This has been going on for quite a while, yes...

Complaining about it won't change anything
It would with most companies. Maybe not with these ones though. Most companies care about what their customers and potential customers think.

and simply not buying the system is still the best way to deal with it.
Indeed. It is helpful though to also explain *why* one is boycotting their products if one wants them to change their business practices.

The XBox (non 360) is certainly preferred by quite a few as an emulation platform for a reason.
I assume the main two reasons would be: (a) because it's x86 based and therefore easier to port emulators to; and (b) because Xbox games are crap, so emulation is the only way to play decent games on an Xbox.
