Like what? I haven't had any issues

You clearly haven't experienced the lack of net neutrality like the rest of us.  Don't you know it's ruining everything connected to the internet?

I just realized that it looks like I owned RIGS Mechanized Combat League.  Was this free on PS Plus at some point?  I'm sure I never paid actual money for it.

Can anyone comment on how useful the Farpoint controller is for games other than Farpoint?  I'm interested in Farpoint but can wait, but if the controller is generally useful for several other games I wouldn't mind a reason to pull the trigger (no pun intended).

Yeah, consumer choice isn't exactly a thing for the vast majority of people, at least not for home connectivity and broadband, so the idea that this is good for business to encourage competition is moot. 

 

Also, the point about rolling back regulations to a past Democrat - that's referring to regulations when dial-up was still the norm, smart phones  and Youtube didn't exist, portable gaming systems didn't have wi-fi, and the only online connectivity for consoles was that Dreamcast modem. Online job applications were not the norm, and news was still primarily disseminated through print media. Email wasn't standard for work and school, either.

 

That's like rolling back copyright laws to before digital media was a thing. I don't think the Clinton administration can be blamed for how 90s policies might impact the internet in 2018, they were updated for a reason.

Admittedly, I don't know a lot about net neutrality, but wasn't it passed in 2015 under Obama?  So wouldn't the rolling back regulations to a past Democrat be referring to that?  Also, the internet seemed to do decently well up until 2015 without net neutrality.  I'm not saying that repealing net neutrality was the right move, but I also don't know that it's the doomsday scenario many seem to indicate.

I'm basically getting my son a PS VR for Christmas.  Can anyone tell me how important the move controllers are to the overall experience and whether I should be concerned about any specific version of the move controllers?  I see some that appear to be updated, but I guess that's just for the USB connector?
