[QUOTE="Gaming-Planet"]That makes you the most uninformed purchaser of all time. You don't own that ight, never did in terms of video games... You should take a gander at the EULA included with every physical copy of a game you "own". Hint before you read it: You own nothing. Digital or physical, when you buy a game you are buying a license to use that game. Purchasing a game for full price is just an extended rental from the company with no late fees. That hasn't changed in years. Buying it on disc offers no greater level of ownership, except to say you have a tangible copy of the game. 'Buying it on disc offers no greater level of ownership.' Yes, that might be the case, but at least this current gen I can still pass my games around whether by selling it on ebay or lending it to a friend WITHOUT having authenticate via a daily login. That's a big difference to the proposed model of XBOX One. Technically the EULA may by the same, but practically it's a complete overhaul and a change I don't agree with.
I should have the right to do what I want with the items I have purchased. I own that right and won't allow it to be taken from me.
I'd understand it if it was all digital, but hell no if I buy a physical game copy.i_noseworthy
I bought my 360 to get away from PC Activation codes and all that crap. Imagine the surprize I got when I purchased DiRT 3 and tiny little paper with the words "ONLINE PASS" greeted me, hell, they were mocking me. I didn't buy a console to make my hobby worse. Not to mention I've been trying to recruit my sister into gaming for a while now, paying to be spied on and having to check with MS every 24 hours is a major inconvinience, and ontop of that I still gotta deal with this Gold Membersh!p bullsh!t, it made sense in 2006-2009, but now. . . . . I'l keep gaming on my Xbox 360 until it dies, and then, I'm "JUMPING OUT" my Xbox Live account and all its content be damned, it aint worth keeping. Besides I'm not writing off the Xbox One, its by far the coolest thing ever ! Im writing off Microsoft, you know very well why.LulekaniI'm with you 100% on the PC DRM situation. I used to like PC games when they didn't require Steam/Blizzard.Net/UPlay and all this other crap. I don't agree with asking for permission to play a game that I bought. Vote with your wallet. If next gen goes the way of the PC, then consoles are pointless for me. And no I don't pirate games, I am perfectly able to pay full price. But impose these limitations on my gaming and you will lose my business.
[QUOTE="AutoPilotOn"]I don't see big deal. Steam needs to log in to online. Once I buy game I can't resale. It seems over blown to me feverberries
Steam doesn't need to be online, after you have downloaded the game. unless ofcourse you are playing an online game...Don't forget that a digital copy is usually much cheaper than the physical. If I'm going through the effort of visiting my local EB or JB and paying full price at release ($80 or $90 AUD), I should have the right to sell and lend out my game to whoever I want. This new 1 transfer policy is bullcrap. The game license effectively dies after 2 users. I will not participate in this gen, and I have avoided any PC game that required online authentication. The last DRM game I bought was Starcraft 2 and I vowed never to buy another game that forces me to ask for permission as to whether or not I'm allowed to play!!! I went to the shop and paid full price for the disk, not a discounted digital download. If XBOX One games were priced like discounted Steam games ($20-$40) I'd be ok with Microsoft's DRM. But I don't see that happening.
