People seem to ignore the fact that a closed system brings the advantage of universal standards in all software, that's what people like. People now have a lot of time and money invested in their Xbox Live Profile and as long as MS carries that forward then people will carry on with it.
They can still have Live, in the form of GFW Live, which links to your Xbox Live and Windows Phone 7 profiles.
I would literally rather eat 10 babies than have to use GFWL any more than I do already, which at the moment is is "begrudgingly and only when absolutely necessary". If GFWL is anything like Xbox Live, then I feel a deep, deep sadness for those who use it.
Yes Ad, I am fairly certain I am not a metal chair leg.
Yeah alright Colombo.
