm not a big gamer... only reason I bought a PS3 was because my friend I play with online had one - and I only bought it about a year ago.

    So, I'm not a gamer... these console wars aren't directed at me. However, from a business side of this, MS is damn lucky the Xbox is merely a division of the company that won't ever die or go away. Sony, on the other hand, is fortunate... their media division is struggling a tad - electronics and what-not.

    But, comparing only these divisions of these gigantic companies... PS4 > Xbox 1 - AT THE MOMENT. Until released, MS could contain this fire... but they haven't really done a very good job of it so far... damage control is bad.

    That is like studying for a test when you already have the answers.

    I was curious... the Xbox must "always be on," so does that mean you have to have an account? XBL is subscription based, right? So... if this is the case, you'd need a paid subscription to own the system?

    Not a huge deal for those with strong internet, as I'm sure a majority of them would get an account, regardless...
