Anyone agree that MS with their unreliable 50%+ failure rate excuse of a games console with subscription online gaming has ruined gaming? They made subscription gaming the standard. This follows on from the embrace, extend and extinguish strategy that MS always follows. They made paid DLCs the standard. They made micro payments the standard. The popularity of Xbox LIVE means that dedicated servers are dying out everywhere, even on PC. They have made 50%+ failure rate the standard. Every console maker will realise that people don't care about hardware reliability. They have made proprietory hardware addons the standard. I mean would you be happy if Apple forced to buy only Apple RAM and HD for atrocious prices for the sake of "stability"? Everyone should boycott MS and their cheap console. PS3 while slightly expensive is like a Mac. It's better built and more reliable with lower total cost of ownership than the cheap MS hardware.
