    Sony kills Xbox One -where now for MS


    Well done SONY!!!

    Maybe that will help show these mega corps that users value their liberty.

    Will MS take that on board for their operating systems? Only if there is a viable alternative which does not seek to control and manipulate the users.

    It might be coming.

    Final nail in the coffin for Xbox One ?

    AMEN SONY! That little thing might end up being a huge sticking point for people not adopting the new XBox. Let's see how long it takes before MS drops the total control over what you do with the games you buy.

    It's not just used games. It is the whole MS drm signing in kinect spying crap.

    SONY listens to the customers.

    Well looks like Sony hit the nail on the head, and actually listened.

    I am not a big consol gamer, but I would buy a PS4 over an XBone simply because of the always connected and DRM crap. I live in the sticks and have pretty good satalite internet, but it would suck to have a couple days of heavy storms and I can't watch TV and I have no internet so I couldn't even play a game a or two, not even single player.

    For that matter because I don't game alot, I am sure not spending a bunch of money on new games that I can't loan out or trade in. In my little town we have two red boxes, that is where I grab most of the new releases to try them out before waiting a bit for them to start coming up at a game exchange retail. I wonder how the redbox effect will hurt MS.

    That second video is funny, the people in my office thought I was crazy the way I was laughing...

    Is MS trying to put themselves out of buisness?!

    Geeve

    So you DO know if the Kinect spies on you or is it just the aluminum hat that you wear talking?

    All this FUD that spews on the internet officially makes me declare that the internet does not like logic...

    Microsoft is only imposing certain DRM rights, which I think aren't needed really. The ONLY DRM right that is the controversy is if game developers decide to imposed DRM management to prevent disk swapping between consoles. That probably won't really happen in masse. But Microsoft really should clear up some DRM on the Xbox because again, the internet has no logic and can't figure things out like this. Not only that, it does complicate things.

    Now this talk that the PS4 will outsell the new Xbox...doubt it there bubs. First off, more game content is available on the Xbox. The Xbox is most widely used console, whether it be the 360 or later the One. It has more features, and with the internet going, the power of three consoles versus a simple PS4. Content is what sells, not the console itself. You buy the console for the content. If there is more desirable, and more content in general for the Xbox, that is what will make it sell.

    Also, if Microsoft doesn't let up on their DRMing, I do see a LOT of mod youtube videos on how to offline your Xbox One...
