Are they really? I bet everyone (or most everyone) in this thread complaining already has their Xbox connected to the internet...so again, I'll ask, what's the big deal?

I was recently without internet for a week because of bad weather/shitty internet provider, so instead of having the gaming console to keep myself entertained I would had to have found something else.. and solitaire gets boring after about ten minutes.

I take it you're the type of person who just accepts anything the developers or console makes give you.

The point is, things happen. Internet goes down and not everyone in North America has steady internet or even has internet. Microsoft is alienating that consumer base. Regardless, we are the consumer, it is their job to appease us, not the other way around. Why would anyone buy a console which will be an inconvenience any time the internet goes down for maintenance, high traffic, or inclement weather.

Plus, we have seen this before and the last instance of something like this, there was lag in a single player game.

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

This is a deal breaker for me. If Sony do not go the same route I'll get a PS4. Who can afford to buy full price xbox 720/PS4 games if they cannot sell them on. Once you use the code it's pretty much worthless. Buying a game is a big fucking decision now. No more game rentals. Won't be able to lend games to friends. Can't play the game you bought if your internet is down. Wtf? :shock

If Sony go the same way I'll finally switch to PC gaming. I've recently installed Steam. Games are so much cheaper. I just need a better PC to run the newer games. PC has lots of mods too.

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

I'm really not a fan of Steam, they have a lot of the same issues. Like I can't play certain games if I don't have Steam? Fuck that. Though the store has some amazing sales.

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

Its times like these I feel happy because my brother had us buy the PS3 and get some friends to play with us on the Sony side,Microsoft just keeps spitting at my face.

All hail to Ulfric you are the High King
In your great honor we drink and we sing
We're the children of Skyrim and we fight all our lives
And when Sovngarde beckons everyone of us dies

We drink to our youth to the days come and gone
For the age of oppression is now nearly done

I think they're in more trouble if they call it the Xbox 720. Such a ridiculous and terrible name for a console.
