OMG! I should believe this guy, who has NO SOUCE to provide it. Yeah, I should believe someone who calls Xbox owners "x-f*gs".

If you believe this stuff, I have some land to sell you.

"FGCNN staff skipped over purchasing an XBox One to instead purchase a low-end $400 Gateway computer, as performance was better"

hard to take this source seriously

I'm not a baby sitter. The link was in the article. Some folks just don't want to see it.

Yes. I watched the video. From start to finish. Did you? They guy talking (as annoying as he was), mentioned that most people were playing off-line. He was the only one who had problems. Also, when he did have a problem, his immediate comment was "What do I do, I don't have an Xbox and don't know where to go."

Who knows what he pushed? Worst case, this was a bug in the DRM removal, more than likely it was him not knowing what he was doing because he did not have an Xbox One, and therefore had no experience in how to use one. Once he resigned in as a guest, he could play the game, though.

I always have a laugh when I see people who have no idea about the XB1 post videos thinking "OMG! Look how bad it is". It really gives me an insight into the cognitive abilities of the TC.

I couldn't get past the ridiculous intro and this guy's annoying accent. The video is completely unwatchable.

Good thing there are links before the vid so you don't have to watch it. :)

Fuck. Now I have to read!?

Why bother? I already disproved the video. TC is just a cow being a cow...

Watch the moment it happened on the Twitch feed.

Unacceptable. It didn't happen in the middle of a round (it waited until the match was over), but that's really not the point. And if this indeed HAD been held at a venue where wifi or a hard wired connection was unavailable, this kind of thing could have put a very long pause in the middle of a match. I'm imagining someone having to disconnect the One, drive home where they have a TV and wifi to connect and test it on, verify their ownership, then come back to the venue.

Something people and organizations looking to hold tournaments based on XOne games/consoles will have to plan for (by having secure wifi on site), but it shouldn't be a problem in the first place...which was the point.

Hopefully this will be addressed better in future UI and OS updates.

Oh a side note, the guy hosting the twitch channel made me laugh. "Xbone pls..."

you didn't disprove shit. you are speculating what might have happened while instantly placing all of the blame on the announcer just because he doesn't personally own an Xbox One.

Is it a bug? IDK. What I do know is that if you watch the whole video, the guy talks about how almost everyone at the tournament is off line; yet he was the only one who had a problem.

So, the issue isn't exactly wide spread is it? That little tidbit of info changes things...

Almost everyone else was also offline, and he was the only one who had a problem. You are taking a single issue, that you don't even have all the information for, and acting like it is systemic.

Man that guy acts like a total moron.

He needs to lay off the drugs.

But as for the DRM BS... That's why I will never buy digital on consoles.

#20 Edited by Dreams-Visions (26569 posts) -

junked.

#21 Posted by Dreams-Visions (26569 posts) -

Update.

The truth has come out. They were playing on a secondary console thus the game needs to be online/verified. In other words, it wasn't being played on the One it was purchased for. There is no DRM check in if you play it on your primary console. The system is working as intended in this case.

THANK GOD I didn't buy that garbage console!

#27 Edited by ronaldmonster (1110 posts) -

Love my Xbox one but this isn't any different than the DRM scheme on Xbox 360 where if you aren't on the purchasing console there is a 24 hour check in period.

Either way.

He doesn't know what's a DRM. LOL. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_rights_management

DRM is applied on the current Xbox 360 and PS3. Hint: PS3 Jailbreak = jail.

The specific DRM type that contacts the internet is "Always On-DRM" . http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Always-on_DRM

DRM was drop for used games,it doesn't have to check,xbox one games work on all consoles like 360 games and PS4 games,that was part of the DRM and i am pretty sure MS drop it.

So happy with my PS4 =D

And this is why they should have released a retail version of Filler Shitstink.

With this and the busted netcode revelations, any chance this had of being a tourney game has been destroyed.

Why don't you do what you say? If you watch the WHOLE VIDEO, the guy mentions that there are a lot of people playing off line - yet he is the only one having a problem.

Who's been owned? YOU'VE BEEN OWNED.

LOL... nope.... TLHBO.

Guy in the video can't possibly know that others aren't having the problem, what does he have a list of XB1 owners and go home to home?

Actually given the nature of the problem... everyone will have it... its not a bug... it was put there ON PURPOSE BY M$!
