No doubt MS's reputation with consoles has a black eye over this incident. Fuck law suits, the real power the consumer has is when he takes his money elsewhere.
True. But where do you go? Sony already incorporated the same clause into their contract, while PC gaming is again controlled by... Microsoft. Technically you could opt for Linux or Mac... but their gaming selection is negligible, while Apple has questionable ethics at best. You've got Nintendo but their console can't even handle 720p. Even outside of gaming you have every major company harvesting personal information and selling it on to advertisers.

I agree with the sentiment but the only real option is for government intervention, otherwise you'd have to give up gaming entirely. There should be consumer groups that push issues like this onto mainstream news / opinion shows, combined with social media campaigns to hit companies like Microsoft financially. Instead, this will barely even register anywhere and companies will continue to abuse consumers.
