Its not just the DRM. Its the lack of information regarding anywhere that isnt America.


Yeah it suck that something that ms does in the US you cant get in the UK, forget that nobody else does it in the first place and therefore you cant get it from them either.

broken logic.

 


I don't think it's broken logic. Those services are meant to add value to the device, right? Well, those services don't exist in the EU, therefore the device has less value to an EU customer than it would to a US customer. A competing device might not offer that service anywhere, but that just means that there's no differentiation on that point to an EU customer.


I think you just made my point.


I don't think I did. Carl is saying he'd be a lot more likely to buy the console on launch day if all the services were available in his region. Y'know, if it had more value to him. It's not broken logic for him to say so. 


They will do something for Europe, they actually already have with the FIFA 14 exclusive content. Sure, that is nothing too big when it comes to actually adding value to the console because the exclusive DLC will more than likely have to also be paid for like any other DLC. Australia has a Foxtel service, which is a cable service here, for much cheaper than the regular price... I'll look it up.... $19.99 a month as appose to the $80-120ish or sometimes more a month I pay for Foxtel IQ, (I know, idiot...), it also has no lock in contract, no extra box sitting near your T.V which will in turn, also require another remote and you save money again with no installation fee. I downloaded the app and it's easy as piss. My girlfriend could do it with ease.... Getting to the point, This service has been on the 360 since, if I had to guess, 2009-10 and Australia is a tiny market as far as gaming goes really. You think they'll alienate the a much larger market in Europe, even after showing interest with FIFA? Advice? Wait till E3, if not then I think they'll do something within the launch window at the latest. Good thread.... It's difficult talking about the one here right now.... E3 can't come soon enough.

 

Thought I'd provide a link for everyone too look at. Other Aussies especially... I may jump on this deal with the Xbox ONE. I CBF doing it on the 360....

Then regular advertised prices here, Aussies pay shitloads for everything.

Also no, Day 1 already pre-ordered for me.



I'm still interested in the console, and do want it. But I can see why people are complaining about it, well the only reason why they're complaining about it. In all honesty I do hope they fix that registering games thing for people without internet at home. Maybe have it to where you can activate it at the store and the first xbox you play it on can use it whenever.



It's not that I play a lot of used games, not at all. I just don't like these f****** restrictions. If I'm coming home from a 2 month work trip and I can't even play on my game system, I payed hundreds of dollars for, only because somehow my internet is down, that's an issue.
Or on a game night with buddies we can't play a game, a friend brings over...common

Yes.

I was planning on a day 1 purchase and even though of my 40 or so xbox360 games, only 2 or 3 are second hand. I don't agree with this DRM bullshit on general principal.

I will now be getting a PS4 on launch and a WiiU when Zelda drops.

Microsoft can eat a dick.

I've slept on all this tragic news about the Xbox One. But in retrospect, it doesn't change my plans all that much.

I hate that it'll likely change my gaming habits. I won't be able to rent, borrow, or buy dirt cheap used games. But when prices go down and Halo 5 is released, its gonna be hard to resist. So I know I'm gonna have to buy it eventually.

For the next year or two I'm gonna be fine just playing PS3 and 360. I still got a large back log and games are still coming.

So I ask again! Did this news really kill any interest of ever getting a Xbox One?

I'm not impacted by any of the news, nor do I believe the policies are set in stone, so nothing would impact my buying decisions.

I buy my software new (I've bought one used title only because Microsoft didn't have it available -- until recently -- On Demand), and I have invested in a digital library.  I don't sell my software, nor do I rent.  Therefore this won't impact me.

This reminds me of when  the gold subscription price went up worldwide IIRC. When I used to live in Mexico, the price was around 500(or 600? don't remember) pesos for one year of xbox live gold. The price went up in the US because of all the services being added for them whici IIRC it was one reason for the price to up(which I didn't like that to begin with because those were not gaming features), but the price also went up in Mexico. Xbox live in Mexico didn't(and still doesn't I guess) even have half the features that xbox live US had, but still it went up to 600 pesos(700 if it was 600).

Basically,  xbox live MX gold didn't have ESPN or things like that which the US had and still the price went up.



Sorry for bad English.

 

Will get all the systems eventually as I always do.



I'm not really sure what the issue is. My understanding is it works just like PC games do the only difference is you can actually sale your games second hand.

The only one account thing is BS as the console can have more than one account.

TBH that one feature would be a reason to buy the xbox to me. I hate swapping discs out. I still mainly game on PC for this reason but the Wii U has been changing that with the ability to install DL titles. I wish I could put retail discs in the system and install them so I never have to swap a disc out.

What I am interested in hearing is since the games have DRM, cant be pirated, shared, etc. Developers should be lowering the price of software to compensate for the extra money they make but that will never happen.
