This is not a critical letter but a letter of gratitude.
I always remember a day when i was about 12 - 13 years old, in a shop i try i game (halo) and i'm be enchanted from that, i watch this big black box and after months and months saving pocket money i finally buy this xbox and complete halo... essentially i buy it only for halo and halo 2 because i'm always been a fan of JRPG turn old style and ther ara not game like this for that platoform.
When I buy the Xbox360 i'll buy it for two reason.... ""low price"" for a new and performant hardware and after reading news about RPP - JRPG for that platform (this time the menu is ok].
[thanx a lot for Lost Odissey had believed in much titols that probably have no a big marchet expecially in europe ooutside jap [blue dragone, tales of vesperia ecc...].
I'm never be interested in play online game, because if i like or i'm attraccted from the idea of online game sincerly i run to buy a ps3 in my head if i pay the hardware, if hay pay the software, and i pay the provider for internet connection i never give another money to micrsoft or any other for using at 100% service that i pay also for the best quality i think that if y pay another penny i can see an idiot and myself in the mirror. That's my personal opinion nothing more nothing less.
I try to connect xbox360 with ethernet cable in two ocaasion for a patch that solve a bug in Call of duty game (i not a fan of the call of duty but kill tha nazi soldiers is always wonderfull.. my crezy mind and wiah ...] and i try after 6-7 years for patch of skyrim, my old pc was dad, i must buy a new and i'll not be able to conecct with internet this time i try 3 - 4 hours and stop i download patch trough a friends.
I finally arrive to the point, i never been intrested in online game, and in any case i'm really really happy for your hardware, for the role play game that arrive for xbox360.... but in this days i read rumors about a really probably always online required for play to your titles if this is true personally i not buy your or any other consoles that subordinate me an internet service, or block the possibility of play a game from secondhand market, or land from a friends same thing for a limit of this possibility (why i can't land a game to my 5 firends and i must choice 2 of them if i have a limit for that game for 3 different cosnole [is an example].
I simply like have the total propriety without restrinction of things that i buy, i not like must have internet subordinate hardware, if a day i decided stop pay internet and living without that i can't play to my videogames????? no, is not acceptable for me.
So i wait official news but, probably the nextgeneration console microsoft [if i think to a stupid posts to Adam Orth 90% if he defended the always online restrinction is becasue that will be the nextgen microsoft console decision].
That are my opinions and motivation for say you thank you a lot for ecceptional xbox360 games and a smart but quality offert for JRPG i'm sorry to not play the nexts halo but there are condition that i never accept i'm sure that the major part of mondial population/market target have no problem with that and you have think a lot to the god and bad consequences of that choice SAJONARA AND REALLY GOD JOB WITH XBOX360 PROBABLY I CONTINUE TO PLAY WITH THAT FOR A LONG TIME.
