News Comments > MS Backtracks on Xbox One DRM & Region Locks

18. Re: MS Backtracks on Xbox One DRM & Region Locks Jun 19, 2013, 17:31 Yosemite Sam
 
Heh, so they saw the writing on the wall and capitulated... well after kicking and screaming that the consumer didn't know what they were talking about and after failing to convince people so. Guess someone at Microsoft finally clued them into the fact that unlike Windows they don't have a monopoly in the console market so can't FORCE whatever they like onto consumers.

I am fairly sure that not auto-logging in will *not* stop the PS3 from looking for a system update. If your console is online, it looks every-time at startup. I know this because I do not auto login.

I'm POSITIVE that it does not check for updates unless you log onto the PSN.

the biggest irritation with ps4 updates is that if you refuse the update, you can play your PS Store-bought games, but not save your progress. Which is b.s.

The only solution is to disable the internet before your turn on the ps4 so it doesnt see the update.

... or you could simply, you know, not log onto the PSN. Im setup so I dont automatically logon when I enter my profile... and WTF are you talking about, I play my PS bought games offline all the time and have no issues saving my progress.

"Microsoft Hopes Publishers Will Provide More Value To Consumers If Xbox One Games Canít Be Resold"

More like Microsoft hopes you'll believe this BS.

COD:BO did 1.5 billion. I never got the game so please tell me how much extra value you all got seeing as Activision made a shit load of money? I'm going to go out on a limb and say people who bought the game got zero extra value and the only people who got extra value were the execs at Activision and their shareholders... oh sorry I forgot you got to see Robert Downey Jr in Black OPs 2 commercials, rejoice in your extra value.

I suppose the gamers themselves did get a little 'extra something' in BO2...

One has to wonder, is Microsofts new policy really about stopping used game sales... or is it really a way to force obsolescence into the system... so when they decide the XB1 has had it's time then they can turn it off and force the consumer to upgrade. Is Gamestop their enemy or is it the tens of millions of gamers who are quite happy to keep on playing with their PS2s and Xboxs.

"You cannot have game and marketing budgets this high while also having used and rental games existing," he said via Twitter. "The numbers do NOT work people."

CliffyB's latest troll rant against used games is up and he predictably backs Microsoft, claiming that modern game development and marketing is too expensive to support a used game market. Of course one might wonder why the marketing and game budgets need to be this high in the first place when people will spend millions on something like Terraria and Minecraft, surely there is a middle ground to be found there.

Destructoid absolutely decimates his argument, thought people might want to take a gander.

Are these extra high res assets not already being done for the PC, a platform that does not have a used game market or move anything near the numbers consoles do?... and is it not actually EXTRA work to lower those assets so the games can run on a console?... and does not the new higher powered console actually make for less work in optimization therefor making the game cheaper to produce?

Seems to me Cliffys just being a corporate shill, and we know their position, no amount of profit is enough, so if they think axing the used game market will increase their personal market share then that's what they'll do and it has nothing to do with making ends meet. Did Gears of War not make money, a ton of money, so what the FK is this guy bitching about. Greedy asshole.

Titanfall: How no one cares but will still make a billion dollars

As an Xbox exclusive? not a chance.
I guess Halo, Gears of War don't count despite achieving all that?

Halo3 the biggest mover of them all made about 500mill... so no they didn't achieve that. There are in fact only 6 games in history to break the billion dollar mark and the only ones that did it as exclusives are Wii games. Frankly Titanfall has a snowballs chance in hell even if it was being released on all platforms.

In slightly different news, I finally caved and pre-ordered the Last of Us, because it looks effing brilliant.

Creston

This one had totally fallen off of my scope and then I kept hearing buzz about it watching E3 stuff yesterday and Metacritic has it at an amazing 96... and that's not a cheap 96 with only half a dozen reviews. So now I've got a potential wicked game on my radar that's coming out this week! ... Now I'm really in a dilemma as these days I buy games after a few months when the price drops.

Looking forward to see what Naughty Dogs gonna do with the PS4. That's one thing when people compare Xbox1 and PS4 exclusives, they forget some of Sony's biggest hitters haven't entered fray yet... though personally I hate the "exclusive BS" from both sides. I don't care that Xbox can play Metal Gear games now, have fun there great games, but it sure pisses me off that Dead Rising 3 won't come out on the PS4.

Slightly more telling poll:

UK tabloid poll

If you just want the results it's 79% PS4 to 21% xbox one - with 20725 votes cast as I write this.

Interesting to note afaik the UK is the only place 360 has beaten PS3.

You have that incorrect. US is the only region that 360 has outsold PS3. UK and Japan sales are greater for the PS3 than the 360.

PS3 has barely passed the 360 for Global sales totals. They are basically neck and neck at this point. And, 360 has been out a year longer.

Ya but how many of those 360s are second, third and fourth purchases to replace bricked consoles.

Well the Xbox does have one advantage over the PS4 that no one seems to notice... Downloaded games can be shared on the Xbox, within their limitations, something you can't do on the PS4.

Wow on the metacritic scores for 'The Last of Us'. Watching the E3 stuff yesterday there was a ton of hype on it... I seem to recall hearing a 20 hour game length, and it hits the shelves on friday, woot!

Some really interesting looking games shown yesterday. Destiny looked friken awsome, online co-op bliss. Dead Rising 3, MGS5, The Order and The Division. Mad Max and Battlefront showed pretty much nothing but something to keep an eye on... and of course stuff we already knew was in the pipe, Watch Dogs, Killzone, Second Son... Ryse had my interest peaked until the hand to hand combat started, lame.

BOOM! Sony just dropped the hammer. NO connection required, NO restrictions on used games.

... and probably just killed any purchase from me by going pay to play online

Sucks that DR3 is now going to be an Xbox exclusive, looked pretty sweet..

I guess I was hoping for another mall/strip experience. I realize that would pretty much be a redo of the last one, but it was fun...

3 reminds me too much of resident evil...


I didn't play the first two... the gritty, real, open world is what I like. I could see spending all my time simply playing it as a kind of survival mode... course if it only comes out on Xbox I won't play it ever.

A good consensus is flying a M7 or something like that. It is bigger than a fighter but smaller than a M2 or M1.

I fly in a M6 most of the time, because it is stronger than any fighter, but small enough to dock with any station. When I have to go into combat, I'll jump into my trusty M7 (which is fairly fun to fly into combat), giving orders to my fleet, and enjoying the combat. And if things get too hot, I can always call in my M7M and let it clear the whole sector with a few missile barrages (which is AWESOME).

Needless to say, I love the X series as a whole, and I look forward to X-Rebirth. Here's a fairly recent (and quite impressive) video showing how the game looks:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6seoryOhxk


I really liked using CAP ships and once I had them rarely went back to fighters, with the cockpit MOD of course. I probably logged the most time in my M6 Vidar I got in the terran plot. Fast, maneuverable and massive forward firepower. Course once I started cleaning out Xenon sectors I had to use an M7 at minimum and once the cash flow was rolling in I used my M2.
