An interesting thought is that we are moving into an era where we don’t own anything anymore. And even more that we don’t have a choice of what we don’t own.
The way subscription services are going, gaming, music and tv for example, you can play many games, watch on-demand tv and listen to every song as long as you pay the subscription. If you stop your subscription you lose access to everything. You don’t own any of it.
On top of that, if you keep paying your subscription you are ultimately not in control of what you get. Whatever corporation owns the service can add or remove any content at their own will. One of your favourite old games, music albums or tv shows, they can remove it.
With xbox reportedly releasing a streaming only console this is even more prevalent, aswell as many other examples out there.
Just an interesting thought.
What do you think about that we’re moving this way?
