Your use of the word "entitled" is outrageous and offensive, as is your hate of free markets.
Sorry, I do not intend to be offensive to anybody with the use of "entitled." Wrong word I suppose.
I guess what I'm disagreeing with is the amount of flak MS is getting here. 72 hours of pure hatred and baseless raging when there's a complete double standard for our *holy Steam. Saying "oh but Steam sales!" is only a justification for the no second hand sales and a complete double standard.
First, not using the word "entitled" is a very good start. It makes people very angry because it is very patronizing.
As if we the consumers are dirty peasants merely feeding off the handouts of the big corps.
Second, not everyone (me at least) doesn't support Steam full on. Steam is in the land of "digital content" where the rule can't be applied because they aren't selling you a product (game) but merely a license. At least I think that's how they do it.
I totally do understand the Steam double standard. If not endorsing Steam is what I have to do to speak out against this X1 crap then so be it.
