Simple. Microsoft milks it's customers. I loved the 360, preferred it over PS3 up until Microsoft showed their stupidity with the xbone. I loathe them now and haven't touched my 360 in months.
That's ridiculous. You started liking the PS3 over the 360 because of their policies on the next gen console? Isn't this like being a fanboy? You're looking at the company, not the product? People make fun of people for sticking with the company even when the product isn't good. Now you're hating a good product because the company is bad? Their ideas about the X1 would not affect your use of the 360.
Bad example. Apple is the king of milking customers and everyone should already know it. IMO, nobody smart would ever use Apple's garbage.
That's your opinion, but I have to disagree. You are paying a premium, yes, but the products work much better imo. This is very OT, so I'll just give my input on the Turtle Beaches themselves.
I've never used the DSS2 processor included, but Turtle Beach headsets work pretty well for what they are. I had the X1s, and am using X31s for my 360, and they do what they say they are going to do. Good sound quality even without the processor. There are many wires for the X12s and they do feel a little flimsy.
