Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."

    Sorry Christan but what are you doing writing for any sort of tech media given the poor research your article shows. You never OWN a game so they are never YOUR games as you so obnoxiously state in your opening statement.

    Games content is only ever licensed to you with various caveats such as not copying, not showing to a million people and so on so in real terms you only ever have a right to consume not own the content.

    Show me a serious Xbox gamer whose Xbox doesn’t connect to Xbox Live by default every time they start their machine? So what if my licenses get checked once a day what’s the big deal? You fail to give a reasoned argument and point out the benefits of this, streaming games, cloud games, downloadable games, Xbox backups, transferable content etc, Any tech savvy journalist with a modicum of knowledge about the future of the media industry would be a little more astute around this, as for your sideways comments regarding the second hand market this is not confirmed yet as it will be up to the publishers to decide upon not Microsoft. This is also something the PC market has coped with for years given all games are sold with a one time license code (short of finding a dodgy key gen somewhere!) so the console market is just catching up!

    Sorry but you just come off like a churlish fan boy who knows nothing about gaming, tech, the media industry or the Xbox you so energetically criticise! I suppose you’ll also be one of those people to moan it won’t support current gen games……..
