but, you just took the time to do so yourself:No that has always been pointless, it's pointless today and will always be pointless. People won't stop buying games because of that. It's very naive and unrealistic to think it will make a difference.
i mean, if you think i'm wasting my time doing so, then why even bother mentioning this? aren't you also just pointlessly acknowledging here the existence of sleaze, knowing it also won't make any difference?...MS did the exact same thing in the 360 gen. They always use the install base advantage for this things.
It's still less sleazy then a trillion dollar company buying a 70bn publisher to "be able to compete" with a 100bn company.
which, as i say, i'm fine with. &, again: i'm not saying, or even implying, that 'it will make a difference'. but, y'know, if the only things we, as a species, were to acknowledge or discuss were those things where we could actually 'make a difference', we'd quickly become very dull, boring, & lifeless...
