Contrary to some rumors, Xbox One Games with Gold titles can be played if you take your console off line.
well there ya go all that hooha for nada... kinda surprised no MS guys came out and squashed it earlier to be honest
I'm not saying this is not true...but the rumors said it was a online check-in format. So let's wait at least 24 hrs before we go saying 100% false. I also wondered why no comment from ms on the matter...maybe its that. Just saying.
I do believe the site in question said you couldn't access them at all if you weren't on an active connection constantly, you also alluded to such in your own comments on the article I believe
Why wait 24hrs to discredit a rumor that has no source at all? It was literally pulled out of thin air.
Hunter..... Many things pulled out of the air..... Bitching on MS is better than playing games on a make believe PS4, its the way for many here..... On both sides to be honest..... Everyone seems to have many options now..... Good times, you would think....
Wow I'm not ..lol wow. Look I hope for the best. I hope its like they say it is. I really do. But I'm just stateing we should wait to jump to any conclusion. I said 24hrs because that was the check in time...is all. I hope they will not put a check in at all.. But givin the history of how ms does things there is reason to keep the bad possibilities in mind. Period. Keep me out of the war sh!t. I see things for what they are, ms has been the king of catches and small print antics. I choose to be cautious of them. if all is well then great...awsome. But i wont forget what they did and wont trust them until proven.
Why MS need to reply to a random blogger that don't know what he is talking about? It was already put out when it was first published on xbox.news back on May 13th that games for gold for XB1 requires a subscription and the topic on needing "constant internet" was silent and resulted in zero hits with Google search. All a sudden, a random person claim something on the net and people think he knows something as huge as claiming 'constant internet connection' needed to run the games when all the big sites like IGN, Eurogamers didn't. It is just common sense that that rumor was false but for some strange reason , 75% of the posters there want to believe it is true. smh
single player modes now can be played offline? No shit!
Figured the rumor was a bit heavy-handed.
I vote for a ban against the site that claimed otherwise for hits. It was front page and everybody seemed to like it. Ban it and do so now!!
If we went and banned every site that put out false information then we'd have none left.
http://www.inquisitr.com/12... http://n4g.com/news/1520915... See the words rumour anywhere on that article? It was a hit mongering article pushed onto us like fact, not a rumour at all. BAN IT NOW! Journalstic integrity needs to make a comeback and it starts by weeding out the garbage like this.
"If we went and banned every site that put out false information then we'd have none left." Ok. So what's the down side?
If any site deserves to be banned its VGfakecharts and the fake made up numbers every week, that the guy has to change every time official numbers come out, it also seems to be he has to lower the xbone numbers and raise the sony ones to get them where they really are.
VGchartz never claims to be an an accurate sales measure. They claim to give out rough estimates based off of their retail sources. They pretty much confirm that their site is 100 percent rumors.
Ladies and Gentelman, this is called journalism. You find out the facts before you blast stupidity all over the internet.
So it's not a rental service like psn games ? You can play off line but still requires gold membership?
Xbox One games are... what I'm assuming they're doing is the same model as the PS+... they put a time limit on the license akin to the time limit remaining on your sub... that way the game will know the date/days remaining on the license and once you hit said date it'll remove access till you renew Live 360 games as far I know are remaining on the old model, once they're free they're free for life (assuming you get them within their 15 day span)
What? It works exactly like ps+... As long as your membership is active, you can play your games... Online or offline...
I was wondering How would xbox live know if you have a current membership if you are offline after you download the game?
works same as drm on xbox music pass, the expiry date is included in the file. This way you can still play when not connected
That deads that rumor.
This is so stupid. N4G what is this site? Is this a site that holds journalistic integrity or is this a site that just posts bullshit rumors and flamebait articles from no name sites every day? Either do a complete facelift of this site to make it better or this site is going to go down the shitter
from the flamebait article last night where i stated that someone should link ms saying u have to be always online i seen alot of people on n4g agreeing with the dumb article, and i know alot of them wished ms had done that. now n4g should bring the article back up to the front page like they did earlier really sad journalism on here with a clear and distinct bias and hate as to go so far and make up a story about xbone and drm
Lol Next gen feature for sure.
next Gen is here
Sharingan let's play!
Well to be fair, a lot of negative rumors about MS actually ended being true. You can't really blame anyone for believing this.
Except the fact it had ZERO evidence...
Wait does ps plus do that cause when I was in hospital I asked my mum to bring me my vita and the ps plus games would not work I assume there is a way like steam where u can go into an offline mode although it was this time last year when I was in hospital so maybe they added it in an update I'm not sure why neither have had it since the start it can't be hard for the systems to take note of ur current time left of gold/ps+ and allow u to play for the remaining ammount of days without connecting to the Internet
So, can all the people out there that were so quick to slam me over this, attacking me with walls of MS-hate text apologise now? Idiots.
no, they wont, they will move onto the next lame article from another lame site and jump onto that bandwagon in between the almost daily bits about resolution, sharpness of images etc between the two consoles.
