Microsoft may not be prepared to talk about its next-generation Xbox officially - but that hasn't stopped one of its employees referring to the unannounced console on their online CV.
"Video processing for DRM'd content"
Yep. Today just got interesting.
really, so what? i like watching downloaded video so this is not that great..
ughh...I really don't care about this issue anymore lets move on to what's really important here, the games! Fak E3! Lets do this now!
@THECHOSENONE - How are you supposed to play those games though if your internet connection is iffy for that day. Weekend is here...lets play games for 2 days this is going to be awes.....wait...internet is down ? So I can't even just play my games offline ? ^ this WILL happen
Outstanding. 100 times better that DRMed games. Evil
Remember the MS patent for using Kinect to monitor how many people are in the room and charge you to watch content based on the number of viewers? "design, implement and deploy video processing pipeline for DRM'd videos for indexing into the Xbox video catalog"
LOL! DRM'd video content is the defacto standard! Buy a Blu-Ray disc? DRM'd. Stream it from Netflix? DRM'd. Hulu? DRM'd! YouTube? DRM'd even though you can easily bypass it. Point being, at what point in time have we really had non-DRM'd videos? Well unless you talk about pirated movies and those free stuff. So I don't know what the hub-bub is all about.
"and "design, implement and deploy video processing pipeline for DRM'd videos for indexing into the Xbox video catalog" that's the rest. When you use the word drm twice in a short paragraph ur serious about it.
We agree... Sh!t just got real.
Hate to burst your buble............... all video on the xbox marketplace is DRM'd. Just like Netflix and most other streaming sites.
I hope your right.
You can't burst his bubble, he doesn't have any more. Geddit, geddit? :D
People shouldn't get worked up about this. Videos are already DRM'd on 360 and PS3. If I'm reading this correctly, he worked to develop a feature for NextBox that locks your purchased/rented videos and doesn't let you use them on, say, your iPhone. Again. Nothing new. It will probably be a feature that lets you use your video content across all compatible Xbox products (Win8, smartphones, 360, and NextBox, for instance).
How are those comprehension skills working out for you.? Understand what you're reading before you comment. Know about the xbox, know about something for crying out loud. Man if there is a news day about DRM video (all consoles use now) then pro Sony folks/media and normal media looking for hits are more desperate for hits and or more scared of MSFT's New hotness than I thought Epic -facepalm- I guess trolling isn't for you.
I wasn't trolling I quoted something that was posted. Trolling is your job. No one can say if this confirms the existance of drm on the nextbox for gaming, but it sure is interesting none the less, considering he is referencing the nextxbox. I would have thought you would have claimed this is all part of the elaborate conspiracy to keep people talking about the 720.
"I guess trolling isn't for you" You are the ideal candidate to teach him the ways.
@MariaHelFutura: It certainly looks like you are trying to stir the pot, when clearly this is the standard by taking that quote almost out of context. For a person that has so many bubbles, I would expect more. However, considering all the fanboys lately with ridiculous bubble count it doesn't surprise me if there are more.
Not sure that applies here. All video content is already DRM'd on the 360 and the PS3. This is nothing new. What he suggests is the ability to catelog it so you can pull it up on multiple devices, liek windows 8, smartphones, glass, etc. Nothing was metioned about games, it's completely different.
lol so now people are upset over DRM on video content? This is nothing new. But because it's dealing with the next xbox let the "doomed!" begin?
DRM'd content does sounds like its gonna suck, but we have to see how MS will use it in the Xbox.
I see the concern but you should have quted the rest of his statement. It seems he's refering to DRM for videos-_- " Part of Lai's responsibilities, his CV suggests, is to oversee "Video Processing for DRM'd Content", and "design, implement and deploy video processing pipeline for DRM'd videos for indexing into the Xbox video catalog". "
Crap. Another "rumor" Xbox article in the top headlines. That doesn't bother me at all. I do hate the few individuals who will try to spin and defend this like its a good thing. This isnt good for ANYONE, even the most hardcore, die hard fanatics of Microsoft. Anyone who says otherwise is in denial or have no clue. I hope for gaming's (and MS) sake that all these rumors are false.
Like I said you sony fan boys need to know what you are talking about before you comment. are you really that uninformed that you don't know the 360, and PS3 already has DRM'd video? Or did you already know that? and just decided to troll because this is a xbox article.
Who the hell is trolling or defending Sony? Insecure much because you read something on Wikipedia on DRM? Mind your mouth, it makes you look stupid.
DRM'd video. Nothing new here. This has been the case for most video streaming services. Am I implying this has nothing to do with DRM'd video games? No. It could very well be the case, but lets just stick to the facts of the article/blog before this gets blown out of proportion.
Yall overreacting. remind me of that one girl in class who's too extra with everything she does
Oh no¡ :(
Wow, some guys are trying to get information about MS next-gen Xbox even if it cost money I bet some guys are looking inside MS trash cans !! Just be patient guys.. the next-box wont fly away!!
Oh, I know they doing that...looking in MSFT's trash cans, I mean. Going through the trash is the first thing you do when you are snooping for information.
They should just name it "DRMBOX"
on n4g ppl still dont know what drm videos r...............go to play with the ps3..pls
Don't care about the drm. But its bullshit if I have to have a constant online connection to play video games. Not many people are happy about this. Sometimes we have outages. Sometimes I'm downloading stuff or working and I kill time by playing xbox. Ps4 thank your for saving me.
WOW. I cant believe this made it to one of the top Articles. Just sad on so many levels.
'Next Xbox' listed on Microsoft employee's CV Rats.......sinking ship........Ummmm?
cool can't wait the true next gen almost unveiled :))!!! get excited
