My friend put up an interesting quote on facebook today in relation to this subject.
To quote one of the top comments:"this is not just about being able to play games, it's about a company that was trying to control your freedom as a consumer. Would you still vote for a president who was in favor of slavery and suddenly changed his mind afraid of loosing popularity?"
Microsoft royally screwed up and turned a lot of people off, myself included. If I do purchase one of the next gen consoles its going to be a PS4. I've been a die hard 360 guy since its release but with all this recent stuff I think I'll avoid the XBone for a while, maybe I'll pick one up off of craigslist a few months after a release.
