At least you admit that you got conned by a scam. There is a plethora of mindless zealots that still believe dongles are the best thing since cookies. I also got a dongle, but it was a gift so i didn't spend any $$$, and even i am pissed at them because they left a lot of people with a useless stick scam.
Next thing i'm doing is supporting naughty dog and visceral games by buying The last of us, and Dead Space 3. It's 1000 times better than buying a piece of crap stick.
