[Digital Trends] Jetsetter: How used games work on Xbox One according to UK retailers - Page 3

post #21 of 93
What you people don't understand is this isn't for Microsoft, at least not in it's entirety. This is to help developers. The ones that make the games you all know and love because it's getting more and more expensive to please you all. I don't like it that much either but if it has to be done then it has to be done.

This. This. This.
Hate what Microsoft is doing all you want, but its almost certain EA or multiple companies came to them and wanted this DRM. They probably offered Microsoft a kickback of server costs+ a couple bucks.

You can't trade steam games, you can't let people borrow your steam or battle.net account, you cant share activation keys(for the most part), you can't trade iTunes music. Sure you can trade cd's but if the technology to implement drm in them was there years ago- they would've done it.
The used games industry always had a limited life, just give up on it now, Sony and Nintendo will soon follow.

Boh hoh. The video game industry thinks it has some special rights to capitalize on third party sales for some reason and it's getting annoying. Join the real world where you don't have to pay Logitech a fee if you sell your keyboard on craigslist.

Maybe the devs shouldn't take vacations to Switzerland and Prague so they can give us lame fantasy tracks(your avatar) then?

Reading all this stuff makes me love being a PC gamer. I still use Steam, GOG.com too, and can't resell of course, but at least I actually own the machine I game on and can pick and choose what software runs on it, what OS, what hardware is in it, who I connect to over the Internet (Steam does have an offline mode).
Without used games, borrowing a friend's, etc., and now requiring internet at least once a day if not always, what is the Xbone besides a locked down midrange PC with a multimedia focus and an always on camera and microphone that you don't control?
I really hope it bombs big time, b/c otherwise I weep for the human race.

EDIT: This "its too expensive to develop games" routine is ridiculous. Obviously some developers and publishers are making a ton of money. Not just AAA games, which is hit or miss, but people at all levels. These people need to budget and they need to stop making games that require 5 million unit sales just to break even. I think the whole AAA, console driven industry is on the verge of either collapse or a major shake up.

If consoles move to the Steam business model, it's better for all of us.

All these used games are doing nothing to fund the next series of great games.

I have a feeling that if this doesn't work, free2play games will become bigger and bigger until the gaming landscape we have today doesn't exist.
