i can’t speak to the current state of Gears 4, as i haven’t played since 5 came out. My thing on Apple though, admittedly is based on my own experience and what I hear others say. I had an iMac desktop that last me a long time, however ultimately ■■■■ the bed when several of my programs required the snow leopard OS (or whichever cat it was) yet my computer always stated insufficient memory for said download…even though I had the available space. I forget EXACTLY how it happened but that was the gist, in order to achieve something I was required to download something, however the downloading of that something was impossible due to changes made to my OS on Apple’s end. Same thing happened with my first Iphone, I couldn’t download any updates because the updates, having been designed for new phones were (in my mind) intentionally made the exceed the ability of the current iphones, forcing people to upgrade.
Again, that’s just my interpretation of my own experience, and it was several years ago so I don’t remember exactly exactly exactly how it went down. FWIW my current iphone, which I’ve had just over two years, is going strong.
