If you told them they would have fewer NAT issues if they supported IPv6, they'd start to care. ;-) They know enough to hate NAT.

Both gamers and content providers do not care. The gamers as they only care about the game itself and don't care about the technical mumbo jumbo. And the makers coz they only care about making money by producing content the gamers want. And you service providers are left with the headache of attempts to please both sides. 
If this wasn't the case, then why after 20 years, ipv6 ain't rolled out. 
Hence again I'd be voting for an ipv6 only day, but that will never happen.....

What we need is business tech reporters to continually report on 
these failures of content providers to deliver their services over 
IPv6. 20 years lead time should be enough for any service.
