[Hexus] Next Xbox will be “Always On, Always Connected” - Page 5

post #41 of 189
Hold on i will be right back Microsoft is invading my home with a swat team.
post #42 of 189
Awesome! Microsoft is so doomed without Bill at the helm. I could really care less though, I hate console gaming to begin with so no biggie. And for the record, or course it's for DRM, that's the only reason for "always on." Anyone claiming differently like EA is full of crap.

Yeah, I get that but it's not really important. It's no different than not being able to play because you don't own the system. So people without internet won't be playing. Simple as that. I doubt that will hurt the sales in a way people think it will. Everyone I know that plays on a 360 has it online. If they didn't have internet, they wouldn't own one to begin with because all they care about is XBL anyways.

Lol... sorry boss, I don't buy it.

If you can afford a $200-$400 gaming console, that's about a year of Comcast service @ $19.99 promotions (which are easily obtainable for first time subscribers).

94% of America has access to broadband Internet, and the percentage is probably even higher now. Sure, some of the remaining 6% may own a gaming console and might want the next gen console, but I'm willing to bet there are more people that don't own one than people that do (within those 6%). Worldwide access to broadband may be a much lower percentage for obvious reasons. It's a business move and a rather intelligent one in my opinion. They'll lose thousands, even millions of sales to those that oppose it or can't have Internet, but they'll regain just as much and more by doing away with used game purchases alone; add to that the anti-piracy clause and maybe even barring rentals (your only option to play a game will be to buy it new). I'm sure Gamestop are defecating bricks right now.

Well I think it was more about how there are areas that can't have Internet...the people can afford it, but it just isn't available. Though they can typically get Satellite Internet...but that is really over priced crap. Other areas will have decent speeds available, but might come with a crazy low cap...I've seen people with 20GB caps.

However, the amount of gamers in these areas are really low. Their sales will not be missed. They might not like it much, but their outcry will not be noticed.

It's not the internet provider thats the problem, it's the fact that Wind and Storms affect the internet where I live. I have the fast internet that you're talking about. We should be fighting for the People(us), not against the People. Well, I guess I honestly could careless because Console gaming has become a joke especially with it's dated hardware in it from 2010, but it just sucks because consoles do get some exclusives pc's don't.

PS4 FTW! Considering i'm an Xbox fan, this is kinda disappointing... I have a consistent internet access, so this really isn't the problem, however the issue is the principal of lack of freedom to do what we want with our console, what if i want to play where there is no internet access? What a burn that would be.

So far we have heard:
Playable used games: PS4 > New Xbox
Always online: PS4 (Not confirmed) < New Xbox

Ironically Steam requires online access to play majority of its titles in your library, so it's not very different... granted there are work arounds with some of the game files. Steam off-line mode sucks for the most part... verify cache my @$$, it doesn't work most of the time... haha

Well Sony said it would be up to the publisher to allow used game sales or not...so in other words there will be no used game sales. they are a publisher's worst nightmare most likely.
