I was using myself as a reference to one of millions like me who would buy . . .
But I think anybody in gaming understands that the 360 ecosystem is a significant and important one, aka competitions, gaming houses, Xbox live and on and on. So thats a full time job keeping the ecosystem fed. That is easy to understand even by me and I won't be buying a 360 ever.
But Dude, here's the deal: The Xbox is one piece of hardware, and a really really crappy one at that--don't even try to refute its record as a lame piece of crap hardware.
It would be like trying to force all the Indy 500 drivers to use one car built by the same manufacturer, but the car is so poorly designed it breaks down every five laps and the manufacturer is so inept that it gives the cars away at a loss thinking they will make back their money selling popcorn to the crowd.
But the cars do go fast.
Pretty boring stuff, suffocating to those who love to mod and build their own systems using the latest processor or graphics card. But if dad is trying to get his kid in the race, I am sure just buying one off the shelf solves the problem.
As for the Bungie coders, I doubt very very seriously they have any real interest in pegging themselves forever to that kind of incompetence. However if the console makers were driven to make products that all games would work on, say by some kind of governing ruleset for gaming competitions, then it would be an exciting and positive thing for gamers. Right now, its just luser hype.
(Just plain rubbed me the wrong way. I guess I must be grumpy.)
