Please stop comparing the DRM MS is using to what the PC world is used to, especially those of you who do not even game on a PC. We do not have 24hour checkins. That was completely unnecessary. Only a handful of games require continuous connection to the Internet. Diablo III being one of them.

Games from Steam only need the initial authentication and you can play offline after that with no checkins. MS could have done the same thing. One time authentication of any new game you plan on playing on your Xbox One. That would have served its purpose just fine. The 24hour checkin is just stupid and unnecessary.

It does not further prevent piracy. Nobody is going to forego playing new games just so that they can continue to play the used game they just sold.

It makes zero sense. The worst part about it is that unlike a PC, you would first have to hack the system to be able to play pirated games. If you have the skill set to hack the system, it will be very easy to then modify the OS to eliminate the 24hour Internet requirement. So it does not even prevent piracy anymore than the standard system protection does.

yeah, but still if anything the one thing I've learned is that BXGS is entertaining....especially when a n*gga's at work and you absolutely CANT take this sh*t serious
true its just kind of downing like when the Xbox 360 and ps3 was announced I got into with n*ggas on here from time to time but it was about the games though, we've known about these systems for months now and 90% of the fussing has been about DRM always online and used games


I miss game debates actually being about games lol

but on some real sh*t I can't deny what I see and feel I read M$'s policy last night and felt sick as a gamer and honestly a little angry I do feel Hovi in that regard

im pretty loyal to the xbox but im not hardcore gamer like many of you but that 24 hour policy is basically saying you have to get internet ..so if you have hard times and can pay for it or move and it will be a while till u get hooked up what ever you cant enjoy a 600 buck game box.. its a very poor think to really dig ur heals in the ground with. i pay 600 bucks let me update my sh*t when i feel like it .. i dont play games on a regular basis just when a top tier game drops ..they are gonna really feels some pain on this and they took alot of focus away from some of the pros of thier box...i imagine the second or third generation will be drastically different unit

Actually microsoft fixed both systems for free, nice try though
I went through 5 red rings of deaths. Every time bought a new Xbox and put the old one in the box and took it back to Sam's Club where they don't check serial numbers... ain't got weeks to wait on my system.

Yeah, I've been pretty upset the moment I read the terms.

Even MORE upset that we have folks like yourself willing to bend over.

You're no different than a dog that just wants his bone no matter where you throw that sh*t.

Now companies are bold enough to believe everyone is as stupid as you are.


THIS , you bunch of ignorant sheep!!!!

MS better pay google to speed up their fiber for the whole USA. Not everyone who owns an xbox has the internet, and if you fall on hard times and have your cable shut off then your one will be useless. Imma stick with the old joint.

Real sh*t Ra, why do you think I email you about what you really think about gaming? For 1...your boy values your opinion and for 2. I always thought you would favor towards one system/console (360, M$) rather than the other. But thats not the case, these n*ggas can argue back and forth about which is better, they don't even realise whether its Sony, M$ or even Nintendo the decisions made by these companies effects ALL of us.

Yeah I have my personal issues against M$ but its not enough to make me disregard basic common sense

We haven't even got to the GAMES and n*ggas is already saying "M$ is on some bullsh*t"

The always online thing is where most of y'all get hung up on.

Microsoft is taking away the right for you to own a game.

When you walk into a store, pick a game off the shelf and check it out...

You bought a license to play the game. You don't have any rights to the game itself.

Which means you can't:
  • Give the game to anyone you want
  • Sell the game to anyone you want
  • Play the game forever

The online requirement is in place to make sure you're not breaking the rules. You have no rights as a consumer the moment you create an account on that console.

You don't see the big picture. Few of y'all do. That's the problem. We're all fu*ked if you think it stops with Microsoft.

The next consoles will be on some serious bullsh*t if the Xbox One is successful in any way. I can promise you that.

God forbid DRM being successful with video games. That just mean corporations will give it another shot with music and movies.
