So Microsoft finally revealed their next gen console this week, and what they hoped would be a grand reception instead turned into complete alienation of gamers.
Well, it keeps getting worse for X-Box One. Not only does the console block used games, but a price has been revealed (not official) however the price is absurd. $50 to activate a used copy so if you buy a used copy at $55 dollars that $105 dollars if this number does turn out to be true, but I believe $5-10 would be a more reasonable price probably will ultimately be around there. Considering that games are all ready over priced and since people have a limited income sometimes they can not afford a new game at launch and some games take a while to be given a price drop. This move reeks of greed and stupidity. Sadly this is just part of the problem.
Another issue is the online. The console will have to at least once a day log onto online. So if the servers go down or your router fries there is no way for the person to get online so they can not play the system. Ultimately down the road the servers will shut down for good so the owner is left with an expensive paper weight/door stopper.
The biggest problem is that X-Box One is an entertainment system instead of a game system. Microsoft is so focused on making it to be used for watching television and using Skype that games seem like an afterthought. I all ready have a DVD player and satellite so why should I throw cash to buy a system with such useless features. Why not have backwards compatibility instead. Oh, this is why...
"If you're backwards compatible, you're really backwards," Don Mattrick, Head of Microsoft's X-Box division.
So instead you would rather tack on useless garbage that will jack up the price. Nice, Microsoft.
There is so much more wrong with this system that I could go on like how indie games can not be self published on X-Box One. I have been a gamer for a long time, but never before have I ever seen an entire company throw their fans under the bus. X-Box One should be called X-Box Done. Hopefully this will be a huge failure, but I can say with certain there is no way I am buying this bloated piece of garbage.
Microsoft finally revealed their next gen console today, and there were a lot of rumors going around like must constantly being connected to internet and blocking used games. Well, the always on was proven to not be true however blocking used game is true.
See the game will be installed to the HDD so if a person buys an used copy that must pay a fee to play the game.
So that means if I buy a X-Box One some time down the road, and I want a launch title game that is no longer being distributed then I have to buy a used game and most likely will have an inflated price plus I must pay a fee to actually be able to play the game. What a dick move, Microsoft!
After having two 360s die on me, this is the nail in the coffin for me on X-Box One. The only way I would ever get a X-Box One is that Microsoft paid me to have one.
On a side note, I suggest checking out the article about it on the site since there are some epic and incredibly funny comments.
If only hospitals were like that in real life. Haha!
