Consumer rights....sort of...

Recommended Posts

Remember in your games as a service episode where game companies are creating online only games and taking away the consumer's rights away?


Well it seems that games are not the only product affected by this mentality but pretty much anything in any industry as well because all companies want to  keep a monopoly on their product and/or anything else regarding that product......I think this will less of a fight but instead more of a world war for consumer rights.

 

Here's the video that both made me realize this and inspired me to make this post
https://youtu.be/AuPcC9hpMOc

 

Not you're probably wondering why I made this post and that's because of two things:

 

1. to maybe bring this to Ross's attention although I'm pretty sure that's kind of unnecessary and they probably already knows this

and

 

2. To create a sore place where people can further discuss this topic although I'm pretty sure there's probably another post where people can do that already

 

That'll be all, have a nice day ross anf good luck on both those videos as well as your future in general, and thanks to anyone else who came and stoped by to read this post have a good day

People haven't been able to play some games when the central servers are down for decades now, but now you also can't use some vacuum cleaners when the central servers are down.

That right there is one of the major reasons I actively avoid "smart" devices that require an internet connection.

Don't insult me. I have trained professionals to do that.

I agree, you don't need an internet connection on everything.

"I don't trust a man that doesn't have something strange going on about him, cause that means he's hiding it from you. If a man's wearing his pants on his head or if he says his words backwards from time to time, you know it's all laid out there for you. But if he's friendly to strangers and keeps his home spick-and-span, more often than not he's done something even his own ma couldn't forgive." -No-bark Noonan
