Microsoft Well, paint me red and call me a girl scout, I totally did not see this one coming at all. This is so utterly surprising it made my brain explode. Hold on to your panties, because this will rock your world. After pressuring several smaller Android vendors into submission (and yes, HTC is still relatively small compared to other players), Microsoft is now moving on to the big one: Redmond is demanding $15 for every Samsung Android device sold. Samsung's choices are simple: pay up, or face another epic lawsuit.

You could have played those games on a pc and not bought an Xbox at all.

My PC is for work, not for play. I play games to unwind and relax, and I can't unwind behind a desk with a chronic WASD-claw. On top of that, gaming on the PC is a mess. You never know if stuff will run, lots of debugging and driver issues, the endless upgrade treadmill, mucking about with settings, and so on, and so forth.

I'm sure some people have the time for all that, but I don't.
