First of all, Excellent video and I completely agree.
Actually Rizwan you are wrong in saying that. On the PC you have the freedom to do whatever you want. There are A LOT MORE than just steam and Origin.
- Amazon has DRM free and that means you can download it on any pc and as many times as you like.
- Gamersgate has many DRM Free games.
- GOG only has DRM Free games.
There are so so many more. You should know this as Gengis keeps going on about it. I am a PC gamer if I choose to use Steam it's because I know what I want and I know I won't be giving it to anybody else.
I do however have a PS3 and I buy the games and if I don't like it, I sell it and buy something second hand. I haven't got one new game on my PS3 they are all second hand because the prices are ridiculous compared to the PC. In fact even on second hand they are ridiculous compared to the PC.
The PC will always be better when it comes to DRM (Download Rights Management) and cheaper when it comes to pricing as well. The PC is cheaper compared to the consoles, because the amount of money you spend on the console for the controllers and all the accessories and games will add up to being more expensive than the PC. If you know how to build your own computer you will always get things cheaper.
Having said that, I CHOOSE to use Steam, Origin, Gamersgate and Amazon. Most of my games are on steam, but does that mean that I accept the limitations provided in the new console? Absolutely not, I am the one making the choice, they will not make the choice for me. I refuse to buy any console that ties ALL games to one account.
The console for me is a casual thing for me, when friends or family are over we play a bit of street fighter or something and maybe they want to bring their own games over to play. That is the freedom of console.
I grew up on the Nintendo, Super Nintendo and Sega Mega Drive. I used to trade games and borrow games on a regular basis with my mates. That's the best thing about having a console, if you take that away... you will have nothing left if you ask me.
I outright REFUSE to buy the console if it has that limitation. I am 100% with TheVisualante
I would rather play old school only games like the ps3 and super nintendo and stuff then buy any of the locked down ones.
