Xbox One details: connecting online, licensing, Kinect privacy

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

With Xbox One you can game offline for up to 24 hours on your primary console, or one hour if you are logged on to a separate console accessing your library. Offline gaming is not possible after these prescribed times until you re-establish a connection, but you can still watch live TV and enjoy Blu-ray and DVD movies. 

Fuckers.

Now all I need is 100% confirmation from Sony to see if I'll also be skipping a PS4.

Its all there. Everything about the online connections, used games and Kinect.

 

  • Every Xbox One owner has a broadband connection
  • Console needs to be checked in every 24 hours
  • 1 hour if youre on a seperate console, accessing your library
  • Offline gaming not possible after the above time requirements, though TV, Blu-ray and DVDs are still watchable
  • No rentals
  • Used games determined by publisher, at certain retailers only
  • Can "give" a game to a friend who has been on your friends list for 30 days, can only be done once
  • YOU are in control of what Kinect can see and hear
Just a few points, the rest can be found at the links in the link.

 


Im indifferent.

On one hand, its good that they are giving hard answers for us all to see. 

On the other hand, Im still not sure if this is the console for me.



Come to think about it, this is all in favour of Gamestop' like entities.



Ex Graphics Whore.

Oh snap. Only being able to give your game to a friend ONCE is a HUGE setback!

The ability for up to 10 family members to be playing your games at the same time is good, but as it is right now I can give my game to as many family members as I want, albeit we can't play at the same time. This is one aspect I guess you could let them slide.

But no rentals and only being able to trade in at registered retailers is just a big NO! Whenever I sell my game I do it privately since it gives me a better deal.

Xbone having to be online every 24 hours is also going to cause another storm.

Overall this is a complete mess and nothing really changed from the reveal. I don't see myself getting the Bone ever.



 

This changes nothing for me. However I'm sure many here will be turned off by these connection requirements.

I thought that ws more of giving your game to one friend.

Well I think this actually improves the licensing for my situation over the 360 ways. Now my entire family can play a single game I've bought at the same time. This has always been an issue for me as I always have to buy one copy , eg. Dead Island 2 , and then rent another one or two copies so I can enjoy the new game with my kids at the same time.

The hole 24 hours play without an internet connection is absolutely not a problem for me as I would freak out if the internet went down for even an hour (which rarely ever happens).

These license terms seem complete acceptable to me.

Why not? What features mentioned in the OP would affect that decision?

I think if Sony follows suit gamers will be forced to comply eventually. Too many games that gamers love would be on those two consoles.
