  • Good evening weekend confirmers, as always your fantastic show completes me!

    I apologise for the rant but...

    I consider myself a 360 gamer.

    I'm lucky enough to own a PS3 & a powerful gaming PC and, don't get me wrong, regularly enjoy gaming on both but the majority of my favourite experiences this generation have been on 360.

    I got one at launch and fondly remember bouncing down the high street with a belly full of butterflies on my way home from the store, I could barely contain my excitement at the thought of playing HD games on my recently purchased LCD tv. Microsoft changed the face of socially interactive gaming through Xbox live on the 360 and I will always be grateful for them leading the way in that... At the time no one realised Live would be overrun by facist teens... so it pains me immensely that they decided to go down the path they did.

    I can't help but feel betrayed by the way they decided to hit their most passionate customers with restrictions so severe they'd be prohibited in Guantanamo.

    I understand them feeling short changed by the second hand market, what I find unacceptable is deciding that, rather than searching for compensation from the major drivers of the market they should squeeze more out of their staunchest supporters. Is it really easier to force millions of your customers to licence their games rather than ask retailers to apply for licences to sell second hand games? I doubt it, to me it just goes to show how much they valued my custom.

    Needless to say I voted with my wallet and went out and pre-ordered my PS4, as did the majority of my Xbox live friends list.

    I wasn't surprised by the U-turn but for me the damage is already done... if you bought me a pint after shitting in the one I was holding I probably wouldn't accept it... If its that simple a change to implement what's preventing them from flipping the switch back??

    I like the thought that I could go into my loft, take down my dreamcast and play the copy of powerstone I own without realising that my 'licence' had expired!

    I purchase most major titles on day one but, in order to do that while continuing to support my family, I need to recycle the money in my gaming budget.

    I would be very grateful to hear the teams opinions on these topics during the next show.

    Kind regards,
