And of all the people that are part of the Xbox One's target demographic, how many do you think that this is the case? How many do you think don't have reliable internet connections? I'm going to take a shot in the dark and say that it's not really that big of a number. Just sayin.

Wonder whatever happend to the good old days when friends would simply play splitscreen instead of total online gameplay.

If Online had outstanding conenction, was free or not so expensive, it would be a greater expirence

You must be a young gamer. Otherwise you'd understand why people have a problem with the direction that MS is taking the Xbox One.

First they are killing the Rental market. No way are you going to spend $5 to rent a game, then have to pay a fee on top of that to MS ($15-$40?) to be able to play the game on your machine.
They are messing up the Used Game market with the activation fee and the Authorized MS Resellers.

Now, it seems they want publishers to use their "cloud" computing and using online connections for games, even single player. Why? Because if the game has to check in with home, they can record who owns it, and if they person sells it, they can get their cut of the pie.

Do you understand that last sentence? It's about them getting part of the used market money. Nothing else. Not about piracy, not about Jtag's, not about using your console to mess with other people online. It's only about MS getting money for used games.

I 100% agree with what you are saying and where you are coming from.

 

But sometimes I wonder If I were a developer would I want the games my company came up with to be rented out or to be traded or sold as a used game. Maybe they profit from rented games but probably they wish that game was just sold instead of rented. 

 

I truly believe that in a few years Video Game market will go fully digital and physical discs will always be like an extra director's cut thing where you have to pay premium or something like that. They will kill the used game market pretty soon.

 

I was a sucker for physical media but now I am so happy with digital media such as Steam or Windows as a USB that I actually removed my DVDRW from my computer biggrin.gif

I look forward to the day car manufacturers (or anyone else that makes things that can be resold or rented) jump on this train of thought.

totally irrevelant.

 

Person A sells his car to Person B to get a better car. While Person B cannot afford a brand new car but a used car.

 

So the car company sells a new car while also Person B uses their services for maintenance purposes.

 

For many people, they can not buy a new car unless selling their own car first.

 

Not so much with softwares so I always find both comparisions wrong.

 

2 extremely different things.
