Gamers won't give up on AAA games despite DRM, Used sales and Always online

Gamers are likely to not stop buying AAA games regardless of any DRM, Used sales and always online issues. (Call of Duty: Ghosts, Halo 4, PS3, PS4, The Last Of Us, Xbox One)

Gamers WILL give up on the console DRM, blocked used sales and always online.

Was talking to a gameStop employee. he told me that you can sell your games all you have to do unsubscribe to the game before you sell it. When you first start playing you connect your account to that game and its yours when you wanna sell it you unsubscribe and you will be able to sell it back. sooooo how's it blocked? it's not conventional but it is possible.

The GameStop I was just at said they won't be accepting trade-ins at launch. No word when either. Microsoft really needs to step their communication up. They're making the PSN Breach communication looks like the best thing since sliced bread.

If they both had DRM I would have switched to PC.

gamers will SAY that they will and then jizz their pants at the latest triple A exclusive for the console of their choice and completely defend it til death until it comes out only to either call it overrated a month later or constantly rage at anyone who thinks that any other game is better -_- because "gamers" are more whiny than teenage girls arguing about whether or not edward or jacob is hotter, only a matter of time before the "team ps4" shirts start showing up

Yeah, you keep thinking that.

Maybe some die hard crazy fanboys will buy this junk, but for many consumers like me who were on the fence and had an open mind about buying the console providing it could offer what we wanted, ms have completely lost us, oh well I may just purchase a vita instead

When those Xbox exclusives don't sell well, they will be forced to release them on PS4 eventually or lose money.

As much as some of the exclusives such as Forza 5 look promising, I'm not buying an Xbox One. Ever.

I wouldn't be so quick to say what gamers wont do, if history is correct than gamers will leave AAA games behind if the console rubs them the wrong way, Sony had plenty of AAA games on ps2 and they never thought gamers would jump from Sony to Mircosoft just because Xbox was cheaper, what happened? Nintendo had plenty of AAA games and they never expected gamers to jump from N64 to PlayStation just because PlayStation had the more mature games, but what happened?, and now Microsoft never expects gamers to leave HALO, gears, forza, etc.. just because of their anti consumer policies, but it looks like it about to happen

it very well can. they think this cloud shit is the future. who knows? maybe it is. as far as always online goes, I'll get back to u IF my internet ever goes down and I can't use my X1. I need to experience this frustration before I go shooting down their new direction. Remember the high speed requirement for the original xbox? that wasn't popular back then. If you STILL don't have internet....I mean...wow...thats crazy. For god's sake it's the digital age! At the end of the day, the PS4 coulda been $600 and it wouldn't be an issue. There are always gonna be ppl throwing money at whatever product they're familiar with. MSFT isn't SEGA. It's not going anywhere. PPL been shooting down XBOX since 2001. PS fans were NEVER gonna buy the X1 anyway. it could have more games, lower price and free online and u guys wouldn't budge to the other side. Best thing to do is buy 2 of the 3 consoles and enjoy.

I thought sheep was mainstream most popular anyway since pc drm means nothing to me I will be more selective in my console gaming though looking forward to forza and xboxone.
