In the preview program for the new dashboard update to the Xbox 360, Microsoft has explained the DRM policy for their upcoming Games on Demand service.
Fair enough, but I hope they would allow you to transfer the rights of the 'original console' downloaded to another one. Isnt't that what the license transfer tool is for?
But to be honest it doesn't matter. I have taken my memory card to a friends house(and I have also recovered my account there before too), and I re-DL the content. Works fine. And this will too. :)
I have tried this also, however its not without its issues. Only one gamertag may use the associated content purchased with that gamertag, without limit. What this means is that a secondary (your friends) console will have to hook up to the Internet permanently to verify the purchased content...and be signed into your profile every time to use said content. This makes sense if your at a friends/family's home, however its not practical otherwise.
Yeah, but how long will it take to download a game, thats the bigger question.
I'm tired of waiting forever so a game to be downloaded!
I hope you're not blaiming MS for the amount of time to DL a 6-7 gig game? If you want to complaine about the time it takes to DL a game, talk to your internet provider.
It's all based on your internet connection.
To bad MS didnt have the foresight to give me a bigger HD. My tiny launch 20G drive is to small to really be effective in using GOD. Also MS charges rip off prices for HD. MS is clueless, by the above with forsight about hardware. FACT
I don't think it was about foresight but about cost. Yes 20b was too small. I got stung with that. I had to buy a 120gb for £99, when I moved to the US a year later I had to shell out again with my new arcade because of DRM. Use my UK 360 when I want to play DLC such a Halo 3 and Gears 2 packs and Lost and Damned Luckily I found a 120gb for $79 on Amazon all inclusive.
^^ Yea..that was MS plan and it was in their forsight from the get go and sorry in this case clearly disagrees = denial
Bots tiny hard drives will last long with this service. Wow MS really thought that through.
Well you could always buy a bigger HDD for the console. Isn't that what a lot of Droids on this site did with their PS3? They said that they went out and bought a larger HD. I mean with all the Mandatory Installs and all. Wow Sony really thought that one through.....
mandatory installs hardly happen anymore difference with the ps3 is you can buy a cheap laptop hd for more space but the 360's is proprietary from microsoft and cost way more money, for a smaller size thats the difference
yeah your right sony did think it through that's why you CAN change your hard drive easily without voiding the warranty. If its anything sony did right it was that. Microsoft is a different story. Anyway i'm gonna have to buy a bigger 360 HDD for my cousin(and i), since he is horrible at maintaining disc-based games.
360's memory is f'd up,I have way more mem space on my PS3. Damn Microsoft!
Yeah that bottleneck RAM that forces third party devs to lower the texture resolution on their PS3 games really rocks.
I ran out of space cuz I have too many pics of u on my PS3 Shadow wink wink if ya know what I mean BTW I've seen one of ur pics so I had to get more...hehehe
Hmm...wonder when we'll be able to download blu-ray games on PS3......lol
OMFG ur so damn annoying,u know ur looking like a stalker now.And how the F did u get my pics perv
Look babe,if u put pics on the web anyone can get them.So I'm not the perv,its ur fault for putting those pics up ok.Oh and thanks for putting them up.Oh and I think I'll show ur buddy Hunter what u put up...man i hate to think what he will feel after seeing what your doing.
Wow.... My internet connection sucks so I can't see myself downloading games. I would not use this service anyways since MS provides such crappy HDD support. 20GB???!?! Seriously???! 120GB HDD for how much..... $100+???
what happens when they delete the game from service and you have it on your console then delete it to make room and you cant download it again? or your playing offline and the games dont work like the arcade ones do some times? there is plenty of questions and answers we need.
