quote: It's also an awful option for media files on Windows 8, as Win8 doesn't let you add removable media to your libraries, and it doesn't allow ModernUI apps to access files that are not in your libraries. There are workarounds (such as making softlinks to removable drives inside existing directories) but they're a kludge, and not something users should have to go through the trouble of doing/figuring out.

quote: Secondly, the Xbox: I hope they do kill the used game market. I despise the used game market because it’s one of the reasons new games are so expensive. It’s also one of the big reasons the PC game market has gone south, because companies like GameStop quit pushing them as there’s no used market for PC games for them to rape again and again, and there hasn’t been for a while. Consoles aren’t killing the used market; they’re catching up to the PC and doing what should have been done a long time ago, killing GameStop. GameStop preys on children who want new games but have crappy allowances and can’t buy online without their parent’s help, so they buy the kid’s old games and a complete steal (5 to 10 bucks if you’re lucky) and then mark them up to 20-30 bucks and resell them. I’d rather just buy a new game for 40 bucks, but you can’t because the used game market squelches so many potential sales that the new game market has to raise their prices to compensate. As a developer and a consumer… screw that!

The console, which is expected to launch later this year, is also criticized as being harder to develop for and less popular than Sony Corp.'s (TYO:6758) upcoming PlayStation 4, according to industry sources who've worked with early dev kits.
