Surely the same as every console. "Plug everything in. Go."
aCasualGamer  +   681d ago
And right there at the end... in 0,2 size Times New Roman... "by playing you agree with all our spying".
egidem  +   681d ago
At least there is a manual.

Today's games don't even come with a manual. I really miss opening a brand new game and smelling the booklet inside, followed by an intense period of looking at the inside pictures and contents...

@ aCasualGamer FYI Sony wouldn't be able to sell their console in the US if they didn't agree to the same policies that MS does so... yeah... And in case you forgot, yes you can unplug Kinect.

Helps a lot, but the point you made still stands.
Blackdeath_663  +   681d ago
you can't place the console vertically. well that sucks no place for it on my desk. then again it was designed for the living room.
darthv72  +   681d ago
that was like...one of the first things revealed when they were talking about it.
mark134uk  +   681d ago
i know they dropped the drm stuff but doesnt the xb1 still require you to plug it into the net for a one of download before you can use it?
USMC43  +   681d ago
Initially, yes.
djplonker  +   681d ago
yeah day one patch to remove the Drm software although the hardware is still in there somewhere though!

I don't get why hardware is mentioned in your post?
djplonker  +   681d ago
because it is still hidden in there and all it would take is another patch to enable it...

software and hardware walk hand in hand!
darthv72  +   681d ago
Didnt really know DRM came in flavors. software AND hardware.....
HolyDuck  +   681d ago
@DJPlonker Ohhhh, you think DRM is a hardware thing... okay lol.

Edit - Microsoft must be patching the DRM's drivers... lol

When it arrives I am gonna tear my Xbox One apart to find the demon DRM and rip it out. It'll be like an exorcism.

Patch that Microsoft!

@holyduck (aka 2 bubbles)

Ok so how did the xbone know if you put a used game or a new game in then?

how were they going to block used games without being able to read if it has been used before?

"here you go"

DRM on purpose-built hardware

Many DRM schemes use encrypted media which requires purpose-built HARDWARE to hear or see the content. This appears to ensure that only licensed users (those with the hardware) can access the content. It additionally tries to protect a secret decryption key from the users of the system.

"software and hardware walk hand in hand!"

No. More like Hardware is subservient to software. The whole thing with the cloud says that. The one time online registration says that.

That has always been MS's weakness and blindspot.
XB1_PS4  +   681d ago
@Djplonker, that "DRM hardware" is all ready there, and is in the PS4 as well. They both read the disk to find out if it's a bootleg game, or the real thing.
mhunterjr  +   681d ago
Lol man they weren't using hardware to tell of a game was used. They were using the 24hr DRM check to make sure you were playing a game that you had previously registered. After you installed a game, you wouldn't need the disk anymore.
sigfredod  +   681d ago
yes it does, until you do it will have a giant paperweight on your living room
KillerByte23  +   681d ago
The console requires the internet for a day one update which will take around 15-20 minutes depending on your internet connection.

after the update process you will be able to unplug the console from the internet and play offline
MizTv  +   681d ago
So if you don't have Internet you still won't be able to play?
Cirehpsa  +   681d ago
Yep, won't be able to play at all.
H0RSE  +   681d ago
The same thing is true with Steam on PC. There is an offline mode, but you initially need to register online. I don't see how this seems to be such a foreign concept to so many people...
WeAreLegion  +   681d ago
You have to actually download Steam from the Steam website though. You also have to download all the games. The difference is...that's on a computer.
toddybad  +   681d ago
Also the case with the PS4 I expect.

Everybody has the internet now so why does anybody even comment on stuff like internet required?
rainslacker  +   681d ago
For those that don't have the internet and can't comment about it perhaps?
n4rc  +   680d ago
Everyone is worried about other people all of a sudden.

I always found that funny..
MrPerfect813  +   680d ago
I never understood the big deal with internet required either. Is there some other way to get patches that i dont know about.
SignifiedSix91  +   681d ago
Unless of course the games come with the patch on disc. Would be the sensible thing to do, you know?

Not everyone has internet xD

Thank god i do though :3
shaun mcwayne  +   681d ago
I usually dig out the controllers first, give them a good grip test.

dunno why, just do.
vikingland1  +   681d ago
I agree, there's nothing quite like holding a brand new console/controller in your hands feeling the weight of it smelling it oh yeah! LOL.

I'm assuming you'd just plug it in and play? Like I doubt it's going to be seriously complex task.
ilovefatgirls  +   680d ago
doesn't show where to your insert credit card must be a misprint or fake
Kydawg  +   680d ago
Step 1: Poop in your hand. Step 2: Insert poop into Xbox. Step 3: insert credit card into butt.
NarcolepZZZZZZ  +   680d ago
This is so amazing! I always suspected that we'd have to plug various cords into their respective jacks but this CONFIRMS it! Your move Sony.
Stuart81  +   680d ago
Wow it didnt take the PS3.5 fans long to start DRM argument ...again.
