    You can have all that crappy shit back and give me free games like PS plus please. Thank you.

    Nope, you can keep renting your shitty games while others use all those cool apps.

    @1 If you want to get free games to play on a subscription basis, why not just… use your PS3? It’s clearly providing you with what you want, so the device is clearly better for your *own* personal needs as a consumer.

    Huh. Some of those apps actually come to Sweden. A welcome change, although I’m not terribly interested in any of them. But I guess Microsoft has to make an effort to make the app system relevant for people living in regions outside of the US. I’ve grown tired of paying a monthly fee for a myriad of services that are, by and large, unavailable to me.
