Microsoft only wants to offer its users access to platforms it can charge for as this is the model it is pursuing.
Why is it Microsoft can get away with charging for mediums you can get on other devices FOR FREE?
What we have here is essentially an awesome device, but we must pay a monthly service charge to unlock features we should get free of charge..
Last FM? Facebook? Twitter? All of these features should be free because they should have included a WEB BROWSER! They could easily tack one on especially
since they are the only console company with their own brand of Web browsers! Hell, nowadays 30 dollar cell phones come with them!
And Multiplayer? Xbox Live is the only Non-MMORPG that i can think of that makes you pay to play a game online. rubbish.
Its this kind of Micro$$$oft bull that makes me never want to buy a Microsoft product ever again. I'll NEVER buy Windows 7. Why pay 100-200 Dollars for a product that does absolutely nothing and is essentially a face lift? Anyone else watch those "Windows 7 was my Idea" ads and think "Hey, I can do all those things and more in Windows XP!"This post has been edited by Davek1013: Nov 28 2009, 08:01 PM
