[IGN] Microsoft details on Xbox one used games and always online - Page 7

what this does is cut out the lower order in poorer countries / demographics in order to fill the pockets of those who are assumed to have more.. which again.. steam kind of does this.. but there in lies the EXACT point. IF You bought a $2000 PC you also had an Internet connection guaranteed but could still play offline, you (USED to buy) a console for $300 and job done + cheap used games and trades, because the PC was too much.

Now a PC can be bought to play games for $600 and the games are cheaper and not always online (you at least have a good choice still outside of steam).. this forces that area of the market to reconsider their next purchase from being an xboxone to becoming either a gaming PC or a WiiU

Win, Win

Seems I was a bit late to point out offline mode, but yeah. I've never had a problem with offline mode.

That's like saying being stabbed is better than being shot when a preferable alternative of being left alone exists. Having to check in every 24 hours isn't the least bit necessary, so why settle for less?

Has to check in every 24 hours... what BS. I regularly take my ps3 and laptop down to my uncle's shore house where guess what? No internet. Not a problem for Steam or the PS3 when I'm gone for a week so why in gods name would Microsoft think this would be a good idea? People do live in places and go to places that don't have internet. Definitely getting the PS4.

I fail to see how you make any valid point talking about 2003.

The XBox one is garbage if it is going to require people to establish an internet connection to play games. Sure, a one time activation like Steam, and you can play offline all you want for as long as you want. But to require the unit to connect repeatedly is a joke. Microsoft has literally cut themselves out of a large portion of the installed user base, by their own numbers over 50% of their current customers won't be using it.

All these rules...I can't believe anyone would defend Microsoft after reading that. Remember when you could buy a game and take it to a friends house for the night? We did that about every weekend growing up with the NES. I don't know what Microsoft is thinking to be honest with you.

First part redacted because I'm a derper at 2AM.

I'd say the terms as far as the online bit, used games and Kinect aren't so bad. A lot of this is open to whether you buy used games or prefer to support developers, or if you actually lend games to people (I don't personally). Could it get bad if they decide to start datamining with the Kinect, pr using it to spy in some way? Yes, very.Now that's it's out there though, that would be a huge hit if it was found out they were doing it (and there are plenty of people that il be looking into that sort of thing, let's be honest. Smart and inquiring minds out there). As long as they stay with what they're saying, it shouldn't be a problem. I can see where people would want the option to decide one way or the other, but honestly most people probably won't care, which is probably a good part of the reason they decided to go this route (packaging the Kinect with the console).

if ms releases a system that doesn't look like and actually isn't a cheap pos i might be more likely to get it than a ps3 considering way more of my friends have xbox. but this always online thing is killing me.

i don't get why americans always go for the xbox, it seems to be there main market. they look like cheap crap and then paying for online. maybe because with import tax, the ps3 comes out a lot more expensive? either way it sucks because xbox is the "social" system in the us, but its flaws always make me want to avoid. and sony always seems like they take their systems the most seriously, xbox and wii look like toys in comparison. ps3 looks like quality av equipment

This is a real question, but how do I E-Mail someone at Microsoft about this, and have someone actually read it.

My issue is, I am in the US Military. Currently I am deployed on a US Navy Ship and will be on here for about 8 months. I have my 360 and all my games with me, and its great. I often get to play video games on my downtime and stuff. There is no personal or commercial internet here. Strict Military policy prohibits connecting personal devices to any government network.

How am I suppose to do this with the XBox One? Why is Microsoft purposely choosing to not support the Military? This is the question I would like to ask.

A lot of people will care about this when it is too late to do anything about it. They buy their kids a Xbox and all is good. For whatever the reason they lose wifi or go on a trip to see relatives who have no Internet and nothing to do. Not to worry, the kids can play the Xbox we brought them...
