Xbox One details: connecting online, licensing, Kinect privacy

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Xbox One details: connecting online, licensing, Kinect privacy

Welcome to the digital age, luddites. Steam is working out just fine, there was the same backlash before but now we get great sales, redownload anytime you want, and play on multiple PCs. The benefits of steam far outweighs the cons and discs do not last forever, they get broken, lost, or rot which means you are SOL.

Disc based gaming and lending out to friends was a loophole waiting to be closed, because it's more fair that the devs get paid per person who plays the game. They just didn't have anyway of tracking that so it probably was built into the price of the game. This way it will probably be more fair instead of eventually making games to be hundreds of dollars to account for the leechers who don't contribute back anything even though they get to play the game for free or nearly free as a loaner or rental.

Man if Sony tries to force this crap I'd better see some people sucking up and holding to their word.


A guess...Sony will have something, but won't be anywhere near what MS just announced, and perhaps EA is already punishing them for it (see: Titanfall, Fifa exclusive mode).


Problem is will they settle for something just a little better because "welp it's better than what M$ has!"

Classic bait and switch. I can see this happening.

This is fucking terrible. Anyone who buys an Xbone and endorses this kind of policy is doing a disservice to gaming.

I could actually swallow the no-used game bullshit.

But the 24 hour online check seals the deal for me. No way in hell I'd get this console.

If Sony does the same, btw, I'm out.

I fully endorse the benefits Xbox one looks to offer with its always on aspect, and I don't see anything dealbreaking with these policies... So I guess I'm doing a disservice to gaming.

Looking forward to building my personal Xbox One gaming collection that I can access anywhere and anytime.

Of course you dont have a problem with anything microsoft does ever.

You like what they tell you to like.

If sony was doing this and microsoft was not your sentiments would be the opposite.



In 15-20 Years time, when the Xbox One is no longer supported and the servers shut down...

What will consumers do with Xbox One videogames?

I swear its like you've known me all my life...

Please stop telling us it's the same thing as Sony is doing. There are huge differences. If you feel the need to spin this to make you feel better about your Xbox One purchase, then perhaps you need to rethink your loyalty



"Play offline for up to 24 hours on your primary console"

---------

So, this is clarified and settled then, correct? This is now official? If so, this marks the first console ever to be dead on arrival for me. I do not even begin to understand why they are doing this. I hope this fails and anyone who mimics it fails (Sony...I want clarification.) as I selfishly wish to continue my beloved hobby in the future.




- Up to ten members of your family can log in and play from your shared games library on any Xbox One


Does this mean if I buy one game, then me and nine of my friends can all play that one game at the same time? or is it that they can access the game but the system first verifies that nobody else is playing it and then lets you play it (so technically only one person can play it at a time)?

Nah HUGE fanboys are easy to spot.

Even if they think they are not fanboys well looking down on another group of fanboys well showing the exact same behavior as those fanboys.

Are you for real? NO, you CANNOT access your "Xbone gaming collection anywhere and anytime" because you MUST BE FUCKING CONNECTED to the Internet.

So you go to an island, to a farm, somewhere not connected, you cannot play at all.

Seriously, I see from your history here that you like MS, but I don't think it's reasonable to defend this kind of bullshit against us all.

You will see me attacking Sony the day they do the same bullshit to us. Write that down.
