I thought the wide acceptance of digital games was already jumping into the deep end, going from owning media to digital licenses is a massive jump, but now people want to throw even the license away for subscription services like xbox game pass.
I don't understand how the fuck consumers keep letting themselves get shafted, it's like people can't think 2 steps ahead and realize all this does is give the corporations complete power over your games post release and you with no benefit except the illusion of a "good deal" when they are really being rented games until contracts expire.

I pay 60 for 100 because there is only one ISP in my area and they have only one plan.

For the same price as a studio apartment in Sydney you can get a 50sqm apartment in Minato.

There's no real requirements or even restrictions, unlike China's whole limit on the number of houses you can buy. You just need to tell the gubment within 20 days of buying it, basically.

However, just as you don't need shit to buy crap in japan, you also don't get shit. Unlike a fair few countries you can't say 'well I own a bunch of real estate, so I should be given residency', you have to get your visa in other ways.
