For people who don't know how to reinstall an OS, it's a daunting task. Especially on laptops, where you need to worry about drivers. Because of that, many users are limited to asking for help from a tech support company, such as geek squad or similar... and that can cost a couple hundred dollars. Almost the price of a new computer.

Comment EVE/Dust514 (Score 1) 57

This is unexpected, as Sony systems had not only the first example of crossplay, but also the most interesting. Eve/Dust514. Two different MMOs, set in the same persistant universe, that could interact with each other. (The interaction is admittedly limited, but it is there.) I would have expected a company to pioneer not just once, but twice to remain open. I guess I was wrong.

Due to the way cellular networks work, there can only be so much TOTAL bandwidth per tower, it's not as if you each have your own dedicated wire.

Because of this, if usage goes up, then there will have to be stronger restrictions.

Note: this is only true for cellular networks. Restrictions over internet that comes via wire can suck a big one.
