Either that or they're targeting the over-50 market.

Worked for the original Wii.

On Xbox One, having all games exist as cloud-connected downloads enables new features like being able to access your entire library at a friend's house with a single login, or loaning games to up to ten "family members" digitally and remotely.

I keep seeing this as a "great" reason for the Xbox One, but what about having to actually download those games first? I mean we're talking Blu-Ray size games so you're looking at gigabytes worth of data. When I got Fable 3 it took 2 hours and that was only 4.5GB.

Battlefield 3 is at over 14GB on the 360, and that's excluding any of the DLCs. They honestly think I want to go to a friend's house and spend hours waiting for a game to download before we can play it?

I know the PS4 will require installations of the games, but that should be a hell of a lot quicker than having to actually download the entire game.

And the cost of 'downloaded' games will now be 50% higher due to a new 'convenience fee'.

The Wii, WiiU, Xbox360, Xbox One, PS3, and PS4 give users the ability to purchase and download games. The fact that only one of those systems is sending a hearty vaffanculo to physical media owners is an advantage how exactly?

"As you go into a digital world, what's happening is publishers are choosing to have different business models and consumers are saying 'Hey, if I can't resell the title, provide me a different way to get value to get into your game.' And we think the market will be efficient in finding good models that work for consumers."

Yeah, ask libraries how well that's worked out for them surrounding e-books.

Fark you, Yusuf Mehdi.

I haven't played games since PS2 but are there any benefits to actually having to install the games on your console or is that just a thing the company does to try to prevent piracy?
 
2013-06-13 02:49:49 PM
Digital just like UFIA.

It helps with load times.

It can load textures and levels faster, in some cases.

My theory is they're actually TRYING to make every mistake possible ahead of time so they can release something only halfway lame and redeem themselves at the last moment.

It's like Microsoft is purposely doing the complete opposite of everything they should be. Like they said "man, I want to f*ck our company into the ground this generation"

Can't believe MS is going with this idiotic idea.

Video games are for children, drug addicts and other dead wood.
I prefer reading books and doing crosswords, thus indicating to the whole world that I'm not easily fascinated by flashy lights and have some sort of grasp on non-immediate rewards.

Are the books and crosswords puzzles video game themed? I am having a hard time understanding what you're saying.

On ps4 you can digitally play ps2 and 3 games, that's the big advantage for me. I never had ps2 or 3 and I want to play some of those exclusives like Rez.
 
2013-06-13 03:21:34 PM
Those digital "benefits" will be available at launch, but Mehdi hinted that the digital rights management transition might unlock some more interesting game access and distribution methods later on.

Let me stop you right there, Meh.  DRM is the opposite of unlocking.  By its very definition, it locks and restricts the use of digital content.  Digital content distributes just fine without DRM.

Trying to "New Coke" a console would be the stupidest, most tone-deaf thing Microsoft could possibly...wait, yep. I bet you're right.

fastfxr: Can't believe MS is going with this idiotic idea.


My guess is that they've seen what Apple and Google have done with their stores.  Now they want a piece of that action.  Only problem?  Smart Phone/Tablet "apps" /= Console games.

Gamers love steam. Microsoft sees steam as a competitor, and copies the steam business model. Gamers hate Xbox one. You can't explain that.

I'm honestly more pissed off about Konami throwing David Hayter under the bus for Keifer farking Sutherland than I am about the Xbox One.

"Oh hey guys we have one of the most iconic video game characters of all time who has been voiced by the same guy since video game characters had voices but you know what lets change it up and get that guy from 24 to do our voices."

/I'll end up getting an Xbox One and a PS4 and probably spend more time gaming on my PC anyway
//seriously Konami you suck
