Major convenience of the console is not having to go through all the fiddling wit OSs, game tweaking, system building and so on. You stick the disk in or download the game and you`re good to go.

On PC, not so much. Now, me and you might enjoy the voltage porn and having 7 different programs controlling the settings, but most of normal people don`t and I don`t blame them for it.

Other thing is, once you`re on the couch and have that big TV, visual fidelity is pretty good, bar the frame rates. But the funny thing is half of the PC master racers I know crank the settings so high up their fps are a joke too...so there you go.

Ah, Star Citizen, now here`s a funny one...

1) on one hand I do want the House Of Roberts to fold and burn, since it`s all a stinking long con scam deviltry
2) on the other, there is a remote possibility they will eventually make this happen, a la Project Cars. And if they did, it would be of course great to have a Hi-fi sci-fi PU to play with.

Dunno...on some days it`s 1), on others 2)

When added all together, Steam's "minor" inconveniences definitely become pretty damn big. The platform's success is due to how far it's grown and improved, not because gamers are lazy.
So you`re saying that some mad discounts - which is a Walmart-like tactic that can be as well harmful - plus a united collection is bigger than an actual right to own the product you paid for? Stop and think about that for a second, if it`s still true for you, then well, nothing really to discuss furthermore.

Of course we, as humans, are suckers for "convenience". I myself shop in big supermarkets (partially because there`s really no choice left) despite hating their operations - but I don`t lie to myself about that.

It really has nothing to do with the fact that we are lazy, it's the fact we are 100's of miles away from these organizations we are buying games from.

It`s really disheartening to see somebody on the same side of the fence using a lame argument like this. Say, if I hated Sony TV`s for some reason, does that mean I would have to travel to Japan to tell them that? Come on man.

Online protests do work, it`s the one thing the whole social media is good for.

If the smart half of the gaming community was within a couple blocks of major game companies we could force policy changes by venting our anger and complaints. Complaining from 100 miles away simply doesn't work. The rise of Steam/MMO's/DRM is all because companies are far away from us when they are pulling their criminal shit.

Huh? Microsoft was forced to backtrack on always-online BS because of the online uproar. Sure, it`s nice to have a demo outside their HQ, but this is online age and digital protests can be as effective.

Modern gamers are e-literate enough to fire an email or tweet or post on fb. And the real reason that, for example, we have Lord Gaben is because there`s no "smart half" of the gaming community - majority signed up for Steam, because of trivial crap like Half Life, firesales and "having it all in one place".

Simply put, people are more than willing to trade ownership for minor convenience and it`s a sad truth.

Point being, this is how it is done. It is how it will be done forever. Complaining about it is pointless.

Shame about the conclusion since the breakdown itself wasn`t too bad.

However the only reason "it will be done forever" is precisely because of the lack of "complaining". Gamers seem to be especially gullible somehow and this is why we`re being nickel and dimed as much as possible. But when we occasionally unite - somehow for a silly (ME3 ending) or not so silly (X1 online only) reason, change might happen.

I`m gutted even though I don`t play MMOs. But from what I read EQ Next sounded genuinely exciting and innovative. Such a shame another original project bites the dust.

Guess it means curtains for Planetside 2 in teh long (medium? short?) run. I was blown away by this game last year even though I hate f2p model and don`t play online shooters anymore. But P2 was something special.
