Re: Xbox Live's Major Nelson addresses the concerns over the Xbox One

Tell the Kinect to turn off and it'll be off, except it won't be because it'll still be listening for you to turn on. So that's... well, not really off at all.

And it's OK, if you aren't connected to the internet you can still watch F**KING TV THROUGH YOUR GAMES CONSOLE KIDS LOVE TV

Publishers can however choose to still charge you to trade in their games.

Did somebody say EA?

I'd MUCH prefer if the developers chose this but sadly, it won't happen like that.

Basically Microsoft are like "well we designed it so that people can charge, but WE'RE not actually charging..." finger of blame pointing elsewhere.

Re: Xbox Live's Major Nelson addresses the concerns over the Xbox One

Sad thing is, it will end up reflecting badly on devs, who will suffer cos money hungry pubs will be charging copious amounts of coin for games that have been lovingly toiled on by the developers, who will then have no say on whether their game is free or not.

Re: Xbox Live's Major Nelson addresses the concerns over the Xbox One

I was wondering if they may have missed a detail on the "24 hour check in" thing - it mentions that 'feature' surrounded by notes that talk about the games from the cloud. Would it not make masses of sense to by-pass that check you know, if I had the disc still in the console. Surely that's proof enough that I have it... :|

Re: Xbox Live's Major Nelson addresses the concerns over the Xbox One

So what if you go on holiday and cant check in on Xbox for a week, will it set on fire and no longer be usable?

Come on Sony, you have a great chance here to make Playstation great again, You already won the hardware battle, 50% faster graphics, the gaming side of the software looks won, sort the rest out and Playstation is king once again!

I just don't understand how you can screw up a games console so badly. It has one job!

Re: Xbox Live's Major Nelson addresses the concerns over the Xbox One

But it's not a games console. It's an entertainment centre.
