...so why should he believe in us? I don't take advice from him. You guys are killing people by not doing what I want. Right. Safety versus freedom, blah blah blah slashdot modmedown call me a troll, i'm practically falling asleep from boredom after reading these comments.
Because Gog and Humble aren't really contenders, even though they both have made inroads with publishers regarding the publication of new games? Okay, if you want to think that to feel good about your console purchases, fine. Tell yourself it's less DRM.
SuperKendall, can you tell us why digital isn't always better? I just want to see if you can say it.
I agree with your DRM observation, but you really aren't paying close attention to the "evolution" of the PC if you think there's no way to do it there.
Sounds like you've started listing project requirements. Do you work for Sony? Maybe you should. I bet you want to.
...if I didn't have this feeling that Sony is going to open up all of their content to PC walled garden customers running compatible hardware. The reek of stagnation is all over this crippled-PC-based console market.
Agreed. I see zero improvement here. Embrace your will-restraining lobotomizer, too, SuperKendall. It's super high-tech.
Well? Where are you, Apple proxies who are Slashdot "community members"? No comment? This guy sure sounds like he knows what he's talking about. I think I may give up iPhone permanently based on this. I'm not kidding. Bet I'm not alone. If you want to keep your hipster base, Apple, the stuff you say is good has to be good in _some_ way. This looks like a shit idea done for shit reasons in service of some shitty DRM master plan that's certain to drive away all quality loving snobs, and the big fat icing on the cake is you're lying about why. If you don't keep the customers who love quality, your whole fashion-based marketing scheme will fall apart. You're not going to make it fashionable to give up your headphones. You're just not. You tried making the white plastic earbuds fashionable...sort of flew for a few years of dancing shadow silhouette commercials, but the kids I see now are not wearing them. That failed. You tried buying a headphone company; its image started to tarnish immediately after you bought it. Now you're going to try to make me part with my Grados. You have ZERO chance of this. Either you own the analog headphone in the device, or you will be out of the music game. The conversations people are about to overhear between nerds at work, at school....those conversations are NOT going to get you new customers.
It must be nice believing that. I don't think Steam can afford to agree with you. This has nothing to do with the server market.
We all know what ecosystem means, and we all know that DRM-lovers love to euphemistically package DRM as "ecosystem". This looks like a DRM experiment. Stepping towards iOS like DRM store exclusivity. Easy to imagine an "allow unsigned apps" checkbox in Windows now. (I haven't used 10. Maybe it's already there.) They'll let users allow unsigned apps for a few years, then use some convenient cyber-disaster to justify disallowing the feature on national/international security grounds, and voila, Windows DRM only version of Windows is locked in.

If they're trying to sell us 22 channel surround, we have far surpassed the point of diminishing returns for consumer usage.
It's word salad with some punctuation.
I agree. Any meanings found in those words are the products of the readers's sick, twisted minds. Let's debate the use of apostrophe s at the end of plural nouns now.
Am I the only one that thinks this is gibberish?
My typewriter monkey wrote it. I don't know what it means.
