TtWaV teaser: Sony's online sucks now?

The next episode of Talking to Women about Videogames went long; 40 seconds too long to be precise. Those 40 seconds had to be cut, but that doesn't mean you don't get to see them. We slapped this all important deleted scene into a video of its own, sort of like a 40 second, less funny version of Wake Up Ron Burgundy. I hope you like it. 

The topic of next week's post will be Sony's ever evolving online practices, specifically the potential for all of their future games to require online passes, and the the PS Vita 3G model's chances for daily download caps. Sony has quite the history of inspiring vengeful consumers to strike back at their attempts to control how their consoles and games are used post-purchase. With these online passes and data caps, it looks like that history might be bound to continue. In fact, people are have already found a brassy work around for the PS3's new no-sue agreement. I wonder how long it will take for them to get around Sony's other attempts to control how their consoles are used?

And how about you? Are you planning to rise up against download caps and online passes, or are you ready to jam with Sony's controlling ways?
