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.
Honestly your loyalty to MS after this pisses me off. I'm probably going to get banned for this rant but its a bunch of bullshit and you're being an idiot to accept such a destruction of your rights to ownership.
Its not about being always online and you won't get it anywhere... just places with broadband internet.
Its about owning what you buy and being able to do with it as you see fit. These policies lead to you not owning anythign ever. You only own it as long as MS decides to support the service or the specific game.
The current status quo where that type of draconian policy was already deliberately held in distinction between owning the physical media or digital copy. While still not a best case scenario, at least you had a choice. Now that choice is gone and and instead you own nothing.
I sincerely hope you are in the minority so this policy dies with the Xbone. Hopefully Sony sees the potetial differentiation it can create between its product and stays clear of anything like this.
