Looks good Matt. I think I'm going to hold off for the iphone f2p version though.

Episode 1: PSTC The Reboot

Hey we are actually bringing the old episodes back. They'll likely be back up in working order by the end of the weekend. So basically disregard everything we said (as usual).

Yeah there is no question that there PR on the matter has been horrible. Honsetly don't know what they are doing on that front. I think you raise an important question though, a big kicker for how exceptable Xbox's system will be; is what benefits will gamers recieve? If its nothing, than there's certainly no reason to give up your rights to a phsycial copy. However, there could be some benefits similar to steam with aggressive sales and more varied pricing models. 

One of the things I think people are forgeting with this is that Microsoft doesn't even know how this thing is going to work yet. Its obivious they don't or they would have addressed it alread, because the speculation fo what it could be is likely far worse than what the end result will be. That being said I don't think people should simply give MS the benefit of the doubt. It's great to question these companies and make sure they provide you the best service possible. 

Just think its too early to make a definitive statement one way or another.

Well it doesn't have to be intrusive to be a service platform, it just has to offer a service lol. Like I said physical copies dont' necessarily need to go to wayside for these services to exist, but its hard to believe there's a future where digital doesn't become the prodominant means of production. 

Digital isn't all bad though, tears down the gate for indies and removes a lot of the barriers to entry for development. I expect physical copies to stick around (at least this gen), but I also think they are going to be more expensive.

Yeah, Gamers certainly influence the general populace to a degree. I mean I think we've all been asked about our opinions on games and systems, and our recomendations do carry weight, just not sure if its enough to drastically alter world wide market share.

Note: I'm not justifying the use of built-in DRM, I simply don't believe that it is going to resonate with the general consumer like it does with us.

I understand that, I just think we are only seeing the tip of the iceberg at the moment. We really haven’t seen these games fleshed out, heck most of the stuff there didn’t even offer playable demos and when they did it was highly scripted. What we are looking at right now are concepts, a lot of them have promise but neither Sony nor Microsoft has shown a full-fledged game ready for launch.

Well to be honest they were not the first to cross that line. Steam did it way before them. I understand that built in DRM is upsetting and I'm by no means saying that its accpetable. However, do I think this is going to influence the majority of consumers this generation, probably not. Most people won't even know this exists when they buy the console. 

Further down the line when consumers truly do look at games a service something like this should (and proably will ) register more with consumers. But for the time being I'm pretty sure they are most concered with games and what console their friends are going to be playing on.
