Do you think all these shitty moves will result in an actual loss in market share in the next gen?

PC gamers have managed without trade ins for years, if there was an Xbox store with frequent steam style low low price deals on older stuff I might actually consider buying a console. As it is paying $50 is too much.. I wonder what the economics would mean if they sold more new games but at a say, 25-30 price point to cut away at used game stores.
As much as I dislike paying 50 for a game I tend to dislike big corporations like EB who are essentially making a great proportion of their profits by operating like pawn store shysters.

PC games are great because you can just pirate them for free

It's probably for mod checking or to force system updates on you

yeah because there's plentiful pirate versions that are easy to get. Do you think console gamers would care about the used market if they could download torrent versions?

the no trade ins/used games will be fine assuming there's a marketplace like Steam constantly putting out great deals on older games

I have 0 faith in Microsoft doing that however

it's not as good, but it's worth it. a new expansion is coming out soon, and it looks fairly promising.
I reduced the temples of Elam to naught; their gods and goddesses I scattered to the winds. The tombs of their ancient and recent kings I devastated, I exposed to the sun, and I carried away their bones toward the land of Ashur.

well i borrow games from my roommate/friends sometimes, so it sounds really god damn stupid to not be able to do that. i don't buy/sell games so i don't care that much. it's just a really bizarre concept to me.

you'll still be able to share games with their "family" sharing system. it's the one good faith gesture from microsoft since you could theoretically split the difference on all your game purchases among 10 of your friends. but the rest is still a self-interest guided and publisher pandering closed loop of unnecessary protective measures. especially if they're not selling their console at a loss this time around

Since the One is going to have so much software based DRM I have a feeling it'll all get hacked within a few months of launch making all of the restrictions in legit users seem ridiculous.

I mean it's probably too late any way. I've owned both current xboxes but there's no way I'm buying this one.

The hope is that Sony has watched the backlash and will come out without all this shit but I fully expect ps4 to shit the bed as well

used games/DRM bullshit aside, though, Sony just seem to have their shit together strategically much more than Microsoft's bizarre bid to make everyone crowd around a single holy television again
