@#71 Yeah. I agree. I was just saying that because a lot of people are freaking out and acting like this would be the end-all platform. I don't think it could be. Plus we want the competition. It breeds better games granted it also makes it difficult for fresh ideas and independent thought. Also I live in BFE and my connection could be better so I worry if something like this would suck in my area as far as downloading. I like your way of thinking though. I would by twice as many games each year if the prices dropped by $15-$20. I know that's not happening soon but your point is valid.
MP achievements are almost always commercial. Meaning, they are added with the specific intent of keeping the player from selling or trading in the game. That's a bad for just about everyone except for the company.
