As someone who trades games in regularly, this is weak.
you can still trade games in. READ

Trade-in and resell your disc-based games: Today, some gamers choose to sell their old disc-based games back for cash and credit. We designed Xbox One so game publishers can enable you to trade in your games at participating retailers. Microsoft does not charge a platform fee to retailers, publishers, or consumers for enabling transfer of these games.
It gives control back to the publisher. Most publishers will likely allow it as long as they get a cut of the sales. And consumers can sell them however they want, too.

Can get game first day on the console. No more standing in line at Gamestop for 2 hours behind a bunch of nerd f*ggots. Just Cop the game, download and play....and can play while downloading/installing pretty much putting you in the game at 12:00am on the night it officially releases. This should also make releases easier for publishers cause they won't have to worry about distribution issues.

They pretty much bringing a Steam type model to consoles

So yes, 24-hour offline rule still in place. You can sell and buy used games. You can play on multiple xboxes. You can let friends borrow games (limited), you can turn off Kinect and have it be as if it's not there at all.
but but but the Kinect is always required

Doesn't sound like you can. Like Ego posted there are a lot of advantages to it being always online and apparently the system needs the cloud to function the way it was meant to function, but they really are saying fu*k you to a lot of people with this move. I just didn't believe they were that willing to basically lose an entire group of people to the PS3 with this move.

shut the hell up

PS3 online is trash, and this is coming from somebody that owned both systems.

"less gifted" , are we in a talent show?
You see people like you is that microsoft take advantage. You have 2 systems one that play online free and another one that requires a $50.00 to play online, and still you choose to pay the $50.00.

You see what I mean less gifted, You probably ride to school in this....

I got 2 friends lists maxed out, and one with like 40-50 people on it....with the exception of about 6 or 7 people the rest have been on my lists for atleast 3-4 years, some longer. The 30 day thing won't even be an issue for me

And when stores like Gamestop go out of business cause everyone is buying digital and their % of used game sales is a fraction of what it once was, then what?

how can they take advantage of me when I'm willing to pay for a better online experience?

and with the way MS is talking about the cloud service, the yearly subscription will be well worth it

This sh*t is actually masterful thinking to be honest.

Xbox presents the new system at the Xbox reveal, showing off the IU, the TV capabilities, more TV capabilities, and sports.

They get that out of the way without showing off games.

They move on to a presser where they release all the info about the Kinect, the 24 hour online controversy and the used game policy.

Now at E3 the only thing that will be a focus is video games.

Yup. Literally laid it on the table, now all they need to talk about is the games/software.

The new system does place some restrictions on things but it also opens up new capabilities to gamers and it also benefits the pockets of publishers......It also is built to put a dent in Gamestops model which was something publishers been screaming about for years...

Exactly. Why n*ggas acting like digital ain't the future anyway? PC gamers seem to be dealing with not being able to trade in games or loan games to friends just fine, but when Microsoft does it (and they STILL ALLOW THOSE THINGS) it's a problem

Gamestop went from being a regular games retailer to an empire. Profiting billions per year off a second hand market that publishers couldn't even try and get a dime out of. Microsoft is enforcing what all your favorite publishers been crying about, they don't want gamestop to succeed like that.
