GameTrailers asks important questions about XBOX One, and gets answers.
'The kicker is here is that if you want to play that game disc on your friend's Xbox One, a fee will be required...They would then have to purchase the right to play that game through Xbox Live."' If I insert my used disks up into Bill Gates arse, will I have to pay a fee?
If he likes it enough, Bill should pay us. He's got plenty of cash to go around :P
I would pay a fee to watch that lol.
actually your wrong, you dont have to pay a fee as long as you sign into your account on the buddies xbox "Update - Microsoft's Larry Hryb has issued the following clarification: Another piece of clarification around playing games at a friend’s house – should you choose to play your game at your friend’s house, there is no fee to play that game while you are signed in to your profile." http://kotaku.com/you-will-... Gamestop is getting screwed over though
It also means you cant borrow the game to your friend, unless of coarse he has access to your profile. Its a flawed system.
Who cares either way it's dumb. So people that have family's can't play on different xbox in the same house or swap games with friends . To have to sign into a friends profile is retarded this is just a terrible move . I think m$ is has really outdone them selfs with this bs , I think this console is not going to do as well as they think .
Just say I let my friend borrow the game, say.. a single player game, a game he/she could enjoy alone, they'd have to sign into my account in order to enjoy it? Not worth the trouble, as far as I know the PS4 doesn't do this, thus making my purchase this Winter more solid than ever before. This is not the future of gaming, it's like you don't own the games you buy.
I couldn't care less about that clarification. I won't be buying the Xbox One on that bit of information alone. If I can't use Gamefly or borrow a friend's game without having to log into his account, I don't want anything to do with the console.
No Gamefly = no buy. I didn't know this tidbit of information. Now all I have to say is MS it's been a blast but I feel we have grown apart. Good luck to you, CIAO.
Did'nt you know Bill Gates is a robot? He would just keep spitting them out, saying "Does not compute".
Wasn't Bill Gates arrested once? He's probably had far worse than discs, so it wouldn't even phase him...
You guys know steam already has this right? If you take your copy to another PC, it will not work under another steam account.
Dont compare pc gaming to console gaming, since when do people take pc games to a freinds house to play split screen multiplayer for example. Us that have been gaming for over a decade know the feeling of going to a friends house for some multiplayer on consoles, the same cannot be said about pc games.
No more used games or even gamefly? Smooth move MS! This is even worse than the always online rumor! See how fanboys will try to defend this!
you can play multiplayer games with your friends, stream movies or TV shows right away, and enjoy the community and social features of Xbox Live. Xbox One can recognize you, log you in and tailor your home screen just for you. So this means that X1 will take my facial recognition and store it with Microsoft and its affiliates (Gov, Isreali military, etc) and log me into my friends X1 simply by walking in the room. Wow talk about being watched, beware of a drone coming your way
Gamestop won't like this. Just like almost everybody.
of course they won't work. but then again are you going to be able to find any used games for it since no one is going to buy the system in the first place?
Kinect is mandatory, serious BS right there, just looking at it is giving me the creeps Also, lets see how the Xbox die hards respond to the lack of BC, i want to see SDF Repellent response to that since he considers it a "BLOW" to sony EDIT: That dude needs some serious medication
According to greenpowerz, Sony is shaking in fear.
Shaking in fear, yeah. http://www.abload.de/img/la...
"but Xbox One does require a connection to the Internet" I still don't get this.. earlier I read something about having to log in at least once every 24 hours.
It seems no one is on the same page. It is really an embarrassment.
This is absolutely appalling! no one should have to pay a fee to get "permission" to play a used game.
I'm sorry, I really think MS has already lost this generation. Not being able to rent or borrow games is a deal breaker. Whoever made this decision should be fired.
I hate to do it but I'm being a HUGE PS fanboy today. I wanted to believe in M$ and hopefully see them change their ways, but they just took it to a WHOLE new level. If you are honestly ok with paying to play used games, having a device that won't function without a kinect, or having to have an internet connection in order to play you're games, ALL after you've paid over $500 for the console and another +$60 for games, then you must have an excellent crack dealer.
M$ is ran by morons now. It's more looks like it's 95% TV/music/moves and 5% games. M$ game gamers the middle finger. Now it's time for games to give M$ the middle finger. I speak with my $. PS4 for me.
It is all Smoke & Mirror's and deliberate not saying the thruth, will Kinect be mandatory ? They are saying it will be with every system, but will you be able to use the UI with the controller INSTEAD of Kinect. Must Kinect always be on and conected to the Xbox to make it start etc etc. Ask the right questions for crying out loud! Why do i need the gamerscore on the new system cannot play 360 games or XBLA Games? Might aswell start fresh. Anyways to pay a fee is lliteraly BS. So now MS always KNOWS where you are cause if you want to play your games at a friends house you'll need to sign-in with your account otherwise the games won't work. Pure BS. PS4 for me for certain. The Xbone has nothing better to offer...only stuff i don't need or want. Sorry MS.
I doesn't matter, die hard fans will buy it in droves.
The die hard fans aren't what determines success in this industry. If die hards determined the winners, Nintendo would be killing right now with their Wii U.
