I'm a vet currently serving, and this "once a 24 hour cycle" thing might sway my decision over to Sony. When we deploy and have some idle time, virtually all of our gaming time is spent offline... whether it's a single player game or in private console to console player matches, simply because connectivity is pretty scarce. Granted I haven't been mobilized since '10, but if things haven't improved then Microsoft is making my decision very easy.

in the xbox revel they said they have plans for situations like this





Xbox One Won’t Charge For Used Games, Has Plans For Military Use

Finally, some good news. According to a source close to Microsoft, the newly unveiled Xbox One will not require a fee to reactivate and play used games. Instead, it’ll require a regular authentication check of every game as it’s being played — hence, the required Internet connection. This hasn’t been, nor is it likely to be, confirmed by Microsoft until E3. It sounds like they’re still working it out internally. That may explain the contradicting reports about the Xbox One’s Internet requirements and whether or not it blocks used games.

In related news, Microsoft has confirmed they are experimenting with offering codes for people in Internet-free situations, like soldiers on active duty, to let them play offline.

Referencing the portion you highlighted. Shouldn't it make us all wonder why they'd even go through the trouble of making "codes for people in internet-free situations" when they could've just made it so people could play offline without a connection... period? What's the wait time for a code? How long is it available without getting another one? Is it worth the trouble?

Exactly.

Probably free for military, and a fee for everyone else.... which should begin to make sense to anyone watching. It's their way of making non-internet users pay more to play.

Na i never had too many problems with lag except for slow downloads.
Party chat and the fact that no one has mics are 2 of the main problems with it.

@ the bolded, thats the thing you prefer playing single player i prefer playing online.
I've always said thats what seperates the 2 systems.
show me a game on pc thats using 8gb of ram, hell 12gb of ram.. then come back with that bullsh*t a.ss pc is better then consoles...face it ps4 is rivaling all pc games at launch, glad Planetside 2 and Warframe is coming...


and if PSN online was really a.ss then there wouldnt be 78 million users utilizing it to play online...if ur internet connection is a.ss, your psn will fail. period.

there is no difference between xbox live and psn if your internet is optimized for gaming.

denial is the theme around these blocks..

These guys are pretty much saying fu*k my rights, fu*k my wallet, fu*k myself...I just want to play.

That's what I'm upset about. That's what these companies want. We're witnessing theft in broad daylight.
This. But hey, if they want to throw away their money thats their business. I can honestly say that for the last 6 years or so that I have been a supporter of Xbox....Until now. I just see their console straying away from what true gamers want. I like where Sony is going with social gaming and from what I hear they will have party chat, which is something that is missing with the PS3. PS4's presentation was sick, and I really like the direction they are headed with Indie games. E3 is going to be make or break for both consoles.

funny thing is...everybody who is upset are the same ones who enabled microsoft to think they could do this...everybody was on the 360 d!ck so hard that microsoft thought they could do anything and be ok

how many reviewers and gamers (people with both consoles included) have said "the 360 version is better"?? which was true in some cases (skyrim off the top of my head) but still microsoft was given this sense of "we got this on lock no matter what we do" by all of you so just stfu and accept it or buy a ps4

im honestly done with these threads now

and

The only complaint i have is the used games thing but i'll get over it, as long as they have dope games and the online is good im fine

You're not even buying the system so why should you care? sh*t i'm not even thinking about the PS4.
So were gonna act like people dont be ratin eye candy knowin damn well they will never meet or smash them?? Were gonna act like people claim who can rap or not?? Y call another rapper whack if ur not gonna even listen to them? Its the same concept. Xbox is fu*kin up but will claim they r better than ps, if there at E4, it every gamers business. They need to stop saturatin the market with this weak half sedated garbage

If this sh*t takes over gaming, I'm sure the failed attempts at music and movies will get another look. I'd rather not wait to find out.

I just don't want anyone to buy this sh*t until these companies back off.

Same old recycled response I read the OP and most of the links and I understand alot of the media is slamming the XB1 but all I really asked was why are you so personally vested in this anti MS campaign? You've stated your case we all understand your stance but why beat it into the ground? You've made thread after thread post after post and I dont think you have led anyone to change their personal opinions. Whats the definition of insanity?
Lol don't bother asking that, I did a few posts ago and ish got avoided like a plague. I think it gives some posters a certain type fulfilment when they join the XBOX One hating party.

Even now I haven't even had a response to secuROM (the most popular type of DRM on PC gaming) being developed by Sony. To some people in this thread, DRM is evil (yes it is) and was created by the masterminds at Microsoft, and whatever you say that says otherwise = you are sheep!

The second link in the OP as well as several posts in this thread k!ll the comparison between this and PC's.

You want to talk about people "hating" the Xbox, but you pick and choose what you want to read and comprehend and you're throwing this back at everyone else?

You're stupid as sh*t.
