I'm arguing that blaming Snowden is an idiotic statement because nothing he did would have compromised their ability to intercept the messages in question. They likely did intercept the messages but failed to flag/escalate them in time to do anything about it or knew about it and chose to do nothing since France was not a very forthcoming intelligence partner prior to the attacks.

From the article? Yes. The "60 titles identified in the marketing material" include titles that that were voted on by users to be included AFTER the initial release, if possible.

BioShock 2
BioShock Infinite
Call of Duty: Black Ops
Halo: Reach
Halo Wars
Skate 3

All arrive in December's compatibility update.

The real question is why someone could ever pay a flat fee for an infinite resource. It was obvious that could never last.

The people that scream the loudest about it, are of course the ones abusing the system and hastening its demise...

In Canada we've had this discussion ad nausium. The reality is that data transfer is dirt cheap (penies per gb) and that once wholesalers were mandated on the incumbents networks all the sudden unlimited became possible again and cheap ($10-15 more than 400GB capped plans). Before the wholesalers the incumbents cried poor/congestion/the sky is falling and caps kept getting smaller/prices higher.

Never say you know a man until you have divided an inheritance with him.
