There is one problem with the "consumers have voted with their wallets" argument: the consumers haven't actually voted. Once you buy a game you're stuck with it. There's no returning a game for a refund. Sure, you can sell it for 5 to 10 cents on the dollar to a place like Gamestop, but once you've opened that packaging you can't return it for a full refund. So when you buy a game, particularly if you're an "early adopter" of the game, you have no way to know what you're getting yourself into until it's too late. The only alternative is to stop buying games entirely. That is the only vote that gamers have cast: crappy, broken games are better than no games at all.
