I heard about this. From my understanding, is the games will be continued to be made for both generations of consoles, for some reason.



However, I will still be attempting to dissuade as many customers in teh electronics department at my walmart from buying it as possible. Many of them around here don't have stable internet as is.

Just advise them on getting the PS4, a Wii U, or a better PC.

I live in one of the many 'hicktown USE" kinda places. Half the people that come in don't even know how to navigate a keyboard, let alone work on upgrading a PC or even researching how to. They mostly just buy shit for their whiny, spoiled children. Which is what scares me the most. The number of stupid parents that just buy shit to shut their kids up could keep the xb1 afloat.

Thank you for your service lol let's all make microsoft go down in flames for this big pile of bullshit they dumped at our doors. Pic related, it's micro$oft outside your window.

actually wanting to see sony's main competitor go down is fucking retarded. no competition = stagnation.

You dont really need stable internet, if you only had like 1 solid minute thats all it needs. Its only once every 24 hrs

And if just then your internet, or their servers, have issues you cannot play at all untill the issue is resolved.

Consoles with online check-in will work less often then consoles without it and thats a fact.

Yeah no. The point of 300,000 servers is to minimize errors. And if you don't have the capacity to ping microsoft once every 24 hours, buddy, I don't think games should be your first priority.

It's not the same point every 24 hours, if you lose connection to the internet, you can play for a further 24 hours before you can't play any more. This isn't a difficult concept

It doesn't matter. The only thing that matters is that Microsoft erroneously believes it has the right to regulate how/when/where you can use the products you have legally purchased. And none of this 'leasing the system' bullshit--if you buy a goddamn video game console, that motherfucking console belongs to you. Y'know what that means? It means you can legally do anything you damn well want with it, so long as it infringes on no-one else's personal rights. You can set the thing on FIRE and there is not a goddamn thing anyone in the world can legally do to stop you (provided you aren't lighting it up in a forest or a public park or some shit--I'm assuming you're using common sense).

It's not the point that you're leasing the system. You're leasing the games. You can use the system however much you please, although setting it on fire seems a bit extreme, but the games are licensed to you. And Microsoft are well within their rights to dictate how you use their intellectual property.

I don't even understand how they're getting away with this nonsense. Leasing the games? It's a video game, not a car! The gaming industry has enough problems with entitled fuckoff developers/publishers thinking they deserve more than what they receive from the first sale as it is (i.e. Steam), and now M$ is trying to tell me that I don't own the product I've purchased? Bullshit, that game is mine just like every other game I've ever bought, and again I can do with it whatever I please. The simple fact of the matter is that M$' consumers are going to come down on this like a fucking hammer, and hopefully that will send a message to every publisher and dev in the industry that you can't pull this kind of shit and expect to make a profit. It is my sincere hope that the Xbone flops magnificently and takes out the gaming division of M$ in a storm of shame and failure.

Because in the end? If we let them get away with this bullshit, what's to stop them from grabbing for even more things they have no right to? Before Steam and the like started popping up, the idea that you didn't own a game you'd bought would have been ludicrous. Suddenly now it's okay that these assholes are taking away the fundamental right to ownership of that which is yours by purchase? I say it isn't, and I really hope people show M$ that they can't just force feed us their shit and expect us to swallow like good little slaves.

That (i.e. Steam) isn't supposed to be there--Steam is the cause of a number of the industry's problems, but it has nothing to do with that particular bugbear.

Hey bro. I've known people who have worked at walmart and they tell me it's such a shit job, so you have my sympathies. But I just wanted to say that you are doing a good thing by dissuading customers from buying the xbone. More power to you.
