Xbox users messed up the free world.

Most UK but mainly America. Bratty, impatient american kids who want everything now now now now now totally put the power of the freeworld in the hands of the giant Microsoft.

Let me tell you what the power of boycotting does.

PC Gamers were also being asked to pay for a LIVE subscription.

This was when Microsoft launched their 'Games For Windows' and thought this is the opportunity to destroy our free multiplayer world and figured we will follow suit as with the xbox.

What they didnt realise was that PC Gamers, on the whole, are alot more mature.

What they didnt realise, is that our sense of community is better than any community you have on a console.

What they didnt realise, is that PC Gamers would boycott, and did boycott, everything that had to do with Microsoft.

This boycott lasted quite a long while. But PC Gamers did not budge.

So what happened you ask?

LIVE for PC was put back FREE!!! Yes! FREE!

LIVE became free for PC Gamers. We get map packs and custom stuff for free! Xbox users are the ultimate suckers and this is the truth.

Modern Warfare 2

PC Gamers are again boycotting this game. I feel however, that instead of boycotting, theyre gonna RIP the game for what Infinity have done. As an "Up Yours Infinity" gesture.

We will see how long it takes Infitity to start putting in proper servers.
Another win for PC Gamers

A fairly simplistic fanboy post, ignorant of the vast differences in the PC and console gaming ecosystems.

Looked more like this was copied any pasted o.O

But I don't care :) I'm getting my MW2 for £35, top end for any new game but at least it's not extortionate! Same price as I paid for WaW :whistling:

There is only one ignorant party here, you.
It is not an ecosystem.
Console technology comes from PC technology.
Without advances in the PC world, you would not have high end consoles.
The game COD, was made famous by PC gamers. It was first released on the PC and PC gamers made the game what it is today.

The sheer fact that you dont realise even after ive typed it out and the facts are open, Microsoft TRIED AND FAILED to charge for LIVE on the PC, demonstrates to us all how ignorant you are to say:

a.) It is a fanboy post
b.) There is a vast difference between the gaming world of consoles and the gaming world of PC's.

Open your eyes grandpa. Gaming has evolved from the days of Pong.

There is more to read.
Maybe you should get your glasses on.
I stick to what ive said. Maybe it is you who are falling apart in this argument.

Regardless. I am glad you have nothing more to say and i have reduced you to a sentence

Very good.

So the point is that PC gaming is superior? And that by uniting as a front you can get what you want? Nothing new there, but if everyone on Xbox united, I think the world would implode and hell would be well and truely frozen!

My opinion would be to disagree on the first point, but the reasons would differ and be purely down to personal preference :) I prefer console gaming *shrugs*

The point is following on from the thread about boycotting MW2.

I dont know why Xbox users or PS3 users would wanna boycott it (i didnt read the thread fully) but from what i did read, alot of people were skeptical about whether a boycott is really going to work.

So the point of this thread is to demonstrate that if you all stuck to your guns, a boycott would be well and truly successful. The example used was that of Xbox and PC Live. It would be too late to get anyone to ever start boycotting Live. But it wont be late as of yet to boycott Infinity and Activision.
