Ill keep this short, as its not 100% formed in my mind yet, and im worried it might become flame bait in the wrong hands.

Im sure we have all heard and read that the new consoles will have Always on DRM and will not support used games.

Bear with me here.

For years PC gamers have dealt with Always on DRM(or various other methods of intrusive DRM), limited use, or even single use keys, not being included in big releases, and obscene amounts of developer and publisher intervention in how we use their games. We have also seen less care taken with our versions of AAA titles, and been blamed for piracy and everything companies can think of.

In exchange, we have traditionally gotten better graphics, better frame-rate, and occasionally mod tools.

If you think about it, consoles may finally be getting the same sort of treatment we have had for years now.

And while im disgusted by the fact that used games may be getting killed off, and that intrusive DRM may be getting more common, I cant help but giggle at the squeals of dismay from the console gamers who are getting a glimpse of what we deal with on a daily basis and who are horrified by what they are seeing.

If all the rumors are true, im interested to see if we as gamers can finally get past the Console vs PC war and start directing our ire at the people and companies that actually deserve that venom.
