    next-gen Xbox details emerge, reinforcing reports that used games will be unplayable

    http://news.yahoo.com/next-gen-xbox-...164504269.html
    The mystery surrounding Sony’s (SNE) PlayStation 4 will soon dissipate when the company unveils its next-generation video game console on February 20th. Meanwhile, Microsoft’s (MSFT) upcoming rival console is still very much a mystery, though pieces of the puzzle continue to come together. The latest report comes from Edge, which cites multiple unnamed people with “first-hand experience of Microsoft’s next generation console” in claiming that the new Xbox will require an always-on internet connection to check disc registration in order to function. The report reinforces earlier rumors that Microsoft will restrict or even completely block owners’ ability to play used games.

    Edge also reaffirms specs reported earlier, including a 1.6GHz eight-core AMD CPU, D3D11.x 800MHz graphics and 8GB of RAM, and it says we should expect a new Kinect sensor to launch alongside the console.

    Lol I was just about to post this. I love being to trade in games, so this sucks if true. Will be a pretty big incentive for people to gey the PS4 if Sony doesn't follow suit. Gamestop must be ******** themselves too. Microsoft is digging itself an early grave, I'm not sure there has been a positive reaction to their next gen specs.

    The fact its requiring constant online DRM in order to function is a massive drawback, and frankly ****ing stupid.

    Thats much worse than no used games.

    So if u want to bring a video game to a friends house you won't be able to play it on their system? So gamestop, gamefly, redbox, family video and other retailers are SOL?

    Gamestop's stock also took a pretty big drop today because of the story.

    Yeah if this is true I won't be getting the new Xbox.

    I have absolutely ZERO problem with companys like EA and their online pass thing, because well I think they do deserve to receive some profits off of used games.

    To make them completely unplayable is bull ****. 75% of games I play are used, so this basically ends it for me. I may have to switch to PS4, or just stick with my Wii U.

    The only way this could be tolerable is if they dramatically lower the cost of new games.
    So those days of $60-$65 needs to be dropped to $40 at the minimum.
    If Sony goes for this too this blows.

    I feel like if this is true, there is no way the PS4 won't be doing it too. It would be suicide for XBOX sales I imagine. Unless the console itself just blows the PS4 out of the water (yeah right) or the cost of it is far less than the PS4, I'd imagine people would be flocking to the PS4 like crazy.

    Maybe cheaper original costs for games? (Yeah right again)

    I might not be getting either honestly, but if the XBOX has unplayable used games and the PS4 doesn't and I do decided to get one, I guess I'm switching back to Sony again...reluctantly.

    If this crap is true I am full on going PC gaming. Steam has already started to push me in that direction as it is.
