Pretty sure, yeah. I don't know if this becomes conflicting if both people want to play at the same time (aka you can't log on your account now that he's on).

So then... what is the point of it? I mean ok so you install the game on your system but you can hand the disk to your friend and uninstall the disk from your hard drive and let your friend use it or have your friend sign in as you and then play the game. Why not just have the license on the disk like every other system ever. What does it prevent? Why add these extra steps?

It prevents used games and it prevents people from pirating the games.

It's absolutely ridiculous how most of the gaming industry still does not understand piracy.

I remember reading somewhere that the rrod problem has been basically eliminated from the next gen Xbox, but I've looked for it and I can't find it anywhere.

That is a major concern for me though, considering I lost one to rrod recentlyish.

Oddly enough, I had more issues with my PS3 than my 360. I know that's probably not common, but it ended up happening like that for me.

Haha, I feel you. I suppose I've been dicked over by Sony in some other areas (not just the PS3) so I do not trust them. I no longer have a PS3 though and there are times when I miss it for certain games (MLB The Show, Little Big Planet, any Naughty Dog game).

I just think Sony is out of touch. I'm a gamer at heart, and will always have a console for games but the fact is people expect a lot more out of consoles. For example, right now I use my console almost exclusively for gaming because I'm not at school and have the luxury of time. When I'm at school it completely changes. I use my Xbox for TV, movies, Netflix, music, etc.

I question if Sony realizes that. Personally, I feel like both console makers are sort of out of touch with things. Xbox has transitioned to a entertainment console with a focus on a wide array of people. Sony is more focused on..I guess gamers? It's hard to tell. The whole pricing fiasco with the PS3 makes me feel like they're completely out of touch too.

Sony just isn't the same company anymore. I use to buy their products because of reliability and reasonable price but I feel like a lot of their stuff I've bought has broke and been overpriced.

And honestly. I don't care about graphic quality that much in a console. Sure, it needs to be an improvement over the previous console but if it means paying $500-600 it's not worth it. If I want a graphically advanced game I'll buy it for my PC, which is much much more powerful than the PS4/Xbox One.

I understand that. I guess it's just a matter of preference.

I will always prefer my PC for gaming except in a few rare instances (exclusives and certain types of games, such as sports)

Yeah, I can put together a XBMC box for ~$250. I dropped $525 on my HTPC, but I also use it to, essentially, replace my PS3 and 360 (Steambox). Right now, my low profile 7750 is beast moding for me. I can replace it when a next-gen low profile card comes out to match the performance of the PS4/XBO for probably ~$160.

PS3 OS is **** and 360 charges you for the same services you get for free on PS3 or on PC. It's ******* dumb.

Absolutely no one thought that. I said CURRENT headsets would not be compatible with the one which is true.

I mean how is that surprising? The xbox headsets werent compatible with the 360 when that released either.

Not to mention its being rumored that kinnect may function for online communication as well, which I think would be pretty fantastic. And before we jump on the "well it will over hear "movie" and stop playing the game and switch to the movie" argument, I'm sure theres a solution for that.

Just wanted to avoid going down that road.

That was actually pretty useful. If they come out with the games tho I'm still intrigued by the xbox1. They better pull all the stops at E3 this year.

Full price to buy the game, not full price to just play it or get it used.

The Xbox One seems a little bit cooler than I was expecting. I'm not sure if I like the new controller, and I almost certainly won't buy it at launch, but I'm not really into videogames as much lately and might prefer more of an entertainment center. The PS4 is almost certainly going to be the better pure gaming system in my opinion, though.

I know, but really theyre just getting rid of borrowing, whereas people are making it sound like you have to pay full price to play your friends borrowed game.

Still doesn't make it any better paying for a full price game when I don't want to buy just to try it. This move also kills places like gamefly, redbox and even the blockbusters that are still open. Xbox has really disappointed me, at this point I don't really care if their exclusives are going to be really good unless I hear something different at e3 I'm going to avoid the system.

I feel no sense of entitlement to those companies and I'm not sure why Microsoft should either. Theyre all going down the drain at this point regardless. Idk, I guess I'm not really all that upset about this.

I think it's more likely that this is going to blow in Microsoft's face and first or second year sales are going to come in well below expected. If 40 years of gaming history has taught us anything, then it's that brand loyalty is almost non-existent. People don't spend several hundred dollars on a console that everybody (fairly or unfairly) criticizes.

I was surprised so many people had issues. My launch day console is still running strong. I put it at my parents house when I upgraded to an hdmi one.

Report: Microsoft Won't Charge a Used Game Fee on the Xbox One

There's been some fuss about how used games work on the Xbox One—do we have to pay a fee to Microsoft to play them? Is Microsoft killing used games dead? Supposedly, no. Polygon is reporting that the Xbox One will NOT require gamers to pay a fee to reactivate an Xbox One used game.

However, Polygon notes, there will still be "a regular online spot check" to verify the authenticity of the used game being played. Which is like basically requiring users to always have their Xbox One connected to the Internet (another big issue with gamers).

This might be a stupid question but why do people care about always having it connected to the internet?

There were some really bad issues with Diablo 3 and Sim City 5... Although I don't think there is a constant check with the Xbox One. Just like once a day or something.
