They're a company, not a family member. They don't owe anyone any loyalty and they're quite within their rights to buy up whatever other companies they want to make whatever products they feel like. That's business, stop having so much emotional attachment to it.
The the thing that strikes me as so ironic, not to mention baffles the hell out of me, is how people continually point out that the company in question has a right and obligation to look out for its own best interests, and in fact are even noble for doing so. But when a customer of that company, looking out for OUR best interests (i.e. PC gaming in this particular case), points out how they have negatively affected PC Gaming, we are being petty and short-sighted, or my favorite, "over-emotional" LOL!. Do you guys really think that we as consumers should always put the business interests first before our own interests? That is what absolutely baffles me.
