Guys, guys guys, give him a break. He made an excellent point which seems to have been skipped over to criticize his PlayStation comment. ESPN WWoS is HUGELY attended. I was at WWoS for a Braves game the other day and there was things going on every where you looked, every sport imaginable. I did leave a bit underwhelmed that PlayStation hadn't updated the Pavilion with PlayStation 4's, all that's in there is PS3's though. Maybe Disney wanted PS to update the are with PS4's and PS declined and pulled out? Who knows. Either way, the place was busy as all heck when I was there, i'm sure they'll either expand the ESPN quick service or find another sponsor to replace it. That complex is a HUGE money maker for Disney.

That's still a thing?

You've heard of the Playstation 4, right?

I'm not as concerned about this because WWOS is blowing up in growth. Sounds like PlayStation just decided to pull out because no one really cared about PlayStation.

But others did and used them as part of THEIR vacation which made THEIR vacation more enjoyable I used the now departed boats on the river. I will not rent boats on bay lake as too many idiots running around without looking around and you have the ferry traffic. I'd never use the playstation pavillion but I know other families which do. Just one more in the year of a thousand cuts, Imagine if you have kids competing - what do the siblings do video games is a pretty good occupation for them as most siblings are not gonna sit in the bleachers all day.

See, this is how it all starts. They just cut things over and over. Things I didn't know existed. Things I likely would never use in the first place. But things! Harrumph! Harrumph! Harrumph! It's sad to say that if I could have a week of vacation and get some solid uninterrupted time on my Playstation, I'd be very happy. I just doubt I'd fly to Orlando to do it.
