Why I’m Not Renewing My XBox Live Subscription

The thing that impressed me most with the original Xbox was something ridiculously simple; they decided to make a break-away cord (in case you tripped over it), so that your system wouldn’t go crashing to the ground (my original NES broke due to that. Thanks, bro). In addition to that, the controller’s cord was made much longer than other systems at 9 1/2 feet! These days we have wireless controllers, so this isn’t an issue anymore, but the reason it impressed me so much is that it showed that the people in charge of Xbox actually cared about the customers, and delved into what they might want. Nintendo’s Gamecube, on the other hand, had a cord that was about 6 feet; great for Japanese households, but not even close to sufficient for American ones. My current favorite thing about 360 is that it has the most ergonomic controller I’ve ever felt, and is one of the reasons I chose it over a PS3. Well, let’s now move on to my current negative feelings towards Microsoft and their Xbox 360.
