what did it say?
Well according to the websites that could get at it, no more always online and that the discs will be handled like the 360. Used/loan/trade-in etc
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! The pre-order numbers must have been enough to scare MS. Too little, too late for me. Not changing the PS4 pre-order.

Also no region lock?
ya i saw that too. hmmmmm interesting.
HAHA! And the gamer wins. Personally I don't mind the always online for some stuff, but not even being able to play a SP game without it is way too much.
Now I am pissed, because the virtual sharing is going away. That part was fucking awesome. Actually, the gamer doesn't win.
This is sweet, sweet news. Now if only they would announce that the corporate puppet Don Mattrick is 'moving on'....
Q: Will Xbox One allow players to trade in, purchase and play pre-owned games? A: We are designing Xbox One to enable customers to trade in and resell games.
We'll have more details on that later.WHAT "details"? Either it will allow used games or not.
Wow. Might have to switch my preorder. http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2013/06/rumor-microsoft-set-to-reverse-controversial-game-licensing-policies/
that is from the page without the update.
FragEm, MS did a total reverse. The One will allow used games just as the 360 does.
DoT, I just copy and pasted the Q&A from the news page. Why the need to share more details later if the policy is the same as the 360? I hope future "details" don't
mess things up for everyone.
Nevermind. I was reading an older "update". New one I read is clear as a bell. Too bad M$ only did this to keep up with Sony and not for their customers.
http://news.xbox.com/2013/06/updateis the official link from MS... looks like MS is listening...
I'll take it lol
From the president himself.. Don Mattrick....http://news.xbox.com/2013/06/update
I also saw that now that Sony is charging for PSN some countries can't have online MP http://www.gamesreviews.com/news/06/ps4-online-blocked-for-countries-without-a-store
Futiles : They didn't say the sharing would go away though so maybe that will stick around
This is starting to look really good. But not sure if they're backing down or all that happened since day one has been part of a marketing program
Actually they did "These changes will impact some of the scenarios we previously announced for Xbox One. The sharing of games will work as it does today"
Well, making you think that they are backing down can be part of a marketing program. I love conspiracies, just like the dude at my gamerpic :)
It isn't a conspiracy, Xbox.com is updated, and the presser says digital versions cannot be shared.
You're obviously not understanding what I'm saying but no worries. It's difficult for me to explain in english. Anyway I'm happy to see how the Xbox One will be
Conspiracy theory #13: The original hardware that set restrictions will remain inside the system. Restrictions will return in a mandatory update after major console sales
@herb, So you think they are lying to get people to buy the console and when you get the console it will still be the same as before they made this announcement?
^^^It is possible...but unlikely.
Nope, I think that they just tried to make people talk about the console, even if it was for bad, because they knew how the gamming community will react to the
annoucement of the first news we had about the console. Now that everyone is talking about the Xbox One, they say they're changing most of the things
and do it the way that most of the community will like. Not sure if it makes sense, will like to elaborate but not in the comments section and is hard for me in english.
I think is just a well thought movement by MS marketing. Is always better to go from bad news to good, rather tan from good news to bad. This last thing is what
is going to happen to Sony, as they have based all the advertisement on talking shit about the Xbox One.
So, other discless features won't work. Instant switching and smart match making are both likely gone
I think as long as you are online the cloud features are there, except for what involved licensing.
The doctor is saying any publicity is good publicity. And I want my game consoles to play games first anyway.
@Ryot, right, play games first, like playing Dead Rising 3 while your BF4 lobby loads up and preps the match, then instant jumping over when ready. Dead feature
Not necessarily a dead feature. Could still work with content that IS purchased digitally. So you could play a XBLA game while waiting for that BF4 lobby.

They took each other's playbooks from last pre-gen.

Oh no. Is this the same guy who told me to get a 360 if I wanted to game offline?
That is indeed the same person.
Oh, I went to buy a movie, but I don't have a blu-ray player, and those asshats insulted me with DVDs. What douchebags.
Buy an Xbox One. It will play BluRays. Problem solved.
no company wins two gens in a row for public favor
I just thought it was a funny comment. That being said, I still have both pre-ordered. I have been playing my PS3 more, getting into some of the exclusives there.
What's your PSN id?
Mango, send futiles a friend request on PSN, I will have a PS4 by March, too.
Thats one fugly xbone headset.
How many analysts really predicted a price higher than $499? I think that was the high end of the reasonable guess range.
$499 was the price for the high end xbox at the start of last gen. $599 was a joke for PS3... Imagine if MS announced X1 as $599. It would be over without a doubt.
My PSN ID is TheMighty_mango as someone else took my name....bastards.
lol Almost makes me feel like a sucker...I build cars up the same way to customers..."You're practically stealing this thing from me with the sunroof, leather,
touch screen nav, and rear entertainment system. Retails a bargain!"
I will have a PS3 in a week or so. Just to mess around between xbox releases.
My PSN ID is the same as my gamertag, feel free to add me :)
The fact that Don Mattrick founded EA will probably surprise nobody
And by that you meant he founded a company that was eventually purchased by EA which was founded by Trip Hawkins right?
Mango, I'll throw you a PSN friend request... I'm SoullessSHOES on PSN.
Mango I wont throw you anything on PSN. I am not getting another PS3. I had one never used it. Plenty of 360 games to still play.
^^well duh I have 3 Trophies on my account now...amazing.
I never really use my PS3 except blurays, but I do have smrnov on PSN on there if you add me Mango.
You have more trophies than shoes does!
Yeah, The Last of Us is stingy on trophies... I did have like 7 trophies on my old account!
If one of you buys me a PS3 i will let Ryan add me on PSN.
Just get a PS4!
added you mango and smrnov
Hope you guys didn't get the last firmware update...makes one expensive paper weight. lol
Did you wear your favorite Disney Princess costume while playing?

Dam ur mom looks hawt in it lol.
I would hope so...because I'm DEAD SEXY in a green tutu
Tinkerbell is my fave too! You guys are an understanding bunch, when I told my co-workers I dress up as her they all made fun of me and still bring it up lol
That explains your equipment in Happy Wars...
lol I just use the highest rated equipment I have, i was dressed as a mummy when I played with you
Matt gawd its a joke..
I thought you were completely serious.
I really like this game
Better than I expected.
I'm still thinking about what to do. But not sure if changing to PS is the solution, I'll keep waiting before I make my choice
I'm on the fence, which is fine for me, since I won't be getting a Day One system of either variety. I really like the extra features of the One, but PS4 is cost-effectiv
If the rest of the conference shows good third-party support for Sony, well, that makes a PS4 very likely.
I ain't buying it for a while. Ill keep playing my 360 games
I'm still holding out that MAYBE...just MAYBE, MS will rethink things....especially now.
I'm hoping MS has the ability (and desire) to rethink things too. As of right now, we're all thinking PS4 over here.
I'm thinking both.
I predict DRM backtrack or price drop but not both
So what if publishers put their own restrictions on? There is nothing to stop a game publisher from coding restrictions into their software.
And what if publishers force Sony to flip flop later?
As for the 24 hour check-in, I can't remember the last time I was 24 hr without my console connected to the Internet.
Coming from Sony the same company who made a root kit for music cds and SecuRom the worst copy protection for PC games.
It's the publishers and developers that want DRM so Sony can say "We don't require DRM, it's the publishers fault"
Not saying Microsoft is right, just that Sony are lying bitches (where are my 2 HDMI ports on the PS3?)
Yes, remember dual-boot, every game will be HD at 60 fps, backwards compatible is a must, multiplayer will always be free? Sony flip flops a lot...
If pubs and devts want DRM Sony will have to flip flop there too...
/\ Very true, it's what I was expecting in the first place.
But, doesn't Sony already have even more restrictive DRM on Vita?
Yes, Sony has an extremely restrictive DRM on Vita - Proprietary Format and low Sales (It really is a nice machine, just supported like shit)
Just ordered my PS4. MS shit the bed compared to Sony yesterday. I hate to leave the gamerscore ecosystem, but it's not even close.
And with the 24 hour rule, has no one ever taken their system away for a weekend? In my case to tailgate parties. Can't do that with XBO.
And the PS4 is not region-locked :D
Sony will still have DRM, just leaving it up to third-party publishers (just as MS is). Difference is: Sony won't involve licenses and MS does.
@DJP519. I bring my cellular hotspot everywhere I go (with a booster)... I am always able to be online. I know not everyone can afford it but it works for me.
No used game support = no new console....or at least until some games hit the cheap bins. No preorder for me either.
You changed your mind frag? I think there will be used games, maybe just not right away.
When they correct their used game stance I'll buy a console early, if not I'll wait until games hit the cheap bins and then get it.
I pre-ordered a ps4 today. I had pre-ordered a xbone and it took my friend to convince me not to cancel it
lol I had the same experience Mango...too many good times on the 360 to just quit cold turkey.
Need to take a stand on principle. Even if it it won't affect you personally, need to send a message to MS that this is not OK.
I also preordered a PS4, I hate everything about the new Xbox.
Not buying a console on release but when I do get one it'll be a ps4.
