    More like "leased" :mamoru:

    So, not only does Microsoft sells you a poorly manufactured piece of shit, but also they claim that you don't even own the games that you bought.

    Well, if they think that, why not lease the games at a far reduced price? :mamoru:

    That's pretty standard for the industry.

    As much as I'd like to lol at the 360 the above statement does make sense.

    Same as you buy a license for most pieces of software that you use on your computer.

    This actually sounds like it's more of an argument for a third party device. Microsoft is really picky and even makes sure their controllers are properly displayed in games :rofl:.

    Oh and I have no doubt it says that somewhere. Hell when you log into xbox live I'm pretty sure there is a wall_of.txt terms of agreement you gotta agree too.

    I really hope datel wins for future cases. Its likely one day all we will need is one box that does everything in our living rooms. If a company like microsoft is behind it and is allowed to prevent competition on it, then we will all be fucked.

    Almost software is licensed, not sold. I'm pretty sure that will include the PS3 as well :dunno: Just the way things are done.

    Yeah but what pisses me off is that even you don't own your game savefile.

    At least on PS3, it doesn't.

    Some savefiles you can't copy to another system if your machine dies. :mad:

    No, you can't copy them. You can however move them.

    For example if they allowed you to "copy" with something like forza which allows you to gift cars to other accounts. You could easily copy your save to another media like a memory card. Gift all the cars from one save to another gamertag, then immediately gift them right back. Load them on the copied save where you retained those cars and bam you've doubled your garage.

    For Christ's sake, the number of (presumably) fully-grown men engaging in this "console wars" bullshit is truly pathetic.

    If I didn't have a hard-on for achievements (when I play my xbox), I'd have a modded one a long time ago.

    You should post more in the vag forums. They need more threads on console wars.
