People who make noise on the internet have never been the majority of anything except for the people who make the most noise on the internet.
As we are going to see over the next couple of days, your assertion that "many more people liked it than didn't" doesn't hold water since not everybody who would have bought a console within the next few years actually bother with any of this internet discussion stuff. Especially when they are actually not unhappy. You're simply not going to hear from them and its that simple.
Communities like ours are a minority
, its just that since we are based on the internet, we know how to make enough noise to make it seems like everyone agrees with us. But that is solemnly ever the case.
-Call of Duty
-Consoles in general
-Tonnes of other things not limited to our
section of internet communities
The success of all those are proof that despite the astronomical amount of negative noise made on the internet, the rest of planet earth have their own
opinions that don't necessarily match and are many a time completely opposing.
The fact that after being basically silent, the people disappointed in the removal of the DRM and hence features are now voicing themselves is proof that being upset and loud doesn't automatically make you a majority of anything. You're just in the spot light more because you're being loud.
At the end of the day though, its a shame it takes the removal of features for tech media sites to finally start talking about them:All of a sudden
family sharing and disc less, seamless game switching are in the headlines......when those features don't exist anymore
