I don't understand even the tiniest part of this simile.

Same here. I assume he's a lumberjack with a fetish for chainsaws and the destruction of treekind. When I see a tree I genuinely don't think "I should really cut that down"...

Well if I understand it right the "hardcore" gamer is the tree and so MS basically has to keep whacking away at them with an axe until they fall over and accept that MS' tv plans are genius.

I think. :wink:

'I understand your frustration'...'Do you have any matches? Try setting fire to it!!' :lol:

The way of life is the posture of a tree; rigid trunk for structured and directed childhood, followed by open branches - life choices. Some branches take one higher than others, and some split many times. But never forget...Every branch bears a leaf.

Oh, no, they'll still spy on us and hit us with sharp pointed sticks. When things are fully up and running the Kinect will also be capable of detecting if you're smoking whilst gaming, and so blow acrid smoke in your face.

I guess if you think cut it down to make house it makes more sense.
