That's exactly why I used to rent games before I bought them.  Most of the time the game would be garbage and I wouldn't spend anymore money.  If the game was quality I always bought it afterwards.  Now days they're hitting us with a stupid online pass.  If the game you rent is good and decide to buy it you're out the rental fee plus another $10 for the online pass. At this point you're investing over $80 for any game. 

 

Also it seems like Playstation Plus is about to become mandatory with the PS4 release.  I'm tired of payin and payin.  I already pay $50 a month just to have the internet to play the games.  I don't care that Plus is only about $4 a month.  They're actually lying.  Will they bill your account $4 a month if you ask them to?  Heck no.  You have to pay for all those months up front in one payment.  That's a game that I can't buy.  With my internet bill and Plus there will always be that one month I have to pay $100 just play games.

 

When you do the math and you actually add up everything you invest to play your games it really is an eye opener.

The gap between PS3 and everything before is so huge that backwards compatibility is more important now than ever. PS3 games should be preserved.

I'll go you one better: I had to find a condo just so I could have a place to play my games. But guess what they don't tell you? You also need electricity. But then my eyes started to go fuzzy and I couldn't see the games anymore. They don't tell you that sometimes you need bifocal lenses to be able to see the game. Great. So I go to this Playstation vision specialist, or as he called it, the Optomatrist's, and there's another $200 down the drain just to play my games.

 

All in all the condo, electricity and glasses set me back so much I could have bought 5,000 games.

 

It's a screw job I tells ya.

You're not getting the electricity just to play video games.  If your vision is that bad, you're not getting glasses just for video games either.  These are necessities.  Games are secondary.  I get my internet just for the games.  Whatever else I use the internet for is secondary.  The day I stop playing games is the day I cancel my internet. 

 

If you quit the games today would you cancel your electriciy and throw away your glasses so you can drink spoiled milk and walk around half blind?  You'll probably be keeping your lights on and bifocals.

1) I find that hard to believe considering here you are, on the internet.

2)You're making a better case for cheap internet than cheap games. Companies could probably offer $30 high speed unlimited and make a profit.

Yep, you caught me red handed...using my internet for something other than the number one reason I got it for.  Sue me.
