What are you trying to say then? Because all I hear is you trying to argue that Sony starting monetizing online services via the PS+ service. Which is incorrect. PS+ is simply a paid service to get free games and discounts from the online store. There are some other little perks thrown in but the games are the big selling point. Here is the flaw in your argument, Sony has ALWAYS sold games and things through their PSN Store. So they have always been trying to monetize that particular part of their online services.
Because people work and have kids to raise. We can’t just play video games all day.
What a bunch of crap. Yeah, sorry, I don’t support BS tactics to change a goal based system for a game into a new money making scheme for publishers.
I don’t see how it’s childish or condescending unless that person is bragging about their gamerscore. For me, it’s like an OCD thing. To me, it’s an extra little goal thrown into a game and I like to collect them. I see it as the same as the stats in games such as GTA or Saints Row. I’m not going to go brag about how much time I spent riding a motorcycle but I like seeing it.
Developers and publishers are determining the achievements, not Microsoft. Point your anger towards the right people
And who is building the functionality into the system and allowing developers and publishers to do this? Microsoft. So, yeah, MS is the right person to be angry with.
