I'm not a console man, the last one i owned was/is PS2 but even i can see how stupid the new xbox is. How did they ever think all of this was a good idea?

They were probably thinking big money and that Sony would follow suit.

Honestly I am thinking the publishers themselves were pushing hard on it and MS thought Sony was going for it as well so they did all this DRM stuff. Now that Sony has shown no they aren't going down that road, MS is in damage control mode (they are policing comments/taking down videos now), and they are probably kicking themselves in the ass.

Just look at this voting poll (Amazon asked users to vote for which console they want).

There were reports of Sony wanting to copyright something to do with restrictions at one point. If that's true, it probably helped MS decide to go down that road.

I wonder if it can be forced by the publisers though? Like an escalation of the online passes. I can see EA or activation doing something like that for sure.

EA came out and said they are no long doing online passes (the pass you got to pay for to play online if you don't buy new), and then a week later MS comes out and says no used games. It's very obvious that EA stopped online passes because they won't be needed on the Xbox One as they don't do used games (EA even has a special partnership with MS).

What's going to be interesting is to see if EA brings back online passes for PS4 games, I'd say nobody is stupid enough to come out and say "we are no longer doing passes because we know our fans don't want them" and then go back to them now that the PS4 doesn't block used games, but we are talking about EA here.

At this point the Atari Jaguar sounds better then the Xbox One. Your friend is going to feel awfully silly if MS decides to get out of the business and shut there network down. Then that Xbox One will be nothing but a useless hunk of scrap sitting in a corner. I can't believe they thought that was a good idea.

Which makes it all the worse. They thought Sony was being greedy so they decided lets follow suit and be even greedier. Never mind you'd be screwing over the consumer who helped support your damn company. Even if MS were to scrap the Xbox One and came out with something that didn't blow ass I wouldn't buy it. As soon as MS stops making games for the 360 I'm done with them.


Also, If Sony had done the same thing I guarantee you that Nintendo would have won the console wars.
