Microsoft's plan for its next-generation Xbox console due out 2028 leaked from FTC trial document.
Well I guess my hope is Sony isn't planning the Sam's thing? Because cloud anything isn't exactly my cup of tea tbh.
Microsoft is buying up IPs and eating a ton of costs to push people into it. I really hope people are resistant to an industry change in such a manner. I get it's an option people want, but Microsoft doesn't want to stop there. They want to get rid of hardware. They've said as much multiple times in the last two generations of hardware. I'd go full Steam/GOG before I went into the cloud. It's just not a good way to game, IMHO. Too many elements you can't control and the subscriptions already suffer the issue that video streaming sites suffer where you can't just rely on what you want being there when you want it.
I couldn't agree more. 100%!!
Also, once more games on there, price hikes will follow.
Yep. They're pushing towards the exact same idea they had for Xbox One launch lol Digital, online-only, subscription model. Remember "power of the cloud?" Cloud hybrid sounds eerily similar, doesn't it?
Agree once you own the worlds most loved IP it will be next and it seems more inevitable every year we will only be playing games from Microsoft data centres in the next 15 years if they get their say Microsoft is pushing so hard for ownership of Nintendo as it differs to a franchise game like tlou you can only make so many tlou entries before the popularity drops but you can make a hundred Mario games because each entry is unique. It's why Microsoft wants ownership of Doom, cod, crash, Spyro etc. Once they have what they want better believe they will charge through the nose for gamepass and I honestly see a future where games are exclusive to GP removing the ability to simply buy them Were falling into a long term industry trap and some people are far to excited about it
Google stadia waves hello'.… from the grave
The IBM Simon, a touch screen mobile released in 1992. Not saying whether it's smart or not, but every far fetched idea sounds stupid until someone makes it work. iPhone 2007.
U must mean like when Apple stole the idea for the mouse from zerox, stole their software, then Microsoft licenced said software from Apple to make word and excel (which actually debuted on Mac first). Then proceeded to steal all apples hard work and use their code to make windows, including, stealing said mouse idea.
Yes thats exactly the same as my point.
MS: How can we get to our Xbox One ideals with always online DRM no physical copies ? Cloud hybrid , that’s how.
Well if that's true they can keep it. Cloud gaming is not my future.
Sony says Mythbusters and more Discovery TV shows are going away whether you bought them or not.
they have no choice... Its the content holders decision and I'd assume this will affect other services as well.
Not the point they did this in the past and continue to take your money without the end user knowing its not a purchase but a rental. If this was a video game like the all mighty spiderman everyone would flip there shit https://ca.sports.yahoo.com... Marvel buys spiderman ip pulls every game from ps5 makes it multiplat "remaster" version every sony cult member would riot LOL
"Marvel buys spiderman ip pulls every game from ps5 makes it multiplat "remaster" version every sony cult member would riot LOL" Totally!
"without the end user knowing its not a purchase but a rental." How dumb do you have to be to not realize the servers for whatever random thing you buy digitally won't be around until the end of time? I know I ain't passing down my Vudu account to my grand kids.
People don't realise that digital content isn't permanent and you never own it ??? Weird because it's in the tos.
No, Phil Spencer would solve this issue by buying Warner.
*cough* physical media *cough* Granted, these days I buy most media digitally. But, this is why physical media should NEVER go away.
I hate how digital rights are handled, and hope physical media doesn't go away (at least in my life time). Fortunately I know better than to purchase TV shows and movies digitally.
Physical > Digital cough cough
we need a TV series preservation
This is why you torrent everything that is Movies, TV Shows, Music. Or you can go old school and pick a Usenet provider. In this way you own it they can't do shit once you have it. 😁 100% of the above I take, with games just some on PC. Because in the end you will lose everything you paid for, unless you just take what you want and be on your way LOL.
Digital is the future!
All digital future sux, that is all.
Now imagine you bought these physical. That way you can keep it forever!
At least Stadia refunded games when they closed the shop! I strongly hope that some class action suits or some regulator starts looking into this because this will start to become the norm for a lot of games.
You understand that PlayStation did not control this media? And that when you use a service like this you're connecting to that services servers. PlayStation does not own or host the files on their servers.
