I don't think you guys understand. It's not that you're paying for the software and not for the person, it's that as a consumer, the money you pay to whoever you buy from says you support that company. It's the same argument that animal activists make when they don't buy from companies that are known to treat animals poorly. When you pay, it means you support them and want them to continue in what they're doing.
You can admit that the company makes really good games and still not support them, and you can decide that you value the happiness you'd get from the game more than whatever broken attitude you'd be supporting, but to not be aware that your spending habits reinforce company policies is ignorant. That's why so many companies maintain good PR. Bad PR leads to reduced revenue leads to "needs to fix our policies".
Anyways back on track,
So far, Ni No Kuni is getting a solid 8.5. I got stuck for a while but it's finally picking up, and the story is enjoyably cute and entertaining without being too kiddy. Very rare.
I also started Heavy Rain, and it's really heavy. I can't play it for more than a couple hours, but so far the experience is almost 10/10. The only thing I'm not a fan of is that I'm not sure if choosing different options has any impact so far, but that I'm not hat far in.
Also playing GT5. Same old Gran Turismo experience, but I can definitely see the limits of the PS3. Loading takes a noticeable amount of time.
