Re: E3 2013
I think PS+ is still a good deal, it's cheaper than live and comes with free games, what's not to like? Demon's Souls alone this month would be worth the entry fee. I don't play much online with my PS, so I don't mind but I can understand why people get upset. I'm playing the rare occasions I do play online on pc and apart from mmorpg that has always been free, once I bought the game.
I'm still not sure what happened in the corporate brain of microsoft regarding used games and drm. I guess they thought publishers appreciate their proactive disregard for consumers for sheer corporate greed. I also guess they expected some localized outcry which goes over quickly and not such widespread anger and Sony 'winning' E3 by virtue of not making things noticeably worse for consumers.
Currently playing: XCOM: Enemy Within (PC), Gran Turismo 5 (PS3)
