Sadly my 360 stopped playing DVDs. The drive still works, but for some reason the DRM is broken so I can't watch movies on it anymore.

Especially so since it's 'pop' to hate on Microsoft (or any big company) while accepting the very same from other sources (Steam, anyone?).

The new Xbox One – what we lost and why it matters | Games | Geek.com
Apparently we are just idiots then?. I mean how could we possibly see what they are trying to do and still not be prepared to accept what they were forcing down our throats?. Are you telling me these people that I have no doubt are being paid mega bucks could not devise a system to keep those features in place yet still allow people to have a choice?.

How dare the peasants want to have their cake and eat it to...

That's a nice theory, but that's all it is.

That still doesn't make you cool, geezer :P

Overall, people will get what they want to get. The most of the popular games will be multi-platform. Some exclusives may make one seem like the ideal one to get, but that's only if you're left out from your friends. I jumped off the Halo bandwagon after Halo 2 came out, and how terrible Xbox Live kids acted toward everyone. I don't need to play a game and be forced to have to go through everyone and select mute, and was very tired of listening to 12 year olds cussing at me.

This also pushed me to only playing single player games on consoles. I also enjoy a lot of JRPGs and a lot more of them are on the playstations.

Just a quick one, Does anyone know if the pay to play online for the new PS4 (you know now required to have PS+ to play online) will also affect the PS3 online?

No it's only for PS4, online for PS3 remains free.
