Games At an event earlier today, Microsoft unveiled the next Xbox - the third model, but confusingly named Xbox One. The big focus was TV, integrated Kinect, and all the other stuff we all expected to be forced down our throats. I think it took them 25 minutes to actually come to what should be the core of the story: gaming. Nothing groundbreaking in the gaming department, except for how Microsoft intends to handle the used games market and borrowing games from friends: pay up, buddy!

I didn't say you didn't have common sense. I said you need to approach it as such i.e. we have no numbers on the numbers of pirates and I accept it is a Russell's Teapot Scenario in a lot of cases.

When I was talking about a "lot of piracy" I was talking about the past (especially the PS2 era)

Piracy happens a lot less because of online services because of Xbox live, this is simply an extension of this. Piracy on the original half life was a lot harder if you wanted to play multi-player and look where that brought us.

As a developer, I think this is a good thing.
