Edge sources: Next-gen Xbox games 'will require online connection'
 

 
Next-gen Xbox games will require an internet connection in order to function and block second-hand use, according to a new Edge report.

Microsoft will move to make Xbox Live an "integral" rather than "optional" feature of the next Xbox, with retail games made available for download, the next-gen expose in Edge's latest issue claims.
Physical boxed titles will remain on sale in shops via 50GB Blu-ray discs, but "activation codes" will require verification online, the report adds.

Once verified, sources claim discs will have "no function beyond the initial users - effectively eliminating the second-hand games market as it's currently known.

Edge's information is said to come form "sources with first-hand experience of Microsoft's next generation console."

"Given its experience with 70 million-plus 360 console stats, Microsoft has accumulated enough user data to make the decision to go online-only with its successive hardware one that adds up," the Edge report states.

"Microsoft's hand has been guided by the PC gaming landscape, and viewed through a particular lens it makes sense, even if unbelievers will take some convincing."

It adds: "Ultimately, Microsoft has asked itself a simple question: who wants to play games on a next-generation Xbox and yet doesn't have access to the internet? The answer: not enough to make a considerable difference."

Worst thing they can do. No one is going to want to deal with losing their progress in a game when they lose their connection. Sucks on PC and it'll suck on the consoles.

I love laughing at all the bullsh*t rumors and the wack speculation that follows after

Thread ain't even been up that long and one n*ggas calling for a boycott, one just declared Sony a 'winner'(Sony would love to think the way you do btw), and another one just quit gaming....


All over a rumor article regarding consoles that we don't even know really exist and/or have seen....We don't have a name for the consoles....haven't seen em...don't know their prices....we known nothing about them at all........and n*ggas are making lifestyle changes


Ain't this the same rumor that came out last year for the supposed Orbis sh*t when they said Sony was going to try and k!ll the used game/second hand market. A year later and its still hilarious

Word? Show me some rumors that Sony and Microsoft have come out and said were true

Y'all really can't be this stupid. This same rumor was spread last March about the Playstation 4









They even had this same exact rumor damn near a month ago about the Playstation 4



true, that last part will raise many an eyebrow. The report notes that new Orbis games would ship either on a Blu-ray disc or as a PSN download, and if you buy the disc, it must be locked to a single PSN account, enabling you to play the game, save the whole game to your HDD, or label it as "downloaded" in your account history (making it free to download at a later date if needed).

Then, if you trade that disc in, the customer buying the used game will be restricted in some way. Kotaku says "it's believed used games will be limited to a trial mode or some other form of content restriction, with consumers having to pay a fee to unlock/register the full game."

Additionally, playing a game will require being online - similar to many PC games today, you'll need to have a PSN account and be online to get started.
Please don't fall for these magazines/blogs trying to get traffic to their wack a.ss sites by posting bullsh*t

Dio you should know better than that. Shouldn't even support this bad journalism by spreading it

PS4 and the Nextbox will not do anything like that. The console industry ain't there yet

We're talking about the same exact company that charges people to use subscription services they're already paying for. Also the same company that charges you to use INTERNET EXPLORER. Anything's possible with MS.

Read my other post that completely destroys this rumor, don't skip it on purpose to post bullsh*t.

This same rumor came out about the PS4 last year...then again last month


So if its true neither of them are playing used games...and the PS4 also won't play PS3 games

Sony is also the same company that 'gives you games' then as soon as your paid subscription runs out they 'take them back'. "Anythings possible with Sony"

I can't wait for official word on the consoles to finally drop just so dumb a.ss posts and threads stop getting made on the daily

What do you expect from a subscription service? They're not just going to give you 12 free games

And I saw your post. All it does it make it seem more likely that Sony will do the same thing in some way.

It doesn't make it seem like Sony will do anything remotely like it


THESE ARE JUST RUMORS....Son a n*gga from Edge, CNET, Gamespot, IGN or who the fu*k ever could put up a rumor about the PS4 coming with fur on the console controllers and you n*ggas would speculate for 10 pages even though you know in your heart of hearts its 100% Grade A bullsh*t


Just wait until the 20th or whenever the fu*k its gonna happen

Right, anything's possible from the company that charges for online or the company that launched with a $600 console.

I also have to remember that you Jesszman are a young n*gga...and don't really know sh*t about the past


But the PS3 also had to f!ght off these SAME exact rumors

The Sony Playstation 3 will still be able to run pre-owned, rented and borrowed software. Responding to the latest rumors, Sony has denied that a new Digital Rights Management system, which would not allow gamers to play previously used games on their console, will be employed in the PS3.


Sony Computer Entertainment’s UK PR Manager Jennie Kong stated,

“I would like to clarify that [the Playstation 3 locking out used game discs] is false speculation and that Playstation 3 software will not be copy protected to a single machine but will be playable on any Playstation 3 console.”

Reports suggested that Sony had planned to use the new technology in an effort to combat video game piracy. The reports arose after a patent for a disc technology surfaced with Sony President, Ken Kutaragi, listed as an inventor.

If the new system had been adopted, Playstation 3 software would have only been accessible to the first machine it was run by. Once an authentication code was read, it would have become unplayable on all other consoles.

The news comes as a huge relief to gamers who feared the end of trading games and multiplayer sessions with friends.



Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawn. Pointless rumors by wack sites looking to drive traffic to their URLs
