Xbox One Myths Debunked

Unless they've debunked the 24hr curfew/parole check-in (whatever you want to call it), then I can't even be bothered to read it. I know as much as I need to about this infiltration technology.

Then you have the patience of a saint, because you'll be waiting an eternity.

What annoys me are people who say "If you don't like the console & aren't planning on ever buying it, stop bitching about it." Sorry but it's not as simple as that. If Xbone & its anti-consumer stance succeeds, then you can bet it will influence others in the industry, who will follow suit. So I can't just ignore it & neither should anyone else who values their consumer rights & still believes the customer is the most important part in the equation.

Make no mistake, if Sony were the ones with MS's policies, I'd be buying an XOne instead. If both had 24hr authentication (which is a mild term) & restrictions on what can do with my own property, then I'd have to stick with my 360, PS3 & Vita. Further down the line, I'd look into how cheap a comparable PC gaming setup was & finally take the plunge.

I'd love a study to be done on fanboys, especially in the gaming sector. Because this particular brand of 'fanatic', is a different breed to say, football fans. In fact, I'm surprised Microsoft, EA, Activision et al haven't funded such a thing, to learn how to better exploit them & hopefully create more.

That whole cloud computing thing is bullsh*t and been 'debunked' also.

Very wise words. That's why Sony doesn't mention it, because they know it won't even properly work anyways, and cloud-gaming is something that works server side anyways, the PS4 could use it as well as the Xbox One, so Microsoft saying the Xbox One is ahead of the PS4 because of cloud-gaming is just a false advertisement.

Also to the "Xbox One Myths": Yeah they state that you can turn off the kinect, but does it really turn off? Brings me to a serious point again: WHY CAN'T YOU REMOVE KINECT? Sorry for caps, but it's just ridiculous that they say you can turn it off, yet if you remove it the console stops working. Now get those brain cells working, hmmm, why won't they let you remove it? sarcasm.gif sarcasm.gif

Microsoft dropping basically all Xbox One DRM, announcement today

QUOTE
Microsoft is set to announce it will remove DRM restrictions on Xbox One games and the need for you to have the new Xbox "always online".

Sources tell us that Microsoft is set to announce the changes later today, with games developers being informed first.

It seems Microsoft has listened and is set to change its mind on both DRM on Xbox One games and the always online requirement.



QUOTE
No more always online requirement
The console no longer has to check in every 24 hours

All game discs will work on Xbox One as they do on Xbox 360
Authentication is no longer necessary
An Internet connection is only required when initially setting up the console
All downloaded games will function the same when online or offline
No additional restrictions on trading games or loaning discs
Region locks have been dropped

Somehow I wanted them to die too. Not because I'd think myself a Sony fanboy, but I was so pissed with Microsoft attitude toward the community, that I initially was happy when I found out nobody wants to buy this damn console.

It's a good news, I reckon. Sony will have to try even harder now, to be better than Microsoft.

Highly doubt it.

This will absolutely ruin all of their digital "game sharing" things.

At best, they will not require to have internet checks if you have the disk in.

And 50% less powerful than the PS4. You can't have cloud processing if all games can work 100% offline.

God damn. I figure MS was going to go the Apple route and say "f*ck you, we tell you what you want". But damn, congrats internet!

But like GTAvanja said, it is still not as powerful as the PS4.

It's not just that. They are getting rid of the features that were supposed to give them the edge over their competitors. According to them. They got rid of all the things that they advertized. Now all they have is a less powerful and $100 more expensive console. Maybe a smarter move would be to put a positive spin on Xbone features instead of getting rid of them. And people without any internet access are still f*cked. Now they can't justify the price in any way.

Good if its true,but damage is done and customer confidence is lost. Also what stops them to return those restrictions without warning?

I think they also have some good exclusives like Dead Rising 3 and Rise. And I'd rather have an Xbox than a PS. If they didn't fix this, I would be getting a PS4.

That would depend on exclusive titles. They announced that they plan to invest $1 billion in exclusives. This news along with some attractive exclusives might be enough to persuade a lot of people to buy it.

Don Mattrick: Last week at E3, the excitement, creativity and future of our industry was on display for a global audience.

For us, the future comes in the form of Xbox One, a system designed to be the best place to play games this year and for many years to come. As is our heritage with Xbox, we designed a system that could take full advantage of advances in technology in order to deliver a breakthrough in game play and entertainment. We imagined a new set of benefits such as easier roaming, family sharing, and new ways to try and buy games. We believe in the benefits of a connected, digital future.

Since unveiling our plans for Xbox One, my team and I have heard directly from many of you, read your comments and listened to your feedback. I would like to take the opportunity today to thank you for your assistance in helping us to reshape the future of Xbox One.

You told us how much you loved the flexibility you have today with games delivered on disc. The ability to lend, share, and resell these games at your discretion is of incredible importance to you. Also important to you is the freedom to play offline, for any length of time, anywhere in the world.

So, today I am announcing the following changes to Xbox One and how you can play, share, lend, and resell your games exactly as you do today on Xbox 360. Here is what that means:

An internet connection will not be required to play offline Xbox One games – After a one-time system set-up with a new Xbox One, you can play any disc based game without ever connecting online again. There is no 24 hour connection requirement and you can take your Xbox One anywhere you want and play your games, just like on Xbox 360.

Trade-in, lend, resell, gift, and rent disc based games just like you do today – There will be no limitations to using and sharing games, it will work just as it does today on Xbox 360.

In addition to buying a disc from a retailer, you can also download games from Xbox Live on day of release. If you choose to download your games, you will be able to play them offline just like you do today. Xbox One games will be playable on any Xbox One console -- there will be no regional restrictions.

These changes will impact some of the scenarios we previously announced for Xbox One. The sharing of games will work as it does today, you will simply share the disc. Downloaded titles cannot be shared or resold. Also, similar to today, playing disc based games will require that the disc be in the tray.

We appreciate your passion, support and willingness to challenge the assumptions of digital licensing and connectivity. While we believe that the majority of people will play games online and access the cloud for both games and entertainment, we will give consumers the choice of both physical and digital content. We have listened and we have heard loud and clear from your feedback that you want the best of both worlds.

Thank you again for your candid feedback. Our team remains committed to listening, taking feedback and delivering a great product for you later this year.
