Welcome to another week's The People Speak. If you were paying attention, we're double sizing The People Speak to make room for all of your awesome comments, thoughts, and retorts.
If you're new, we'll explain it again: write some witty, thoughtful, and all-around awesome comments to get your fellow revolutionary's attention. Nominate any comments you find worthy of The People Speak by replying to it and saying that you nominate it. It's that simple!
At the end of every three months, we'll draw a name out of a hat filled with names of comments who've been featured and who've nominated others. Every time you nominate or get featured you gain one entry in the drawing. Whoever we pick will get an awesome swag pack from our personal stash at the GameRevolution compound.
You're best chance at winning will come in new DAILY Tell GR Manifesto posts. Every weekday we'll ask you about a specific topic. One commenter will be featured from these daily posts NO MATTER WHAT. Commenters who are featured from Tell GR posts will earn double entries, as will anyone nominating comments from Tell GR posts.
To make it even easier, we'll be expanding The People Speak to the 10 best comments of the week! Let's get to it!

Tell GameRevolution: What do you want in the PS4?
Come on guys, you are all asking for stuff they could make in the Xbox 720 TODAY! It's the Xbox of THE FUTURE! I want a ****ing HOLOGRAM and vision correcting lasers to shoot out of it, an IV that shoots you up with drugs when your in game character shoots up, and hell for the safe side, some heart monitor system connected to 911, just incase someone ODs, or has a heart attack while playing THE GREATEST GAMES OF THE FUTURE EVER THAT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND! and with the shitty kinect and my awesome hologram idea, throw in some virtual strippers, or something. geeez. I'm disappointed in you guys. So practical and whatnot.

Tell GameRevolution: Screw the Wii U, Make Your Own Next-Gen Nintendo
You know, I don't usually reply to these types of things because people get so wound up that I don't like getting into the middle of it. Maybe I'm not passionate enough about the games I enjoy. I honestly don't care if the sequel of a game doesn't follow a predeveloped 'lore' of a certain universe. I care if its fun. That goes for every game. Its like reading a really good book series, then watching the movies, and having a clear enough mind to enjoy both for what they are, independent of each other.
Now, with that in mind, I say I am not at all worried about the multiplayer. The first game was enjoyable, the second game was enjoyable. I thought the stories on both were good. I can't imagine the developers just dumping a big pile of poo on us, after delivering two games that have both won numerous awards for how good they were. I don't usually do much multiplayer anyway, but I will surely check it out. Just take the game as it is, and don't let preconceived notions ruin your fun.

Tell GameRevolution: What Do You Want if Sega Made Another Console?
As far as software goes, all the major franchises on day one (or at least the first 3 months), strong third party support (no sh*tty dumbed down versions of games), a free game to get you started (even if it is from a previous generation) and a return to the good 'ol days of Nintendo's Seal of Quality, meaning no more shovelware. As far as hardware, just make the damn thing powerful.

Netflix Stays Netflix... What the Hell is a Qwikster Anyway?
Blast processing! It didn't actually mean anything, but by God I want it back!
Comment by Masterwabbit. Nominated by tinymhg.
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's Map is an Eye Full
Well, my guess is that Netflix realized "Qwikster" was already taken on Twitter, and it was owned by some stoner. Worst thing in the world to direct message the guy for suggestions on what to watch, and he sends you a list containing Cheech and Chong, the Joy of Painting, and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

50 MILLION Nintendo DS Units Sold in US
All this map has done is made me realize how ****ing cool it would be to live in a world with names like Haafingar and Falkreath. Then again...Throat of the World? It'd suck to end up there and find out that mother nature does in fact swallow.

Bioware Officially Details Mass Effect 3's Multiplayer
I haven't eaten 50 million tacos yet, but I'm trying my best.

Online Pass Coming to Battlefield 3 (Duh)
I think the experience one wants is to have the A.I. characters that fight along side of you be as real and even as flawed at times as a real live person. Without having to (make new buddies or friends whatever). There are some of us that play these type of games that either (don't have friends that are into gaming or don't want to be bothered finding friends or making friends to play these games). Some times one may just want to come home from work and forget about the REAL world. That mean all that socializing and stuff and just be at peace with oneself...well, peace until you ripe someone apart with a mass effect generated warp field or freeze them then incinerate them...or something. ah, ok, I think you get my meaning, JUST LET US PLAY THE GAME.
thinks for reading this. ;-)

"....and having to pay extra for it if you don't buy the game new is a major middle finger to fans"
Yea and buying a used game is like dropping your pants and giving developers a big fat hairy goat. As much as I hate the idea of online passes, there really isn't any other way for developers to profit from used game sales (sure they will probably sell millions, but if a game is good enough, I think they deserve it).
BTW you can buy a brand new game from amazon for WAY cheaper than a used game from gamestop so I don't see why people rave about used games.
