I'm sick of this as well. Shorts are about as evil as their troll liberal cousins.
I'm throwing the BS flag on this bogus story. MSFT would not do something this radical. Imagine the backlash from consumers. I have not bought a new video game in at least four years and I don't plan on starting any time soon. There are a lot of people out there like me as well I/we can't afford new games. The mandatory internet connection is a load also. I know that a lot of us have wireless in our homes, but not everyone does. These people would be left out as well. Consider foreign countries where internet is not as prevalent. MSFT needs them as well. I have always loved XBox; however, I would rather buy a PS3 or 4 if this turns out to be true.
Once the truth comes out GME's price will get back on track; however the trolls need to be stopped.
