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!

We didn't lose track. There is no option A where the disc is "removable" and you can play the game. all game discs will be like PC games, a one-time download medium tied to a serial number AND your online account (so at this point you cannot even uninstall and physically hand over the serial key like warcraft or Starcraft used to)

Effectively, these are MORE LOCKED than even Apple's App Stores that at least let you have 5 copies on ipad/iphones for one price.

If you don't like what Microsoft is doing, don't buy it, find alternatives. You are still free to do so.

Haha. Missing an argument? So instead of trying to change company's opinion, about how ppl do feel about their offered limitation, all you can say is just - buy, or shut up and go elsewhere? You must be a genius :-)
