[QUOTE="blackace"][QUOTE="Mandingo101"]That ain't going to happen. If the Kinect is off, how would they know? lol!! It's a completely STUPID policy that M$ just needs to delete before they make their customers more angry. Looks like the system won't run without Kinect, kinda like how you can't play without a controller. The Kinect is another controller. This setup presents many problems in my eyes; if you drop the kinect, a kid throws it, or it just craps out, you can't play without buying another one? Doesn't look like you'll just be able to buy a cheap replacement like you can a controller (My bro bought an extra ps3 controller at a discount clothing store, it had a cord and no rumble but was like $10 LOL).Your cable box works without the xbox though. Turn the whole damn thing off....now what!!!?
This rumor from last year looks more real than ever, considering recent events. Kinect is required, movies and tv are main focus, fees are the name of the game, movie achievements.Mandingo101

This makes sense and gives me hope that there will only be a one time registry without a fee for every console a game is put in to. That makes perfect sense for a console that allows playing without a disc. It will show the still have a freakin clue if they use this policy and I'll get one.
What annoy's me the most is they are still (after all the negative PRfrom before) trying to figure out how to milk another fee somewhere. This is what the conflicting reports are. They are done on purpose for feeling things out. I keep wanting them to get a freakin clue because I've been enjoying Xbox for 12 years. With very few negative experiences personally. But they are just getting way to douchbagish for me to tolerate.
All they need to do is make you register the game on a new console because of the new install feature. No fee is required. That way if one disk is registered 100-1000 times they know somethings a miss. Problem solved! If they do this I'm in. If there's a fee I'm out it's that simple.
This is stupid. Why not get it through the cable box and turn off the xbox? Not even MS is that stupid.
If they charge fees for used games I hope it bombs worse than any console in history! It's what the greedy sniveling bas@#$% deserve. They will throw out the excuse it's because you have to install the game. BS they designed it that way with this in mind in the first place. If MS doesn't get rid of the fee They don't even exsist in my gaming world anymore. It's a shame because other than this awful greedy move I like the console.
I personally love the new console and it's features but I simply won't accept fees of any kind for used games. That kind of greedy sniveling BS I just won't tolerate. The online stuff I can deal with. Hell the 360 has most of that nonsense right now. It's mildly annoying but not a huge deal.
