    My problem with the name? I just read the headline as "One XBox will..." which was confusing.

    Reasons why people bought a Xbox 360 over a computer. 1. You didn't have to install games. 2. If you didn't like a game you could sell it and get some money back. 3. Able to buy old used games that are no longer available new. Now new Xbox you must install the game and its only for that one console so in other words it is an under powered computer that hooks to your TV. New Xbox vs computer and the computer wins hands down. So enjoy your under powered computer new Xbox owners.

    So EA announces they are dropping online passes from their games and then MS does this, basically creating universal online/offline passes? A great partnership for the future of gaming... Really disappointing, and I love my 360. System is impressive though.

    This is exactly it. EA obviously had a heads up, and pulled out their online pass system. Instead, all Xbox One games will not only be "online passed" but the WHOLE game will be. Also wondering how it'll work if you sell your game copy, and you can still play it on your machine. But then if the machine dies, and you get a new one. How do you recover the game you sold? Will you need to download a whole 50gb game from Microsoft's servers?

    A little different though, with eBooks you can easily pass a tablet over to a family member and be like "hey, look at this". There is nothing for them to mess around with. But an Xbox Live account? You wouldn't want people messing with it. It's personal to you, and includes and tracks your data. Your achievement scores etc... It would be INSANE to need your family to pay for a copy each just because you want to track gamerscore seperately...

    Perhaps it really is time to start investing in a gaming level computer...

    I'm just going to leave this here:

    As long as it allows multiple accounts tied to a single Xbox, this shouldn't be an issue to me. I never sell my games, and don't buy used because You only save like $5 at gamestop. However, if my brother cant' log into my xbox and play the game as well, then xbox and I are going to have issues.

    Oh look, yet another reason to stop giving a shit about the downgraded box.

    Doesn't this also mean that before you connect your Xbox to the internet AND create a Live Account you won't be able to play any games? This isn't always online, but it certainly demands the internet to properly function.

    "In a post answering "top questions" about the Xbox One, the official Microsoft page notes the system "does not have to be always connected, but Xbox One does require a connection to the Internet." There you go. If you don't have internet, you can't play the new Xbox One.

    So for Redbox, Gamestop, etc.... Microsoft is playing with loaded dice?
  • tomasspipass - May 21, 2013 11:42 a.m.

    I expect Sony will do something similar on the PS4. Next gen looks to be more of a focus on downloading smaller digital releases combined with buying fewer AAA retail releases. The retail releases that get 8/10 likely will continue trend and end up selling less and less. Single player 10 hour long games will rarely sell at retail instead going direct to digital. what do you guys think?

    That sucks. Gamestop's stock price is probably going to sink on this news.
  • Pooka - May 21, 2013 11:50 a.m.

    Good. Gamestop needs to go the fuck out of business already, I can't understand why the hell people still go there.

    This means if you rent any new games when they are released you would get a full priced game for €5
