PS4 did it. NextBox will do it. And the next Nintendo console after Wii U will do it. Deal with it.

I kinda hate it.

I don't care if my game console can view photos, listen to music, link to facebook or twitter and upload to youtube and have forums and communities and chats etc...

I just want a powerful console with good games and a friend list to message friends and play games online sometimes.
Movies on consoles is cool too.

Why exactly should I just sit back and accept a feature that's becoming intrusive and annoying?

Where sony is wrong, as always, is instead of trying to attract and convert casual gamers into buying ps4 by offering these services and then turn them into core gamers they opted to convert the core gamer into casual gamer by forcing these garbage options onto everyone and cattering to the cas'.

Pathetic...

I agree! I like the social aspects. My friends and I have always been competitive so this is right up our alley. Nobody is stopping the rest of you lonely hermits from continuing to play your single player games or forcing you to use these features. You claim you don't care about people's trophies, gamer level or what they are playing...how hard is it to continue playing your game without looking to see what others are doing. Disable notifications, disable the social aspects and just shut the hell up and play your games. It's as simple as that.

I can't buy the console without these features for less, so I'm paying for something I don't want. Which somewhat makes me want to not buy it at all. I'm not arguing, I'm just saying.

"Nobody is stopping the rest of you lonely hermits from continuing to play your single player games or forcing you to use these features."

Yes, they are. Developers can't seem to go 5 minutes without adding these features to games. Pretty damn soon there won't be a game out there that doesn't have them.

It ain't about being a lonely hermit either, I just loathe the idea of having to rely on other people to have fun.

Why in the hell would a social butterfly even want to play video games? Wouldn't you rather be out clubbing?
