I'm certainly picking up a PS4 instead of this joke.
Businesses are always money hungry pricks. Don't know why this still needs to be said in 2013. It's not like your Sony's best friend or something.

So much conflicting info now. They have said that games are tied to individual accounts and rely on the Hard drive and if you go to a new console you have to sign in yet now they are backtracking massively.

Sony might not be my friend but he isn't making me pay $400+ for an ass fucking without even the decency for a hug at some point

That advert is fake ^.

At least with Sony it seems like they care about you as a consumer. Microsoft seems to be chasing the casual family market and not its gamer fanbase and that is irritating as I predominantly used 360 this gen.

The Xbox One will not require gamers to pay a fee to reactivate a used game, but it will require a regular online spot check to verify the authenticity of games being played, according to sources familiar with the system.

While an internet connection will be required for the console, the company is also experimenting with special exemption codes that could be given to select people in very particular, internet-free situations, like active-duty soldiers serving in war zones, sources tell Polygon.

"Microsoft "will disclose more information in the near future""

The ultimate system that Xbox One will use for used games and online authentication sounds like it is still in open debate on some level internally, which may explain the company's reticence in more directly clarifying the matter this week. Microsoft executives have been discussing the reaction to the confused messaging surrounding used games and internet requirements and plan to detail the console's take on both sometime before E3, according to our sources.

During this week's Xbox One unveiling, Microsoft officials gave conflicting answers to questions about used games and online requirements. According to an official Q&A from Microsoft, the Xbox One does not "have to be always connected, but does require a connection to the Internet." Speaking with Kotaku, Microsoft's Phil Harrison said that the console would require an internet check every 24 hours.

Microsoft officials later said that was one potential scenario.

According to Polygon's sources, Microsoft officials haven't yet settled on the specific amount of time that can pass between checks, but that some form of regular check will be required to play games.

The Xbox One will automatically authenticate a game using an encryption code built into a game's disc, when it is installed on the machine. That authentication on the console's hard drive tied to the game is then verified regularly through an internet connection.

When a person sells the game or it is installed and played on another system, the game is deauthenticated on the original machine until the disc is brought back and used to re-authenticate the installation.

Our sources also said that there are no plans to charge gamers a fee to sell or reactivate a used game. Earlier today, Microsoft's Larry Hryb touched on the topic of used games on his blog, but didn't say whether fees will be required.

"The ability to trade in and resell games is important to gamers and to Xbox," according to the official statement he included in his post. "Xbox One is designed to support the trade in and resale of games. Reports about our policies for trade in and resale are inaccurate and incomplete. We will disclose more information in the near future."

We reached out to Microsoft for comment and representatives pointed us to Hryb's statement.

I think now the conflicting info is only gonna harm them more. Now it looks like It is online checks but you can buy a license to stop these.

Don't know what to believe anymore. At least Sony isn't giving us the run around

Corporations don't care about the consumer, they care about money. If the product they're selling appeal to a certain consumer base then they'll do what they can to make them happy. If Microsoft is pandering to the "casual market", then that could prove to be a winning strategy, especially if you look at how successful the Wii was last generation. They didn't pledge allegiance to the hardcore gamers, and even then, there's no telling until E3 that they've done a complete 180 on their Xbox 360 strategy. Give it time, that last conference was about showcasing specs, not games.


I think it sucks that the new console isnt peripheral friendly, and that you can't use your 360 headsets on the new console for example. I understand why they're going the non-backwards compatible/clean slate route, but it sucks having to buy a whole gamut of new accessories.

Well, Sony is LESS of a money whore.

That's why their online services are free and they won't be blocking used games. If one company grows to be a complete dick, i have to go to the next best thing, which is Sony. I'm not defending Sony's ways by any means, I'm just saying Microsoft is even worse now.

You do realise all either of them care about is money? Their online services are free because it makes their console more appealing therefore they get more sales. MS has just chosen a different strategy to make money.

Plus now it looks like MS aren't blocking used games, of course we have seen conflicting evidence on this subject so we're going to need a bit more time to actually figure out what is going on.
