Sucking More Dough From Your Show!

So this is probably old news by the time it comes but it still deserves a few hums. For even if the cat is so far ahead he will still rant about such dread. As video games are heading down the crapper I will be a little yapper.

So come the next generation games,
Sharing was going to go up in flames.
For a friend could not play your game,
Unless you follow all kinds of rules that are lame.

No longer could you just give one.
Instead they had to get their own under their sun.
Nothing but greed.
Thankfully people made them change their tune at their feed.

Either way they are as lame as can be.
But we will forget about that for now at my sea.
For let's suppose one day this really catches on,
Things would really go to shit at your lawn.

For say you buy some chips,
That are likely to widen those hips.
Sharing them with another,
Whether friend or brother,

Will be against the law.
You are the only one allowed to gnaw.
But first will come music for this,
Meaning you will be the only one able to listen to such bliss.

For only your player will play it.
So no trading CDs or songs of any kind at your pit.
That includes the digital stuff,
And all they will say is tough.

Oh wait they won't just say that,
They will allow it if you pay a fee at your mat.
So not only do you have to buy the thing,
Plus whatever to play it and let it sing,

But now you have to pay more to share.
And next up will be movies at your lair.
Because God only knows they don't make enough money already,
With billions of dollars coming in steady.

Now they want to suck another dime,
Because you giving a DVD to a friend is a crime.
They will get you in every way,
From chips to whatever you want to play.

All they have to do,
Is put a little code into whatever you use at your zoo,
And welcome to one step closer to 1984.
Aren't you ready to take the tour?

The sad part is this is not far from the truth for if they one ever gets away with it at their booth, it won't be long before everybody tries to screw you over in every way, all for a little more pay. Everything from clothes to light bulbs to ketchup, oh my. Don't you just love the greed cry? Hopefully it will never come to pass as it surely would not impress my little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  2. Greed of the traders knows no bounds
    They bid to suck from everyone around
    All ways they sieve
    Lots up their sleeve
    One is left sad with lots of frowns

  3. It must be piracy is so rampant
    sellers are not particularly gallant
    in trying to hurt the little guy
    who inadvertently does not comply!

  4. Nineteen eighty four is here
    Or didn't we know it was so near?
    Half the world has been asleep
    Wake up now and feel the deep
    Hand Victrolas aren't so bad
    Although the tunes are rather sad
    The mysterious letter I expound
    By old typewriter the truth be found

    1. Yeah in the sand
      The head of many across the land
      Letting greedy bums get away with such crap
      All across the map
      Hmm not sure I'd want to go that far back
      Here at my shack

  5. This is sad indeed.
    The mighty dollar and greed.
    But as consumers we allow it.
    Our only recourse is to not purchase the shit.

  9. Surprised by this greed, I am not.

    Many grinches thrown in this lot.

    Solution, if multiples can't be bought,

    Just stop everything, a whole life boycott.

  12. Good Morning Pat and his rhyming cat
    things are back to normal at your mat
    with a rant about those thieves
    stealing so more dough they can receive
    they cleverly disguise their agenda's
    I'm not believing..just propaganda
    prices soar at each and every store
    as the greedy make more and more
    not liking this vision, we need better
    decisions..jut my opinion..

    on the side: How is Pat and his rhyming cat
    doing today..it is so darn hot here a heat
    wave that won't break..wish I had a cottage
    by a lake..that would be great..lol..so you
    still packing a man on the go..look at Pat
    go go..tee hee had to add that in with the flow..

      Would sure be a nice trip to take
      Still packing away

      Cats know something is at play
      As they glare away

  13. Some things are so stupidly ridiculous you can't help but wonder why someone even deemed them acceptable ideas much less (in some cases) how they actually came to pass.

  18. This is a bit out of date haha because a lot of this has changed but the point still stands, it's just greedy of what Microsoft have done, it's been done for the sake of making more and more money, it's just greed that they're trying to prevent people from borrowing games off their friends and I'm glad they've had to change or risk losing a lot of money.

  25. This digital gaming and such is super convenient, but I want a tangible product when I pay money. It's like downloading books for my Kindle. Pisses me off that I pay as much for a download as I do a hard copy, then I can't pass it along to a friend when I am done or resell it. I've since stuck with free downloads and will refuse to pay for games where I don't get a hard disc. It's up to us consumers to keep this from happening. We don't buy, they don't make. Easy as that.

  26. This is all so confusing we don't quite understand. So maybe someday if a person buys a DVD he won't be able to give it to someone else to watch? Cause, you know, that's just INSANE. The Human's not a gaming aficianado (big word for a kitteh, huh?) so we don't quite get all this, but the principle's the same I suppose. Sigh.
