Digital content is not stable nor guaranteed. How are streaming subscriptions "better" when you can just take our money, use our info, and give us nothing?
"We may disable access to content associated with your account for any reason."
2. #gamers If you move, you don't "own" your digital content.
"If you change your account or device to another region, you may not be able to re-download content or applications or re-stream certain content that you purchased; you may need to re-purchase content or applications"
3. #gamers Big tech has no obligation to replace what you bought in digital format. Pay again!
"Except to the extent required by applicable law, we have no obligation to provide a re-download or replacement of any content or application you purchase."
"... you grant Microsoft a royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, non-exclusive & sublicensable right to use, modify, adapt, reproduce, create derivative works from, translate, edit, perform, distribute, & display your Submission, including your name, in any media.
5. #gamers They can use us to promote their products for free:
"your Submission may appear in demonstrations or materials that promote the Store &/or the products, services & content offered in the Store... No compensation will be paid with respect to the use of your Submission"
6. #gamers They take no responsibility or liability for using our information for promotion & money. They can erase our contributions at their sole discretion
"Microsoft may remove any Submission at any time in its sole discretion...takes no responsibility & assumes no liability"

So what do we get for the years we have spent supporting big tech, buying video games and their associated products, promoting them on social media and other platforms, writing reviews, making videos?
7. #gamers
We get expensive digital formats & streaming services that we don't own nor have true rights to access freely. We are paying money to companies for products and services they can just take away for arbitrary reasons, and we sign on the dotted line.
8. #gamers
Why pay for a digital copy or streaming service that can be removed from your possession at any time? A physical copy cannot be removed from your possession for arbitrary reasons by big companies. You can also sell or trade physical items because you actually own them
9. #gamers #GamersUnite
We all agree to these terms & conditions from big corporations & big tech because if we don't agree, we don't get to use these internet services. We pay to not even truly own our purchases. We give our rights away to big tech. They make $ & we own nothing
