I have had enough. Microsoft and its monopolizing ways are just too much for any gamer to endure. With it's marketing scams and weak out dated consoles xbox fails to deliver any kind of fair online gaming experience. To have to pay for a service that is tainted beyond fixing is unbearable. Since when is cheating allowed? While playing numerous games on xbox live I have ran into blatant hacking/cheating. Any hack or mod that can be used on PC can be used on xbox, which is absurd. I pay for my internet and a xbox live fee which too very few might not be a big deal, but to most people on the earth who are not rich, it is a big deal. There is no way in hell that someone should be able to manipulate any game or any thing that I am doing via an internet connection. How is it at all fun to get good at a game just to run into nothing but cheaters that cheated their way to the top. This mainly consists in fps games which people tend to take quite seriously. Fun means that something is fun to do and no person should ever have to deal with cheating involved in a GAME! I could go on for eternity about this situation and I'm sure that there are millions who agree with me. GET RID OF THE CHEATERS! Xbox live's network is pure garbage. For those of you who are so narrow minded to not see this, just keep playing xbox. While myself and any other REAL gamers will use the Playstation, because there is not a hacker in every deathmatch or every session that exists. Not only that PSN is FREE, and a better network that does not try to constantly market garbage games to players. Gears of War 3......what joke. It should be named Gears of Marketing 3. There is no skill or prominence in being the top purchased game. It just means that they scammed every other person with Microsoft's cutthroat style marketing. What game really sets the xbox apart form any other console?? Hmmmmm, I would say Halo, but that was over 10 YEARS AGO. Xbox reminds me of some rich kid that has so much money they can just buy their way into anything, meanwhile having no quality behind the product. 10$ a month which is 120$ a year, multiply that by one states population and you could own a country. Why are we making these people rich that never care for one second what the players deserve, which is to have fun and not be cheated in the process. I have tried to stick up for xbox because of Halo, but just one game that recognizes that cheaters are BAD, is not enough. Every game that has a online capibility should have the same EXACT framework that Halo Reach uses to keep track of the cheaters. All this being said, I am going back to PSN, and advise anyone who does not want to be viciously marketed too or cheated to go buy a PS3. To all the hackers/unskilled pansies I hope one day you all get banned and are never allowed to even attempt to cheat little kids or decent people who work hard for what they have. To all the bias xbox forum employees....... I feel bad for you for having to sell your soul to make a buck.
