seriously thinking of switching back to xbox 360 due to cinavia

So i guess everytime playstation comes out with update, more of an force update or you cant condone in the ps network, it seem as if they come up with some sneaky restriction. Im just sick of paying money for sony to police my system. Really dont bother to come out with a product that give you the option to have things like movies and show and the internet if you have retriction


For christ sake update your flash player

I would like to learn more about your disappointments with the PS 3, because I'm planning to buy one this week, but if I find some persuasive arguments to switch for the Xbox 360, my money is not out of my wallet yet....

Like, can you list what restrictions you've had to put up with since you bought the console?


I googled "cinevia" and there seem to be some simple workarounds, like disconnecting from the Internet before playing your video..  ..

Plus dont forget MS has abandoned the core gamer in favor of the Kinect gamer.If it wasnt for third party support xbox would just be another wii.

 

I like how MS raises the subscription fee to give money to activision..Like activision needs more money.Makes the customer foot the bill.So whether or not you play their games you give them your money.

 

Good luck with the junk box.

Especially when they came up with some stupid graph about how over 60% of xbox users are playing a COD game, they came to the justification that EVERYONE's subscription fee should be raised $5, so that $5 can secretly go to activision. Even those who have NEVER played an activision or cod game.....

 

this is why I stopped using my xbox and let my brother take it over

Logic, who would've thought eh? Oh wait.... No one thinks anymore.

I don't like how PS3 System Updates are always for the worse. The redesigned PS Store is one thing, but moving the trophy tab to Network (instead of under Game) and made it run super duper slow was a good example of poor forced PS updates
