^ You sound like a f*ggot who's mad he can't afford an HDTV.
No, it's not about principal. It's about advancing technology. Did n*ggas cry when movie studios only started releasing their new movies in DVD format, effectively k!lling VHS? Same between VHS and Betamax? Same between Betmax and good ol rolling film?
Did n*ggas cry when music labels released their music only in CD format, effectively k!lling tapes? Same with tapes and 8 tracks. Same with 8 tracks and vinyl.
Or how about when the government decommissioned all wireless spectrum for TV use and forced everyone to get on a digital signal?
Get with the fu*kin times and stop complaining. Your broke a.ss won't be able to skate on old technology forever, and n*ggas are just mad that the time to ditch old a.ss tube TVs is already here. If you can't afford to buy a TV, or hell, even a $100 COMPUTER MONITOR, without complaining about it, you lost in life. Plain and simple. If this is that big of a deal you shouldn't even be buying a console, your a.ss should be in school or doing something to better yourself.
