That's an oversimplification if I ever saw one. You can mock people who disliked Microsoft's policies by TYPING IN ALL CAPS WITH EXCLAMATION POINTS all you like, and hey, there may be some who do (it is the internet, after all), but we all know there's more to it than that. Multi-billion dollar corporations don't change the direction of their product because a guy posts "PS4TW!" A lot of people simply did not like policies such as the 24 hour check in and limitations on their game license, and this was reflected in many polls, videos, forums, social media, and if the reports I read are true, preorders.
