This pretty much confirms it for me. No chance whatsoever. My friends won't get the system, and I'll have no reason to get it if they do not. I'm waiting on Sony to lay down all the cards before I say anything on that front.

You can use the PS4 offline without needing an internet connection at all.

OT: Not even 200 exclusives will make me buy XBONE after this shit. It's like they're telling us to go to the competition.

So pretty much X1 needs to have some of the best exclusives ever seen for me to purchase an X1 now.

I will still not be able to buy/sell games through third parties such as amazon or ebay. I refuse to buy a game from Gamestop because they over charge and the games are never in the condition they specify.



I'm sorry people. But if you want DRM to not go forward.

Then you have one real option and one conditional option.

1) buy a WiiU. (EA will come back)

2) If Sony says no DRM next week, then option opens to buy PS4.

But under no circumstances should you buy a XBone.



I'm wondering about this every 24 hrs. thing. What happens if you are out of power for a couple of days due to a storm or something? I also can't imagine that this sharing games thing would allow for multiple people in different locations to all be able to play a game that just one of them buys. That would reduce sales by a ton. As far as being able to do it in one house, that's great because I always have to buy two of certain games (Halo, COD) to play with my kids so I'm liking that. I don't EVER do the used/ resell/borrowed thing so that means absolutely nothing to me. I understand that a lot of people do it that way and if Sony doesn't have something very similar then it seems liek MS is taking a gamble. We don't have long to now to find out for sure.



I LOVE paying for Xbox Live! I also love that my love for it pisses off so many people.

Agreed! Even Halo is not attracting my friends, and they LOVE the series. MSFT is totally dicking the Global South with this move. I carry my console(s) with me between 3 or 4 countries, and in 2 of them the internet is unstable at best. XBoner's DRM policy is not convenient for me in those times. I suspect a lot of people in my area will turn back to Sony (possibly Nintendo too) because of this, but time will tell. 

The offline play on the PS4 is SWEET! I like to have the option and not be coerced into anything I am not inclined to do. There are times I play offline for days.



 

Playstation = The Beast from the East

Sony + Nintendo = WIN! PS3 + PSV + PS4 + Wii U + 3DS

PS4 and Wii U here I come...fuck that shit...I have to ask a publisher permission to do what the fuck I want with a game that I just paid 60-70 bucks for? Yeah fuck you MS

"In video game terms, RPGs are games that involve a form of separate battles taking place with a specialized battle system and the use of a system that increases your power through a form of points.

Sure, what you say is the definition, but the connotation of RPGs is what they are in video games." - dtewi

Xbone is done

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.

"You can always play your games, and any one of your family members can be playing from your shared library at a given time."

Only one other person can play it at a given time. Plus it states that you can share your game with your family members in your own home. So there's going to be some way to limit it to your house, maybe through your broadband connection and same IP address.

what do you mean with out of power? how do you want to use a console then? but it also works with mobile broadband so maybe that would help you?
