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!

Never mind that if they actually want to play football they can get off the damn couch, go buy a ball, and play it themselves for much cheaper. Try putting DRM on that.

Challenge accepted! They could patent the rules, or the field specs, or the ball design.

Than the next step is to fight piracy and only allow playing at official fields with official balls. The balls could be made to "expire" (explosively) 3 hours after the first use.

Any then, they should go labeling people criminals (especially abroad) because they don't care about the IP and the American JOBS.

Like it? ;)

You do realize that Football is the most monetized Sport in the world?

I know one gambling company in the UK recently payed in the tens of millions for advertising during the Champions League, Premier League and International Matches.

So if they could do that ... they would.
