yeah exactly. if ms could get media integration done well it wouldn't be bad. but look at all the crappy ads on a PAID service. psn is a better service and it is free...honestly i see it playing out the same way. all my nerd friends will buy ps3 or both and all the bros will go for xbox.

All you need to do is toss your account onto a flashdrive or something and bring it over along with the disc.

The person interviewed is the general manager at Microsoft Game Studios. AKA Microsoft employee AKA "mouth of MS". Will you only believe the things about the XBOX One if it came directly from Bill Gates or Steve Ballmer?

There is a difference between a grilling interview of one person and an official prepared statement buy the PR department...however, the interviews where the journalists attack one person like a pack of ravenous wolves typically get us more information...and more detailed information. We just have to deal with the journalists sensationalizing the info.

Now how is that MS fault, each game company is responsible for there own online services, BF3 had it own serves as well as other games its up to the developers to set them up. Now you may have found that you like the ps3 over the 360 and your right there exclusive are most definitely run great on there system but any 3rd part game that I played was better on the Xbox Skyrim, COD, BF3, and countless others. Why is that I wonder could it be because working with the cell processor was a pain and only 1st part had any incentive to do the need work to bring out it full potential unlike the Xbox which was much easier to work with for game developers. When you pay for live your not paying for servers you paying for a up to date on line serves with party chat, ever expanding features that add to gaming and media experience, fast download and updates that I don't have to sit for 6 hours to download over my fiber connection, and its up and running over 99% of the time, unlike the PS3 which was down for over a month because of hacking and I real loved that they wait over a week to tell me that they were hack nice move Sony. But it still does not change the fact that I will be picking both up when they come out I enjoy what both have to offer I just favor Xbox over PS for online play but both have there + and - and in the end we all have to way them for are selves. biggrin.gif

Well, any time you make a box it will look similar to other boxes.

Kinect is used to access your account. It will scan the room at the time you switch it on and log you in accordingly (not sure if it will recognize multiple users or not). This was stated in an interview. Xbox is always on. Kinect is always on. If you want to access your account I am thinking tape will not do you any good.

 

There has been much speculation about using Kinect to monitor DRM for movies. I think the possibility is there. Maybe even for age restriction. I think it will be used to advertise as well. Much like how your browser will store information about sites you visit I think Kinect can (and will) be used in ways to promote also (like noticing recognized brand names for example). That Kinect is always on and that Xbox is always on, that it requires syncing online periodically to use, it puts me off wanting one. I would be willing to bet there would be something in the new TOS regarding all this as well.

The games get linked to your gamer profile, wanna borrow a game let your friend use your account. That simple, a good deal of us don't even borrow games anyways. Plus the few games I actually buy for the console I will keep, PC is where most of us on OCN get their gaming done.

 

I can see lending accounts going down well, especially if your credit card is linked to it. There is something in particular you need to take in however. You cannot sign in on your account on multiple devices at the same time (this is how it is now and I sincerely doubt this will change in the slightest). It is also against Xbox Live TOS to give, or borrow, your account to someone else. This is for several reasons, including accessing content that person hasn't purchased from the marketplace, censors (for international accounts), among other things.

 

The game is linked to your account. There is a fee if someone wants to use your game when you are not signed in to your account on your, system or on their system. This is definitely known. It is quite obvious that this is to get a portion back from the used game market when you look at the models implemented to combat used game sales over the last couple of years.

 

Also, just because you may not borrow a game from a friend that doesn't mean others do not. I've been sharing games with my friends for years, since the Megadrive days.

 

What the majority may or may not do on OCN has no bearing on the majority that may use a console. Most people here are power users, so a console to them would be little more than a distraction. That, however, does not count for  everyone. Used games and borrowed games actually help developers. Someone who may have never of tried that game now has the chance to and if they like it, they may buy it, buy some DLC, and even buy a future sequel. Anyone who thinks used games hurt the industry needs to take a look at the numbers. Did used game sales hurt Halo? Or Call of Duty? Of course not. It's like saying piracy hurts the industry, despite The WItcher 2 selling well for a PC title. If someone doesn't want to buy it, they won't. Having that bit of give however may actually encourage someone to buy the product, or a future product. You could say that demos are more commonplace on consoles, and you would be right, but demos can be a bit hit and miss in this regard. Take Resident Evil: Revelations new demo. It's terrible. For me, off that demo alone, I wouldn't buy the game. However I know better.

MS has said nothing about a fee when selling used games. So far as we know all you have to do is deauthorized the game from your account and you'll be able to sell it.

 

See above. You'll be able to sell your games but the next person will likely need to pay to link it to his account. Why do you think this is going to be any different? EA dropped their online pass model for a reason. This is highly likely the reason. It's been highly speculated and it hasn't been officially denied. It hasn't been officially denied because there has to be truth to it otherwise you would have heard a flat out "NO!" by now.

 

Quote:
Offline time is still not confirmed for all we know it could be 24hr or 3 days or even more. 24hr was just a guess, nothing official and could change with future updates.

 

It could be changed, it could not. They are avoiding answering this properly, like a lot of other questions as best that they can. Why would you dodge these questions if there was no truth to them? thinking.gif

Why anyone would play Gears of War MP is beyond me. tongue.gif

So funny how everyone was hating the Wii U. Now everyone seems to hate the Xbox One more. I'm going around other forums and sites with people saying screw MS and go Nintendo/Sony. lol People are very finicky.

regarding kinect there are two types of people.


1. The people who sit wearing Google glasses in their living room recording the game or movie that they are playing while the kinect records them playing the movie or game while the servers watch over their location, family and every shared moment.


2. The rest ..





this is go time people, they want you in their database more than before, much, much more
