Games Yes, it's as bad as we expected. This particular paragraph illustrates everything that is wrong with what Microsoft is doing: "Xbox One is designed so game publishers can enable you to give your disc-based games to your friends. There are no fees charged as part of these transfers. There are two requirements: you can only give them to people who have been on your friends list for at least 30 days and each game can only be given once." Yes, with this, Microsoft and publishers are destroying the ability to sell your games on Ebay or similar sites (because of the 30-day requirement). To make matters worse, the ability to sell or even loan games to your friends can be disabled by publishers. Asinine.

I'm not sure the movie comparison works. You can see one of those for $8 or so. Or buy the dvd for $20. Or watch it on Netflix for cheaper that that. We're talking about $50-60 for a game you could easily be tired of in a week. And really what is the excuse for a game costing more than a movie anyway?

But you folks who have money to throw around should definitely do just that because the economy needs all the stimulation it can get.
