Since the inception of the new Xbox from Microsoft, the burning question and a favorite topic up for debate has been about Microsoft wanting its users to pay a certain fee for installing a new game.
It's not part of my future.
I second that.I got plenty of other systems i can play with.I don't need fancy graphics and online play to enjoy my games.
I third that. I'm going with PS4 for the obvious reasons, if it follows Microsoft's example then I'm out. I can't have this. Gaming is taking a turn for the worst if this BS popularises. I'm turning to retro if Sony do this too. I'm sorry, but I'm not taking it. Gaming, what happened to you? Microsoft have really dug their grave on this. Also, what's up with all of this Avalanche BS? I'm sure he's being paid by MS, first he was praising the XBONE and now this? This is really conspicuous, goodbye Microsoft.
@Avalanche CTO F*@# M$, you, and anyone else who wants this change. I'd have no problem with digital downloads, if I for 1 sec. believed M$ was a understanding and trustworthy company, better yet the Xbox brand. But the fact is you can go to games on demand and games are as high as retail for digital versions, many of which are even more, and there's RARELY a sale on anything XBox related. Sony on the other hand, like Steam, has a February sale, Spring Sale, Summer Sale, and Holiday sale over the past couple of years, which is the right way to usher in digital only games. That being said if Sony goes built-in DRM infrastructure, always online (which they've already rejected), and flat-out insane anti-consumerism then I'm going back to Nintendo, and upgrading my PC in a couple of years when the UHD cards release. Screw everyone who wants and supports this.
Another thing if you want to slow down used games that bad, why don't the developers offer a trad ein program on their website or better yet through the console manufactures. Request a game trade-in, ship a mailing envelope, and give us a credit back on our PSN / XBL account. I mean do something, but don't force everyone to suffer from DRM and potential outages and console locks due to publishers and executives being greedy and trying to maximize profits at the expense of the user. PLEASE EVERYONE IF YOU'RE STILL PLANNING ON BUYING AN XBOX ONE. PLEASE BUY IT USED. DO NOT LET M$ BUSINESS PRACTICES BECOME THE NEW NORM FOR GAMING, OR WE ALL LOSE.
Wow. Keep talking, man. I want Just Cause 3, but you are really turning me off your studio. In fact, I might buy Just Cause 3 used, to spite you. Oh, wait...
Clearly their next game is exclusive anyway to X1. All the talk about the cloud and general positivity confirms it.
Wouldn't be surprised giving how much they suck up to MS right now.
That's it. These guys are officially on my developer sh#t list. I'm boycotting anything the do. This amount of knob ridding will not be tolerated by me. M$ anti consumer practices does not benefit us gamers in the least bit.
I wonder how much money MS gave them. All the dev/publisher who thing they are entitled to more money for selling one product with out any further effort can go to hell.
its simple they wanna cut out the middle man thats fine then drop the prioe in games to 30 bucks an u wont care if u cant trade it in an got robbed by gamestop in the process... this could be a step in the right direction if they lower the cost if they dont then there jus greedy pricks i would honestly rather to never own a physical copy anyways they get scrathed up an if u bump the xbox ur outta 64 bucks so go digital an lower prices its simple cut out the middle man an give us retailer prices then we both win i have more of a concern with the 24 hr check in bs i mean i know people like my cousin whos jus gettin by an cant afford internet he cant buy a new xbox if he wanted to an last i checked like 50% of 360 users actually were on xbox live so what ur gonna lose half of ur customers so that u dont get pirated cmon
