It's the same no matter what. One disc one console. To use a disc on an additional system yields a fee. What that fee is we don't know right now, but I have a feeling it might be half the game price. That's the only way they can really make money. Otherwise if it was only say $5-$10, what's stopping someone from buying a game and giving it to 10 of their friends? They have a full retail game for chump change.

that seems to be the case. although if they can somehow control the price of used games by making you purchase a second license it could work. although what is to stop you from downloading your profile to friends device

I wonder what that "fee" is. Deal breaker right there.
And with that, I won't own a Xbox One

think about it guys everyone bitches about games costing more money... games are costing more because the studios only ever see the money from the initial purchase of the product. if the additional fee will somehow be split between microsoft and the developer it may actually drive down the cost of the game

They can stop you from downloading your profile to a friends device. For example, with sony, your profile can be used on 3 different consoles I think. I have 2 ps3s in my home, 1 previously died, when I went to a friends house to log in I had to call Sony.

Seriously doubt it. But take Sony for example, they've already confirmed that PS4 games will cost $59.99. So how that work for them. The reason why games are costing more is because they spend so much more money on things like graphics and marketing/advertising. They make a ton off of day 1 DLC and other DLC packages.

Sony had RUMORS, Microsoft doesn't. Case closed.

Those rumors meant nothing as I never believed them for either console, I wanted to see what they had to offer first.

And so far SONY hasn't shown us jack shit so they may still have it. In 20 minutes of this press conference we saw and heard more about the One than we did the 4

Actually, they confirmed it in the conference as well as follow up interviews.

And that's not entirely true, they both talked about features, specs, and showed off games. They only thing MS showed off was the look of the actual console in which Sony is waiting til E3.

Hmm must have missed it in the conference and I did no watch the follow ups.


I must say though in terms of money I am not surprised by this move at all.

In terms of backward compatability I would honestly be more shocked if it was included in next gen systems because again..money

What did MS show that Sony didn't besides the box?

One thing Sony did show however was actual gameplay with some of their titles and not just trailers.

Yo.

ok, serious mode on: this thing looks like M$ is trying to do wat Phillips, Magnavox & Sony tried to do a few years ago........does any1 here remember the CD-i??

looking at wat this thing is capable of, M$ is *really* trying to be "that one box your living room/family NEEDS", and Im both irked AND skeeved out by that thought.

I mean: who da fuck needs Skype if yur playing Call of Duty for 5hrs??


*shivers*

He killed me with the COD diss, "now you can jump over walls".

However it seems the curse of 3rd console continues.
