In Response To: Re: Food for thought... (General Vagueness)

: It looks to me like there is something I can do about it, or rather something
: we can do about it. Besides, I said I don't digital distribution by MS on
: consoles. I've accepted it on PCs with Steam, because I trust Valve more
: (I don't trust them absolutely, but more than MS) and on PCs it's easier
: and more convenient to examine and make copies of files and data.

: It being digital distribution, right? Without a legal change or a very
: different approach from what most companies do I won't welcome it for the
: most part, especially for things that are proprietary to the company that
: runs the distribution service and things that cost more than a cheap meal.
: If you want people to get with the wave of the future, it looks like you
: might have to come up with a supporting argument, and regardless, saying
: you don't need to defend your position because what you want/like/approve
: of is inevitable is... well it doesn't seem that good (it sounds like a
: logical fallacy but I'm not sure).

For you it will be an unwelcome insidious encroachment into your world of console gaming. You may be giving up a lot moving to PC but I don't have a crystal ball for that. I'd only move to PC gaming when the PC became as standardized as consoles. It may well happen.

For me digital distribution on consoles will be like a breath of fresh air.
