Xbox One kills game ownership, here's what Xbox fans say

"Microsoft finally clarified much of its policy on used games and online restrictions with the Xbox One, and the news is grim for those who actually believe in consumer rights. With its new system, Microsoft will take the final step in stripping gamers of their property ownership, and control every moment of their experience. "

Dear MS,
You know that with the 24 hour connection deal hackers are going to try and break their servers making everyone in the world who has a Xbox One essentially have an overpriced blu-ray / cable box.

first1NFANTRY1651d ago

This will be a hackers wet dream. They pride themselves on cracking the "imposible". I can already hear them gathering equipment and formulating blueprint plans on how it's gonna go down lol.

M$ is in for a world of hurt. I for see alot of lawsuits from people.

Wizziokid1651d ago

They could even target a persons account and play their games essentially

xHeavYx1651d ago

Military people won't be able to use the cable box now, that means more business for Sony

hazelamy1651d ago

just wait till the hackers figure out a way to access people's kinect cameras.

After this breaking news story of them being a "provider" of all data do you really expect us to believe that MS is NOT going to sell all of our data and NOT listen in on/watch us even though they say they are not? - http://www.washingtonpost.c...

Not trying to sound like a douche or something, but MS obviously messed up big time :/

MS loyal=multiple suckers! wow! i'm am so sorry ms fans. i read the article and it looks like even MS loyal are upset about this.don't worry there are other game console's to choose from.

i'm done defending this sh%t, I got about 10 xbox 360 only buddies who are switching to ps4 only this fall, I owned both consoles this past gen and I'm going PS4 only this fall. MS would have to f*cking blow my mind at e3 to undo the damage they have done.

i'm a gamer and MS is busting by balls.

License*

Just as it's always been

FunAndGun1651d ago

except today I can still sell, trade, or lend my license away without a chain and whip.

hazelamy1651d ago (Edited 1651d ago )

bah, bah baaah baah.

that's the language you sheep use, right attila?

attilayavuzer1651d ago (Edited 1651d ago )

No its just that a lot of people are crying foul about having their "ownership" taken away when none of us owned anything to begin with except a plastic case. I don't think most people are realizing that this drm is probably going to become standard across both platforms and a few thousand angry core gamers boycotting them isn't enough to change that.

Garbanjo0011651d ago

Exactly garos82, that is my point. How the hell does it go like this:

MS makes a console.

Publishers make a game.

Publishers release a game, through MS.

Game goes to player.

Game beaten by player, ie: player gets bored.

Sells game back MS.

MS sells game digitally to another person.

That other person takes game, never really owns the digital version, owns a license to "play" said game.

Person plays the game, beats the game, gets bored, and then sells the game back to MS, who probably just sold the game at pennies what they are going to earn in dollars when it is sold AGAIN to another person digitally.

Am I missing something?
