They have been saying the always on DRM and no used games for nearly every new generation. Ill believe it when it happens, but right now im skeptical. Sony has been talking about doing this too. Microsoft isn't the only one.

I agree with this 100%. All it's going to is push people to CFW solutions and other ways of gaming IMO. Traditional console guys/gals who aren't used to the DRM or applications like Steam we PC users see aren't going to be too happy.

I mean, look at c4eva. So long dudes like him are around proving Microsoft that just because you say "No." doesn't mean someone won't try and succeed to a way around it.

No you won't have to pay for Xbox Live. Use a Silver account, which is free.

And Sony applied for a patent for the exact same thing, so I wouldn't be calling them the good guys just yet, although their reasons for applying are yet to be revealed.

Eh I don't really see the issue with this. But I suppose I'm earning enough these days that game prices don't really bother me - the target demographic is in the under 18 category for most Xbox games though so that could be an issue.

The real winner for me this time around will be the console that can simplify DLNA to the point where I have a program on my computer than can stream to the console without any hassle. I'm hoping that the Microsoft Smartglass or whatever it is, is the solution. Not holding my breath though.

I wanted to ask, are people upset by this because many can't resell their games after they are finished them? That is the only reason I can think of...Yeah, there is the up to 20 dollar price difference, but am I right in assuming that you aren't happy that you can't resell used games?

If I played consoles I'd be pissed about both the online requirement (since not everyone has access to internet in their home. Some use dongles and stuff like that) and also, yep, no ability to buy preowned games or trade in your games. When I was younger I used to buy games new all the time. Especially on birthdays and Christmas and money I'd saved up. Yet, in-between those periods I'd want new games and such so I'd trade in the ones I never played and get other preowned or new games.

If they want to build themselves on the back of this and make billions, then decide that's not enough and they should make even more, unfairly, unjustly, and against all consumer rights... then screwwwwwwwww them.
