This is my issue with OP's comment. Any time I hear someone say, "Kids these days" or "People are more selfish than they used to be" I cringe a little. People have been horrible to each other all along. We should be vigilant of cheaters; but implying that cheating wasn't rampant in the past is shortsighted at best.

I'm not sure that I agree with you. While I do not have any experience with th Zune, (but have heard great things about Marketplace)the X-Box 360 is NOT a quality product. It has a failure rate above every console ever released, the max graphical capability is above the Wii but well below the PS3, and it's online play costs the consumer money.

AO does NOT mean that the game cannot be released. It means that most retailers will not sell it in the store. This kills the profit of the game if it can only be sold in porn shops and mom and pop's who wish to seel it. Also, and I may not be 100% correct here but, I think that I read that neither Sony nor Nintendo will allow an AO game on their platform.

The other line moves faster.
