To the people taking part in this so called "war" and taking up arms against Microsoft, I ask you this: Why are you acting as though evil has been done? You know what Microsoft is? That's right, a business. They make a product and sell it to people. You are entitled to nothing, whether you like that product or not. It is up to whoever runs the business what they put out and how they put it out.
People are mostly angry at the fact that you need a constant internet connection to play. So what? You think they're obligated to cater for what you want? No, they're not. It doesn't matter if it's soldiers in Afghanistan or astronauts. It's their decision.
Shovel the vast amounts of sand out of your equally vast vaginas and keep your Xbox 360 if you hate it so much.
