This is a myth.

That's not an example of abuse of the system, it's an example of the system working in just about the only way it can work.
People wouldn't be willing to buy clothes online if they couldn't send back what didn't fit or look good on them.
No, "This product doesn't look as good as it did in the airbrushed picture on your website."
I've never heard of it happening either.
The article states that customised items aren't covered by this law and I'd have thought that laptops with optional extras like an SSD would be in that category.
It's specifically to cover buyer's who are purchasing items that they cannot physically see at the point of sale.
Many people don't need choices and features like those things.
Nobody buys a console because they find the internal architecture interesting.
Contributing towards the infrastructure that allowed the company and the shareholders to get to their positions of wealth in the first place is doing them a dis-service...? If you don't like the amount of tax a corporation pays, due to their corporate structure, petition your government to close the loophole.
You seem oddly concerned with stopping people from criticising what Apple are doing here.
If I slept with your wife, would you listen to those who told you to stop moaning about it and begin petitioning for adultery to be made illegal?
No, it's what some people have taken it to mean.
And what public statements are you referring to? All I've seen is computer game journos writing articles about something they heard on Twitter.
The 'point' of a console is that it allows you to shove a small, simple device under your TV and play games.
And a controller is fine for FPS games. I can play Halo as easily as I can play BF3 on the PC with a mouse and keyboard.
There's too much hysteria about this. I've not seen anything that suggests 'always on' is 'your console won't work if it isn't connected all the time'.
The Dualshock is an awful controller, and the sticks are in an unnatural place.
I don't really understand what you mean about flipping the sticks around - I've never had a problem changing the controls over.
Um, it's a bit of an exaggeration to say that the crash was caught on camera.
So on the issue of whether splitscreen gaming is fun or not, you're willing to speak on behalf of developers, publishers, and Cronocloud, but not yourself.
Who would buy a system without games? If there aren't enough developers making worthwhile split-screen games, then gamers won't feel willing to buy the hardware needed for split-screen games, such as multiple gamepads or a separate gaming PC for the TV room.
So despite millions of people spending millions of hours playing games split screen, they should all base their opinion on what the developers/publishers think about it...?
If you couldn't find any real-life friends to play a particular FPS with you, then what would you do next?
What does that have to do with it? I said that splitscreen works fine for FPS games, not that it is the perfect panacea for all possible scenarios.
If my Internet went down, I wouldn't be able to play online. That doesn't mean online gaming is crap.
