Internet required?

Bullshit. Doesn't matter for me, anyways. Playstation will be the better system, coming from someone with a 360 and no PS3

I'm not defending the decision, I just wonder why people wait for things to get out of hand to complain about things...
Like Seph said, it's online if you want to play online and I haven't seen a game published by anyone other than EA (figures) that has done it though I'm sure there's at least one. You can always purchase the code for $10 if you buy used and if you get a big enough discount it'll still work out to be cheaper than buying new.

Smart for the company, but bad for the consumers. I don't see a big need for a new generation of consoles. You could still ride this gen a few more years. All I'm really seeing is a more powerful product with douchey, money hungry features.

I will say though, if Microsoft follows though with this, Sony would be smart to NOT do it. It could mean the difference in a sale. Microsoft may be underestimating the draw of used games. Most gamers range between ages of 14-24 and I don't know many high school/college students who can continually dish out $60 for games. You could also make the argument that if a person may be more willing to buy a new copy of the next installment of a game series if they can get their hands on a cheap copy of a previous installment. Like, buying GOW3 for $10 allowing you to become a fan of the game and anticipating Judgement and buying on release day or whatever.

I'll commit to Sony again if Microsoft follows through and Sony doesn't follow suit.

Edit: I also want backwards compatibility not only for 360/PS3 games, but also PS2/PS1/original Xbox games.

Re: New Xbox - No more used games, require Internet to play

Don't think the internet thing will affect me, though I do think it's pointless.

The used game thing is just another annoying way for them to grab money. I already lost out when I tried to sell on NFS: Hot Pursuit (Had completed it and replay value is poor) and I had to cut the price because I had used the code already.

Re: New Xbox - No more used games, require Internet to play

Someone as big as Microsoft making a an internet only console is just fucking stupid, for one thing there are still millions of people who don't have access to proper broadband, with the only option being satellite or mifi, and in most cases just satellite which has horrible pinging, though it has improved to the point that online gaming is at least finally an option. Making the Xbox 3 internet only will just fuck Microsoft in the long run.

Re: New Xbox - No more used games, require Internet to play

I play online so.that wont hurt me but no used games sounds awful. Alot of times there are games I want but just dont feel worth 60 so I wait. I only buy new games if I really really want it day of. I'll game with my current consoles for a few nore years tbough by then it'll be easy to decide on PS4 or 720.

Re: New Xbox - No more used games, require Internet to play

Thats sounds horrible. I hope that this isn't all true. I probably won't be getting this if it true, I wanna see what Playstation has to offer for their new console first.

the market is obviously moving towards having all games playable online (which I really don't like), so at some point this was the next logical step for them to take. I do get what you're saying though, and perhaps I misunderstood the article.

But to be totally honest, the used game market gives nothing (afaik) to microsoft in the way of sales, so I can see why they would want to put an end to it.

Its not just online though. You couldn't play the catwman missions in Arkham City with a pre owned copy of the game.
