[Forbes]With Xbox 'Durango' Requiring Full Game Installs, Is Microsoft Locking Out Used Game Sales? - Page 6

post #51 of 56
One of the big advantages of consoles is that it is easy to bring your games to a friends house and play them, to resale them, trade them in, etc. If not implemented very well I can see their online requirement turning off a not insubstantial number of their customer base.

Like me bringing my PC hard drive to my friend's house and logging into Steam, then running my Steam games off of that.

The HDD is tied to the hardware ID number of each Xbox. You cannot simply plug it into another one IIRC.

If we roll over and accept this digital only crap which is "you only license" argument, we can and will lose access to all the content we put our money out for.

Congratulations you can still use software which was sold by a company using a now 20 year old business model so of course your software still works.

Welcome to the 21st century BTW. Software development has become considerably more expensive than it was 20 years ago and so companies have to devise new business models to be able to make it work. That requires people to keep on buying the latest iteration of software every year and not being able to pass it off second hand, cutting the company out of direct sales. Yes there are some companies out there that will still sell you license free software which you can still use for the next 20 years but for the vast majority of companies this just doesn't work anymore.

Yea so lets just bend over for them and give up our rights and let them decide what we can access and when we are allowed to access our paid content in the name of "progress" rolleyes.gif

Rights, Freedom and logic obviously have no place in the 21st century. All hail the Corporations!

We DO NOT have to accept the lies that we are powerless as consumers and that this is to put food on DEV tables when it's about taking more control and blowing up the already fat publisher CEO pockets.

I pray to god if this happens another crash does aswell. A BIG ONE!

Why is everyone not taking this with a grain of salt? Honestly, don't take this **** seriously until the console itself is released.

Many, many Billions of Dollars of software licences are sold every year. Why would companies turn back to a model where they make less money? Shareholders demand they make more money. Big conflict there. CEO's getting richer is a side consequence of the company making more money for the shareholders. They reward it by paying the CEO more cash. Hell I would expect to be paid more if I keep on doing a good job, i'm sure you would too.

The world runs on corporations, wake up to capitalism. No matter how much you don't like it, nothing will change the status quo, only that new ways to squeeze out more profit will come along.
