Joystiq releases another in their series of Xbox 360 Annoyance posts, this time highlighting what I have commented on before: Downloading.
The real problem is that the Xbox 360 is crippled when it’s downloading. We’ve known about this. We’ve bitched about it before. But last night’s episode warrants another post. It’s not like we can’t find anything to do for 90 minutes (there is a world of possibilities out there, right?). But, if Microsoft wants to claim that the Xbox 360 is all about choice, then give us that choice. Let us listen to music. Let us watch DVDs. Heck, let us play games! Let us do all of these things while we download a game demo from the Marketplace. Microsoft, are you listening?
Good article, and one of my biggest annoyances with the Xbox 360.
