  1. Rumors about some sort of anti-used game protection being planned for the next-generation Xbox have surfaced on several occasions over the past year. Although I’ve always been skeptical about a supposed “always on, always connected” requirement for the console, today...

    If a console ever require to be always online to be able to play games I will not buy it. Also if Microsoft still require a membership to just be able to play online I will not buy their next console, they should do a membership like Sony does, it just makes more sense.

    Pretty much what I've been saying; the next box won't have always on DRM. Too many gullible people and too many PS fanboys -_-

    Geez man! If this rumor is true then that's greedy. We cannot sell game to store anymore plus we cannot bring disc to friend's house and play. It is total waste. I like old times. Dumb people will go for it so they can show off, as smart people refuse buy for good reason. Either no choice cause they stop make games for old console then push you to get next generation? That's a question which I wonder?

    True, and it's a great news story for those who love ripping on MS. And the truth has never stopped any number of people from spouting off about how they're 'not going to buy something from another greedy company'.
  6. I'm going to stick with my Atari VCS2600. They wont get me with this anti used games stance...

    It's not a bug, it's a feature.

    This wasn't what bugged me about an xbox. I have internet. PC is a different story.
    Now the rumor of no-used-game support, thats bugging me greatly. Not getting Durango if that turns out to be the case.
