That alleged Xbox engineer is so full of tripe. Steam offers many more benefits to the consumer, while Xbox One simply doesn't.

To be fair, it sounds like the Xbox One will actually allow you to sell/transfer your purchased games to someone else. Steam doesn't. Once you purchase a game for yourself on Steam, it's forever attached to that account.

So, that's something.

However, all that stuff about these restrictions allowing for cheaper games on the Xbox One is complete nonsense. It's not even a guarantee. Even the words this alleged engineer used reveals that, even with these restrictions, all Microsoft can do is suggest to the publisher that they sell their game at a lower price. As I said, it's not going to happen.
Microsoft already said multiple times that the transfer policy is as follow. 10 day "share" period for people on your friends list that have been on longer than 30 days.

That alleged Xbox engineer is so full of tripe. Steam offers many more benefits to the consumer, while Xbox One simply doesn't. Microsoft wants total control. You don't even own games anymore with Xbox, you lease them. Also, used games screwing you over is NOT MY FUCKING PROBLEM.

In the end, Microsoft can try to justify this horse shit in everyway they can, but in the end, when the PS4 is outselling the Xbox 1 2:1 or 3:1, they will change their tune, and try and spin another story about how always online was just an experiment, or how they listen to consumer feedback.

Answer me this mother fucking engineer. Why were all the Xbox 1 games shown on PCs with Windows 7.

Whoever pays/defends this, is not my friend. Sorry, I just don't want to be your friend anymore.
Wait, not wanting to be someone's friends implies you have to have friends in the 1st place.

Gamespot is deathly afraid of Xbox One that if you preorder the PS4, all your trades-in credit increases 30% if you put that money down on the PS4. This is not a joke either, I called Gamestop yesterday looking for an Xbox 360 controller and that's the first thing they mentioned when they pick up the phone.

I have 3 consoles, and when there are on, they are "always on". My current 360 is always on. My tv is wifi, and when its on, the wifi is on. Always. So what? My laptop is online RIGHT NOW ! GASP !! All this drm stuff is the pirates fault. I hate and despise these people. and i dont pirate, so if a game publisher wants to check my code, im cool with it. See, if i buy a new car, ford doesnt tell me what i can do with it, who i can lend it to, or sell it to. But, i cant take my ford home, make 1000 copies and give them to my friends either, if i did that, and other people did that, i bet you ford would be pretty pissed off. If i can share my games with family members (grandkids) on their consoles, at their house, then we are gonna fucking love this system. IF thats how it works, microsoft is being unclear. But there could be some awesome benefits to this idea and its possible microsoft is ahead of the game. Can we co op with one game? I dunno, they are being really stupid and not stressing the benefits to the consumer.
Is this guy serious? Do you work for Microsoft or something? There are NO benefits and no you can't share you games.

I like how all the people bitching about not being able to share games on Xbox One have Steam installed, Deruka DERR!
PCs aren't consoles. Also Steam games are digital, not physical media. Deruka DERR

How about Witcher 2?

Anyone got a recommendation?
It's great but a steep difficult curve. I definitely recommend working on alchemy if you plan to play on harder difficulties.

The press doesn't want to cover it because it's killing Obama's approval. He's currently lower than George W Bush!

Also, look how fast they dropped the IRS scandal. Typical liberal media.
Lol I love when kids throw the word liberal media around, just parroting off crap they hear from other people, like it's some sort of insult. It's funny because most of the media is owned by conservative corporations.

Either way, you're definitely not in the wrong for liking FEZ, and you're not exactly in the wrong for hating Fish, so it's a tossup for the individual.
Wow, you're the judge and jury of others opinions? Get out of here with that high horse attitude. People are entitled to like whatever they damn well please

PS4’s used game policy isn’t “because some other company is doing something”.
That's such a lie. There is no doubt Sony had some crazy DRM schemes in mind before Microsoft dropped the ball. Why do you think they were so tight lipped about PS4 before E3? Don't act like Sony is some pure, angelic company that cares about the customer first and foremost.

Remember, this is the same company who invented Securom, was caught red handed in the BGM scandel(installing rootkits) and has been a big supporter and abuser of copyright protection in the past.

It's good to know Microsoft soon will be dropping out of the console race, as Xbox One is going to tank.

I'm going to gladly support it, and preorder it as soon as it's available. Fez was awesome and can't wait for more. I support good games first and foremost. Fish's antics off screen concern me not in the slightest(whatever they are)

Way to be pathetic, ESA. It's a hundred dollar console that plays phone game (and does so not very well), and you're being this pedantic dick in trying to stop people from noticing them.

I hereby move we nominate the ESA instead of EA in next year's "Biggest fucking dicks in America" competition.

Kinda of normal shite - 3 years ago my wife was coining it in as a webcam model. Her and 3 other UK models set up a lottery competition to win a day with them at an adult convention here in the UK. Unfortunately the other 3 girls turned up in branded wabcam site t-shirts and got escorted off the premises even though they had bought tickets! Luckely my wife wasn't in the branding and we got to be bored by the lamest exhibition I've ever seen.

The ejected girls were no threat and bought some much needed eye candy to a bunch of sad sleezy stalls but hey - they hadn't paid to advertise apparently.

But yeah long story short - event organisers are VERY protective of their event space.
You're wife is an aspiring pornstar?

All you guys do is bitch , and complain about what games, or systems your not gonna buy. and most of your bitching comes from absolute ignorance. Motion gaming and those casual gamers you hate are what keeps the entire games industry alive. Not the so called hardcore gamers. The wii sold 99 million units, and wii sports is the best selling game in history. Anyone with kids or grandkids will tell you what the most popular game in the house is. Its dance central. The kids move the furniture and play ALL DAY with all the sports games etc. The wii u is easily the most popular console in my house, its on constantly. Far more than my ps3 or my 360. Wii sports resort sold more than halo 3 and black ops COMBINED. Gow 1 and 2 sold 10 million together while the wii fit sold 22 million. More than double. Casual gamers and motion gaming have flooded the games market, and developers, with billions of dollars. While you stupid asses sit around and bitch about how motion gaming has added nothing, and complain about the next thing your not gonna buy. stfu already.
Sad but true.
