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

Quote:
Microsoft’s next console will require an Internet connection in order to function, ruling out a second-hand game market for the platform. A new iteration of Xbox Live will be an integral part of Microsoft’s next console, while improved Kinect hardware will also ship alongside the unit.

Sources with first-hand experience of Microsoft’s next generation console have told us that although the next Xbox will be absolutely committed to online functionality, games will still be made available to purchase in physical form. Next Xbox games will be manufactured on 50GB-capacity Blu-ray discs, Microsoft having conceded defeat to Sony following its ill-fated backing of the HD-DVD format. It is believed that games purchased on disc will ship with activation codes, and will have no value beyond the initial user.

Our source has also confirmed that the next Xbox’s recently rumoured specs are entirely accurate. That means an AMD eight-core x64 1.6GHz CPU, a D3D11.x 800MHz graphics solution and 8GB of DDR3 RAM. As of now, the console’s hard drive capacity is said to be undecided, but Microsoft’s extended commitment to online delivery suggests that it will be the largest unit it has put inside a console to date.

Though the architectures of the next-gen Xbox and PlayStation both resemble that of PCs, several development sources have told us that Sony’s solution is preferable when it comes to leveraging power. Studios working with the next-gen Xbox are currently being forced to work with only approved development libraries, while Sony is encouraging coders to get closer to the metal of its box. Furthermore, the operating system overhead of Microsoft’s next console is more oppressive than Sony’s equivalent, giving the PlayStation-badged unit another advantage.

Unlike Nintendo, Microsoft is continuing to invest heavily in motion-control interfaces, and a new, more reliably responsive Kinect will also ship alongside the next Xbox. Sony’s next-generation console camera system is said to have a similar set of features, and is expected to be discussed at the company’s PlayStation event on February 20.

Well that would be a suicidal thing to do.

How many different times do we need to discuss this rumour? We should probably wait until it's confirmed.

I really don't like the sound of this. I sure hope it isn't 100% true.

I didn't know this started years ago, and I haven't purchased any XBL games in a few years due to focusing on my PS3 so I'm completely unaware of them having activation codes.

Well that's bullshit, if true. I guess I'll be sticking with Sony for the next generation.

"The Xbox 720 will have to have an Internet connection for it to work, which doesn't bode well for used-gaming."

"For those who do end up buying physical copies of games, they will come with activation codes, and those codes will have no further value outside of the first user."

im failing to see how this is any different than what we are seeing right now with games. Alot more games now come with an XBL code to activate the game. Where was the outrage when this started years ago?

I'm not defending the decision, I just wonder why people wait for things to get out of hand to complain about things...

This.

Plus, we all knew used games were going one way or another due to everything eventually going digital anyway.
