Not only that:
- If you wanted to play any of the games online, you had to have a PSN account. Which meant you had to provide a credit card whether you were ever going to buy anything or not.
NOT TRUE. You can create PS3 accounts without having to provide any cc info. I have done so many times for the GT5 birthday/gift car cheat.
One good reason why computers can do more work than people is that they never have to stop and answer the phone.
