Okay. Thanks for your input. I'm glad you didn't mention anything good about it so I wouldn't change my mind or anything.

If you have a PS3 you need to at least try it. It's the "Resident Evil 4" of this generation. The gameplay, story, and presentation are all top-notch.

I've been watching a playthrough of it on Youtube, and it looks like a pretty good game, but the combat is repetitive indeed, mostly because they're going for the "probably not the best idea for you to fight everything that moves" kind of path.

Probably not a game I'd enjoy, mostly because I suck at resource management. You walk and sneak through buildings quite a lot, but it's really intense because you don't know what's behind every door, and there are some enemies that will one shot you unless you have a certain perk.

For the most part, the characters are the main focus of the game, all about personalities during an apocalypse and shit.

User avatar #79 - awesomanium (05/29/2013) [-]
You read wrong.
"Xbox One game ownership is determined by an on-disc encryption code. Once a game has been sold, traded, or otherwise activated by another console, access to the previous owner's installed content is revoked and transferred to its new owner."
The system works by pinging your device and if the device doesn't respond then it disables some features. Therefore, if there's no system, there's no disabling. Even if it did disable when they were deactivated, Microsoft would, most likely, remove that pinging.
User avatar #86 - sagedivinity (05/29/2013) [-]
So what your saying is the original owner loses access to the game? So they have to keep the disk even though it installs and downloads to the console because as soon as someone else installs it the previous owner can't play it or parts of it. Do they have to pay a fee to unlock the blocked content?

Do you have a link to that?

You can't have two people playing one game and you never have been able to, so I don't see anything wrong with that. If you want that, you'd have to pay a fee, yes, as it is pretty much buying a new game. Honestly, I don't know how game borrowing will work, presumably somehow linking accounts or something, they've not really gone into that.
User avatar #115 - sagedivinity (05/29/2013) [-]
This article and video kind of supports and contradicts that:
www.webpronews.com/xbox-one-will-kind-of-block-used-games-2013-05
m.youtube.com/index?&desktop_uri=%2F

I honestly have no idea anymore. I've heard many contradictory statements from Microsoft, they seem to not have a collective understanding of what is being put into their console.

Personally, I'm just annoyed how even people who have done research don't know exactly what's happening, and yet people who've not so much as googled it can say with all certainty that the Xbox One is going to be terrible and steal your soul.

User avatar #43 - awesomanium (05/29/2013) [-]
Their used game policy doesn't exist, that's what's untrue.
You don't have to talk at it if you don't want to, it's required to be connected but not to be used.
"So, there is a lot of anxiety about “what if my Internet connection goes down” and you don’t have connectivity for a period of time. There are a host of features which will be usable without an Internet connection — watching movies, playing certain single player games… all of which will operate offline. "
The single player games that won't be played are those that have connected features. You can play games offline if you want, but I don't see why that's a huge problem considering your internet connection is pretty much always on.
User avatar #91 - thewaronbeingcool (05/29/2013) [-]
There is a used game policy. They don't directly charge a fee to the user, they demand a cut of the profit from the retailers. Which will bring up the prices of used games.

From that same interview you're quoting, he said that you need to connect at least once a day for the basic features. Not too big of a fuss if you have good internet, but you're reliant on Microsoft's servers.

Servers that will likely fail on launch like what happened with Diablo 3 and Simcity. Servers that can be brought down by hackers. Servers that need to go down for maintenance. Servers that'll eventually be shut off by Microsoft when it's not profitable to run them any more, making your console a worthless piece of shit because it requires a connection, and without one it refuses to function.
User avatar #93 - awesomanium (05/29/2013) [-]
This is still "potential scenarios".
But even so, you CAN play single-player online, they said so themselves.
User avatar #102 - thewaronbeingcool (05/29/2013) [-]
I assume you meant offline. If not then disregard this.

And they did say offline, as in you only need to connect once a day and then you can go offline until your next mandatory check-in the next day.

They might just be 'possible scenarios' (They're back-pedalling so fast they're going to fall over), but it's worrying they're even considering this bullshit in the first place.
User avatar #107 - awesomanium (05/29/2013) [-]
I mean offline, and I mean offline as in offline for 24+ hours.
But it doesn't seem like that bad of a possible scenario. Half of the terrible bullshit (e.g: paying to play a used game after buying it) it just stuff that's been lost in translation by the media.

Used game DRM's not true, I don't see what's wrong with mandatory kinect, and you need an internet connection to stay connected to the Xbox Live cloud, and you can be excluded from that.
User avatar #42 - mrnolanbarker (05/29/2013) [-]

I don't want to talk or wave at my TV. Kinect is a gimmick and shouldn't be required.

I should be able to play single player games without "the cloud."

well then IGN dun goof'd. cuz they had this price on their site for that console for a whole freaking month.
User avatar #503 - Crusader (03/13/2013) [-]
Then be specific.
IGN has announced a price, from what they can tell from hardware and design prices and comparing it to computers that have the same ability, but again that is IGN announcing what they think it would cost if they were releasing at a profit.
No one releases consoles at a profit, they release it at a loss and then they license games and make their money that way. Or like with Xbox live, you pay for Microsoft points (something they are eliminating in the next gen) and then pay devs per how many games and/or dlcs they sold over the marketplace.
