Damnit now I just want to see some good ole Ray Harryhausen movies.

Am I the only person that caught this?
Now they are being successful by using the term:"offline game".

Did you catch that, if you install a "OFFLINE game" then you will not have restrictions, that is the condition.

What defines a "OFFLINE game" What if only one game has the label of offline game on it? Most likey candidate would be a turned based rpg.
Heck what percent of games don't have a component of online on 360 games right now? Microsoft almost required it with few exceptions.
If there is a term "OFFLINE game" as a condition. for you to not have to get online.

Microsoft qoute:An internet connection will not be required to play OFFLINE Xbox One games....If they where not trying to fool you it would
read:An internet connection will not be required to play Xbox One games. see the difference? I don't care if it drops to 199 It is still taking away my used games rights!!! plus as I pointed out the DRM issue is conniving explained to fool us? This is what Microsoft meant by they will make this CLEAR. (MORE TRICKY) This could just be a feature on the back of the box. So if they dont make a offline box like they have a 'online multi player' capable box on the back of the disc it is okay to still drm you to there hearts are content!!!

Man I wish they gave us a launchdate to look forward to.

solidjun53752d ago

@indysurfn Why are all your posts about the same? Me think you're spamming.

zeee3752d ago

The Oracle gave us a prophecy. Come 2013, PS4 will be "The One".

S2Killinit3752d ago

I wouldn't be surprised if Microsoft is fooling everyone. They know once you make the mistake of purchasing their hitlerbox you wont be likely to return it.

ThanatosDMC3752d ago

Anyone know how much the pre-order is? I really wanted to order this on newegg instead of Gamestop... but looks like Gamestop it is.

GameStop is $100 down, Bestbuy is $25 there are no limited spot for preorder of PS4, but there is limited spot for Xbox one.

Benchm4rk3752d ago (Edited 3752d ago )


Seriously dude give it up already. That's like the 3rd thread where you have posted the same dribble. It has nothing to do with this topic. We all get your but hurt about the Xbox One reversing there DRM. Get the f#$k over it. If your not gonna buy one fine. Mine and thousands of others a still pre ordered and I couldn't care less what you think. Shut up and go get your PS4 on launch day

fr0sty3752d ago (Edited 3752d ago )

indy, give it up. It says "offline game" because PS+ is required to play a game online, so they can't say you can play an online game with no restrictions considering that requirement. If they did just say "game" instead of "offline game", it would be false advertisement. Your argument is dead. Go find a new one.

The_Con-Sept3750d ago

PS4 pre orders are going fast... At my gamestop it is at 78.

Unlimited doesn't mean jack squat. How the hell are they supposed to hold as many pre orders for a console in those tiny stores????? Even a semi truck can barely hold a few hundred thousand of them.....

( oh come on that was funny!)

@ indysurfn

No one really cares about what Microsoft's evil plan is because it hasn't been widespread yet. In due time people will realize what the hell is going on. But for now let it simmer

@Xwow Man curse you because when I read that comment all contents in my mouth like my coffee had to be cleaned off my monitor and workstation...thank you! :)

Sitdown3753d ago

They just better make sure I get my launch day edition before they go to crazy.... I got the email from Amazon, but would have a serious problem if orders being allocated to gamestop messed it up.

SONY is a HW manufacturer as well which positions them with a unique advantage over MSFT, they have better relations in that area at lower costs as a result of long time partnerships.

That's why they can deliver quality HW, higher specs at lower costs even when there might be a loss it's not as big as if it was MSFT delivering that HW... no power brick and still a slim console says everything about design and component used by SONY, X1 has probably no lock for the disc...by the way, has X1 still a disc tray besidesgigantic powerbrick?

slazer1013753d ago

^this. Now they are considering selling off some of there entertainment holdings to strengthen their electronic division. Just goes to show where they want to go in the future. which is great to hear. I hope the shareholders approve it.


nunley333752d ago

Slazer i read some big investors suggested spinning off their entertainment properties into a separate company and sell off things like the insurance and the medical device co. Pepsi spunoff their kfc,taco bell, pizza hut restaurants plus frito lay into yum brands and that has worked well for them.

thehitman3752d ago

@slazer and nun

I think they were only considering that because some bigshot investor was threatning some type of take over where Sony wasnt pleased about hearing. They want to divide their assets to protect them w/o losing too much control on them.
