Xbox One: Unless Microsoft Changes Their Policies, I’m Out

Yesterday evening, Microsoft decided it was high time to outline a few of their official policies regarding the Xbox One, used games, privacy, the Kinect and their internet requirements. They created three separate documents that each summarized how certain points of their new system would work.

Never have i seen someone with so much____________ in their brain.

Minato-Namikaze1930d ago

Where exactly is his brain that you speak of?

Wizziokid1930d ago

"it will sell over a hundred millin."
what's a millin?

@ Wizzokid
Maybe this is what he's talking about?

Wizziokid1930d ago

@GreenRanger_
Wait the Xbox One sells melons?
Maybe I will buy one after all...

Blastoise1930d ago

The Xbox one does indeed sell melons. You just can't share them with your friends without paying a pre-owned fee.

I apologize in advance for my repost of my previous comment, however I feel it holds great validity and was not responded to nor answered by any of my fellow gamers.
I find myself confused as to the true feelings and motivations of the current dedicated gamer. For countless years I have heard repeatedly from avid gamers about how much they love the developers that bring them such huge and entertaining titles year after year. And how if you are a true gamer you would adamantly support them with your hard earned dollars and buy the game new. Even going so far as to condemn those who would dare to pirate a copy, and essentially steal money out of their pockets. But now that Microsoft has bravely decided to implement a program that guarantees a higher profit of new game sales for developers, the community once again backslashes? This is a scenario where one can not have their cake and eat it too. Either you are for the Developers as I am, or you are for the Used game, GameStop, market. Gamers must decide where they stand on this issue

@ wizziokid,

It may not sell melons, but I heard it will sell pizza.

We buy new games because we have the right to sell them off, should we choose. There's nothing brave or noble about killing rights. MS has chose them over us (well, not you).

I fully support devs by buying new, and how are we rewarded? With even more restrictions, pay walls, day 1 DLC for incomplete games.

What you're saying is, people should just lay down and take it for the sake of these starving devs, but to hell with the gamer.

@Frigid:

I think I speak for everyone on this site with principles when I say I really hope that your internet goes down after you purchase an Xbox One. Yes, it's come to that. It's pitiful the way that some people just give their rights away.

Fuq third world countries. Fuq poor people, Fuq soldiers in the armed forces. That's what you are saying, son.

ArnoldSchwarzenigra1930d ago

Yeah, who cares if companies exploit the people who give them money. Who cares if they start to restrict your usage of your legally purchased property.

-EvoAnubis-1930d ago

Your one bubble is very well deserved.

ricochetmg1930d ago

I can't believe you people are stupid enough to buy this console.

dedicatedtogamers1930d ago

Mods, can we please add a down-bubble option that says "Viral Marketer"?

ArnoldSchwarzenigra1930d ago

But since you can't get lower than one bubble, any comment from them should automatically start with fifty disagrees. You have to work for people to disagree with you to that extent that you have one bubble and people on this site are really eager to disagree..

dedicatedtogamers1930d ago

@ Arnold

We need to bring back the Open Zone (I think that's what it was called iirc). Anyone banned or with one bubble can go spout off there.

gano1930d ago

Please but back the open zone.
That shyt was magik.
I've never laughed so hard in my life.
People will get ate there.

I couldn't careless about the used game policies on either console because I do buy all my games new and support the devs/pubs/console makers.

Where I do have a issue is with the 24 hour check in. When I spend say $500.00 on a console and then another $60.00 for a new game who in the hell are MS to tell me I can't use my console to play the games I paid for for any reason? The bulk of my gaming is in single player campaigns so why should I need to check in with big brother to play my offline campaign? I have lost my cable/internet for almost a week in the past after a storm even though I still had lights & electricity. So there is no way I would ever buy a console that won't let me game after 24 hours just because I lost my internet connection. Then throw in the Kinect/Skype tracking everything you say or write which MS & the Government have unlimited free access to.

Just a FYI I also will pass on the PS4 if it has a similar check in process and could restrict me from enjoying what I legally bought & paid for.

I hope you enjoy your XBone and I also hope you lose your internet for a few weeks or that live goes down for a extended period so I can see what you have to say about this then and if you still think it's no biggie when you have a $500.00 paper weight until big brother oks you to use it again.

Mikeyy1930d ago

It'll only sell 47 million tops. That's the number of Live gold subscribers.

M$ looses by default.

I wonder how people can be so obtuse.
The article is fine. You (FrigidDARKNESS) on the other hand, should grow up and learn to leave a constructive comment.

josephayal1930d ago

unless Microsoft changes policies? The good thing about dreams is that they don't cost money

brianunfried1930d ago (Edited 1930d ago )

Maybe we should accept the fact that the glory days of gaming are over.

thehitman1930d ago

What is the madness you speak of Sony is still making playstations.

brianunfried1930d ago

You're right, screw that! I'm not giving up without a fight!

SexyGamerDude1930d ago

I sense another gaming crash coming on.

Aceman181930d ago

You know I've been telling my friends that, and what's funny is it was an American company that helped cause that crash and now its another who's probably helped start the next one.

Damn I'm ashamed to be an American right now smdh.
