Xbox One Is Going Down In Flames

These days, it’s pretty well known the Xbox One has some DRM features that many gamers are none too happy about. The system is actually designed to limit what you can do with the games you have purchased, and gives most of the control over whether you can resell a game to the publisher. It also limits gifting of games, and phones home every 24 hours. Truthfully, aside from the phoning home every 24 hours, it’s not as bad as the typical PC DRM (though really, it’s just barely better, so we’re splitting hairs a bit), but PC games are typically cheaper than console games since they are usually sold as digital downloads. In addition, consoles are also supposed to be simpler to use. Just turn on and go.

So it’s no surprise that Microsoft is getting panned pretty hard. Let’s start with a 2 minute video interpretation of Microsoft’s unveiling of the console prior to E3.

TV. Sports. Halo TV. Call of Duty. Let’s be honest, the first intro was all about what Xbox One does as an entertainment center, not what it does as a video game console. They showed a couple games, but spent maybe 5 out of 35 minutes talking about games, and most of the rest talking about the non-gaming entertainment it does. Really, I just wanted to play games. To be fair, at E3, they actually did go quite a bit more in depth on the games, and the games themselves look pretty cool. Of course, that’s not the highlight. The highlight of Microsoft’s commentary on the Xbox One come in the next clip.

Microsoft’s advice to those who don’t have Internet available? Get a 360, because that’s an offline device. Oh, you wanted next gen? They’ve got nothing for you then. Admittedly, Internet connectivity isn’t a big issue for most people in the U.S., but there are places both here and in other countries where Internet is not always readily available. I’m going to go ahead and suggest they get a PS4 or Wii U, depending on their tastes. I imagine most who were looking at Xbox One will be far more interested in a PS4 though.

Of course, this isn’t the only thing. Remember how I mentioned Microsoft is implementing some very strict DRM in terms of what console lovers are used to dealing with? Well, Sony wants to have their say on this as well. So, they have created a brief instructional video on how to share PS4 games. Yes, here it is.

Very simple, no? Now, to be fair, Sony is leaving it as an option for publishers to require registration of games online, but this is a far cry from the system Microsoft has put in place locking all used game sales to authorized retailers, as well as limiting how games can be shared and gifted. Also, PS4 doesn’t require access to the Internet to play your games (aside from registration for publishers who require it, who, by the way, are lame).

What does the above mean for Microsoft and Sony? Well, I think it means Sony has a giant advantage in the upcoming console war. Probably much larger than the one Sony conceded to Microsoft between PS3 and 360.

Alternatively, Reddit user AWildSketchAppeared summarized it all with the following picture: Xbox One.

I don’t think anything else really needs to be said.

    Juresta kwam meestal bij ons zeuren dat het een niet haalbare incasso was en dat
    wij Juresta moesten betalen. Als we dan toch wilden doorzetten lieten ze de incasso zaak
    versloffen. Een ander probleem was dat Juresta wil dat voordat ze iets aan hun klant
    uitkeren dat die klant allemaal fax formulieren verstuurt.
    En ze lieten het ons niet weten als er geld op de rekening bij Juresta
    binnenkwam. Wij adviseren iedereen een ander incassobureau te zoeken, wij zijn nu bij een ander bureau zeer tevreden.
