    And there we go with anti-communist propaganda talk.

    I've heard of enough of that from the govt.

    Everyone and every system is corrupt. Deal with that instead of making excuses.

    On the plus side with Steam, if that day comes, according to the rules of Steam, all the games become instant DRM unlocked and you own them completely. Which I remember this being one of the caveats EA had back when they started fighting with Valve.

    "Even as its proponents (read: game publishers only), claim increased sales, it faces strong opposition from the gaming community. "

    No opposition from me ... and no sales. Phuck them, if they are greedy and want to screw themselves up, let them ! The more people ignore their new console, the better.

    Multi-GPU design? I don't think so. There isn't any need for it. It would offer nothing in terms of power consumption, performance or cost.

    It's up to people whether or not they'd actually swallow whatever behemoths like Microsoft and Sony throws at them. We know companies like Nintendo wouldn't do such a thing, or at least I sure hope they don't.

    lolwut you have to be a "commie" if you have such ideals LOL

    Aahh, intellectual property. First created to protect big corporations and really doesn't help the "small guys" anyway. Specifically, first created to protect big corporations from stealing the property of almost always non-corporate entities.

    Yes, because a lot of PC games aren't doing the exact same thing...

    I honestly wouldn't mind this if Internet was super common... but people need to realize the USA is so far behind. The only internet you can get around here(I live out in the country on a ranch) is dial-up, or pay for $60+ for Satellite and get 512Kb down and 128Kb up and can only use 3GB a month.:banghead: Run a fiber cable to my home and I won't complain one bit.

    There will still be piracy and the honest customers will have pain in the ass. Also many people will play pirated games because it will be mush easier and you can play anytime you want

    This is really bad if true... 99.9% of the time I have internet connected, but what happens when there's a windy storm and the net drops out? Or if I want to take my console to someone's house without the internet... or if Microsoft's servers are temporarily down or if they eventually permanently stop support for Xbox 3.

    Relying on a working internet connection to play games is too restrictive and unreliable.
