The exact language was "participating retailers" but yeah, whatever this trade-in system is that Microsoft has setup will likely suck for Mom & Pop game stores as it will obviously favor large retailers like GameStop, Amazon, Best Buy, Target, Toys R Us, etc. From a gamer perspective, there will likely be little impact as the overwhelming number of game trade-ins are done at major retailers and not Mom & Pop stores.
Again, Microsoft clearly stated that they will not enforce any kind of fee for trading in Xbox One games but is leaving it up to third parties. This is the same policy for Sony and the PS4. There's enough BS policies from MS about how the Xbox One handles games to complain about without the need to make up new ones.
Yeah, the lack of support for game rentals and loaning games to friends plus the limit to only sell a game once (outside of retail) are huuuuge downers for the Xbox One and completely unnecessary. There is no issue with trading in games with GameStop, Amazon, etc however.
Reason #2 is completely off base and I'm tempted to report this submission as "fake" because of it. Microsoft clearly stated that it will support the ability to trade-in games at retailers and is leaving it up to 3rd party publishers to charge a fee or not. There will not be a case where retailers like GameStop, Best Buy, Amazon, etc decide to exclude Xbox One games as a result.
I noticed a small freeze at the beginning when the second player joined the party but really nothing after.
FWIW: SmartGlass can be used on Windows 8 devices (PC/Tablets/Phone), Android and iOS. Not sure about Sony.
There would be some improvements. The most notable of which would be the increase in world size. The Xbox 360 version is limited to a defined area (can't remember off the top of my head) and players can quickly run into the world's edge. Another improvement would a large increase in the number of players online. I hope they do something about allowing custom textures but that's probably asking too much of Microsoft and Xbox LIVE.
Depends on how it is setup...which we and Blow know nothing about at this point.
I'm sorry but Blow is coming across as increasingly unhinged with his hatred of all things Microsoft. I know he feels like he got a raw deal with Limbo but he doesn't have anything to back up this assertion. And, even if Microsoft reaches the 300k claim in part by using virtual servers...so what?
I think it looks more like an HTPC case than a VCR. I have a Silverstone case that looks very similar but just a different color.
Possible if it is subsidized with Xbox LIVE subscription.
I'm thinking GameStop is probably not considering the 360 Core Edition in their comments.
Looks like those that disagreed with jcnba28 were the correct ones. Activision confirmed with me that theghostsarereal.com is not one of theirs. It is fake. Do not use!
Well, maybe not. The WhoIs for theghostsarereal.com shows it was created today and not by Activision. Additionally, the pre-order link only takes users to Amazon and has an affiliate link in it. I've contacted Activision but this looks like a site trying to take advantage of pre-orders.
Indeed, nice catch. I've updated the article with that. Thanks. And to the disagree, what are you smoking?
Microsoft registered XboxFusion.com in 2004. This is fake.
Walking and exploring in Journey is a player interaction. And yes, I am familiar with David Cage and Heavy Rain and Indigo Prophecy. However saying, "But it's David Cage!" is not a good excuse for sidelining the player as a viewer the vast majority of the time.
@MariaHelFutura: And this why I didn't like MGS4 either.
