in the US it looks like there may be more fair and balanced gamers unlike in other regions where things are truly one sided. As someone in the US, I very much prefer to play the field. It may cost more to support multiple but hey... nobody said this was a cheap hobby.

I never understood it either. Gaming is meant to be fun and there is fun to be found in all platforms not just one.
