    At this point does it even matter? Microsoft left the door cracked by trying to be vague about what their DRM plan was and Sony kicked that door off it's hinges. Even if you're right and the two consoles end up having similar DRM strategies, the damage has been done. Microsoft has a lot of work to do to clean up this perception they have created that they are preventing you from lending out and borrowing games.
    They definitely have a PR nightmare on their hands and every time they have a higher up talk it seems to get worse. Now someone came out and said if you have connectivity issues or none at all the 360 is your system not the X1. Whoever is in charge of their PR department needs to put a gag order out to everyone.

    Destiny, MGS5, Titanfall, and The Division are definitely the new games that have me excited for next gen. Saints Row 4 looks to be some brainless fun and AC4 will just be awesome to be a pirate.

    Beat Batman: Arkham City. Now time to finish up the side quests and find all the Riddler trophies. I have found 275 out of 400. My God, how can there be that many left? I still don't have 1 gadget and it's not even unlocked. I know I'll need that before I can get some Riddler trophies. Need to Google how I unlock it. There are 4 or 5 Riddler trophies that I've come across that I just can't figure out. Although, I had a moment of clarity on how to get one as I was falling asleep last night. Wasn't even thinking about the game, but it just popped into my head.

    I doubt I get all those trophies, but I'll do all the side quests. Completed all the VR trainings too...only 1 gave me fits, but I finally got it yesterday.

    Might get Red Dead Redemption GotY edition for my next game. Mass Effect 3 just sits on my table, but I can't bring myself to play it just yet.

    I cannot recommend RDR more for your next game. The world was amazing and it was a great time playing it. Throw in the undead nightmare DLC and it will have you addicted.

    This will want to make you play multi-player GTA IV. I recommend watching Rooster Teeth/Let's Play videos as well, some of the best gaming stuff online.

    I still think that the PlayStation has much better exclusives that might ultimately win me over. I'd really need a handy chart of exclusives for each system to see though.

    It depends what you are looking for. If you are looking for a more grounded world and story you may like GTA better, but overall I think SR3 is just a much more enjoyable experience.

    I already have well over 3/4 of my Xbox One preorder paid off. That's a good thing.

    I bought Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D for my 3DS. Both fun.

    I find it hilarious that with the PS4 announcement everyone suddenly has a secluded summer house without broadband internet or is stationed on a Nuclear Submarine.

    Also:

    2. If I were to buy a Wii U, can I download my classic Nintendo games to it that I already bought once before on the original Wii, or do I have to double-purchase them?
    Yes and no. If you purchased the Virtual Console title it and it's saved data will be transferrable from your Wii. If the Virtual Console title came pre-loaded with your Wii (maybe you bought it used or had a promo bundle) then no. There is an app in the Nintendo eShop on the Wii U that will ease the transfer process and make it seamless.

    I want to help out with a little bit of clarity on the Xbox One's "DRM" and Online "Check-In" policies and why I am still getting the Xbox One over anything else. (I do have a Wii U and LOVE it!)

    Access your entire games library from any Xbox One—no discs required: After signing in and installing,you can play any of your games from any Xbox One because a digital copy of your game is stored on your console and in the cloud. So, for example, while you are logged in at your friend’s house, you can play your games.


    Share access to your games with everyone inside your home: Your friends and family, your guests and acquaintances get unlimited access to all of your games. Anyone can play your games on your console--regardless of whether you are logged in or their relationship to you.


    Give your family access to your entire games library anytime, anywhere: Xbox One will enable new forms of access for families. Up to ten members of your family can log in and play from your shared games library on any Xbox One. Just like today, a family member can play your copy of Forza Motorsport at a friend’s house. Only now, they will see not just Forza, but all of your shared games. You can always play your games, and any one of your family members can be playing from your shared library at a given time.


    Trade-in and resell your disc-based games: Today, some gamers choose to sell their old disc-based games back for cash and credit. We designed Xbox One so game publishers can enable you to trade in your games at participating retailers. Microsoft does not charge a platform fee to retailers, publishers, or consumers for enabling transfer of these games.


    In our role as a game publisher, Microsoft Studios will enable you to give your games to friends or trade in your Xbox One games at participating retailers. Third party publishers may opt in or out of supporting game resale and may set up business terms or transfer fees with retailers. Microsoft does not receive any compensation as part of this. In addition, third party publishers can enable you to give games to friends. Loaning or renting games won’t be available at launch, but we are exploring the possibilities with our partners.

    The first part I really think is a killer feature. Sure, it's DRM. But honestly, you'd think if you buy a game (digital or physical copy) then you can use it anywhere. The console is what it is. A console (technologically speaking). It's a gateway into a user environment and all of your software is at your fingertips. This is a model that Microsoft has implemented with Windows 8. If you log into any Windows 8-based PC with your Microsoft ID, all of your data, personalization settings and software is right there for you to use. All based in the cloud. This is the way it should be, in the connected world.


    Highlighted in red, is the real kicker here. This is basically what Sony said yesterday. Microsoft *if anything* will only impose strict DRM requirements on Microsoft Studios-published games. So the hard part is reselling or trading-in Halo 2,897. I know, Sony might not do anything, but who remembers online passes for Uncharted 3?


    A new generation of games with power from the cloud: Because every Xbox One owner has a broadband connection, developers can create massive, persistent worlds that evolve even when you’re not playing.


    Your Xbox One is always ready: Xbox One is designed to run in a low-powered, connected state. This means your system, games and apps are always current and ready to play—no more waiting for updates.


    Faster connection to a world of smart devices: With Wi-Fi Direct, Xbox One can speak directly to smart wireless devices and connect to them through the cloud. This means your smartphone or tablet will interact with Xbox One seamlessly.


    Future proofed with power from the cloud: Microsoft has created a global network of more than 300,000 Xbox Live and Windows Azure servers, to help creators realize their visions of what is possible with a connected system.


    While a persistent connection is not required, Xbox One is designed to verify if system, application or game updates are needed and to see if you have acquired new games, or resold, traded in, or given your game to a friend. Games that are designed to take advantage of the cloud may require a connection.


    With Xbox One you can game offline for up to 24 hours on your primary console, or one hour if you are logged on to a separate console accessing your library. Offline gaming is not possible after these prescribed times until you re-establish a connection, but you can still watch live TV and enjoy Blu-ray and DVD movies.

    This part I think infuriates the majority. I understand where everyone is coming from. But where on Earth before last week did everyone suddenly get stationed on a Nuclear Submarine or get a summer beach house without a broadband connection for miles? The Xbox One as stated above was built to take advantage of today's broadband internet connections. Of course not having offline gaming will suck, but how often will you be put into that situation? I for one enjoy being connected to the Xbox Live service whenever I am using my Xbox 360, and not just for gaming. Netflix, etc.

    I don't believe this "DRM" that Microsoft has imposed really does much to hinder the gaming experience, single or multiplayer alike. I hardly doubt that Xbox Live would be hit with some significant outage that will force players to not be able to play their games "offline". Heck, the majority of Xbox 360 owners play online more frequently than they do offline. Look at the achievements system, you have to be online for that to work anyway. This thing has been blown way to far out of proportion to really make much difference with today's hardcore gamers. You're already online, you're probably playing Call of Duty Black Warfare 17 or NBA Vs. Madden Vs. Capcom. Is it REALLY that big of a deal?!

    (BTW, that Windows Azure platform is really nice and a powerful cloud services tool. If you are a techie, try to check it out if you can. There are a ton of videos on YouTube about it.)


    You are in control of when Kinect sensing is On, Off or Paused: If you don’t want the Kinect sensor on while playing games or enjoying your entertainment, you can pause Kinect. To turn off your Xbox One, just say “Xbox Off.” When the system is off, it’s only listening for the single voice command -- “Xbox On,” and you can even turn that feature off too. Some apps and games may require Kinect functionality to operate, so you’ll need to turn it back on for these experiences.


    You are in control of your personal data: You can play games or enjoy applications that use data,such as videos, photos, facial expressions, heart rate and more, but this data will not leave your Xbox One without your explicit permission. Here are a few examples of potential future scenarios:
    • A fitness game could measure heart rate data to provide you with improved feedback on your workout, allow you to track your progress, or even measure calories burned.
    • A card game could allow you to bluff your virtual opponent using your facial expressions.



    • You can use other inputs to control your games, TV and entertainment experiences: While it’s faster to find what you’re looking for using your voice and gesture commands with Kinect, you can use a controller, your remote controls or your smart devices instead. And you can use all of these devices when Kinect is paused.
    But you don't want/need Kinect. Well I am sorry. I myself really enjoy the Kinect. I think when the Wii came out with the motion-based controller it was going to change gaming permanently for a lot of genres. With the current Kinect you can haphazardly navigate the Xbox 360 menus. It's not the best, but the idea is pretty cool. I always have my Kinect plugged in because it does not require a power outlet with the current model Xbox 360s. There is really no reason for me not to have it on. Voice controls make navigating the dashboard easier. With the Xbox One, Kinect "2.0" will be much better in forms of identifying the player and their movements a lot more fluidly and supposedly be able to monitor your heart rate while playing athletic/training-based games. Why have it? Why not...

    Say what you will about what Microsoft's new "DRM" policies, but in my opinion the Xbox One is going to be a major step forward in home entertainment. Especially since the Xbox 360 did that well of a job to begin with.

    As much backlash as the X1 seems to be getting, that's probably the route I am going to take. Whoever went on that rant about PlayStation controllers earlier, I fully agree. For some reason I can't stand those things. I've gotten used to the Xbox and honestly, most of the games I play are sports games anyway. My current Xbox is always connected to the internet, so that doesn't bug me terribly. The exclusives have not mattered to me one iota in the past, so I don't really see that changing.

    Try dealing with a Comcast internet outage and them not being able to dispatch a tech for 2 or 3 business days. I went through that a year ago last summer, not fun without internet as it was, but only being able to play your single player game for a 24 period because your console is absolutely UNACCEPTABLE. In fact, its utterly ridiculous.

    I don't believe this "DRM" that Microsoft has imposed really does much to hinder the gaming experience, single or multiplayer alike.

    Dukie, you know as well as I do to never say never. It wasn't all that long ago that the entire PSN was taken down for almost two months. Is it likely that Xbox Live would have a similar incident happen to them? not really. Is it impossible? Nope. And what happens if my Doomsday prediction should somehow come true? Enjoy having a $500 brick, folks.

    And even should the entirety of Xbox Live not be brought to its knees, what about one's individual account? Unless MS has really improved their hacked account recovery procedures in the last few years, you are going to want to create a ridiculous secured password, or enjoy 90 days with a $500 brick while dealing with Microsoft to get your account recovered and unlocked, as a friend of mine discovered about two years ago.

    I never had any trouble with my account being hacked or with Live being down for long time periods, either. I've had a 360 since 2006.

    It's either them or AT&T, and after AT&T took 5 business days to fix my landline when their equipment failed, I don't have much a choice until Google brings their fiber service here in 2030. Legalized monopolies suck. (besides, as a PC troll, I'm for neither side in the console wars in their pithy spats, I'm for the consumer here.

    Just remember that the PC IS becoming the lead dev platform this generation. Enjoy your lesser superior console ports if your $500 brick wants to cooperate that day. )

    Meh. I was a console gamer first when I was very young, became a PC gamer in the late 90's and then into the early 2000's, then I became mostly a console gamer for the last 6-7 years, and as you may recall I recently built a PC more than capable of allowing me to be a PC gamer again.

    And you know what? I still spend 95% of my time gaming on the 360. I feel like I made a big $$$ mistake with this PC, even though I love having something nice/new/powerful (but unfortunately I'm almost always just using it for work, casual stuff like the web or videos, and when I do game I've gotten more addicted to little independent games that don't need my ridiculous graphics card).

    I've owned SNES, Genesis, N64, PSX, PS2, XBOX, Gamecube, 360, and Wii, all while as I said having a long period of being a PC gamer (back in the days of Starcraft, Diablo, Half-Life, Jedi Knight, up through the first few years of Half-Life 2 and its mods, Doom 3, etc.).

    The point being, I'm not exactly slavish to consoles vs. PC's, or brand X vs. brand Y vs. brand Z in the console department, and quite frankly I think the way PC fanboys go on and on about the superior versions of their games vs. the console ports is vastly overblown. Is it true? Sometimes, but even when it is, it's usually not that big of a deal in my opinion. I made my recent dive back into PC gaming because I wanted alternative experiences, and I suppose to try to recapture something I used to have when I was younger (sometimes by literally re-installing old games from back then), not because I thought I was going to buy the same games I was buying on a console in the first place (like Call of Duty or NBA 2K)

    And I think poking at any one group or their system of choice is just kind of silly and pointless. Especially when the best arguments are that you may lose Internet for days at a time (which I rarely did with Comcast, never have with fiber optic thus far in the past couple years) or Live is going to be offline for days at a time (never recall experiencing that) or my account is going to be hacked (never happened in 7 years).

    Feels to me like you're trying too hard to rattle a cage or something (especially with the '$500 brick' talk), and I don't really see a reward in it for you, so I don't get why you're continuing to do it.

    Since launch in November 2005 (yes, I get all my Xboxes on launch...) I've gone just one legit day without being able to get on Live due to a technical error. There was a time in 2010 when I bought my house that I was without internet for a couple of days, but by then I was getting to catch up on some Nintendo DS titles.

    PC troll gotta troll.

    And I'm not saying that Xbox Live is going to go down or get hacked like PSN did, but what if it DOES? Does Microsoft have a plan in place for a "Doomsday" scenario like that?

    Steam has an offline mode in place, its not a problem with PS4 disc-based titles because they aren't forcing consoles to check in, but what is Microsoft's plan for a worst-case scenario? What are they going to do to keep their product from becoming what would basically be a $500 brick (not trying to rattle any cages, thats the best way of describing what I see happening)?

    I've seen enough launches (including the entire first year of Steam ) to know that whatever is going to go wrong probably WILL.

    If it happens, which we all doubt anyway so this is largely pointless, but if it happens, they'll take a P.R. hit, there will be a vocal minority of outrage, the servers will eventually come back on, and 95+% of us will simply continue using our Xbox One's after that moment is over.

    What is steam's offline policy?

    I wouldn't be shocked if there are early issues, though I doubt anything catastrophic, and I think mainly I feel that way because they've had a decade of experience with Xbox Live already, so this isn't anything new or anything they haven't been planning for years already, and with the expansion to 300,000 servers or whatever it is (which is like 20 times as many as before), I think they're pretty well prepared.

    It isn't a policy, its an actual mode. If Steam cannot connect to the Internet, you can still get into titles you have downloaded. It reports it cant connect and asks you if you wish to retry connection or go offline.
